This place is absolutely amazing! Ryan who works there is really knowledgeable on recievers and went out of his way to help me solve some problems with my older denon that I couldn't get to connect to my new TV. Ryan took the time to explain the process of what was needed to be done and even checked on me when I got home to see if I was able to get it working. Really kind person and you don't get that often nowadays. Their speaker selection is top of the line and out of this world. Highly recommended!!! 🥰

It's the best audio store in the country. I have bought a few amplifier from Eddie when I was in Houston. Nicest guy. It's always there when I have questions.

Awesome team here, super knowledgeable! Provided a superb price on a projector that no big box store could come close to. The shop itself is super cool too. Jeff’s got a ton of awesome movie and music memorabilia.

Had the luxury to visit the store this weekend, we were welcomed by Jeff. Really nice and knowledgeable person in the field of Audio. The amazing setup with high end Mcintosh Amps, Preamp and their speakers changed our perspective on sound even though I am use to Parasound, Marantz, Emotiva, Klipsch & Martin logan products.Now time to start finalizing and narrow down my wish list to build a nice System for myself.Will definitely give them the business for all my future purchases.It’s a blessing to have a store like this in your local community - Treat yourself, go and check them out even if you’re not an audiophile - cos I can guarantee you will get into this hobby for sure.

Loved this place! Jeff spent so much time with me helping me pick the right speakers for my setup. He was very patient with all my questions and he was extremely knowledgeable in all the equipment. While this is an appointment only high end audio store, they didn't act elitist when it came to my setup, and they were very down to earth. This is my new go to place for high end audio.

Hand down the best HiFi audio shop in the entire state! These guys have really spent the time and energy to do it right. If you are in the market for a high end system, or just want to listen to some of the best equipment the industry has to offer, then do yourself a favor and make an appointment.

Houston Audio is wife approved. 😄 The speakers are everything your man has been begging you for, yet they are so sleek and aesthetically pleasing, you will barely see them (but definitely hear them!) The speakers can enhance any room in your house. After spending time around the speakers I have grown to an understanding of how the speakers work and how they can truly change the way your favorite song or movie sounds-in the best way. Jeff & Eddie have staged beautiful demo rooms at H.A. that provide a unique experience in each room. It truly adds to the entire listening experience! I definitely recommend stopping by and listening in each room.

Description

Sonus Faber Sonetto VIII

The flagship of the Sonetto Collection, the biggest speaker that evolves the line.

 

ITALIAN TRADITIONAL CULTURE

Sonus faber always found its inspiration in the highest Italian culture. This time we entrusted the history of our Literature for representing the new Sonetto Collection.
The Sonetto (Sonnet) is the most ancient Italian Poetic structure. Originally it meant “Sound, Melody“and was traditionally used to accompany music performances. The first step in the Sonus faber world brings the name of the foundations of Literature history in Italy and in the rest of the world.

DESIGN

Sonetto VIII is the most powerful 3-way speaker of the Sonetto collection with three 180mm woofers for the best reproduction of lower frequencies and high-end standards. We have designed a speaker that completely represents our roots. The entire collection is a true Sonus faber that features all the iconic elements of the brand: natural sound, natural materials, the Lute shape, the excellent finishes typical of Italian craftsmanship, and manufacturing done completely in our factory in Vicenza.

FEATURES

The “Made in Italy“ tag: a matter of pride and a guarantee for an unmistakable Italian style.
