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.
Market leader in High-Fidelity, Focal’s wolrdwide reputation is well known: our brand is recognised everywhere for its sound quality and its numerous technological innovations.
