High Fidelity and High Style
Focal Audio Offers Stylish High-Performance Sound
If we asked you to name some of the top high-performance speaker brands, the name Focal might not be one of the first ones that come to mind. Yet this French company has been making speakers and speaker components since 1979, and today makes a broad range of transducers from headphones to the ultra-high-end Utopia speaker line. The company is proud of its French heritage. In an era where many audio vendors manufacture their products in Asia, Focal continues to produce the majority of their lines in France.
What’s different about Focal speakers? Let’s explore more about their high-fidelity speakers to find out if they’re the right fit for your Southlake home.
The Ultimate Speaker – Grande Utopia EM Evo
The Grande Utopia is every bit as grand as its name. It incorporates the best of Focal’s speaker technologies. These technologies include NIC (Neutral Induction Circuit) and TMD suspension. Without going into the weeds on speaker design, the goal of these Focal innovations is to make a neutral sounding speaker that delivers exactly what the artists and audio engineers intended on a recording. The Evo cabinet features the trademark Focal design that appears to bend the upper part housing the midrange and tweeter drivers forward.
The Grande Utopia EM Evo is a 4-way speaker that weighs 573 pounds! Suffice it to say that it is packed with the highest quality drivers, including a 16-inch electromagnet bass driver and pure Beryllium dome tweeter. The company says that there are 1458 possible adjustments to personalize the sound of this speaker. The Grande Utopia is like a work of art – Focal calls it “acoustic sculpture” - and is available in a variety of finishes that befit its style, performance, and presence. It is for the audiophile who desires the very best in audio – and this speaker makes that statement. The Utopia line also includes other tower and stand mount speakers with similar technologies that are not quite as large or heavy but provide superb audio performance for (relatively) smaller spaces.
Other High-Performance Lines
If you’re not in the market for something as high-end as the Grande Utopia line, fortunately, Focal makes several different lines of high-fidelity speakers, equally adept for critical listening systems as well as high end home theater. Keeping with Focal’s emphasis on performance and style, all of these lines are among the most elegant and stylish speakers you can buy. With Focal speakers, the variety of metallic, gloss, and beautiful wood finishes will entice you to prominently display your speakers in a room rather than try to minimize them. Starting with the Chorus, and moving up through the Aria, Kanta, Electra, and Sopra lines, Focal speakers are an investment in audio that will pay aural and aesthetic dividends in your listening rooms and theaters for many years.
