  1. Second in line after Eagleeyes please, any time is fine with me. Thank you.
  2. I can't agree more - Focal is among few brands that has high-quality design and build of their speakers consistent from flagship to entry models. I find my Focal speakers versatile: music, HT, or even karaoke - they just perform amazingly well with great dynamics for everything I throw at them. As for the sound, I find my Focal speakers revealing with neutral mid range, warm bass, and good depth if complemented by a good sub. I've heard quite often people saying that Focal speakers are not quite forgiving for bad recordings, but good recordings will shine. Probably true - I've recently come across Boyce Avenue music on Youtube. Unbelievably real - the timbre of an acoustic guitar is faithfully played, the voice is warm and rich, and most of all it is the sound of the Kawai piano that is exactly what I expect: a full tone with defined rhythm on lower keys - the distinct characteristic of a low-tension string design and Japanese spruce soundboards that I'm used to with my Kawai piano. It is the kind of sound not only to be heard but also to be felt. I've never been satisfied with piano sound coming from a speaker before before until now. Faithful - may be the best word I can say about Focal sound.
  3. That sounds like a good approach. I've heard quite often about minidsp too. Quite tempted to get one. May I ask where you ordered it from?
  4. I totally agree, for the music that I listen to, a sub will definitely enhance the bass of my Focal speakers. I guess a pair of subs like what you have will be even better.
  5. It is interesting to know there is a thread for Focal owners. Hi to all. Like some of you, I currently have a pair of the Chorus 826W floorstanders. I first saw them on Stereophile - could not resist their charm. They have been serving me very well. Would like to hear from you what you like about your Focal speakers?
  6. It is great to know, thank you audiodyna. Hope you enjoy your time now. I live in Shelley, if that is close to you. What softwares are you interested, if you don't mind me asking?
  7. Hi all, great to be a member of this great community. My name is Sonny and this is my first post. Hope that I will learn a lot from you and share with you my interest in sound, music, and HiFi gears. I enjoy few genres of music: classical, jazz, and pop music. I also play a bit of piano. I have a background in engineering so I am also interested in the engineering aspect of the reproduction of sound. I have a simple system setup consisting of a pair of Focal 826W floorstanders and an SVS SB12-NSD subwoofer. I would love to meet with SNA members living locally for a coffee chat or going around to audition and learn speakers and hifi equipment. Cheers, Sonny
