High-end audio specialist Focal has added centre channel and bookshelf models to its Aria K2 family, allowing integrators to specify the system for home cinema and media room use. The new additions join the Aria K2 936 floorstander 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 Centre join the Aria K2 936, and share the same ultra-rigid cabinet construction, plus the brand’s 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 the revered 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 iteration applies novel technologies and techniques, including a very light foam layer, sandwiched between a layer of Aramid fibres and a layer of fibreglass. Partnering the K2 cones are aluminium/magnesium TNF tweeters, with Poron suspension.

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

All Aria K2 products are tonally paired. The Aria K2 936 or 906 can be installed on their own or combined with the Aria K2 Centre in a home theatre. For deep LFE, Focal suggests adding its Sub 1000 F subwoofer.

The new Focal Aria K2 models are priced at £1,200 per pair for the Aria K2 906, and £749 / for the Aria K2 Centre. The Aria K2 936 floorstander sells for £3,699.
