  • Sonus Faber Olympica speakers
<< Back to Robb Report, December 2013

Compared to the company’s roughly 5.5-foot-tall, 250-pound flagship Aida speaker, the new Sonus Faber Olympica speakers (www.sonusfaber.com) are a better fit for most homes. Though they are smaller than the Aida, the Olympica speakers feature much of the same technology and produce similarly pristine audio. They also display many of the same design elements as the Aida, including a lyre-shaped cabinet with a walnut or graphite finish. The line includes two floor-standing models, the bookshelf-sized Olympica I, and a center-channel model for home theaters. Prices range from $6,500 to $13,500.
