2-WAY BOOKSHELF LOUDSPEAKER
Described as ‘compact but powerful’, the Chora 806 loudspeaker is part of the new entry level loudspeaker range from Focal. With the asthetics designed by Simon Matthews, the man who has designed Naim casework for many years, there is, certainly in black, a visual synergy with Naim the naim uniti products. They’re an excellent sonic match too.
Cabinets feel solidly built. The outer wraps are all synthetic (three finishes) and the fronts are in a contrasting or complementary colours. Both the wood finishes are quite plausible in either walnut or light oak but, for us, the triumph is the black, which looks just like black anodized brushed alluminium with a gloss front baffle. Speaker grilles are, erm, minimalist!
The 806 boasts a 61/2” (16.5cm) bass/midrange speaker driver, equipped with the exclusive Focal Slatefiber cone. Alongside the TNF Aluminium / Magnesium tweeter with its silky treble, the “slate” colour of the speaker driver makes it an unusual, attractive yet high-performance loudspeaker.
This bookshelf speaker is considered ideal for rooms of up to 215ft² (20m²).
Dimensions are 43 cm high, 21 cm wide and 26 cm deep.
