New Focal Chorus 714

As I was saying in another topic - Amplifier needed (Arcam FMJ A19, Roksan Kandy K2...) - I have received my new Focal Chorus 714 before the CDP and the amp arrived, so I used my present setup (Technics SL1200MK2 with Marantz PM5004). The sound is amazing, the bass fills the room, the middle is smooth and the treble is just the way I like it.

As I saw this http://www.whathifi.com/news/focal-chorus-700-speaker-range-on-sale-from-may, I thought it would be interesting to hear your opinion (much more profi than mine, I'm sure) on this speakers and maybe some comparisons with other similar speakers.

RE: New Focal Chorus 714

The Focals I've heard are fabulous. Indeed do work best with Arcam, Creek, Roksan, Marantz....

Not aquainted with the new Focal range, assuming, of course, this is the upgraded version of the 'V' speakers. Should have years of pleasure. Smile

RE: New Focal Chorus 714

Been having a play with the 705s for a forthcoming Gramo review, and all I've heard so far has been very impressive.

RE: New Focal Chorus 714

I am not a specialist and I don't have any significant experience with various setups. I have just started my HIFI way.

But I my ears can recognize good music and quality sounds. This Focals I have (714) make me look to the ceiling and smile.

@PP? Smile

RE: New Focal Chorus 714

I just read a review on a dutch site, they reviewed the Focal Chorus 716. They were very, very positive about this speaker.

Can't wait to read some more reviews about these new series.

RE: New Focal Chorus 714

why are they so expensive at Richer Sounds?

Darty in Calais have them at 600 euros, around £480 - not the £8-900 at Richer
