Great performing bookshelf speakers

  • Summary: This is my first go at purchasing Focal speakers. If used in the proper recommended space, these bookshelf speakers provide a great listening experience.

Surprising Value

  • Summary: Just received these and setup on a desktop to be used as computer speakers, powered by a Sony ES Receiver, sourced from a PCI HT Omega Claro halo XT sound card. My immediate reaction is WOW! these French monitors are surprisingly detailed, articulate and engaging. Despite sitting close, the sound stage is wide but also strikingly deep.
  • Pros: High-end is exquisite, great overall frequency response, huge sound stage, beautiful finish for the price.
  • Cons: No feet or isolation on the bottom, single terminal port (not bi-wireable), front grille has mounting pegs & holes (not magnetic like some higher end speakers)

Focal Chorus 705

  • Summary: Shopping with Crutchfield is a really smooth and nice experience, delivery on time with great product. After 2-3 weeks "burn in", the Focal Chorus 705 turns to be better and better, clarity and beautiful treble. I should also point it out if they are used as front bookshelf speakers, the bass is nice but not powerful enough. I use them for back surrounding so it serves the purpose perfectly fine!

Great sounding speakers

Ravinder Gill, Amazon
15 September 2009
  • Summary: Replaced my old Definitive technology speakers with these. I am using them as my surround speakers on Marantz SR 7008 system and love the sound that they are producing. The mids and highs come out so beautifully that sometimes I wonder if thAt sound is coming from somewhere else or from speakers. Just amazing. Will absolutely recommend it to anyone.
