A.bsolument & Focal

The meeting of two exceptional skills

When two brands with a passion for music meet, they create unique vintage Bluetooth radios with world-class speakers.

On the one hand : A.bsolutely, the very first brand in the world to offer the modernization service of vintage radios and old TSF radios. Leader in its field since 2015.

On the other hand : FocalFocal, a famous French brand that is one of the world leaders in the manufacture of high-end hi-fi solutions. Its expertise and know-how "made in France" have been recognised for over 40 years.

To modernise a radio, you need to bring together several ingredients: an audio amplifier, micro components and, above all, a loudspeaker. It is for this last very important "ingredient" that A.bsolument called on Focal. "Our respective brands, both based in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, embody and defend a number of common values. They stand for French know-how, impeccable quality and sustainable craftsmanship, and an immense passion for music. And more than that, they aim for the same ultimate goal: the satisfaction of all their customers. In 2015, when Arthur, founder of A.bsolument, first met with Focal's sales management, everything was still to be done.

"Focal suggested a lot of changes, standards, selected components, manufacturing processes etc. Clearly: we had to structure our company before we could work with Focal. In short: we had to structure our company before we could claim to work with Focal.

It is in September 2018 that the Saint-Etienne-based brand will give its approval, offering its Focal Inside label , with three levels of finishes: Authentic, Signature and Infinity. Kits in which advanced technologies are found for ever more sound performance.

"It was obvious that our paths would cross one day.

A.bsolument is labelled Focal Inside, which means that all the modernised vintage Bluetooth radios are equipped with Focal speakers. A real plus for the sound quality of these radios and the listening quality offered to listeners, from amateurs to music fans...
