Focal Vestia No1 Bookshelf Speakers (Pair)
Our new surprise favorites at this price point. Why ‘surprise’? Our experience with Focal speakers has always revealed an extra sparkly top end (tweeter/treble region) which is terrific provided they are somewhat carefully matched with the equipment upstream from them (e.g. amplifier). The Vestia line still has a wonderfully detailed tweeter. However, it is a more forgiving design than what we’ve heard with other outstanding speaker lines by Focal, such as the Kanta series. We are getting wonderful results from Cambridge, Marantz and Rega amplifiers and sources by those lines.
We love the new sound profile of this new offering by Focal, and they're made in France. If this line was a variety of wine we’d say: syrah. Take that analogy with a grain of salt (or a nice appetizer)!
The Vestia No1 is the first speaker in this new line by Focal that we tried in our listening room and it quickly won us over. This is a front ported design that allows for easier placement than most rear ported designs. It has a very open and lively sound. GREAT especially for classical, acoustic jazz and vocals but they can rock out when called upon.
