New Aria Flagship

French loudspeaker maker, Focal today announced the all-new limited edition Aria K2 936 floor standing loudspeakers for audiophiles seeking a very linear sound with “impressive dynamics.” It is the new flagship model of Aria line surplanting the Aria 936 (non-K2 version) designed for large rooms measuring from 270 ft2 (25m2) and used from a listening distance of 10-12 ft (3m – 3.5m).

Designed and manufactured in France, Aria K2 936 is a 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker with a small footprint, exactly the same as its predecessor, the Aria 936. The K2 version implements an exclusive, trademark yellow K2 cone instead of an exclusive flax cone. The TNF tweeter with Poron suspension are exactly the same, along with all port and driver locations. All printed specifications are exactly the same between the two models, except the K2 model increases its minimum amplifier requirement by 10-watts.

Key Points

The Focal Aria K2 936 claims to offer impressive power handling and dynamics. In a stereo installation, the company says its listening experience speaks for itself, whatever genre of music you like to play. Focal further states its multi-port PowerFlow system adds more impact, a floor facing vent provides for more depth, and its aluminum/magnesium TNF tweeter generates silky trebles. Plus, its ultra-rigid MDF construction minimizes internal vibrations.

K2 Cone

In its trademark yellow, the K2 sandwich cone in aramid fiber was revealed by Focal for the first time in 1986. Made in France, it has continued to evolve over the years, enhancing the brand’s star products and always combining the three key success factors for a speaker driver: rigidity, lightness and damping. Now comprising an ultralight foam core sandwiched between a layer of aramid fibers and a layer of glass fibers, the company says the K2 cone guarantees a pure and precise sound, with no coloration. By incorporating this cone in the Aria 936, the Focal engineers demonstrate their innovative spirit, offering ever more character while maintaining high performance, for a Premium Hi-Fi product.

Price & Availability

The Focal Aria K2 936 loudspeakers will be available Q1 2021 for $5,990/pair in Ash Grey premium finish from the Utopia line and a front panel adorned with an elegant leather effect.
