Sonus faber Maxima Amator Loudspeaker The Lockdown Project

The Lockdown Project

'Maxima wasn't on our 2020 product plan – it started as a challenge to work on something that reflects our personal wishes without any deadline or business plan', recalled Sonus faber's Livio Cucuzza. 'With production empty and the office silent, due to the Covid situation, we had more time to sit and listen, as a way to escape all the terrible news.


'The idea was to follow the tradition of early two-way Sonus faber models: I've always been a fan of pure two-ways, finding them more intimate and magical with some musical programmes, of course accepting the limits they have.

'We tried several crossover designs, and – with no restrictions on budget or timing – we arrived at a new kind of third-order filter, via simulation software, a lot of listening and some good wine! This new crossover really is the heart of the new Maxima Amator and we're so proud of it we decided to show it off on the back of the speaker.'
