Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement of Naim Audio’s Naim New Classic line, stable-mate Focal has a new line of its own…the new Focal Vestia. Here’s the news release:
CES, Las Vegas – January 5, 2023 – The French brand Focal expands its collection of loudspeakers for Home with Focal Vestia. This line comprises five models and has been designed for high-quality music enjoyment and Home Cinema experiences delivered by Focal’s renowned savoir-faire in acoustic. The brand which is recognized by the French government as a French “Living Heritage Company” chose its exclusive Slatefiber cone for Vestia range.
THE EMOTION OF HI-FI AND HOME CINEMA LISTENING EXPERIENCES
Focal Vestia delivers the purity of Focal sound, made even finer thanks to a host of sound details and a significantly improved treble reproduction. Developed and made in France in Focal’s workshops, the Focal Vestia line boasts five products: Vestia N°2, Vestia N°3 and Vestia N°4 are floorstanding models; Vestia N°1 is a bookshelf loudspeaker for small spaces; and Vestia Center is a center loudspeaker for a Home Cinema configuration.
For even higher performing, these products can be combined with the SUB 600P subwoofer for deep and encompassing bass. In addition, stands are tilted to provide an optimal and natural soundstage, more focused on the listener for an even more immersive listening experience.
DESIGN AND FINISH
Focal offers the best acoustic loudspeakers in terms of sound, but also design. Refined, the Focal Vestia models present a dynamic and sleek design that blends seamlessly into all styles of interior. For this line, inspired by Vesta and Hestia– goddesses of the hearth and the home – the French brand has chosen refined finishes: Black High Gloss, Dark Wood or Light Wood for the side panels, accompanied by a black or white leather effect for the front panels. Every detail counts, with metallic rings perfecting the aesthetic finish. For greater discretion, Focal Vestia loudspeaker owners can cover their models with the grille provided.
FOCAL TECHNOLOGIES AND SAVOIR-FAIRE
Focal is a specialist in speaker driver cones and has chosen its Slatefiber cone for Focal Vestia. Born with Chora in 2019, this cone made from recycled carbon fibers was a huge hit from the moment it appeared.
The engineers continued their development work to make it even higher performing and adapt it to studio monitors (Alpha Evo) and in-car kits (Slatefiber line). Focal has also chosen the innovative ‘M’-shaped dome TAM tweeter for the treble. Initially developed for the car collection, this exclusive tweeter has been
revamped to work with hi-fi loudspeakers, and now makes its first appearance in products for the home.
Lastly, the loudspeakers feature a port towards the front for more frontal impact, and a rear port for an encompassing bass – creating a bass – reflex profile that promotes a deeper soundstage.
