Focal Chorus 700 speaker range to be sold exclusively through Richer Sounds

Richer Sounds is to be the exclusive UK stockist of Focal's new 2013 Chorus 700 speaker range, first unveiled last month.

There are two bookshelf and three floorstanding models, plus a centre speaker, with prices from £350 to £1300. All models use Polyglass bass and mid-bass drivers, and AIMg (aluminium-magnesium) inverted tweeter units developed and manufactured in-house at Focal's factory in France.

They're available in walnut, rosewood and 'Black Style' finishes, the latter costing more than the first two standard options.
