  • With over 9 years of experience in journalism, Nemanja Grbic is a reputable news press release writer and journalist in the home theater industry. His sharp journalistic acumen delivers accurate and engaging news, featured in prominent AV publications.

Two industry giants, Sonus faber and IsoAcoustics, have joined forces to introduce the pinnacle of audio innovation - the Suprema sound system. Retailing at an astounding $750,000, this collaboration promises an unparalleled auditory experience, setting new benchmarks in high-end audio technology.

The Suprema system, initially revealed at CES 2024, comprises two main speaker columns, two subwoofers, and an active crossover, the system boasts a total of ten drivers per main column, supplemented by powerful low-frequency drivers in the subwoofers. The result is a full-range sound reproduction spanning from 16 Hz to 40 kHz, ensuring every nuance of the audio is faithfully rendered.

One of the key innovations driving the Suprema's exceptional performance is the integration of IsoAcoustics' cutting-edge technology. Known for their expertise in acoustic isolation, Sonus faber and IsoAcoustics collaborated to develop a revolutionary decoupling system.

Unlike traditional methods, which often rely on exposed springs or elastomers, the Suprema features an integrated suspension system between the cabinet and baseplate in both the tower speakers and subwoofers.

This innovative approach effectively mitigates vibrations, preventing them from reaching the supporting structure and minimizing resonance within the room. IsoAcoustics' patented GAIA-Capsule isolators play a pivotal role in this endeavor, ensuring that pure sonic vibrations remain untainted by external interference. Livio Cucuzza, Chief Design Officer at IsoAcoustics, emphasizes the importance of Sonus faber and IsoAcoustics collaboration, stating: 

“We used to have a decoupling system outside of the main body, but that solution with exposed springs or elastomers was always a compromise for us,” Cucuzza explains. “With Suprema we wanted to keep the design cleaner and more integrated. We had the opportunity to develop a system with IsoAcoustics that is part of the main structure.”

The benefits of IsoAcoustics technology extend beyond mere isolation.

By decoupling devices from their supporting structures, the Suprema system achieves greater transparency and detail in sound reproduction. Livio elaborates on the transformative impact of IsoAcoustics, highlighting its precision and refinement in the mid-high frequencies, resulting in a clearer, more localized soundstage.

“IsoAcoustics achieve this great performance in the mid-high frequencies where everything becomes clearer without losing dynamics on bass,” Livio explains. “IsoAcoustics is more precise, more refined, and everything in the soundstage is more clearly localized. We are really happy with the results.”

The release of the Suprema system coincides with Sonus faber's 40th anniversary, marking a significant milestone for the renowned manufacturer. In addition to its unparalleled performance, the Suprema offers customization options, with a range of wood and leather finishes available to suit individual preferences.
