Sonus Faber Lumina III Overview
The Lumina III is a compact and elegant tower, the perfect choice for any mid-sized room, and able to provide broad frequency response, a gorgeous dynamic impact, and a beautiful midrange presentation.
THE MULTILAYER WOOD FRONT BAFFLE
Among the materials selected for this line that stands out is Lumina’s multilayer wood of the front baffle and the real wood veneer, available in iconic premium finishes including Walnut and Wengè, both in a matte finish with maple inlays. A third option is available in Piano Black. All other surfaces of the cabinet are hand-covered in the Sonus Faber iconic black leather.
The iconic D.A.D (Damped Apex Dome) tweeter, similar to the Sonetto series, features a Kurtmueller hand-coated soft silk diaphragm of 29mm. The chrome rings around the drivers highlight shapes and proportions and give brightness to the front baffle while outlining the Voice of Sonus Faber.
The 5″ midrange is coming from the bigger sisters Sonetto and it features Sonus Faber’s proprietary natural fiber and paper blend air-dried diaphragm.
The 5″ woofers were designed from scratch for this line and feature paper pulp cones, for a perfect sonic coherence with the rest of the drivers.
The reflex port gives additional versatility for the models’ range: on the floor stander, it’s placed on the base, down-firing. Thanks to this solution, the Lumina III speaker is significantly less sensitive to its placement, allowing sound excellence even when placed close to a back wall. Place it where you want and you will experience great performance each time.
Lumina III’s crossovers feature specially designed Sonus Faber high-end capacitors.
Lumina III’s are provided with two pairs of nickel-plated terminals, allowing for an upgrade experience provided by bi-wiring and bi-amping.
LESS IS MORE
Sonus Faber executed this minimalistic and perfectly squared design in order to emphasize the quality of materials used. This principle of minimalism directly captures the essence of the product, which was thoughtfully designed in conjunction with the theory “less is more”.
The Lumina collection comprises the core values of Sonus Faber and its iconic materials, such as real multilayer wood, leather, and the natural composition of drivers.
Simplicity remains central to the collection’s identity with its easy set-up, accessible price point, and excellent sound performance, empowering everyone to enjoy a true Sonus Faber experience completely made in Italy.
