When it comes to home cinema systems, none will argue that the centre piece is either going to be an enormous television or a projector and screen. However, it stands to reason that if you are going to invest time and money in setting up an audio visual hub, you want an equally impressive set of speakers to do your set up justice.
Here at Create Automation we stock a selection of wired and wireless speakers from a number of reputable brands suitable for any home cinema system. However, in this post we are going to home in on some of the speakers available from Focal, who have been producing high fidelity speakers and drivers for nearly 30 years. Founded in 1979 by Jacques Mahul, Focal has established itself as one of the leading suppliers of speakers and headphones and enjoys a worldwide reputation for quality.
Focal Bird 2.1
Though a basic package, consisting of two speakers and a combined amp subwoofer module, this all in one system offers smooth sound and easy installation. While this system is ideal for a home music system, it can also be easily attached and used alongside your television to add some extra audio clout to your films and DVDs. The system can produce anywhere from 50 to 60 Hz and has three analogue inputs and one digital input. What’s more, there’s good news for all the iPod, iPhone and iPad owners as it can be linked wirelessly to most apple products.
Focal Sib 5.1 Home Cinema Pack
Alternatively, the Focal Sib 5.1 Home Cinema Pack could be considered something of an upgrade over the Focal Bird system. The system set has a good sound range and its speakers can be mounted on the wall or simply placed in and around your chosen space, making them incredibly versatile. When it comes to actual sound though, the system can deliver anything from 75 Hz to 20 kHz and can reach up to 90db. In addition, the Focal Sib system is lauded for being able to handle all types of sound with ease; be it vocalisation or bass, it ensures crisp sound throughout.
Though quite strange looking, the Dome 5.1 speaker system is a high quality sound system. Its distinctive dome appearance is actually what sets it apart from other sets as its dome sub-woofer is capable of producing sound normally reserved for much larger speakers. According to Focal, the system usesa hybrid digital/analogue BASH amplifier, which ensures good quality sound whether it is being used for music or DVDs. Similar to the Focal Sib 5.1, the satellite speakers that come with this system are highly versatile and can be easily wall mounted and adjusted to allow for the optimum surround sound experience.
These are just a few of the Focal systems that we stock here at Create Automation; the full range can be viewed online. We also stock speakers and home cinema systems from a host of other brands, so whatever product you are looking for, we have something that can suit your home and budgetary requirements.
