3-WAY FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKER
The Chora 826 loudspeaker is the flagship 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 a walnut-like dark wood or oak-like light wood 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 Chora 826 bass-reflex loudspeaker is the embodiment of an accessible high-fidelity solution for a complete listening pleasure. Equipped with the exclusive Slatefiber cone developed and manufactured at the Focal site in France, the speaker drivers deliver balanced and precise midranges and perfectly articulated bass; leaving you to enjoy a big, full and generous sound. In addition, the presence of an aerodynamic front port eliminates distortion and gives more impact in the bass.
Its sleek, modern design combined with your choice of finish, and the tilted stand for a better sound image, make Chora 826 ideal for large rooms.
