French company Focal is presenting its expanded line of Vestia loudspeakers at CES 2023, with five new models designed for home cinema use.
Developed and made in France in Focal’s workshops, the Vestia line includes the Vestia N°2, Vestia N°3 and Vestia N°4 floorstanding models, Vestia N°1 bookshelf loudspeaker for small spaces, and the Vestia Center, a centre loudspeaker. The speakers can be combined with the SUB 600P subwoofer for deep and encompassing bass, while stands are tilted to provide an optimal and natural soundstage.
With styles inspired by Vesta and Hestia, the goddesses of the hearth and the home, the speakers come in Black High Gloss, Dark Wood, or Light Wood finishes for the side panels, accompanied by a black or white leather effect for the front panels. Metallic rings complete the aesthetic; while you can cover them with the provided grilles if desired.
Focal has chosen its Slatefiber cone for Vestia. Born with Chora in 2019, this cone is made from recycled carbon fibres. Focal has also chosen the ‘M’-shaped dome TAM tweeter for the treble. Initially developed for the car collection, this exclusive tweeter has been revamped to work with hi-fi loudspeakers, and now makes its first appearance in products for the home. Lastly, the loudspeakers feature a port towards the front for more frontal impact, and a rear port for an encompassing bass and deeper soundstage.
The Focal Vestia loudspeakers will be available January 2023 with Canadian pricing as follows: Vestia N°1($769 ea.), Vestia N°2 ($1,799 ea.), Vestia N°3 ($2,299 ea.), Vestia N°4 ($2,799 ea.), and Vestia Center ($899 ea.). The stands will be available for $319 for a pair and the Center Stand for $169 ea.
