New Media Catalogue Between acoustic excellence and new trends… With 35 years of experience in the design and manufacture of speaker drivers and hi-fi loudspeakers, Focal has also been displaying its expertise in new ways to listen to music in recent years. This is the DNA of the New Media Collection: while its design and miniaturization are different from the usual form of our traditional loudspeakers, the heart of the product, the authenticity of the sound, the quest for excellence, are exactly the same... Focal has always focused all its attention on the reproduction of a textured and rich sound. Our unique know-how, our many patented technological innovations, the use of specific materials: all of these components are symbols of the attention we pay down to the smallest details. Details that enable us to better manage all of the factors that influence sound quality. Controlling the mass, rigidity and damping provides our cones with strong acceleration and low distortion. The result is dynamic real and natural sound that is unique to Focal, and a major asset in terms of responding to the demands of audiophiles and other music lovers. At the same time, the music world has undergone many changes in recent years. Access to music is easier than ever with files going digital. The trend towards miniaturization has opened the door to new players, the "plug & play" solutions are buzzing all around, sources are many and wireless, and TVs are becoming sources in their own right. In short, uses evolve and music is everywhere, at the flick of a switch. In this context, Focal decided to integrate these new ways of listening into its range, including miniaturization of speakers, but without compromising the quality of the music, which forms a core part of our values. This challenge required the expertise of our enthusiastic engineers and gave rise to the New Digital Collection: multimedia wireless speakers, mini Home Cinema systems and satellites, subwoofers or even headphones all have the characteristic of a tailor-made design and with great ease of use and integration. The New Media Focal are products adapted to new uses, to which we applied the formulas that have made our classic ranges a success to bring out real hi-fi products and to remain true to our values while satisfying our customers of today and tomorrow. > F or over 35 years Focal has been developing and manufacturing loudspeakers for the home, speaker drivers for the car, monitor speakers for recording studios and more recently headphones.
