Renowned French speaker manufacturer Focal, through its Malaysian distributor, will be fielding its wide range of speaker systems at the coming KL International AV Show 2019.

Among the most up-to-date Focal to be featured in the show, according to Kenny Sea of WKH Distribution, are the new Focal Kanta Nᵒ3 speakers, a three-way model and a reference product for the Kanta line.

A product of at least three years of research, the Kanta Nᵒ3 is said to be a superb marriage of the latest generation of Beryllium tweeter technology known as IAL3 and the company’s proprietary FLAX which enables it to optimise performance on its midrange and bass speaker driver units.

According to Focal the result is a greatly detailed sound brimming with warmth and musicality. Focal also points out that while the Kanta Nᵒ3 is much about sonic performance it is also a state-of-the-art design with its bold, resolutely modern and bewitching cabinet design which include up to eight front panel layers finished in either gloss or matt.

Measuring 1,280 x 386 x 520 mm, the Kanta Nᵒ3 weighs a hernia-inducing 46kg and features two 21cm Flax bass drivers, one 16.5cm Flax midrange and a 27mm IAL3 Beryllium tweeter.

In spite of its bulk, the Kanta Nᵒ3 is of above average sensitivity at 91db and is able to produce a bass extension up to 26 hertz.

To audition the Focal range of audio products, proceed to MR5A, Level 1, Vistana Hotel, on July 26-28.

Dick Tan is one of the longest serving member of the audio-video industry having spent close to 45 years in it. Tan started in the mid 70s working in audio showrooms and writing for fledgling audio magazines in the country.

“I have been through turntables to open reel and cassette tape decks to amplifiers and speakers in that golden era of hi-fi to the sophistication of today's digital audio and AV components such as Bluray and UHD Bluray discs players to streamers and beyond. In the end they all have one common goal … to achieve audio and video in the best, most efficient way possible.”

The other 'hat' that Tan wears, at least once each year, is that of the organiser of the AV Show which started in 1994. The KL International AV Show has been consistently held every year since for the last 26 record breaking years.
