Focal Elear, one of the new, highly anticipated arrivals have . . . arrived.
They look so smart in the box that it seems a shame to open them. But we must, and will. Just as soon as I’ve taken this picture.
The pair we heard a few weeks ago impressed us hugely. Wonder how much run-in they’ll need.
If you harbour an itch about these, scratch it. Preferably here! The Utopias are not far behind, we believe.
