“ I have been using Focal monitors exclusively for well over 10 years now and they have become an indispensable part of my everyday workflow. So when it came time to move up to a bigger monitor I was super excited to try the Trio11 Be in my new studio. They are everything I have come to rely upon with Focal monitors and then some. From the full frequency response and huge soundstage to the ingenious Focus Mode these beautiful new speakers cover all the bases for me.”

“ The Focal Trio11 BE monitors are a perfect combination of midfield studio speakers, with the precision of high frequency in the upper midrange that a mastering studio requires. But, with the low end and the warmth of expensive HIFI speakers. They are extremely smooth and I’m able to work long hours with no fatigue to my ears. They are a perfect representation for modern dance music.”
