Focal Naim America will be at T.H.E. Show 2023 in Costa Mesa this weekend. Audition the new Classic 200 series, Utopia III Evo and Vestia loudspeakers.









At the Florida Audio Expo earlier this year (February 2023), Focal/Naim brought out the heat with an impressive array of high-end speakers and audio products.

For the 2023 T.H.E. Show being held at the Hilton Orange County from June 9-11, Focal/Naim in partnership with the AV Luxury Group, will be demonstrating a wide range of its latest products including the new Classic 200 series.

Tip: Focal Naim America and AV Luxury Group will be exhibiting at T.H.E. Show in Rooms 243/245.

Here is an overview of what will be on display this weekend.

The Focal Utopia III Evo Scala V2 is designed to bring listeners closer to music with enhanced emotion and listening pleasure.

Building on the foundation of Focal's Utopia III, the Scala reduces harmonic distortion in the mid-range, which is crucial for revealing the artist's emotions. The Scala is equipped with Focal's NIC (Neutral Inductance Circuit) and the TMD suspension (Tuned Mass Damping).

The Focal Utopia III Evo Scala is priced at $26,499 (each)

Although Focal isn't bringing its entire Vestia Series speaker line, the Vestia Nº2, a three-way bass-reflex floorstanding speaker will be shown.

Just like the other speakers in the Vestia line, the No2 incorporates a visually pleasing design that blends in with any decor.

The Vestia Nº2 is priced at $1,399.00 (each)

The Focal Vestia Nº2 is being paired with the Naim Uniti Star all-in-one digital music player that incorporates an integrated amplifier, CD/SACD player, DAC, and wireless music streaming capability.

In addition to the Focal Scala and Vestia, Focal is also bringing their Theva line loudspeakers to T.H.E. Show 2023. However, it will only be a static display.

In addition to the loudspeakers listed above, Focal is also bringing its Littora OD Stone 8 outdoor speaker to the show.

The OD Stone 8 incorporated an Aluminum "M"-shaped coaxial tweeter for clear and defined treble reproduction in large spaces.
