Wireless Sound System: The Focal Easya is a powered wireless sound
system consisting of a wireless hub/transmitter and two amplified floor-standing
loudspeakers that provide optimal acoustic sound. The Easya combines all the
qualities of a classic high-fidelity speaker system with today's wireless and
digital music technology. The Focal Easya provides CD-quality (16-bit/44.1kHz)
sound over a 2.4GHz wireless transmission thanks to Kleer technology.
Note: Kleer technology offers a 33' range between the hub/transmitter and
Powered Wireless Towers: The Focal Easya includes Left & Right
two-and-a-half-way bass-reflex loudspeakers with built-in 85-watt (RMS) BASH digital amplifiers
and CD-quality digital wireless receivers.
Each tower speaker features a 1" Aluminum/Magnesium inverted dome TNV2 tweeter with Poron suspension
softer treble sound and two 5" Polyglass cone woofers deliver rich midrange,
accurate bass, and high power handling. The drivers are housed in a bass reflex
enclosure with a front-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass. The
enclosure is made of ultra rigid MDF construction for excellent inertia and
- TNV2 Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter developed for the Easya
speaker uses Focal's exclusive inverted dome technology, for optimal energy
transfer and limited directivity. The aluminum/magnesium makeup guarantees
exception performance in terms of stiffness and damping, thus ensuring a
subtle blend of softness and dynamics. Performance of the TNV2 tweeter is
enhanced by its new Poron suspension material. Poron is a polyurethane
micro-cellular foam which has a porous open-cell structure. This memory foam
is very light which means that the suspension will not become damaged or
compressed with time. It is an essential element of the TNV2 tweeter as the
suspension allows the dome to move freely. Its uniform and constant physical
properties ensure excellent stability and linearity, along with extreme
accuracy and distortion-free sound. The result is a sound which is soft and
precise and which offers improved harmonics richness and a more precise
- Polyglass Cone Woofers: The Polyglass cone woofer has been a
Focal tradition for the last 30 years. This cellulose fiber cone woofer
offers renowned lightness and damping characteristics. But its Focal's
special surface treatment of silica micro-balls which gives the woofer a
huge increase in rigidity for a negligible increase in mass. The definition
and dynamic capacity of this cone, when combined with a very powerful
magnet, generate a very fine reproduction, with an exceptionally rich
Note: There is a channel switch on the back of the speakers which allow
you to determine which speaker is Left and which speaker is Right.
Digital Wireless Transmitter: The
included hub acts as a digital wireless transmitter that connects your
digital and analog audio sources to Easya speaker system. Once you have your
audio sources connected, the Hub then sends the audio signal wirelessly to the
loudspeakers with no loss in quality or compression thanks to 2.4GHz Kleer technology.
Thanks to a variety of analog and digital inputs, the hub can be connected to
almost any device
- Analog Inputs: There is one analog stereo RCA input and one
stereo minijack (3.5mm) input for connection of almost any analog audio
device with an audio or headphone output.
- Digital Inputs: There is one optical (toslink) digital input and
one coaxial (RCA) digital input which allows connection of digital
components, such as your TV, Blu-ray player, Satellite/Cable box, or Network
player. Both digital inputs support PCM audio signal up to 24-bit/96kHz
(does not support multichannel audio formats).
Note: The loudspeakers and the hub have been linked at Focal prior to
carrying out the final test on your system. The hub can only be linked to a
maximum of two speakers. In the event that the link between the hub and one or
two speakers is lost, you can re-link the Hub with the speaker or speakers.
USB DAC: The digital wireless hub/transmitter can be used as an
external DAC for your Windows or Mac computer. Simply connect the
hub/transmitter's miniUSB (type-B) port to a free USB (type-A) port on your
computer using a miniUSB-to-USB cable (not provided). This type of connection
bypasses the soundcard of your computer and utilizes the 24-bit/96kHz DAC inside
the Easya's hub/transmitter. Now you can listen to your music library stored on
your Windows PC or Mac computer through the Focal Easya speaker system with
incredible detail and sound, just like the artist intended. The included IR
remote offers basic playback control, such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next
Track. Advanced music navigation and song/artist information will still be done
from your computer or laptop.
Built-in aptX Bluetooth: The digital wireless hub/transmitter features
built-in Bluetooth which allows you to wirelessly stream audio from your
Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry,
Windows PC, Mac computer, etc.. You'll be able to stream stored music or music
apps from your Bluetooth-enabled device to the Easya speaker system. The Focal
Easya even employs aptX decoding for lossless, CD-quality streaming with
compatible aptX-compatible smartphones (like Android OS 4.0+ ). The included IR
remote provides basic playback control, such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next
Track. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device for
advanced music navigation and to view song/artist information.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some
Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not
support all features when used with the Focal Easya speaker system.
Remote Control: The Focal Easya system comes with an IR remote for
wireless operation of the speaker system. The remote provides Power On/Off,
Input Selection, Volume Up/Down, and Mute functions; plus basic playback control
(Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track) of your USB or Bluetooth connected device.
Spiked Feet: The Focal Easya floor-standing speakers come
with spiked feet for carpeted flooring. The feet
thread into the bottom of the speaker and are adjustable to level the speaker up
with your floors. Also, included are rubber caps for the spiked feet to protect
your hardwood and tile floors. The feet add approximately 0.625" to the overall
height of the speaker.
AC Power w/ Auto Standby: Each power floor-standing speaker and the
wireless hub/transmitter includes a detachable AC power cord which will need to
be plugged into an AC wall outlet, power conditioner, or surge protector. The AC
cord sits 1.5" from the back of the speaker. If
there is no audio signal detected from the hub input for approximately three
minutes, both speakers and the hub will move to standby mode. The hub's and
speaker's LEDs will light up in red. Once an audio signal is detected on the
last input selected, the system will be reactivated. The hub will provide the
musical signal to the speakers after a few seconds, the LEDs on the Hub and
speakers will light up in white.
Placement: The loudspeakers should be positioned symmetrically, facing
the listening area, ideally forming an equilateral triangle with it. It is,
however, possible to vary these distances to arrive at the ideal compromise for
any particular conditions. The loudspeakers should be positioned at the same
height, in the same horizontal plane. Ideally, the tweeter should be positioned
at the same height as the listener's ear when listening normally. Do not
position your loudspeakers too close to a corner of the room and do not place
them too close to a wall. If positioned close to a wall or a corner this has the
effect of exciting certain resonances within the room and artificially
increasing the bass. Conversely, if the bass level is judged to be insufficient,
you could try moving the loudspeakers nearer a wall to re-balance the bass
