Sonus Faber launched a new version of its flagship speakers, the Sonus Faber Stradivari second generation, at the recent Munich High End show.
It is a 40th anniversary limited edition and only 120 pairs have been made.
According to Andy Tan of Perfect Hi-Fi, the Malaysian Sonus Faber distributor, all have been sold, but he managed to get hold of three pairs. They are not cheap — they are priced at US$50,000 a pair.
It is a redesign of the original Stradivari released about 20 years ago. The new design incorporates the ability to adjust the bass woofers’ output to suit your listening room’s acoustics.

3.5 way Midrange sealed box with Intono Woofers vented box “Stealth Ultraflex” system
