To celebrate its 40th anniversary, Focal has released a limited and numbered edition Focal Symphonie 40th bundle to complement its range of hi-fi headphones. The Focal Symphonie 40th bundle includes the French manufacturer’s two best hi-fi headphones, the Focal Utopia and Focal Stellia headphones (Made in France), paired with the Focal Arche headphone amplifier and DAC and the Questyle QPM DAP.
Focal Symphonie 40th: freedom, musicality, high fidelity
The Focal Symphonie 40th bundle provides two exceptional listening experiences: with the Focal Utopia open-back headphones and the Focal Arche amplifier/DAC, home listening takes on a completely new dimension; with the Focal Stellia closed-back headphones and the high-definition Questyle QPM DAP, music can be experienced to the full when listening on-the-go.
These two flagship models, which are designed and produced in France inside Focal’s production workshops, combine multiple innovations and are true conveyors of musical emotion. The Focal Utopia are a reference for the French manufacturer, with the first wideband driver with an M-shaped dome in pure Beryllium that is entirely open at the rear. The sound achieved with this design rivals that of the best loudspeakers!
For the closed version, the Focal Stellia headphones incorporates state-of-the-art drivers that provide exceptional dynamics for closed-back headphones: even the tiniest details are reproduced and vocals are strikingly realistic!
Focal Symphonie 40th: an exhaustive audio bundle
For total ease of use as well as optimal performance, four cables dedicated to each listening set-up are included in the set:
- a balanced 4-pin XLR Litz wire cable to connect the Focal Utopia headphones to the Focal Arche amplifier (Ultima cable);
- a balanced 4.4mm jack cable to connect the Focal Stellia headphones to the Questyle QPM DAP;
- a 3.5mm mini-jack stereo cable to connect the Focal Utopia headphones to the Questyle QPM DAP;
- a balanced XLR cable to connect the Focal Stellia headphones to the Focal Arche headphone amp.
Consequently, it is possible to pair both headphones to each electronic device, notably to the Arche amplifier, which features a dual AK4490 digital/analog converter (one per channel) and provides two pure Class A amplification modes to ensure listening experiences rich in musical emotion.
