FOCAL Aria 936 Gloss Black
These 3 way loudspeakers are an elegant design in a small footprint. With three woofers these speakers provide remarkable results, they are naturally intended for listening in stereo. However they will guarantee you a truly outstanding 5.1 system when used with the CC 900 centre speaker and a pair of SR 900 rear speakers. Appropriate for rooms measuring from 270ft² (25m² ) and from a listening distance of 10-12ft (3m - 3.5m)
For the TNF tweeter, Focal have brought two major evolutions to their aluminium/magnesium tweeter. The suspension between the dome and its bracket uses Poron, a material with shape memory. The inverted dome's spatial characteristics and very low directivity already make it greatly superior. The frequency response has a variance of +/- 0.5 dB. This performance guarantees an incredibly stable sound stage which makes the listening position much less critical.
Focal cones are made of high-quality flax fibres core enclosed by two thin layers of glass fibre. They satisfy the key criteria of a high performance diaphragm high internal damping, high velocity of sound and high flexural rigidity. The cones are characterised by their natural sound, with low colouration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass.
Flax is twice as light as fibre glass, because the fibre is hollow. It is aesthetically beautiful and also has very low elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich structure. Moreover, it can be obtained in non-woven bundles of considerable diameter and it can therefore produce the thickness required for a sandwich.
Aria has been conceived as an elegant piece of home furnishing; simple, with great stature, quality materials and soft shapes which capture the light and resist the passage of time. The glass on its upper face for strength, the leather finish to its front face for its absorbent and acoustic diffraction qualities.
