Sonus faber is proud to announce Aster, its first outdoor speaker

Barcelona, Spain (January 31st, 2023) Sonus faber is proud and excited to announce the launch of a their first outdoor loudspeaker, Aster.

Aster brings Sonus faber’s Natural Sound to the outdoors. Pairing elegant design with simple set-up, Aster elevates sound quality and ambience on terraces, patios, gardens and more. Aster can even be used indoors.


Aster pairs Sonus faber’s signature natural sound with a straightforward set-up. The mounting aluminium bracket system is both intuitive and functional. A simple installation screw attaches Aster to the wall, and the bayonet system secures the cabinet with a simple turn.


Aster’s slim and organic shape helps reproduce immaculate sound while channelling the modern design language of Sonus faber.

The two passive radiators on the sides of Aster increase efficiency and eliminate distortion.

Available in black or white finish, Aster blends seamlessly into a diverse array of design aesthetics.

“Sonus faber has always represented more than just a product for me” says Livio Cucuzza, McIntosh Group Chief Design Officer “It is a way of seeing things, but above all an acoustic and aesthetic philosophy in which to identify. So why limit yourself to the home environment? Aster interprets the desire to expand the horizons of Sonus faber and offer moments of pure sound enjoyment outdoors and in public spaces.


Aster derives its name from the Latin word for “star”. “Per aspera ad astra”, the famous Latin maxim stands for “through hardships to the stars.”

Fittingly, Aster’s crystal sound will lift spirits into the sounds of the open air.


With IP65 certification, the speakers can withstand the elements - from rain to dust.


Adjusting sound travel is as simple as a tilt. The spring mechanism inside Aster makes it easy to tilt the loudspeaker by 15 degrees at a time without adjusting any screws.
