A great update on my favorite Solo 6 monitors.
Anonymous 09.11.2022
I used Solo 6 Be monitors for a long time. I was very happy with them.
Not so long ago I moved to another country and when the question arose about buying monitors I did not even think twice and took the new Solo 6.

I was very surprised how Focal improved their product:
less resonance at low frequencies, new beryllium tweeter sounded less harsh, mid frequencies became much clearer too, finally they added mesh in tweeter (I had some experience with damaged tweeter in previous generation).

On the negative side:
I don't like auto-standby mode, very slow response, and sometimes, when something is playing at low volume, I even have to turn volume knob to turn monitors back on.
Focus mode - I don't really understand what it's for, it's not a good substitute for real s**t control, and in order to turn it on you need to buy a pedal as well...

All in all, I am very happy with this purchase.
If you don't like newfangled "DSP monitors" and you need real analog sound - I recommend these monitors for your consideration.

Great professional studio monitors
aintitfun 12.08.2022
These are truly great monitors. They need a little burn-in period, first the tweeter highs are a little too hard on the ear. After 2-3 hours of playing music it is already much better, Focal recommends 40 hours of burn-in period before any critical listening.
I replaced my older Focal Shape 65 monitors which were already very nice loudspeakers. There are more detail and a more 'pro' feeling in the Solo6 monitors. I can highly recommend it as an upgrade.

Überzeugendes Gesamtpaket für das Monitoring im Nahfeld
Augstnuß 15.04.2023
Die Aufgabe war für ein Budget von 3.000€ die besten Nahfeldmonitore (Hörabstand 1m) aus dem Angebot von Thomann zu finden. Nach zwei Fehlkäufen bei anderen Händlern habe ich mich auf den Weg nach Treppendorf gemacht, um erst zu hören und dann zu kaufen.
Dank der sehr guten Beratung und der Möglichkeit, alle meine Kandidaten hören zu können fiel meine Wahl am Ende auf die Focal Solo6. Hier meine (subjektiven) Gründe, warum die Solo6 unter diesen Rahmenbedingungen (3.000€, 1m Abstand) die beste Wahl sind:
- Der beste Hochtöner in dieser Klasse, fast so "seidig" wie eine Gewebekalotte und aber dabei präzise wie Metallkalotten eben sein können.
- Der Hochtöner aus Beryllium ist durch ein Gitter gut geschützt.
- Kein weiterer DSP und Wandler im Signalweg, die sich negativ auf die Detailauflösung auswirken können.
- Sehr gute Stereoabbildung. Eine Messung zeigt, dass die beiden Hochtöner exakt den gleichen Frequenzgang haben. Focal hat also die Fertigungsqualität gut im Griff.
- Gut brauchbarer "Focus"-Mode. Man spart sich ein zweites Paar Vergleichslautsprecher (Breitbänder).
- Frei von größeren Schwächen. Am ehesten stören mich noch die Artefakte vom Baßreflexkanal, aber das haben aus meiner Sicht nun mal alle Lautsprecher mit einem solchen Kanal. (99% aller Lautsprecher hier fallen in diese Kategorie.)
Fazit: Ein hervorragender Monitor, der bei aller Präzision immer noch angenehm klingt, ohne auf der anderen Seite "schön" zu färben.
Wichtig noch: Es braucht hochwertige Lautsprecherständer, die Hochtöner müssen auf Ohrhöhe sein und ein Set IsoAcoustics ISO-Pucks ist Pflicht.
