We already have the announcement of the Focal Elegia here and some pictures from RMAF 2018/CanJam of them in use here. However, as these are already in the hands of dealers, are actually shipping (a bit ahead of what I had gathered might be the case pre-show), and production units are just starting to arrive with actual customers … I figured it was time to spin-up the official thread for them.
Despite Fedex’s best efforts to the contrary, that’s my literally-just-arrived pair above (hence the quick-and-dirty grab-shot) - many thanks to @andrew and @taronlissimore for getting those to me so promptly!
And as you can see, Focal are using the “Clear” packaging rather than that of the Elear or Utopia - which includes the rather nice ($150 if bought separately) carry case - not something I had realized was included even after chatting with the Focal ladies and gents at the CanJam.
Full review to follow once I’ve had time to let them run a bit and do some serious listening. May post some stream-of-conciousness impressions as I go along too …
