Computers Unlimited is bringing Focal’s Bird range to Britain for the first time. The “stylish, flexible” systems from the French audio manufacturer have already won praise for their design and performance from reviewers and customers in France, the US and beyond.

Bird is three 2.1 systems based around Power Bird, a central unit featuring 2x35W amplification, wired and wireless connectivity, and the hidden bass boost of a six-inch, 80W subwoofer.

The Power Bird can be used in flat, vertical or horizontal positions. It can be hung on the wall – aided by its integrated Polyfix mounting system – or even slipped under a sofa. It’s paired with three sizes of speaker: Little Bird, Bird and Super Bird; these too are highly flexible about where they sit.

“Focal has designed the Bird 2.1 Systems to offer style and simplicity. For example, every Bird system supports wireless audio, with Focal giving users the choice of Kleer  – built into Power Bird – or aptX Bluetooth connectivity via an optional receiver module. Apple AirPlay can also be used, by connecting an AirPort Express to the Power Bird’s optical input. ”

Both Kleer and Bluetooth solutions need no wi-fi network. Kleer supports uncompressed audio: users just add a tiny Focal USB or iTransmitter dongle to their computer or Apple iPad/iPhone. Focal’s Universal aptX Bluetooth receiver opens up wireless audio to users of any Bluetooth-compatible smartphone, tablet or computer, including the latest aptX-equipped Android devices.
