Vicenza, Italy, September 9th, 2021: Sonus faber is proud to announce its achievement of the 2021-2022 EISA award for the Best In-Car OEM Premium Audio System in the Maserati MC20 Super Sports car. One year after the vehicle’s reveal, the two luxury Italian heritage brands are thrilled to continue to celebrate their partnership in innovation and automotive audio technology.
The first Maserati model in production with the Sonus faber system, the MC20’s premium audio system leverages Sonus faber’s sound tuning expertise to create a 12-channel system amplified with 695 watts of power and 12 speakers with specific characteristics of the Sonus faber philosophy of creating a sound reproduction that implies the use of natural materials. The system is tailored specifically to the environment, the speakers working with custom EQ and real-time optimization of a 695 W-rated Class D amplifier, offering both stereo and surround options. The resulting sound beautifully captures the ‘Voice of Sonus faber’ and gives the listener the ability to distinguish the different instruments on a track, with the emotional experience mirroring a live performance.
“The Sonus faber team is honoured to receive this prestigious award, truly affirming that this five-year passion project resulted in a world-class automotive audio system,” said Sonus faber President and McIntosh Group Co-CEO Jeff Poggi. “We share this celebration with Maserati, our trusted partner, and look forward to bringing our natural sound to more luxury automotive consumers across the globe.”
