The Scala is the first floor stander in the world renowned Focal Utopia range. It shares many technologies and design points as its bigger brother and their flagship the Grande Utopia.

Inner Ear Magazine once review the Scala V1 and said – “I agree with a statement J. Gordon Holt published many years ago which said that “Midrange accuracy should be the STARTING POINT of loudspeaker design, onto which our other prized audiophile attributes should then be appended in order to convert that musical midrange into a semblance of literal accuracy.”

I’d like readers to understand why I devoted much time to define the Scalas’ performance at various frequency segments and I hope to have made it quite clear that the Scalas midrange is truly stunning. What makes them very special indeed is that the designers succeeded to bring bottom and top frequencies together with equal energy, so that the all-round presentation is without voids. Thus the Scalas sound relaxed and natural with virtually all musical program material and almost make one forget that they are, after all, important components of a music system. With an appropriate amp/preamp combination, they will impeccably reproduce the personality of amp, preamp and source components. This will likely appeal to audiophiles as they can achieve the desired or preferred sound. However, the Scalas’ are also enviably musical — and I attribute this to their ability to reveal the harmonics, likely beyond the 10th harmonic. This, of course, reveals the personality of instruments and voices in any musical program material, and will please those who are primarily music lovers.”
