From the manufacturer:
“Musica was created as an instrument for Sonus faber's own listening tests and used as a landmark reference point.
The Musica is a pure and precise amplifier, designed and manufactured with state of the art technology.
Musica is the perfect expression of Sonus faber philosophy, embodying simplicity while representing the quest for the finest sound reproduction possible, above and beyond that which fashion dictates.
Musica's pure and simple design contrasts with the sophisticated technical considerations applied in its conception and construction, the interior accommodates the ample power supply and ultra high-speed circuitry.
In creating this precision instrument, we did not regard absolute power as a design objective. Instead, we concentrated on musical quality, for the kind of reproduction which involves the listener's heart.
Musica has been designed not by just us, but for us. And for music lovers everywhere.”
One reviewer had this to say about the Musica:
“…Sonus faber spent a lot of time tuning Musica using some of Europe's most refined golden ears. As a result of this teamwork, Musica has been honed to display uncanny precision, especially in image positioning, retrieval of fine detail and transient attack. The mid-band is so exquisitely lifelike that vocals possess both the texture and the air which are required to make you think the singers are in the room. But it's the character of the treble which defines the Musica…
…Think bells or chimes, running water, anything which tinkles without clatter. Dig out a recording with loads of glossy, glassy upper-octave information. Xylophone, castrati, triangles, Guy Mitchell whistling - doesn't matter. Just play it and listen to the way the upper frequencies shimmer. It's spine-tingling…”
