Description

Since 1983, Sonus Faber has been known for crafting high-end, performance-driven speakers that have captivated numerous music enthusiasts and garnered significant attention in specialized press. The brand is renowned for its Homage, Olympica, and more recently, Sonetto series.

Today, the Italian brand introduces a new "democratic" range that meets the needs and expectations of budget-conscious audiophiles. The Lumina series currently comprises only four Hi-Fi products: two floor-standing speakers and two bookshelf speakers. The Lumina II stands as the mid-range model, embodying Sonus Faber's traditional approach to two-way speaker design.

SONUS FABER LUMINA II: CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN


Out of the box, these bookshelf speakers reveal craftsmanship with refined materials, embodying artisanal quality in the noblest sense. The design is intentionally minimalist, showcasing the high-quality materials used.

The front panel is crafted from multi-ply wood, available in three finishes: glossy black lacquer, wengé, or walnut. The speaker drivers can be concealed behind a rigid black jersey grille, secured with magnets.

These Sonus Faber Lumina II speakers are meticulously handcrafted at the Sonus Faber factory in Arcugnano, Italy.

SONUS FABER LUMINA II: SPEAKERS


For mid-range and bass frequencies, a 150mm cellulose fiber driver is selected, featuring a robust and powerful motor.

It is paired with an excellent 29 mm DAD™ dome tweeter for handling high frequencies. To minimize distortions and disturbances in the high frequencies, this tweeter is isolated from the speaker cabinet by a viscoelastic joint.

The Bass Reflex loading is front-firing via a laminar Reflex Port at the base of the Hi-Fi speaker. The crossover is tailored specifically for this speaker, with the crossover frequency optimized at 1800 Hz.

SONUS FABER LUMINA II: INSTALLATION


The Lumina II is a compact speaker that is extremely easy to place, making it an excellent choice for medium-sized or confined spaces.

Connection is facilitated through a high-quality dual binding post that accepts banana plugs, spade connectors, or bare wire.

SONUS FABER LUMINA II: TEST AND LISTENING EXPERIENCE


Despite its compact size, the Sonus Faber Lumina II speaker delivers a spacious and particularly balanced sound reproduction.

The Lumina II fills the listening room with even greater ease than its smaller siblings, the Lumina I bookshelf speakers. The 2 dB higher efficiency compared to the Lumina I and an additional 10 hours of bandwidth in the lower frequencies are immediately noticeable.

These Hi-Fi speakers from Sonus Faber exude enthusiasm and surprising musicality, accompanied by remarkable tonal quality. They enhance presence and substance without overemphasis.

The bass response is remarkable for a speaker of this size, displaying excellent balance with the midrange and treble frequencies.

When placed on sturdy stands between 60 and 90 cm tall, the Lumina II speakers create a remarkable three-dimensional soundstage. Hours of listening pass without feeling anything is missing or wanting.

Their exceptional balance, undeniable tonal quality, and versatility make the Sonus Faber Lumina II bookshelf speakers a resounding success, both aesthetically and musically.

Our heartfelt recommendation.

Un mot : PARFAIT

Pour faire mon choix, j'ai regardé la vidéo YouTube de présentation des petites soeurs les Lumina I et j'ai choisi en fonction de mon ampli REGA Brio R, puis tant qu'à casser ma tirelire, autant craquer pour les Lumina II. L'envoi a été assez rapide compte tenu du fait que j'ai commandé avant le weekend et que le colis est arrivé mardi. La mise en place a été très simple, j'ai opté pour un support rigide type étagère à 66cm du sol, ce qui de mon point d'écoute me permet d'aligner oreilles et tweeters sur un même plan horizontal. Le premier disque vinyle que j'ai posé sur ma X2 a été Patti Smith Radio Ethiopia, les voix semblaient très présentes et l'équilibre parfait. Je suis ensuite passé sur un registre Electro Hip Hop, un disque de Wax Tailor, le dernier Fishing For Accidents, le beat claquait bien et les graves étaient tendues. Troisième disque, les Daft Punk, la B.O Tron Legacy, c'est toujours un moment extra, qui peut donner beaucoup d'émotions, Lumina II m'a enchanté !! Ce dernier disque est passé sans que je fatigue et sans que je m'attende à mieux ou autre chose de leur part. Ces enceintes me conviennent parfaitement. Esthétiquement, elles sont très belles, je signale au passage que le cuir qui les recouvre fait du plus bel effet à l'ensemble. Dans ma pièce d'écoute qui est assez confinée, c'est le bon choix pour le prix qu'elles valent, rapport qualité/prix/plaisir validé !
