Focal Dimension review

 

Focal packs highly musical and powerful sound into the versatile (if quirky) Dimension sound bar and sub.

While Focal’s Dimension is no substitute for a good multichannel surround system it does a wonderful job of delivering high-fidelity sound in smaller spaces where multiple speakers simply aren’t an option – that goes double if musicality is a critical...

Focal Dimension Review: A Fantastic Sounding 5.1 Soundbar System

 

While not everyone has the space or setup for a full theatre surround sound system, that doesn't mean they should have to go without and that's where soundbar systems come in. Our Focal Dimension review takes a look at a 5-channel soundbar system with...

Easy to set up, great sound. Sleek looking soundbar. Sub doubles as a TV stand

Can be pricey. If your TV doesn't support ARC you'll have to get an HDMI hub as well

If you're looking for a home theatre solution without having to purchase a receiver and a bunch of speakers, the Focal Dimension Soundbar and Dimension Sub are a definite contender, especially if you don't have a lot of space.

Focal Dimension Soundbar and Subwoofer Reviewed

 

Sean Killebrew reviews Focal's 450-watt, five-channel Dimension soundbar and its optional passive subwoofer, a combination that presents a few setup challenges but delivers big on performance.

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...

Focal Dimension review

 

An impressive-sounding soundbar with a few setup faux-pas

The Focal Dimension offers excellent sound, bass response and imaging, but it requires planning to fit into your home theater setup.

Focal Dimension/Sub

 

Focal, with its fine heritage in high-end speaker design, made the decision to join the soundbar club probably after it saw how successful Bose and B&W were doing at the premium end of the market. But neither the Bose Cinemate 1SR or B&W Panorama 2...

Well crafted, powerful sound with dynamism and clarity; good Bluetooth music playback; simple to use

Heavy, dominating appearance; low HDMI count; no AirPlay or USB media playback

Focal Dimension

 

Add some finesse and firepower to movies with Focal's striking soundbar

Weighty bass output ; Clear detail and exciting tone ; Striking design and superb build quality

Not enough HDMI inputs ; Bluetooth not integrated ; Low-quality remote

Focal’s beautifully built soundbar delivers gobsmacking sound quality, but the single HDMI and optional Bluetooth are disappointing at this price.

Focal Dimension review

 

Dimension is a bold move for Focal but it's paid off. A high-end, high-quality soundbar

Striking design Finessed, exciting sound Impressive bass weight Great with music

Cramped input panel can make things fiddly Cheap remote

Jumping straight in at the deep end with a premium soundbar is a bold move, but Focal’s Dimension delivers the goods in spectacular style.

Focal Dimension soundbar review

 

Meet the Focal Dimension soundbar, a high-end piece of audio equipment from the French manufacturer that packs 5.1 sound into a slender frame, and boasts a hefty subwoofer to go with it. Priced around £800, plus an extra £320 for the subwoofer, is it...

Soundbars are in right now, providing an easy way to add some quality cinema-style sound to your living room in one easy package, but with so many on offer it's hard to pinpoint the one for you. The Focal Dimension caters for the high-end soundbar...

While we're big fans of the Dimension's top-notch sound quality, it does have a few issues. For starters, the back panel of the soundbar is rather small, packing in only two HDMI ports (one links up to the ARC (Audio Return Channel) on your TV, if you...

The Focal Dimension offers almost unparalleled sound quality, booming bass (even without the subwoofer) and high-end looks, but it’s let down by a severe lack of ports, useless cable management, a cheap remote and an often fiddly touch panel. If you...

Focal has reinvented the soundbar and subwoofer combination with the Dimension, and in sonic performance terms, it’s a great success.
