Sonus Faber Homage Tradition speaker UK launch

sonus faber homage tradition Serafino kj west oneLast week the brand new Homage Tradition speaker range from Sonus Faber were showcased at their UK launch held at Marylebone’s high-end Hi-Fi store, KJ West One in collaboration with specialist distributer Absolute Sounds.

The new Tradition range features two of the Italian company’s celebrated Homage speakers – the Amati floorstander and the Guarneri standmounts.

These have enjoyed a number of refreshes since the 90s but not for seven years now. Joining them is a brand-new 3.5 way floorstander, the Serafino.

I also managed to grab some time with the company’s all-in-one digital player, the SF16.
