  • Summary: Some word about this product (IMO): Cheap trick, damages and some crease on the cabinet and on the speakers, gluepaths in various volume all around the boxes. Typical budget product. Sound in two words - disco feeling: raised bass and loud treble without refinement. But the soundstage is not bad if you have enough space around these. So if you listen background music in a dark room (sized app. 20 sm) you'll probably neglect the weaknesses.

  • Summary: wow. i cannot believe the sound produced by these smaller floorstanders. everything about these speakers are top notch. definitely worth the price tag and more. i have the polyglass speakers in my car too, focal are just the best all around. the one thing that stands out about these speakers compared to others in the same price range is the breathtaking sound staging and the magnatude of the sound produced.

  • Summary: only had these for a few days, bought to replace my tannoy 611 after reading the reviews on here and on the web, sound good straight out of the box build quality is pretty good, can't say that they are a massive improvment over my old tanns but they probably need to be run in a bit so will get back on that one, floor spikes need to be a bit longer tho had to use the tannoy ones, bought from divine audio on thurs 22 deliverd on tue 27 probably would have been next day if...

Focal Chorus 714v

  • Summary: What a pair of speakers they are. I can hear every instrument and the base is somewhat projected into the room. Big difference from my thumping JBL XLT 320. Clarity, quality, no distortion of sound noted. Only observable difference between the 714 and 714v is the size of the speakers 1cm less in the 714 and the cover.Otherwise they seem identical and yet the V,s are virtually half the price. A true bargain although I am aware they are an older model.

Wonderful value

  • Summary: I bought a pair at this price point after having decided to buy at the full price. A true bargain and what a good all round speaker this is. I listen to a lot of opera and choral works and this is, with suitable amp and cd player just a great sound that never gets in the way of the music.

astonishing value

  • Summary: I've had a pair of these speakers for three years and they just keep sounding better. But I paid £800 for them--at half that price this is a bargain not to be missed! I compared them in the shop with similarly priced Quads and B&Ws and the Focals had much more presence and impact, and more space round the sound. for the past few weeks I've been listening to the CDs from the Living Stereo box, and they sound fantastic.

  • Excerpt: Звучание очень зависит от модели усилителя, звук меняется кардинально. Важен коэффициент демпфирования. Поэтому на Nad будет невнятный звук.
  • Pros: Чистый, прозрачный звук. Колонки нравятся.
  • Cons: Возможно не хватает мягкости звучания. Бас есть, хорошо ощущается, но без излишней глубины.

  • Excerpt: Для напольника бас от 52 Гц это даже не смешно. При прослушивании в салоне подкупают акцентированным фазоинверторным мидбасом (и на АЧХ у них тут нехилый горб), но ниже тишина. Рок слушать невозможно, бочка издает вместо положенного сочного мощного удара какие-то жалкие пуки. Сюда же и любая электронная музыка.
  • Pros: + Прозрачный верх, СЧ на месте. + В комплекте шипы. + Качественные разъемы.
  • Cons: - Оклеены тонкой самоклейкой, выглядит очень дешево. - Слабый бас.

  • Excerpt: Играют в паре с ресивером Marantz-1602 и усилком Parasound A23. Кабели акустика и межблок QED Genesis Spiral (посеребренная медь). Напольные мраморные плиты 5 см. Итог: Звук потрясающий. Детализация превосходная. Верха чистые и сочные. 3D панорама правильная. Все инструменты локализованы в пространстве. Обязательно прогревать перед начальным прослушиванием. В первый день как купил не впечатлили вообще. Думал, выкинул деньги впустую.
  • Pros: Потрясающий детальный, пространственный звук для аудитории до 25 кв. м. Отличный фирменный твитер Молниеносная динамика. Звук очень корректный, четкий, без бубнений. Фазоинвертер фронтальный, но абсолютно портящий картину (никаких паразитных призвуков не обнаружил) Внешний вид V-серии супер. Очень стильно. Похожи на телефон Vertu:)
  • Cons: Внешняя отделка (поливинил) на этом сэкономили (ну да ладно, не главное в акустике). Шпильки в комплекте очень маленькие и неудобные для настройки на плоскости (лучше поменять). Нет BiWire (хотя это особенность схемотехники акустики).
