Solo 6 BE 40th studio monitor Solo6 Be is a 2-way monitor which, from the moment it was launched, surprised users with its size/extended frequency response in the bass ratio, the woofer’s accumulation of neutrality in the mid-range, the fullness of the mid-bass and its bass control. It provides transparency and an unmatched degree of definition and precision of the stereo image for this price category: that is why Focal chose to showcase this model to celebrate their anniversary. How? By dressing it in a black leather-effect coating to give it a discreet, distinguished and timeless look. Stamped as a ‘40 year’ special edition, this monitor, made in the brands workshops in France, embodies the passion they share with music creators. Scala 40th Hi-Fi speaker Scala 40th is a 100% Made in France high-fidelity loudspeaker. Whilst the speaker drivers are handmade in Focal’s acoustics workshop in La Talaudière, near Saint-Étienne, the wooden cabinet and its Black Silver finish are entrusted to the cabinet-makers in the FEB (Focal Ébénisterie Bourgogne) workshop. The mirror-effect is achieved by hand spraying silver nitrate, thanks to spraying machines : all of these elements are true markers of the super high quality and absolute authenticity of every piece.
