The blue is awesome.

For anyone in northern Colorado, the Boulder ListenUp location has a pair of the blue Maestro Utopia III Evos available to listen to connected to a pair of Levinson 536 monoblocks connected to a Levinson 526 preamp.

New Maestro Evo's in the house! Have had them about 3 weeks. After breaking them in somewhat, I notice major improvements over the Scala v2 -- in the bass obviously but also in the midrange -- super smooth and super musical sounding.

They look great in black, I even like the tweeter covers which look awesome in person. Here's a pic:

They look great. I can imagine how good they sound.

So epic. I've adored the Utopia line for as long as I can remember. The midrange on the Frenchies is nothing short of sublime.

Phunge - congrats on the new Focals, they look stunning! I do love the blue color although I guess you would have to have matching decor to really have them fit in.

Thanks! I wanted to stick with black, as I already have the matching center channel and kept the black Scala V2 for rear channels in my 5.1 setup.

I heard these next to some Sonus Faber Il Cremonese. While I preferred the SF’s (I tend to always prefer SF’s ), the Focals were just a joy to listen to.

Congrats!!!
