Our take on the Focal Little Bird Pack 2.1

by Marshall Chase
Focal

These Little Birds can sing

You relax in your favorite room as the air comes alive with the sounds of your latest playlist. As your ears perk up and you begin to get that rush of emotion from the music, you realize it just sounds bigger than you thought it would coming through this little décor-friendly system. Welcome to your first encounter with the Little Bird — Focal's latest entré to stylish listening.

Focal Power Bird

A modern system that fills your room with sound — not components

Versatility should be the Little Bird's middle name. And compact versatility at that. This system connects to classic audio/video sources like Blu-ray and DVD, making it a perfect companion to your television. Analog inputs include RCA and a mini stereo jack, so music from your CD player or portable player will make itself right at home. And with its built-in Kleer® wireless receiver, this system lets you add an optional Focal USB dongle to enjoy favorites from your computer or an optional Focal iPod dongle for playing music wirelessly from your favorite portable Apple device.

The main console, known as the Power Bird, features a unique design — part integrated amplifier, part powered subwoofer. In addition to containing all the connections for your audio sources, the Power Bird drives the system's satellite speakers with 35 watts of power each, and pushes its own built-in 6-1/2" subwoofer with an 80-watt amplifier. This console won't take up much room on a shelf, and you can even mount it vertically on the wall using the provided bracket mounting system.

Great sound from any perch

Focal Little Bird satellite

The Little Bird speakers make your music stand out clearly while remaining visually inconspicuous. Each two-way speaker delivers rock-steady performance with your favorite tunes and video soundtracks. You get two different types of stands that let you set the speakers on a shelf or even mount them aloft on your wall. Wherever they alight, you'll enjoy the harmony they bring to your listening and your living space.

Features

Little Bird 2.1 System: The Focal Little Bird 2.1ch speaker system provides powerful and dynamic sound for your connected TV, satellite/cable box, DVD/Blu-ray player, game-console, computer, and/or digital audio player. It offers both analog and digital audio connections. The Little Bird 2.1ch speaker system consists of two satellite speakers (Little Birds) and a integrated amplifier/subwoofer (the Power Bird). The Little Bird 2.1ch system also features built-in Kleer technology for wireless audio streaming of select devices. In addition, speaker wire and mounting hardware are also provided. The Focal Little Bird system can produce stunning sound in rooms of 131 sq/ft or more.

Power Bird Integrated Amp/Sub: The Power Bird integrated amplifier/subwoofer is at the heart of  the Focal Little Bird system. The Power Bird combines an integrated amplifier with a built-in subwoofer. The integrated amplifier powers the included Little Bird satellite speakers and provides connection of your analog and digital sources. The built-in subwoofer adds extra depth and bass to your audio soundtracks. The integrated amplifier is rated at 35 watts x 2ch (satellite speakers) + 80 watts x 1ch (sub). The built-in subwoofer is a down-firing 6.5" paper cone woofer with a rubber surround that is capable of producing lows down to 42Hz (+/-3dB). There is an acoustically-tuned port, covered by metal mesh grill, on the front-panel of the Power Bird for added efficiency and bass response.

Little Bird Satellite Speakers: The Little Bird satellite speakers are an ultra-compact 2-way sealed (acoustic suspension) speaker that produce impressive sound for its size. Each speaker employs a 0.75" aluminum dome tweeter for crisp, clear highs; and a 4" polyflex cone midbass driver for accurate, detailed midrange. These ultra-compact speakers feature a contemporary looking cabinet in either a gloss-black or gloss-white finish (with matching grille). There is also a silver rim around each speaker.

Controls

Front-Panel Controls: The Focal Little Bird 2.1ch speaker system features a front-panel rotary volume control and a source-select button (Analog 1/2/3, Digital, Wireless) across the front-panel of the Power Bird (integrated amp/sub). Simply keep, pressing the source-select button until you access the desired input. The front-panel rotary knob controls the entire system's volume.

Subwoofer Controls: The Focal Little Bird system offers subwoofer controls on the rear-panel of the Power Bird integrated amp/sub. There is a rotary bass level control and phase switch (0°/180°) for the built-in subwoofer. The bass level control and phase switch lets you blend the built-in subwoofer's sound with the included Little Bird satellite speakers.

Built-In Crossover: The Power Bird integrated amplifier/subwoofer features three dip-switches on the rear-panel that controls the unit's built-in crossover. As the default, the built-in crossover is set for the included Little Bird satellite speakers. The crossover can also be set for Focal's Super Bird or Bird satellite speakers. This is not a variable crossover; it can only be set to pre-fixed crossover frequencies to accommodate Focal's Bird series of speakers. In most cases, you sure never have to adjust these dip-switches.

Auto Power: The Little Bird 2.1ch speaker system automatically turns on when it is receiving an audio signal from a connected source (whether wired or wireless). If there is no audio signal input to the Little Bird system for approximately 20 minutes, it will automatically switch to standby mode.

Note: The main power switch is located on the rear-panel of the Power Bird integrated amplifier/subwoofer.

Remote Control: The Little Bird speaker system comes with an IR remote control for wireless operation of the system. It includes Power, Volume up/down, and Source-Select controls. The remote control will also operate basic playback functions of your wirelessly connected iPod/iPhone/iPad or computer (wireless transmitters sold separately). Playback functions include - Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Skip Previous/Next. The remote operates off of a single CR2032 3V lithium 'coin-type' battery.

Focal Remote App: A free Focal Remote app for Apple iOS devices coming soon (available from iTunes later this year)...

