Video Interview with Paolo Tezzon, Chief Designer of Acoustics for Sonus faber

Paolo Tezzon studied Work Psychology in University. His passion for music led him to become an audiophile as a teenager. Initially building his own speakers out of necessity, he bought a pair of Sonus faber Concertino and fell in love with the company. Paolo joined Sonus faber in 2004, apprenticing under the legendary founder and designer Franco Serblin. After Franco sold the company in 2006, Paolo took over the design responsibilities, and has been responsible for the company’s sonic attributes.

The full video is long, but well worth watching. We discuss his early challenges when he took over the acoustics division, the design process, why flat frequency response is not desirable, the various technologies he patented, why he thinks speakers should not be spiked and more. Click here to watch, and please share this video with fellow audiophiles. I think it’s really important that we learn from the actual designers instead of just reading marketing material.


Video Interview with Livio Cucuzza, Chief Industrial Designer for the McIntosh Group

Livio was hired in 2010 to head the Industrial Design team for the McIntosh Group, which owns McIntosh, Sonus faber, Audio Research, Wadia, Pryma and Sumiko. Livio and his team have been responsible for the aesthetics, which many feel to be the best in our industry. I visited the Sonus faber factory on Oct 23, and had the opportunity to interview Livio, Paolo Tezzon (Chief Designer of Acoustics for Sonus faber) and Marta Reane (Marketing Manager for Sonus faber). This is the interview I did with Livio. We talk about his educational background, his love for the industry as a kid because his father had a Hi Fi shop, and his process of design.
