Summary: Out of the box,these are very bright,and unforgiving towards bad recordings on the higher frequencies,this soon will pass.These take about a month to break in for an average user,so be patient,the ringing and hissing in the treble will go away,and you will have something MOST all metal tweeters DO NOT have,smooth,detailed,extended highs with out being too forward.
Summary: There are many pro reviews on these speakers, including the very detailed and technical one from Stereophile. All the reviews are correct: the tweeters are exquisite. I have owned many brands of speakers in the past, including Audio Concept speaker kits, AR, JBL, Alexis studio monitors, Boston Acoustics, Mission, Polk, Kilpsch Reference, etc. The Focal tweeters are by far much more revealing than any of the above.
Summary: FANTASTIC SPEAKERS FOR THE PRICE…….TWEETER VERY BRIGHT SOUNDING…..GOOD QUALITY RECORDINGS SHINE THROUGH…….SOUNDSTAGE EXCELLENT……..I WAS GOING TO BUY WHARFEDALE 10.2'S , I'M GLAD I DID NOT…..THE FOCAL 807V'S SOUND MUCH BIGGER ……..
Summary: The Chorus 807V replaced tower speakers costing significantly more money. The sound quality is simply stunning. The resolution on Blu-ray audio discs is amazing. The build quality and appearance is first rate. In short the price vs. performance ratio is unbeatable! Highly recommended!!
