Focal Adds 906 Bookshelf and Center Speaker to K2 Range

Following yesterday's news of Focal's 300 On Wall series, the French audio firm announces additions to its Aria K2 speaker range.

Focal is adding a bookshelf model and a centre speaker to the Aria K2 family, alongside the Aria K2 936 floorstanding speaker launched last year.

Aria K2 is a special edition of the original high-performance Aria 900 range, first launched by Focal in 2013 and features a next-generation K2 cone.

Manufactured in France at the Focal workshops, this aramid fibre cone is an evolution of the iconic Polykevlar cone featured on classic 1980s JMLab speakers. The original was engineered to improve the balance between weight, rigidity and damping.

The all-new Focal K2 cone is now composed of a very light foam layer sandwiched between a layer of Aramid fibres and a layer of fibreglass. This design, we are told, ensures a clear and precise sound void of any coloration. Perfectly complementing the K2 cones are aluminum/ magnesium TNF tweeters with Poron suspension for a smoother sound.

The new Aria K2 906 and Aria K2 Center join the Aria K2 936 in having an ultra-rigid cabinet construction, featuring non-parallel elements - all in the service of reduced vibrations and outstanding neutrality.

All speakers come in an Ash Grey finish exclusive to Focal. This premium finish - also seen on the company's flagship Utopia products – combines with a leather-effect front panel for added elegance.

Naturally, the Aria K2 products work together in perfect aesthetic and sonic harmony. For example, Aria K2 936 or 906 can be installed as pairs for stereo listening or combined with Aria K2 Center for a home cinema system. Why not bring in the Sub 1000 F subwoofer and give your movies more impact.

The new Focal Aria K2 models will be available later this month with a suggested retail price of $1,990 per pair for the Aria K2 906 and an SRP of $1,190 for the Aria K2 Centre. The Aria K2 936 is available now, with an SRP of $5,990 per pair.
