Couldn’t be happier. Inspired by the performance of my C3XP, I bought the Reference to replace my Focal Arche in my primary system. In an initial A/B test compared to the already stellar C3XP, I was thrilled to verify that the Reference has an even bigger and more improved sound over the Performance. An incredible upgrade to my system. I am also impressed and very appreciative of the communication from Dennis when I had a question about choosing between the gain settings for my headphones. Likewise working with your dealer, Bloom Audio, has been a wonderful experience in every way.
