For aficionados of home theater and audio, few brands command as much respect as Focal, renowned for their tireless dedication to engineering excellence and sonic innovation, exemplified once more by the Focal Scala Utopia Evo speaker system.

In the rich landscape of home entertainment, where every detail contributes to the immersive experience, sound holds equal importance alongside visual elements. The Focal Scala Utopia Evo isn't merely a speaker, it's a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship of acoustic engineering, offering an experience that transcends mere listening to become a journey into the heart of sound.

The Scala Utopia Evo builds upon the esteemed legacy of the Utopia III series, preserving its iconic sound architecture while significantly reducing harmonic distortion in the mid-range register. This refinement ensures that vocals and instruments are reproduced with a pristine naturalness rarely found in other audio systems.

Focal's unwavering commitment to innovation shines through in the Scala Utopia Evo, boasting advanced technologies such as the Neutral Inductance Circuit (NIC) and Tuned Mass Damping (TMD) Suspension. These innovations work harmoniously to deliver an audio experience that is both precise and powerful, devoid of unwanted resonance and distortion.

One of the most notable features of the Scala Utopia Evo is its capability for bi-amplification, allowing for separate amplification of the bass and mid-range/treble registers. This level of flexibility empowers users to tailor the power and character of the sound to their exact preferences, ensuring a truly personalized listening experience.

Focal spares no expense when it comes to quality, and the Scala Utopia Evo is a testament to this philosophy. Each component is carefully selected and subjected to rigorous real-condition testing, ensuring unparalleled reliability and performance. Handcrafted in France, these speakers are not merely pieces of technology but true works of art.

As visually striking as they are acoustically impressive, the Scala Utopia Evo speakers are available in a range of colors and wood finishes to complement any decor. Coated with a high gloss varnish, these speakers exude an air of elegance and luxury, making them a focal point of any room.

At the heart of the Scala Utopia Evo's performance lies its advanced driver configuration, featuring woofers, a midrange driver, and a tweeter, all meticulously engineered to deliver unparalleled clarity and precision across the entire frequency spectrum.

The cabinet of the Scala Utopia Evo utilizes Gamma Structure technology, employing precision-cut MDF panels and internal braces to minimize unwanted resonance and enhance sound purity. This meticulous attention to detail ensures that each speaker delivers an immersive and distortion-free listening experience.

Focus Time technology further enhances the audio experience by aligning the phase of the drivers, resulting in a cohesive soundstage where every instrument and voice is placed with pinpoint accuracy within the auditory space.
