Italian high-end legend Sonus faber has launched the next-generation wireless home audio system, Omnia, available for $1,999. With seven speakers onboard, the 490-watt, DSP-optimized player capitalizes on a number of new features including wireless connectivity with access to Apple AirPlay 2, Chromecast Built-in, Spotify Connect, TIDAL connect and Bluetooth AptX HD. The unit is also Roon Ready and can be used as a soundbar for TV audio.

Omnia benefits from “elevated-quality” Italian design and an authentic wood surface (available in walnut and graphite finishes) to complement home décor choices. There are two onboard trademarked technologies, SENSO and CRESCENDO. The former is a touch-sensitive interface for direct control of wireless connection to digital sources. Illuminated lines on the top panel indicate the speakers’ mode, input and volume. CRESCENDO is a signal processor (DSP) that promises to add a sense of dimensionality and immersivity by using two full-range side speakers.

Omnia’s connectivity includes a wired ethernet connection, HDMI ARC, a switchable RCA input, and (MM) phono stage for vinyl enthusiasts. Offering up “three-dimensional sound” producing a “natural acoustic experience”, the wireless player follows in the tradition of Sonus faber’s loudspeaker portfolio.

Sonus faber’s Chief Design Officer, Livio Cucuzza, said: “For me, Omnia was a complete journey exploring Sonus faber’s vast history, but made at two-times the speed. With every project, my job is to tell the brand’s story and with Omnia, the mission was the same, the process was just faster and went more in depth. In its new, more accessible category, Omnia will offer a taste of Sonus faber’s 40-year history to thousands of new customers, ambitious of course, but also gratifying.”
