Summary: These monitors look very well-built and the sound is good when everything is working properly and set up well. But the electronics were the cause of recurring problems and much wasted time (and money). I'm afraid to say I can't recommend them based on my experience of annoying faults.
Summary: I have been using these audio monitors for almost two months and I am very happy with them. After unpacking them from boxes they played much better than anything I had so far but it was nothing in comparison how they started to play after break-in period!!
Summary: These monitors were an upgrade from some KRK's from my local shop. Instantly, I could hear what was really going on from 100-500hz...my KRK's made that area just boomy and indistinct. The imaging on these is great. I can pinpoint even the most minor of panning as I move something around the mix.
Summary: I bought these from Sweetwater to replace the Advents I bought here several years ago (see the review.) I know the name Focal from traditional home stereo. They are still very well made in France, not CHINA.
Summary: In der Preisklasse (und sicherlich auch etwas darüber) sind diese Monitore wirklich das Beste das ich bis jetzt gehört habe! Am beeindruckendsten ist zum einen die wirklich erstaunlich gute Basswiedergabe (ohne zusätzlichen Sub) und zum anderen die großartige Tiefenstaffelung dieser Boxen!
