Revolutionary debut of a whole generation of Sonus faber loudspeakers, Guarneri Homage is the first loudspeaker produced by drawing inspiration from the shape of the lute. Defined as “a musical instrument” by the press and expert critics, considered by its lovers “a cult object”, it is considered one of the few projects that influenced the history of high fidelity, so much so that Salvatore Accardo and Uto Ughi are mentioned among its enthusiasts, both of them owning one Guarneri Homage.
We would like to introduce you to a very interesting article written by Wojciech Pacuła and published at High Fidelity about the Sonus faber GUARNERI EVOLUTION (vs Sonus faber GUARNERI HOMAGE).
The discussion is based on this statement:
“However standmount speakers are a kind of an aberration. One can go even further and say that they are a denial of the very idea of a speaker – speakers of that type are just asking for such a comment.”
“… Although the Guarneri Homage are truly iconic speakers, the Evolution shows that they have become more an icon than speakers. It is the latter that show how two-way stand-mounted speakers, the real monitors, should sound.”
