Focal Aria K2 906 & Aria K2 Center
Focal is adding a bookshelf model and a center speaker to the Aria K2 family, allowing for a range of thrilling hi-fi and home cinema set-ups, alongside the Aria K2 936 floor-standing speaker launched last year. Aria K2 is a special edition of the original high-performance Aria 900 range, first launched by Focal in 2013. The Aria K2 906 and Aria K2 Center join the Aria K2 936 in offering an exceptional listening experience, enabled by a range of Focal innovations, including a next-generation K2 cone.
Manufactured in France at the Focal workshops, this aramid fiber 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, with the goal of guaranteeing high-quality audio performance with any musical genre.
The all-new Focal K2 cone applies fresh technologies and techniques to enhance our music and movie listening further still. It is now composed of a very light foam layer, sandwiched between a layer of Aramid fibers and a layer of fiberglass, ensuring 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.
Aria K2 products work together in perfect aesthetic and sound harmony. As such, Aria K2 936 or 906 can be installed on their own or they can be combined with Aria K2 Center in a Home Cinema system. Focal also recommend linking this range with the Sub 1000 F subwoofer to give your Home Cinema installation a deep and powerful boost of bass. The new Focal Aria K2 models will be available with a suggested retail price of 1200£/1498€/1990$ per pair for the Aria K2 906 and an SRP of 749£/799€/1190$ for the Aria K2 Center. The Aria K2 936 is available now, with an SRP of 3699£/3998€/5990$ per pair. Info and photos by Focal.