Connections

Analog Audio Inputs: The Power Bird (integrated amp/sub) of the Little Bird 2.1ch speaker system is fitted with three analog audio inputs on the rear-panel. There are two sets of stereo audio RCA inputs for your TV, satellite/cable box, DVD/Blu-ray player, or game-console. And, one stereo audio 3.5mm minijack input for your TV, computer, or digital audio player.

Note: The Little Bird speaker system does not contain any video inputs or outputs.

Digital Audio Inputs: The Power Bird integrated amplifier/subwoofer is also fitted with two rear-panel digital audio inputs. There is one optical (toslink) digital input and a coaxial (RCA) digital input for connecting your TV, satellite/cable box, DVD/Blu-ray player, or game-console. Only one of these inputs can be used (not both). If you are connecting the Little Bird 2.1ch speaker system to your TV, connect all your external audio/video devices (such as your satellite/cable box, DVD/Blu-ray player, and game-console) to the TV; and then run an optical digital cable from your television to the Focal Little Bird system.

Note: The system's digital inputs (optical/coaxial) will only recognize a PCM digital audio signal (not Dolby Digital). Make sure your television is set to output a PCM digital audio signal. If your television does not support 2-channel PCM through its optical digital output, then connect your television to the Focal Little Bird system via an analog connection (RCA/minijack).

Kleer Wireless Receiver: The Focal Little Bird 2.1ch speaker system features an integrated Kleer wireless receiver for wireless audio transmission when wirelessly connected to other Kleer compatible devices. Kleer wireless technology delivers lossless CD-quality digital stereo audio (with no compression) over a robust 2.4GHz radio-frequency link (up to 33') with very low power consumption.

  • Optional iTransmitter for iPod: Simply connect the optional iTransmitter (091BIPD, sold separately) to your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad's dock connector and it will automatically transmit to the Focal Little Bird speaker system (when the system is in Wireless mode).  The iTransmitter provides a non-compressed wireless audio transmission of your Apple device's stored music or streaming music apps. The iTransmitter is compatible with most iPods, iPhones, and iPad's with dock connector.
  • Optional Wireless USB Transmitter: Focal's optional wireless USB transmitter (091BUSBD, sold separately) will allow you to connect the Little Bird speaker system to your Mac or Windows PC for wireless audio streaming of your computers entire music library.

Note: The included IR remote control will operate basic playback functions of your wirelessly connected iPod/iPhone/iPad or computer. Playback functions include - Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Skip Previous/Next.

Spring-Post Speaker Terminals: Both the Little Bird satellite speakers and the Power Bird integrated amp/sub employ spring-post speaker terminals. The spring-post terminals of the Power Bird integrated amp/sub will accept bar wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, and single banana plugs. The spring-post terminals of the Little Bird satellite speakers are very small and can only accept bare wire (up to 14AWG) and pin-connectors; these spring-post terminals are too small for standard banana plugs.

Note: The Focal Little Bird system comes with two 8' lengths of 16AWG speaker wire. You can swap this wire out for high-quality speaker wire from Monster or AudioQuest (sold separately).

Front-Panel Headphone Jack: The Power Bird features a front-panel 3.5mm headphone jack for connecting a set of headphones, so you can privately listen to your music. When a set of headphones are connected, the Little Bird system's speakers are muted.

AC Power: The Power Bird integrated amp/sub includes a detachable 8' AC power cord to connect to a power/surge protector or wall outlet.

Mounting Options

Power Bird Integrated Amp/Sub Mounting: The Power Bird can be used in a flat, vertical, or horizontal position. It can also be fixed to the wall, thanks to the included wall-mount bracket system. It can even go under a piece of furniture as it's flat and compact, so it can be easily hidden, whether horizontally or vertically; or even flat against a wall like a radiator thanks to the supplied fixing kit. You will need to unscrew the Power Bird's four rubber feet and affix the included wall-mount bracket to the bottom of the unit in order to mount the integrated amp/sub to your wall (mounting hardware also included).

Little Bird Satellite Speaker Mounting: Each satellite speaker comes with two table-top stands/wall-mounts to choose from. You can choose from either a circular-base or a tripod-style table-top stand/wall-mount. The table-top stands/wall-mounts can do exactly that; they allow you to either place the speakers on a table, shelf, or desk; or mount the speakers to your wall or ceiling. Mounting hardware is included to wall/ceiling mount the speakers. The table-top stands/wall-mounts features a ball-on-socket joint which allows you to rotate and angle the speaker for the best possible listening position. The table-top stands/wall-mounts have a hollow body, so you can route and conceal your speaker wire. When placed on a table or shelf with the circular-base stands, the Little Bird satellite speakers measure 4.6875" (w) x 8" (h) x 4.6875" (d). Using the tripod-style stands, the Little Bird satellite speakers measure 6.375" (w) x 8" (h) x 6.375" (d). The Little Bird satellite speakers measure 5.0625" from the front of the speaker to the wall, when wall-mounting the speakers.

Note: You must use the included table-top stands/wall-mounts to place the speakers on a flat-surface or to wall mount the speakers. The speakers do not include keyhole slots or threaded inserts for other wall-mount applications.

Optional Floor Stands: Optional floor-stands (091BSB/W, sold separately) are available for the Little Bird satellite speakers. The floor-stands features a hollow steel body for cable routing and a composite base with an iron weight for stability. The floor-stands connect to the satellite speakers via a ball-and-socket joint. The floor-stands are sold in pairs and come in either a black or white finish. The optional floor-stands measure 39" in height and base is 10" in diameter.
