Focal Chorus 706V review


Does size matter? This speaker is significantly larger than most

Great drivers ; Good sound ; No boxiness

Design may not suit all tastes ; Sound is heavy if too close to a wall

I have the new model 706s which look much better and sound fantastic.They are one of the most neutral speakers I have heard. The top to bottom coherance is very smooth with excellent detail. I use these in my master bedroom and are driven by a Carver...

Perhaps the best standmount speaker you can buy in its (under $500/pair) price class! I usually prefer floorstanders, but these were purchased for my bedroom system where size & (adjustable via stands) height is more important than bass extension. No...

Nicely detailed yet smooth & sweet, with no harsh treble. And just enough bass extension that a sub isn't an absolute must, though a good sub (like my Rel Strata III in my main system) can make a nice improvement. They're also quite attractive (in...

Finish, design (Calvados looks pretty), neutral sound, comfortable listening, non-fatiguing, good resolution

Didn't appreciate the 706's sound at first because it sounded thin and harsh. However, after almost two months of breakin these speakers will perform to no dissatisfaction. I auditioned the 705's and love them, and purchased the 706's so to handle...

I shopped everything in this class from B&W to Linn to Paradigm, and nothing came close to the level of performance that these speakers come to. I would, and do, recommend these to anyone looking for a bargain speaker.
