The Focal Powered By Naim experience has expanded into California with a shop-in-shop location inside Brilliant AV in Newport Beach.

We were one of the first to visit the Focal Powered By Naim Houston location during the pandemic and it was clear from our time with Wendy Knowles, PR Director, Focal & Naim North America, that both brands have a very clear retail strategy that is already paying huge dividends.

The Focal Powered By Naim retail experience are either boutique locations or shop-in-shop within existing A/V stores; the Houston and Newport Beach locations are different examples of both options which give participating dealers the ability to focus on Naim and Focal systems, whilst still offering other brands — or specifically focus on Naim and Focal.
