Mixed on Focal Playlist #5

Music. It always needs to be about the music. Cambridge Audio flipped its entire marketing campaign in 2022 to focus completely on music and launched a new podcast series that is drawing huge numbers. We discuss that pivot to “music first” on the next episode of the eCoustics Podcast with Cambridge Audio, and it’s good to see that other brands are getting the message.

Focal Naim America has been pushing the music angle for awhile and not just on the consumer A/V side; Focal has become very popular in the Pro Audio category and the brand has been working very hard behind the scenes working with creators and engineers to build awareness.

Focal Naim America has released the fifth high-resolution audio playlist for “Mixed on Focal.” The program highlights the true sound of music as the artist, mix engineer, producer, and record label meant the songs to be heard.

Each of the five playlists features a wide range of music genres from rock and R&B to electronic dance music, pop, country—and even instrumental synthesizer music—and 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 dealer demonstration, a Pro Audio dealer demonstration, or listening in a home or pro recording studio using Focal speakers, the music will sound as the artist intended since each song was mixed on Focal. 

This new HD Audio 21-track streaming playlist features music mixes from thirteen mix engineers. All five “Mixed on Focal” playlists are available today for Apple MusicQobuzTidal, and Amazon Music HD, with new playlists to be released periodically. 

“Listeners want to hear music the way the artist meant their music to sound,” said Romain Vet, VP of Sales & Marketing, Focal Naim America, “and now Focal offers them a way to do that by listening to ‘Mixed on Focal’ high-resolution streaming playlists on Focal speakers or headphones—the same quality speakers the songs were mixed on. Mixed on Focal playlists create a perfect way to show off the incredible sound of Focal.”
