Shipping now, the New Powered Desktop monitor from Focal brings technology and expertise from Focal’s successful line of studio monitors to the home and office desktop.
The XS Book is a full-range, user friendly, great sounding and energy efficient pair of powered desktop monitor loudspeakers designed for the music lover as well as the hobbyist music creator.
The performance of the XS Book comes as a result of all the development work carried out for the Focal CMS40 professional nearfield monitor. The XS Book follows the successful multimedia system the Focal XS 2.1 – a two sats and a sub system. The XS Book is a more compact powered two-speaker system delivering a bass response and impact quite staggering for its size.
One of the secrets to the XS Book’s performance is the vented port with a complex shape modelled by CAD to ensure laminar flow in order not to generate airflow noise and to maximise efficacy.
An integral high-performance 2×20 Watt amplifier is included giving crisp and detailed high frequencies and a solid weighty low end.
The cabinet and build are surprisingly strong and rigid, ensuring fine dynamics and low colouration.
A single multi-function knob allows control of volume as well as power/standby.
A carrier bag and a taller stand (for large dimension screens) are available as options.
XS Book is compatible with the Omnimount AB2 standard to allow easy wall mounting should it be required.
