Sonus Faber Adds Two New Models to Lumina Speaker Collection

The line debuted in Fall 2020 and included two other models, as well as a center channel speaker option.

Sonus faber, an Italian company that crafts handmade products, is set to expand its line of Lumina speakers by adding the Lumina II ($1,200) and Lumina V ($2,800). The two new speakers complement the existing offerings with more size options, retain the same finish choices, and will be available in June.

The new Lumina II, like the Lumina I, is a two-way bookshelf speaker, but features a larger 150mm mid-woofer. Its compact design makes the speaker ideal for a bookcase setup, but also might serve as a home theater's rear channel. Slightly larger and more expensive than the Lumina I ($899), it will likely pack a bit more punch.

The series' new flagship model, the Lumina V, is a three-way floor-standing speaker that sports Sonus faber's lute shape mid-hi internal chamber, a signature of the company since its inception during the 1990s that aims at optimizing performance. The Lumina V also boasts Hybrid IFF Crossover - Paracross Topology that minimizes sensitivity to radio frequencies for pristine sound.

The line originally debuted in Fall 2020 and included two other models, as well as a center speaker option. Each is offered in three finishes: matte wood walnut and wenge with maple inlays, and piano black — all wrapped in black leather. The minimalist design belies a powerful sound, expressly designed to fill large rooms.
