Focal Dimension

To put it succinctly, the Focal Dimension is an elegant product with some inelegant design elements. Does this mean I don't recommend it? Not at all--I'm simply trying to make it clear that it's designed for a specific type of setup; and, if you're...

GLL Imagio IC100

I'm always skeptical of branding with "iThis" and "iThat" to ride Apple coat tails, but these are great for cleaning my iPad, Kindle Fire and smartphone. The small packets mean these never dry out, I like the "sheets in a can" types that seem so...

Focal CMS 65

The clarity is almost unreal. I'm hearing songs for the first time thatI've listened to for 20 years. True reference quality.

Focal DOME 5.1

I purchased this system from Creative Audio. In fact I bought no less than 3 of their 5.1 Focal Dome bundles that came with all connecting cables (1 optical cable, 1 subwoofer cable, 2 HDMI cables (1 and 3 meters) as well as 30 meters of speaker cables...

Focal BIRD PACK 2.1

REMOTE CONTROL The Bird Pack 2.1 remote control was sleek, smart and will be an instant hit with you. It has just the right amount of buttons in it and the rest of the space on the remote control simply adds to its charm and overall appearance. All the...

Focal Diablo Utopia

The blessing of having owned many of the best loudspeakers the world has known has been a lot of fun. The fact that I haven't owned Focals is somewhat of a head-scratcher. They belong in the discussion with the likes of Bowers & Wilkins, Revel, Wilson...

Focal BIRD

The Focal Bird PAK 2.1 system is a smooth-sounding little all-in-one system; with an invisible subwoofer. It sounds much smoother than Bose systems, and is much better suited to good and classical music. While most Bose systems are designed designed to...

Focal JMlab XS Book

Don't waste your money -- total garbage. Pony up a hundred or so more and buy a pair of Vanatoo powered speakers -- unbelievable sound, light years beyond the Focals, and the people who own the company (aka the designers) are totally cool and deserving...

Focal JMlab Chorus

Classy drive units and an effective, if rather prosaically finished enclosure delivers an impressively neutral tonality with little trace of boxiness. Good dynamic behaviour for a speaker of its price

Focal Chorus 726V

Compact and realistically priced, the Chorus 726V is a good all-round performer. Although it gets a little edgy when driven hard, it makes up for this with superior dynamic expression and tension

Focal CMS 50

Although a bit large relative to your average desktop computer speakers, the CMS 50's provide a level of musicality 'designed for the computer' speakers can't deliver. I've only run them for 10 hours or so and they're still breaking in, but I'm...

Focal Chorus 705

The W cone treatment has brought some of the qualities associated with Focal’s high-end models down to a competitive price in the 816 WSE. You will have a hard job finding a more enjoyable floorstander at the price

Focal Electra 1038 BE

There's no denying that the Focal Electra 1038Be floor-standing loudspeaker, at $12,495 per pair, is expensive. For many, or perhaps most, it's even outrageous. So why do I consider it to be somewhat of a bargain? Simple: if it were my money and I was...

Focal CMS 40

These monitor speakers ought to be of interest to mobile home studio owners or people who have a very small room to play or mix music. Following the Focal CMS 65 and CMS 50, the CMS 40 is even smaller but not less appealing...

Background: I came across these by accident in a store while looking for some other speaker models. The store had only one pair left, which were floor samples. This older version is discontinued, and a slightly different and new version is out....

Focal Profile 918

Unlike most active subwoofers, the back panel of the SW908 is nearly devoid of switches and knobs. You'll find only stereo RCA inputs for a two-channel setup and a single LFE input (also RCA) for a home theater. While there are two other RCA...
