Sonus faber Moves Distribution to Fine Sounds UK

Absolute Sounds passes UK distribution of Sonus faber to Fine Sounds UK.

Absolute Sounds has handled Sonus faber’s UK distribution since 1986 and has today announced that, after 34 years, the McIntosh Group is taking the loudspeaker brand’s UK distribution in-house under Fine Sounds UK.

In the statement, it is recognised that when Absolute Sounds founder and chairman, Ricardo Franassovici, began working with Sonus faber, the company was in its infancy and has been instrumental in establishing Sonus faber’s Italian craftsmanship and sound quality in the UK. The loudspeakers at the time must have really made an impact amongst the sea of rectangular cabinets in the 80s.

Ricardo told StereoNET:

This is a natural parting of the ways. Whilst the direction of travel for Sonus faber and Absolute Sounds is no longer aligned, I have no doubt that the brand will continue to deliver a compelling combination of sound and style as the next chapter of its story is written.

Lionel Nunney, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for the McIntosh Group, added:

Ricardo and Absolute Sounds have greatly contributed to the story of Sonus faber, and we are grateful for his passion and dedication through the years. Our partnership and friendship will continue as Ricardo collaborates with us as a member of the Sonus faber Distributor Advisory Council. He also continues as our distributor in Portugal alongside his
business partners.
