CES, Las Vegas – January 5, 2023 – The French brand Focal expands its collection of home loudspeakers with Vestia. This new line comprises five models and has been designed to provide 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
Vestia delivers the purity of Focal sound, made even finer thanks to a host of features including a significantly improved treble reproduction. Developed and made in France in Focal’s workshops, the 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 performance, 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 a more immersive listening experience.
DESIGN AND FINISH
Focal offers the best acoustic loudspeakers in terms of sound, but also design. The 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, 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 Vestia. Released with the Chora model in 2019, this cone, made of recycled carbon fibers, was a huge hit from the moment it appeared. The engineers continued its development to improve its performance 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 to deliver encompassing bass and a deeper soundstage.
