The development process began by gathering the best of Amati Homage and Amati Anniversario: an aptitude reflected in the particular attention given to the choice of drivers and the following optimisation of their membrane composition. The next step was to take advantage of the most recent Sonus faber technology, both in terms of innovative loading systems and in terms of the newest filtering systems, arriving at the implementation of a differential distribution of the low frequencies. The new and original nature of the design architecture forced us to carry out a radical redesigning of the acoustic case that, while it defines itself in its structure and the distribution of volume, it takes advantage of innovative solutions linked to the combination of different materials, thus exalting the proverbial virtue of the violin shape.
The new project confirms and modernises another strong foundation of Sonus faber: a musical instrument lives within an environment and becomes part of it, carrying out the functions of both musical source and furnishing. The design choices, the finishes of the new materials, the enhanced quality of manufacture and the extreme attention to every little detail are equal to the sound output, the exalting of this concept and the testimony of our perennial values are not only firmly rooted in the present but they look towards the future. Amati futura aspires to be an expression of tomorrow. A new standard made possible through the patented technical solutions gathered through the years that have brought us to the creation of our flagship (â€śthe Sonus faberâ€ť).
