VANCOUVER, June 22, 2012 /CNW/ - The 'best speakers in the world', the Grande Utopia EM by Focal, will make their Vancouver debut at Commercial Electronics. Audiophiles must act fast; these world-class speakers, valued at $200,000CDN per pair, will only be at Commercial Electronics until July 28, 2012.
Bigger and better than ever.
The Grande Utopia EM is the result of the Focal's pursuit of audio perfection. At more than 2 meters tall and weighing in at an impressive 260kg (573.2lbs) this speaker is the world-leader in high-fidelity sound. Listening to your favorite track on a pair of these unique speakers is a once-in-a-lifetime treat.
Philip Meyburg, manager at Commercial Electronics exclaims:
"Orchestras were laid out in front of me as if I were on the podium. Picking out an instrumentalist's placement was a breeze, the imaging was so specific."
With open, clear sound, incredibly precise imaging and a huge soundstage, these speakers soar above the competition. While other high-end speakers imitate live events, the Grande EM will get you as 'close' as present technology allows. You will feel like you're in the audience and even on stage.
Christina Adam, owner and vice-president states:
"These speakers are the best I have ever heard. Effortless, real and visceral are the only words that come to mind when describing the sound. You could even argue that it was better than the real thing."
To achieve this world-class sound Focal utilized the company's new 16-inch Electromagnetic woofer design, along with an 11-inch mid-bass woofer, two 6 ½-inch woofers and the company's top-of-the-line IAL2 pure Beryllium 1-inch inverted dome tweeter. Focal pioneered the use of Beryllium a special, and expensive, material in its tweeters. While being exceptionally strong, and therefore able to maintain rigidity, Beryllium is one of the lightest known elements. The lighter the tweeter, the more detailed the sound. One of the many reasons the Utopia Grande EM is such an exceptional speaker.
Focal's Grande Utopia EM is highlighted by its driver alignment system, which provides professional installers and enthusiasts the ability to manually align the upper driver array to ensure a wider and more focused sweet spot; the perfect listening point.
