Focal Dome 5.1 channel Subwoofer/Satellite Speaker System

About.com
26 April 2013
  • Summary: If you close your eyes while listening to the Focal Dome system, it's easy to imagine you're listening to larger speakers. A moderately powered receiver with 25-100 watts per channel can easily power the system, the satellites take very little space and they can be placed almost anywhere, on a shelf, stand or mounted to the wall or ceiling.

Focal Dôme 5.1

What Hi-Fi?
12 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Focal ’s nicely rounded Dôme 5.1 was £1500 when we first tested it two years ago, but has recently had a very handy £500 sliced off its price, bringing it into line with rivals such as the Q Acoustics 7000i, KEF E305 and B&W MT-50 . Even before you hear it in action you get the feeling that every single penny is fully justified. The black lacquer finish combined with the die-cast aluminium surrounds gives the speakers a premium look and feel.
  • Pros: Superb build quality, Impressive musicality and insight, Powerful, punchy bass, Lower price
  • Cons: Soundstage could be wider

Focal JMlab Dôme 5.1 Speaker System

CANADA HiFi
31 January 2011
  • Conclusion: I’ve listened to many satellite and subwoofer speaker systems over the last few years and few would be able to match the performance of the Focal JMlab Dômes. The majority of the less expensive speakers I’ve heard sounded downright tiny. Other, more expensive sets often focused more attention on aesthetics rather than sound. I can confidently say that I thoroughly enjoyed these speakers for both movie watching and music.

Focal JMlab Dome 5.1 System

TechRadar UK
17 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Focal JMlab is one of Europe's leading hi-fi manufacturers and is best known in the field of larger loudspeakers, its expertise with the Sib & Cub fashion-centric, compact system shows it can also dabble with the latter. And that skill has now been used to craft a hugely stylish successor, dubbed Dome.

  • Summary: Havde det ikke være for den saftige prisseddel sammen med bassen, som ligger lige under Kefs, havde Focal Dôme 5.1 stået øverst på sejrsskamlen. Nu må de nøjes med en hæderfuld andenplads, hvilket ikke er at foragte – med tanke på, at det i denne test ikke udelukkende handler om lyd, men også udseende, og Focal har virkelig begge dele.
  • Pros: Opløst diskant, Pæne, Fleksible
  • Cons: Dyre, Bassen

  • Summary: No to Focal wyciął niezły numer! Przy Utopiach i Electrach Dôme wyglądają jak elektryczny samochodzik wielkości Smarta noszący dumną nazwę Volvo. Ale odkąd pojawił się Aston Martin Cygnet, nie powinno dziwić już nic, nawet robot z „Gwiezdnych wojen” z logiem Focala na piersi.

  • Conclusion: Das Dome 5.1-Set ist das Beste, was ich in dieser Produktkategorie kenne. Klare Konsequenz ist die »Referenz«-Auszeichnung. In Anbetracht der wirklich erstaunlich guten Tonalität und der Abstrahlcharakteristik, die der einer Punktschallquelle nahe kommt, überzeugt das Set vor allem dadurch, dass man es kaum als »Lautsprecher« wahrnimmt. Sowohl Musik als auch Filmton werden mit dem französischen Sextett zu einem wahren Genuss.
