Sonus Faber started as a small, local, specialized manufacturer of loudspeakers. By now Sonus Faber is one of the leading Italian audio companies with worldwide recognition.
Designer Franco Serblin and managing director Césare Bevilacqua not only represent the top of their respective skills, they are also recognized as belonging to the nicest people of the audio community.
You can return this statement with the remarks that that can not be too difficult knowing what kind of persons you meet in this industry and that most foreigners already "melt" for the Italian waiter reading the menu in his native language, fact is that the designs and products of Sonus Faber are worldwide highly appreciated and wanted.
Almost all the time and almost everywhere in the world, consumers are facing waiting lists. Specially the Sonus Faber Guarneri loudspeaker is a product which can only be bought (and produced!) with a lot of patience. As a result of this high demand for and the limited supply of Sonus Faber loudspeakers, some other manufacturers also started to offer loudspeakers in "solid" wood. These look-a-like Sonus Fabers are absolutely less in sound quality and finishing and are becoming known as Clonus Faber.
