The network now includes over 40 different stores
July 13, 2023 – The Focal Powered by Naim network continues to grow, with new stores opening every month. Since January, there have been 11 new spaces opened, including in the United States (Las Vegas, Newport Beach, Timonium, College Station), Canada (Markham, ON), Hungary (Budapest), France (Monaco), Germany (Baden-Baden), United Kingdom (Carlisle), Thailand (Chonburi) and Malaysia (Petaling Jaya). Focal and Naim, leading French and English brands in the worlds of sound and electronics, are positioning themselves closer to their customer base and revolutionizing access to the Hi-Fi experience with these stand-out stores, designed in truly contemporary living spaces.
The Focal Powered by Naim network includes three types of spaces: stores entirely dedicated to the two brands; shop-in-shops located within specialist audio and Home Cinema centers; and ‘corners’ set up on the premises of its retail partners. These points of sale are aimed at everyone, from music lovers to pure audiophiles as well as sound professionals. Customers can enjoy product presentations, demonstrations in listening rooms and expert advice – all high-end services designed to introduce them to products that meet all their listening needs.
LISTEN IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME
The brands invite you to travel through their world and to experience a personalized journey in a modern, green and – above all – ‘lifestyle’ environment. Customers make their way through conceptualized living spaces that enable them to imagine themselves in the comfort of their own home or recording studio. Most also have private listening rooms, headphone bars and open-plan living areas in where visitors can explore a wide range of products: floorstanding, in-wall/in-ceiling, outdoor, wireless and Home Cinema loudspeakers; open- and closed-back Hi-Fi headphones; noise-cancelling Bluetooth® headphones; music streaming devices; amplifiers; and exclusive special finishes. All the spaces are a stunning blend of careful design and powerful sound performance.
EXCEPTIONAL PRODUCTS, BESPOKE SERVICES, QOBUZ PLAYLISTS
Designed around sharing, these spaces place the customer at the heart of everything, supporting them on their journey of discovery with bespoke services and expert advice. For an even more unique experience, Focal and Naim have created a magazine for the network’s customers: PersPectives, which reflects the identity of the brands and the driving force behind them. They have also partnered with Qobuz to produce playlists that create bespoke musical ambiances for selected stores (Cannes, Lyon, Berlin, Houston, Miami, and more).
