If you've been considering Focal's great-sounding XS 2.1 multimedia speakers, but have been waiting to take the plunge, this factory-refurbished system may just hit the sweet spot. Focal's so confident you'll enjoy it just as much as a brand new system, they're including their full two-year warranty.
Looking for multimedia speakers that can deliver high-performance sound from your iPod, iPhone, or computer? Check out the Focal XS 2.1 multimedia sound system. This advanced audio system features two desktop speakers and a powered subwoofer you can place on the floor.
Simple setup via a USB connection
The system connects to your computer through a standard USB cable. This connection bypasses the PC's sound card and feeds the signal to Focal's advanced Burr-Brown digital-to-analog converter, which produces highly accurate, richly detailed sound.
Integrated iPod and iPhone dock
An iPod dock built into the base of one of the speaker stands helps you avoid desktop clutter. Simply dock your player and enjoy clear, natural sound with your favorite tunes. The Focal XS also charges your iPod, and a switch on the back of the docking base lets you sync your player with your computer.
Quality construction for optimal performance
Three separate built-in amps power the system — one each for the left and right speakers, and a third for the subwoofer. This ensures optimal responsiveness from each speaker. Mylar dome tweeters reproduce clear highs, while 3" woofers handle the midrange frequencies. A 6-1/2" powered subwoofer deliver full, rich bass.
Convenient remote control operation
Use the system's compact remote to control volume, as well as basic commands on your iPod, such as play, pause, skip and start. And you can attach the magnetized remote to either of the anodized aluminum speaker stands for quick access when not in use.
30-pin dock connector
The XS 2.1 has a 30-pin dock connector, so you can use it with most docking iPods and iPhones. For 2012 and newer models that use a Lightning connector — such as the iPhone 5®, 7th generation iPod nano® and 4th generation iPod touch — you'll need a 30-pin-to-Lightning adapter (available separately).
From the review The Focal XS 2.1 Multimedia Sound System delivers audio goodness
"If you're working on a computer for long periods of time (and who isn't these days?) the Focal XS can deliver a listening experience that rivals a good home audio system. When I was sitting in that sweet spot typing away on my laptop, the Focal XS 2.1 Multimedia System's soundscape really made my stored music come alive."
