Summary: It was time to uprade, dramatically our living room system. Was using a very nice Philips combination system for years. Good sound. Main system with Klipsch Cornwalls was in Basement bar. Just not using that area as much and they are too large for upstairs living room.
Summary: You get what you paid for, nice sound + finishing. Doesn't really excel in anything but will work with any type of music. Not as dynamic as PSB B6 or as enchanting as Usher Dancer series but this is the speaker to use for maximum visual impact without breaking the bank and sacrificing overall sound.
Summary: I really enjoy listening to these speakers, I have owned B&W 603, and just wanted bookshelf speakers because my living space is a little smaller. I shopped around listened to B&W 685,686,monitor audio BX2,RX1,RX2, Focal 806v,807v, Paridigm studio 10s,20s.
Summary: One of the best bookshelf speakers I've listened too recently. Listened to B&W 685 and KEF Qi30. I couldn't really find a weakness on the Focal. Good vocals, bass, piano and imaging. I am rather at a loss for words, as I didn't want to like these speakers, but I do like these speakers.
Summary: I purchased these speakers new to replace a pair of Thiel CS1's that I had for many years. I no longer had room for floor standing speakers and needed something bookshelf size. These speakers fill the room with a wonderful full and rich sound that totally belies their size.
Summary: I did lot of reasearch on market searching for speaker which will be easy to drive with my DIY SE tube amp (2x8W). Since my budget was around 700 EUR and I wanted new speaker not secondhand I decided on 806V.
