I was listening to a pair of the Focal Chorus 726V floor standing speakers in the store the other day and almost forgot that I was listening to speakers. I had to learn more about them.
They sound great due to the technology that Focal has developed since their inception. All their speakers (even the ones for $495/pair) use drivers that are built by them for them, not some other companies’ parts. They also make their own cabinets unlike most companies. This allows them to know exactly what you will get with each speaker that leaves their factory. This translates into transparent speakers that almost disappear when listening.
Call an audio specialist at the store for more information or stop by and listen for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
