An all-in-one solution that combines a digital-to-analog converter and two pure class A gain modes for headphones (voltage, hybrid). The Ark is the ideal interface between the different digital sources and your HiFi headphones, allowing you to enjoy your music to the fullest while benefiting from the power of the converter to drive a HiFi home system. Specific settings for each high fidelity Focal headphone (Utopia, Stellia, Clear, Elegia and Elear) are also integrated to make the most of this ultimate combination.
The two AK 4490 balanced premium digital-to-analog converters provide signal processing for PCM formats up to 384 kHz and DSD 256. The analog signal is then routed to two pure Class A amplification channels for a no-compromise solution. The original audio signal is thus fully respected in order to reproduce the slightest nuances of the recording.
Specific settings for each Focal headphone have been integrated into Ark. You can use your headphones with high fidelity (open or closed) with Arche and benefit from an electronic-acoustic combination that, thanks to the company’s own development, offers the sustainable possibility of updating Arche via USB stick. Here you will find the right amplification for your headphones and tonal preferences.
The Ark comes with a solid aluminum headphone stand that takes its inspiration from the Focal logo: Access to the headphones and their storage is thus simple and fast, aesthetic and space-saving.
