Focal has this week launched a new Aria speaker, the Aria K2 936; it is a new edition of the 3 way floor standing Aria 936 model and it features the iconic Focal K2 cone and an Ash Grey exclusive finish, it looks beautiful.
The K2 sandwich cone in aramid fibre was revealed by Focal for the first time in 1986, and with the addition of the latest technologies in particular an ultralight foam core sandwiched between a layer of aramid fibres and a layer of glass fibres, the K2 cone guarantees a pure and precise sound. The press release emphasises the three-point mantra of Focal that I recall from the Kanta launch I attended a few years ago, notably: rigidity, lightness and damping. The new Aria K2 936 promises these virtues, with style.
The Focal Aria K2 936 will be available during November 2020 with the SRP of £3699 / €4000 / $5990 per pair.
