Focal Chorus 705V


Focal is France's leading hi-fi speaker manufacturer, and if the name isn't immediately familiar, that's because its complete loudspeaker systems were called JMLab up until 2004.

Smooth and unruffled sound

Limited bass weight and dynamic tension

Works well close to a wall, and has a superior quality tweeter, but there are some down-sides

Treble/high frequencies are detailed, clear and without harshness or sibilance. Smooth mids. Rich upper bass (also a potential weakness). Enough bass reach for adequately imparting the musical message with most music
