Apart the fact that the Focal forget on many of the speakers turn on the standby switch in the box (google the solution out) the speakers have outstanding sound.

The feature I like the most is the space it is able to portray. It has beautiful stereo balance but the depth it has is something! This is is mostly handy while working on voice, which draws in to tiny details and help you keep them while you would just cut them out accidentally when working on less sensitive speakers.

The bass range is wide but I have a feeling that they are not that tight is they might be. But the bass picture is overall really nice, say not artificially juicy as others tend to sound like (to me).

Once more again, the highest value of these speakers is the details and 3D space they draw.

The downside of the speakers is the aforementioned standby mode, which if it works for you it does not let you work on low volume for a long, they turn them self off after 20+minutes or so (it would be handy to have a switch on the box that let us turn the standby on&off).
Another bit frustrating fact is that it has no Db correction on board ./
I would prefer to have all the filter knobs working in steps not linear as they are now.


As all speakers these are also sensitive to placement. I would not put them on table or any close to a desk..
If you do so, you ruin their potential.

Conclusion: Highly addictive speakers.

Love them.

Great Clear Sound
The radiator design mean that you need to place them carefully and experiment. away from the wall or close to the wall.

minus: The radiators mean that care must be taken in handling them. Its not so easy to just pick them up and turn them! this will be discovered when you want to adjust the feet.
The levelling screwed feet underneath are not easy to accurately adjust, Care is needed.
