The writing was on the wall about this type of system when we toured the Focal Powered by Naim Houston store in 2021 and we know that is has paid enormous dividends for both companies.
Naim and Focal continue to introduce state-of-the-art equipment and their selection of network streamers, loudspeakers, headphones, and now turntables is second to none.
When you build products that designed to work with each other — there is synergy and it makes it much easier for dealers and customers to wrap their collective heads around the concept being offered.
Focal and Naim have announced this morning at High-End Munich 2022, a hi-fi system with exceptional performance and new finishes; the new Focal Aria K2 926 loudspeaker and the Uniti Star all-in-one digital music player, Ash Grey finish. United under the VerVent Audio Group for 10 years now, the two brands embody the very best of French audio and English electronics. Thanks to their unique expertise, they create outstanding, all-round systems for home listening.
Aria K2 926 & Uniti Star
Made in France, the new Aria K2 926 loudspeaker is equipped with Focal’s iconic K2 Power cone. This aramid fiber cone provides dynamic sound and high-power handling, as well as giving the loudspeaker lots of character. Whatever genre of music you like to play, the listening experience speaks for itself.
Made in England, the Uniti Star all-in-one player truly makes the most of the loudspeakers’ performance qualities and lets you manage your music simply and smartly across its multiple sources – streaming platforms, CD player, TV, turntable, etc. Stream your music in high-resolution, listen to your CDs and favorite radio stations, access numerous streaming services, improve the sound quality of your television, and all with deep, immersive sound.
Ash Grey Finish
This system is available in an Ash Grey finish, a finish taken from the Utopia line, the jewel in Focal’s crown. This is the first time that Aria K2 926 is presented, and with a harmonious Naim all-in-one player making this offer unique and exclusive. Focal and Naim combine their expertise to design all-round, harmonious systems –performance and aesthetics– to enhance the listening experience and create solutions that are unique to the market.
