How much does it cost?800 usd? Im most interested in the binaural DSP effect it has. How it is? :) If someone just could make an hardware item with stereo to binaural processing or something similar to Smyth Realiser,but at a consumer level, it would be outstanding!
Focus 1 cost was 800 USD, Focus 2 cost is 456 USD.

The binaural processor in Focus 1 was more pronounced but it made more changes to the sound (frequency characteristics). Binaural in Focus 2 is less pronounced but has no influence on the frequency characteristics and is more popular among the listeners now.

Binaural makes the sound go out of your head so that the sounds surround you. It also gives instruments more holographic feeling as if you can see them with closed eyes more clearly. I listen to headphones only in binaural mode and turn it off when I listen speakers.

Focus 2 pairs well with LCD-2C and HD600.

Sorry, I have not tried any other binaural or crossfeed solutions.

As to the Norway, I know a guy in Trondheim who's waiting for his Focus 2 now. I can give you his contacts if you're interested.
