French audio manufacturer Focal has announced at CES 2024 the latest addition to its prestigious Aria line, the Focal Aria Evo X. These high-fidelity loudspeakers represent a revamp of the acclaimed Aria 900 range, aiming to elevate both sound quality and design to provide audiophiles with a superior listening experience.

Aria Evo X, designed with the brand's core philosophy in mind, promises to deliver a pure and immersive listening experience, building on the legacy of its predecessor which has enjoyed a decade of success.

The Focal Aria Evo X lineup consists of five distinct models tailored to cater to various preferences and room sizes. These include one compact bookshelf speaker (Aria Evo X N°1), three slender floorstanding speakers (N°2, N°3, N°4), and one additional model designed to create an impressive soundstage in a home cinema configuration (Aria Evo X Center).

The Aria Evo X Center, a 2-way center speaker, is seamlessly integrated with the floorstanding speakers in the same range to create an optimal home cinema configuration. The speaker features two 6.5" Flax bass/midrange drivers. With a frequency response ranging from 57Hz to 30kHz and a recommended listening distance of 10 feet, this center speaker is tailored for rooms measuring at least 215 ft².

The Aria Evo X N°1, a 2-way bookshelf loudspeaker, retains the essence of the Aria 900 range, offering sophisticated sound quality and premium materials. It boasts a 6.5" Flax bass/midrange driver with TMD surround and an Aluminium/Magnesium ‘M’-shaped inverted dome TAM tweeter. This bookshelf speaker is recommended for rooms of at least 161 ft² and a listening distance of 7 to 10 feet.

With two 6.5" Flax bass drivers, and a 6.5" Flax midrange driver with TMD surround, it provides a frequency response from 45Hz to 30kHz. This model is suited for rooms measuring at least 215 ft², with a recommended listening distance of 10 feet.

The Aria Evo X N°3, another 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker, combines elegant design with a modest footprint. It features three 6.5" Flax bass drivers, and a 6.5" Flax midrange driver. With a frequency response ranging from 39Hz to 30kHz, this speaker is suitable for rooms starting at 269 ft², with a recommended listening distance of 10 to 13 feet.

For those who desire an imposing floorstanding loudspeaker, the Aria Evo X N°4 features two 8" Flax bass drivers, and a 6.5" Flax midrange driver. It offers a frequency response from 37Hz to 30kHz and is ideal for larger spaces, starting at 323 ft², with a recommended listening distance of 10 to 16 feet.

Focal's Aria Evo X range incorporates innovative technology, such as the 'M'-shaped inverted dome TAM tweeter, which enhances treble reproduction, and the TMD technology in the midrange driver surround to reduce distortion and deliver balanced dynamics.

The woofer's magnet has also been redesigned to improve bass impact, and the crossovers have been enhanced with superior components to achieve better loudspeaker balance.

One standout feature of the Focal Aria Evo X series is the iconic Flax cone, which is now present in both the midrange and bass drivers. This cone, crafted from French flax fiber, is known for its natural sound reproduction, devoid of coloration, and its ability to reproduce vocals with exceptional clarity and definition.

Additionally, Focal introduces a new Moss Green High Gloss finish to complement the existing Black High Gloss and Prime Walnut options. This fresh finish adds a modern touch to the loudspeakers, enhancing their visual appeal.
