A TRUELY “Grande” LOUDSPEAKER
The Focal Utopia loudspeaker range has greatly impacted a generation of music lovers. And the Grande Utopia EM represents the most accomplished concept of “The Spirit of Sound”, the ultimate reference. After the “W” cones and
the pure Beryllium tweeter of the previous models that had marked a technological advance, the Grande Utopia EM adopts an Electro-Magnet woofer (EM) with a force that cannot be compared to classical technologies.
Superlative performance, unique style: the Grande Utopia EM is not only a technological monument, it’s above all an acoustic sculpture.
ADUSTABLE FOCUS TIME…
The very structured shape of the Grande Utopia EM immediately evokes a kind of spine.
Stylistic effect? No, because the design axis chosen for Utopia III brushes aside anything superfluous. Function justifies shape and if the Grande Utopia EM evokes a spine, it’s because it’s articulated.
True Utopia DNA since the beginning, the Focus Time consists in placing the drivers in an arc shape to orientate them towards the listening point. The Grande Utopia EM offers a mechanical adjustment to optimize the “Sweet Spot” (the perfect listening point) according to the distance.
Articulating a 573lb (260kg) loudspeaker could have been considered as an unacceptable argument at least and without doubt as inconceivable. But too irresistible not to be tried!
Thanks to a mechanical system operated by a handle (covered by seamless Chapal leather, the best in Made in France luxury) placed in the back body of the tweeter compartment, the four upper enclosures of the Grande Utopia EM can spread out. In the end, the use is simple, the handling is soft and here comes the indefinable satisfaction of having tried
and achieved the impossible. A little craziness makes the Utopias move forward!
