Focal Hi Fidelity Loudspeakers
Jmlab wasn’t going to just let British Arcam run amok in the audiophile world, unchallenged. Since the early 1980’s the battle has raged. Their Grande Utopia speakers are well known for a clash of Titans and taking on KEF in the high end speaker arena.
As early as 2001, Focal took on Kef with the Inverted Dome Tweeter. A mere 5 years later, seeing the departure of the paper cone from Kef, the firm released the << K2 >> cone. They continued improvements with the Polyglass cone only 2 years later.
Realizing a war is really defined as a series of battles, trading blows, the “W” sandwich cone was shot across the Channel and heard around the world with the first Beryllium Tweeter in 2002.
Two more volleys we’re launched. In 2007 an aluminum-magnesium was released and still used in some of the line up. Finally the Flax membrane cone was launched as ‘next gen’ W cone in 2013.
Today the firm has grown in manufacturing area and added divisions to it offerings constituting: The Home line, the Car line, The Pro line, the Headphone line and most recently Integration line (PA systems).
Certainly Focal has considered aesthetics beyond the sound of science as revealed with its Dome design. This is also seen in the 3 Birds: Little Bird, Bird and Super Bird satellite speakers which are stand or wall mounted.
Typically a surround sound system uses subwoofers. Here Focal offers both stand alone Active Bass Reflex, a beautiful CUB 3 and the SUB AIR. The latter employs wireless technology.
Certainly worth a quick mention is the fact they also offer the SPIRIT CLASSIC Hi-Fi headphones so you can enjoy the latest Explosion Man movie for private entertainment.
One of the latest from Focal is the Easya. It is a wireless system that “hears” all your playback devices (including your computers) with a variety of inputs and sends your input source to the speakers.
