We’ll be showcasing an awesome system that includes the Focal Maestro Utopia III Evo floorstanding speakers, the latest evolution of the Utopia III line. The Maestro boasts Focal’s finest elements: cables made in France, denser acoustic materials inside the subwoofer, double terminal boards and separate crossovers. Plus, it now offers bi-amplification, just like the top-of-the-line Grande Utopia EM and Stella.

Also featured will be the new MOON 390 preamp/DAC/music streamer, which incorportes a state-of-the-art high-res DAC and built-in support for MQA and several streaming music services.
