Focal Launch Two New Headphones Products


Making its first UK appearance at the 2019 Bristol show, Stellia is a flagship closed-back headphone. Just like the Utopia headphone, they use a pure Beryllium dome diaphragm, offering the very best technology available from Focal.

Stellia is the quintessence of Focal expertise when it comes to technological innovation and uncompromising manufacturing. This new benchmark offers a level of performance that pushes the boundaries of acoustics within closed-back headphones.

Alongside Stellia arrives Arche, the first headphone electronics product from Focal, developed for them by the French manufacturer Micromega. Dedicated to headphones, Arche combines a digital-analogue converter as well as two pure class A amplification modes, voltage and hybrid. Arche also offers presets for every set of Focal headphones, to make sure you get the absolute best from this ultimate combination.

Arche’s dual mono, ultra-high performance audiophile design, makes it possible to separate management of the left and right channels, from the powering stage. Arche is compatible with formats ranging from PCM up to 384kHz and up to DSD 264. Finally, the symmetrical and asymmetrical outlets allow Arche to also be used as a DAC feeding an external amplifier.

UK prices TBC.
