Sonus faber, founded in Vicenza in 1983 is an Italian manufacturer of luxury handcrafted speakers and a division of U.S. audio manufacturer McIntosh Labs. Sonus faber yesterday announced a collaboration with Maserati on the MC20 supercar, making this the only model in the world currently in production with a Sonus faber sound system.
