New Naim & Focal what?

Saw this on Twitter right now. I’m getting curious….

I have seen (on here…?) mention of an ‘Announcement’ on 4th Jan… :thinking:

It’s getting quite exciting.
Just days to go before the big reveal.
I wonder how much the “Leaks” have revealed of the Jan 4th announcements…:thinking:

Well, we ‘know’ about at least 2 Streaming related products… no names.

Just thinking aloud - how about a user programmable replacement for the SNAXO’s… :astonished: :crazy_face:

If this video is to give a hint then active speakers powered by naim seems likely.

Damn.

This looks like I’m going to get even poorer…

I don’t see anything new in this…? Just a big Focal speaker and the Naim Statement…?

They seem to merge at the end of the video in one component, Focal speakers over the Statement-style base of possibly power amp forming an active combo.
That’s what I saw, but I could be wrong.
Maybe it’s just an artistic expression…

That was my take too. Exciting times ahead!

A powered speaker with an integrated streaming module? Should be great……just add a turntable.

Something similar to Dynaudios latest range of streaming active speakers would be very tempting!

My money is on a merger of 200 level Classic equipment with the newer range. 272 replacement plus matching power amp and perhaps an optional power supply.

A bridge - more ‘lifestyle’ - system between the single box set-up and we, the multi-box fringe element.

Perhaps a new range to take over the classic range, new amps, streamers, etc.
The 500 range for now is untouched.
I would also be very surprised not to see some new active focal speakers as why wouldn’t they ?
Lots of dealers right now selling there demo classic range off, just look how many NDX2 are for sale right now.
Hopefully some very interesting new products about to hit the market and probably more to come.

Imagine the uproar if they merge naim and focal into one brand? Faim or nocal or something even more imaginative.

Well I don’t really care what new products are released but I’m intrigued to know what colour and how large the knob.

Exciting indeed, been a while since anything new.
I remember well the endless debates of the olive to classic change.
Here hoping Naim deliver their usual high quality

I’m curious to know where Naim are heading in the future, but not interested in buying anything. Firmly entrenched in the Olive era here, with pots of unspent money to dispose of on other fun stuff.

If Naim are coming out with a new range of toys, some of you might be well advised to get a cushion for your chin to land on when you see the prices. Let’s hope it’s not too big a shock!

That’s something like my girlfriend, now my wife said on our first date!

Exciting stuff - looking forward to seeing how the active range sounds and at what level they are launching. From the video teaser it looks like top tier!
