Focal Headphones and New Arche DAC/Amp

Focal ranks near the top of many listeners' lists for high performance headphones. 

The incredible Utopia ($3999) is a true reference level open back headphone, and the new Stellia (pictured: $2999) may well be the best closed-back design available.

For under $2k the Focal Clear's are the headphones to beat, while for closed-back secluded listening for under $1000, the Elegia's ($899) are the standard setters.

And just beginning to ship: Focal's first headphone DAC/amp, called Arche ($2499), developed for Focal by Micromega. Arche includes presets to ideally match electrically to every set of Focal headphones. The amplifier circuitry is a pure Class A, dual mono design with each channel pushing 1 watt. The Arche DAC section contains two balanced AK 4490 converters each with a dedicated regulated power supply. These converters will process 384kHz PCM format signals as well as DSD 256.
