In 2011 Focal and Naim announced that they were to merge to create a new European leader in the audio sector. Three years later, in 2014, the brands cemented their union by joining the VerVent Audio Group, they would continue to evolve and respond to the challenges of a constantly changing market.
Today, an ever-expanding portfolio of products are available via 10,000 retailers worldwide, including the growing network of Focal Powered by Naim stores, driven by the brands’ ambitious global retail strategy. Their product collections extend to integrated solutions, headphones, in-car systems, recording studio monitors, and yachts.
To celebrate 10 years together, the two brands have developed a special edition system — a ready-to-play Focal Naim 10th Anniversary Edition of products with unique aesthetics. Featured in the set-up are the Sopra N°2 loudspeakers in a special finish: concrete side panels pair with “tin” front baffles.
An array of Naim Classic electronics powers the Focal loudspeakers: the cutting-edge NDX 2 music-streaming player pairs with the NAC 282/NAP 250 DR pre-power amplifiers, complete with matching NAPSC and HiCap DR power supplies. The system includes all the connections that would be needed, including a pair of Naim’s top-range Super Lumina speaker cables.
The Focal Naim 10th Anniversary Edition includes the Sopra N°2, NDX 2 – NAC 282 – HICAP DR and NAPSC – NAP 250 DR for $48,000 and is available May 2022.
