Sonetto VIII Overview

Italian Traditional Culture
Sonus Faber always found its inspiration in the highest Italian culture. This time we entrusted the history of our Literature for representing the new Sonetto Collection.

The Sonetto (Sonnet) is the most ancient Italian Poetic structure. Originally it meant “Sound, Melody“and was traditionally used to accompany music performances. The first step in the Sonus faber world brings the name of the foundations of Literature history in Italy and in the rest of the world.

Elegant And Discreet
All the speakers in the Sonus faber Sonetto Collection are identified by their easy use and for their ability to be a versatile solution for any kind of environment. Our goal is to make the Music the real protagonist.

At first glance, the McIntosh MTI100 Integrated Turntable may look like it’s just a turntable, but a closer look will reveal that it is in fact so much more. Truly a one-of-a-kind product, it is designed for those who want maximum flexibility in their home audio system but don’t want – or don’t have space for – a large audio system in their home. With all the built-in connectivity the MTI100 offers, it can become the centerpiece of a modern home audio system for modern lifestyles. Simply add your favorite speakers of choice (such as our XR50 bookshelf or XR100 floor standing speakers and you’ll have a complete and comprehensive audio system.

The MTI100 “manages to deliver on almost everything vinyl enthusiasts prize about the format.” The amount of detail it delivers “without sounding in any way prissy or analytical is no easy task,” and the “mastery of low-level harmonic dynamics on display here is considerable.” Winner of a HiFi+ Editor’s Choice 2020 Award. – HiFi+

Besides the turntable that plays both 33-1/3 and 45 rpm vinyl records, the MTI100 also includes a power amplifier, a vacuum tube preamplifier section, a shielded phono preamplifier, an unbalanced auxiliary input, digital audio coaxial and optical inputs, a Bluetooth receiver, a subwoofer output, stereo speaker outputs for sharing your music with friends, and a headphone jack for personal listening.

“There is no audible noise in any section of the MTI100. Phono and digital sections are free of playback artifacts, even with highly sensitive speakers… a piece of sonic artistry, that provides high-end sound from all the sources you can imagine, and looks great doing it… The level of quality, functionality, and audio performance makes it the perfect purchase for anyone wanting a high quality, all-inclusive music system.” Named The Audiophile Apartment’s Product of the Year 2019. – The Audiophile Apartment

The 7 pounds (3.18 kg) machined aluminum platter resides on the top of the unit. This and the matching machined aluminum tonearm with anti-skate sit atop a 3/8” (9.5mm) thick piece of glass – the same glass found in the front panels of our larger amplifiers; this, in turn, sits atop a custom 1/4” (6.35mm) thick metal plate that adds stability. The combined heftiness of both the platter and metal plate helps resist and absorb noise that could be caused by external vibrations.

The MTI100 “oozes class and luxury…” no other product Brockhouse has reviewed “elicited more oohs and ahs than the MTI100…” its “big, spacious sound” made “listening to music an event.” – SoundStage

The belt drive platter with manual speed change is driven by an industrial-grade permanent magnet AC synchronous motor with a 2-speed pulley. With this motor, the platter speed is precisely synced to the AC power line’s frequency to deliver precise rotational speeds for playback accuracy. The MTI100 comes with a Sumiko Olympia Moving Magnet cartridge, whose upgraded stylus and cantilever assembly allow for more dynamic punch and improved frequency response.

“For an all-in-one device, the MTI100 rocks!” With all its connectivity options, “it can comfortably function as the heart of a more extensive system… sure to appeal to today’s millennials who have a vinyl collection and high expectations for sound quality, as well as to audiophiles who may be down/right-sizing or looking for a simple second system with minimal compromise.” – SoundStage Australia

A Class D amplifier that’s rated for 80 Watts per channel into 4 Ohms or 50 Watts per channel into 8 Ohms is used to drive a pair of speakers (sold separately) that are connected via the back panel speaker binding posts. Two 12AX7 vacuum tubes power the main preamplifier section, while a separate dedicated phono preamplifier is housed in a custom shielding box that prevents interference or noise from seeping into the vinyl signal. Together, the vacuum tube preamplifier and shielded phono preamplifier are a perfect choice to help make your vinyl albums sound their best.

To combine playing vintage vinyl records with modern playback methods, you can also stream music to the MTI100 via its High Definition Bluetooth 4.2 input that ensures you receive the best sound quality possible from your Bluetooth device. An external Bluetooth antenna helps achieve optimal reception and signal quality. The analog and digital audio inputs allow external sources, such as a TV, tuner, or CD Player, to be connected. Not to overlook the impact that low sound frequencies can add, a subwoofer output is also included. Finally, for personal listening, the front panel includes a headphone jack that is powered by our High Drive headphone amplifier, which features increased gain and output power and is optimized for virtually all headphone types.

Power, volume, and input selection can be controlled by either the included remote or via two knobs on the unit. An illuminated McIntosh logo is located in the top glass panel, while a classic McIntosh-styled die-cast aluminum name badge adorns the front of the chassis.

Sonetto VIII Features

The ``Made in Italy`` tag: a matter of pride and a guarantee for an unmistakable Italian style.

The Sonus Faber Sonetto collection's floorstanding and bookshelf models inherit from the Olympica line the leather top, hand sewn, soft to the touch and embellished by the hot branded Sonus Faber Logo.

The combination of a silk dome tweeter with the DAD (Damped Apex Dome) technology and a midrange with a special natural fibre and a paper blend air dried diaphragm, defines our iconic 'Voice Of Sonus Faber'. This configuration that characterised the entire Sonus Faber catalogue, from the Reference to the Olympica collection, is available for the first time in this price range. These speakers have been designed from scratch specifically for this collection and the feature the die cast basket, done completely in Sonus Faber laboratories. For an optimal lowest frequencies reproduction, a special aluminium alloy diaphragm has been designed. It allows an ultra-fast, tight and yet deep bass performance.

The lute shape that characterises most of the Sonus Faber models, offers a solution that ensures no internal parallel surfaces and a perfect control over internal resonances.

The Senetto collection's reflex ports are all sited on the base of the speakers, except for the centre channels, to keep the design as clean as possible and at the same time make in-room placement very forgiving.

Consistent with the most prestigious Sonus Faber models, aluminium has been chosen for the column feet, extruded or milled from solid billets, to provide an extreme rigidity.
