Mixed on Focal #4

In 2021, Focal Naim America announced the beginning of its “Mixed On Focal” program. The program consists of a series of playlists that showcase the true sound of music as the artist, mix engineer, producer, and record label originally intended.

Continuing with the program Focal Naim has released its fourth “Mixed on Focal” playlist. This new HD Audio 23-track streaming playlist includes music from Drake’s latest album Honestly, Nevermind mixed on Focal Trio11 monitors. 

All four “Mixed on Focal” playlists released so far are available today on Apple Music, Qobuz, Tidal, and Amazon Music HD. Focal Naim is expected to release more playlists.

With Spotify set to release its HiFi-Audio tier (we have been waiting for over a year!), Focal Naim also making the Spotify option available with all four playlists (even though Spotify’s Hi-Fi listening option isn’t available yet).

Mixed-on Focal high-resolution audio playlists are available to Focal HI-FI and Pro Audio dealers, as well as the media and current and prospective customers. Whether it be in a HI-FI or Pro Audio dealer demonstration, or their home or recording studio using Focal speakers, the music will sound as the artist intended since each song was mixed on Focal loudspeakers.

Tip: The playlists can also be accessed by any streaming music listener that subscribes to the streaming services they are available on, and if you have Focal speakers and a Naim audio system all the better.
