Focal Electra 1008 Be - Dark Walnut w/Focal Stands - Beryllium Tweeters


The Focal Electra 1008 Be utilizes one of our favorite tweeters made of actual *beryllium* - also found in the crazy expensive top-of-the-line speakers from Focal.

Meant for a mid to small size room, the 1008 Be is a superb performer and hard to beat at any price.

We've never seen this particular wood finish in our shop, but it sure got attention as it's absolutely stunning in person. Probably due to Focal's 11-coat varnish process!

Condition is near perfect with no signs of use or abuse.

Tested thoroughly in our lab and listening room and they're working perfect.

With an MSRP of over $5000 - that's without the special matching Focal stands - this is a great value considering the condition.

* Included with your purchase is the pair of Focal speakers, a matching pair of Focal High Gloss "S 1000" speaker stands, and the speaker front grilles (two per speaker). The stands do not currently have any spikes attached, but we may be able to include a basic replacement set depending on your flooring situation.
