Focal Viva Utopia Speakers

Focal is growing its Utopia line with the Viva, which comes in two varieties—a vertically oriented LCR that is also used for the surrounds and a horizontal center-channel that is otherwise essentially identical. Both incorporate the company's IAL2 beryllium tweeter and third-generation W-cone midranges and woofers for a frequency response from 39Hz to 50kHz (±3dB) and a sensitivity of 92dB/W/m.

These are beautiful. I like the fact that the center channel incorporates a tweeter sitting above the midrange driver to reduce lobing. Good design principle.

I only regret that they were on static display only; I had no opportunity to hear them. But you're right, the design principle seems very sound (so to speak!).
