The new Focal Electra 1008, 1028, and 1038 Be II loudspeakers

The Electra Be II represent a remarkable fruition of technology and materials. Back in 2004, with the advent of JM Labs' 25th anniversary, the company released a limited edition of three special Electra-based speakers designed to incorporate the groundbreaking Berylium tweeter previously only available in their Utopia series. The 25th Anniversary Edition Electra Bes were an immediate sensation and the entire production run quickly sold out. Based on that success, the engineers went back to the drawing board and revisited the concept with the intent of an even more refined, more stylish, and even more innovative speaker they could put into regular production. The astounding two-way 1008 along with the 1028 and 1038 floorstanding loudspeakers are the evolutionary heirs to this legacy. Focals famous "W" sandwich cones have undergone extensive improvements, as has the manufacturing and design of their famous Beryllium tweeter. What this all boils down to is this: Short of the Utopia EM line, these speakers have provided us with the most lifelike listening experience we've yet encountered. Imaging is spacious and finely delineated, harmonic structure is rich and natural, and the dynamic range is explosive (when the material demands it) and practically limitless. Even with the smaller "bookshelf"-type monitor 1008 the musical experience is compelling. Like all of Focals offerings, the Electra 1000 Be speakers are amplifier-friendly and efficient as well as room-friendly. These speakers get our highest recommendation.
