“BEST VALUE FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKER”!
The EISA jury, bringing together the best in international multimedia press (over 61 magazines across 29 countries) has voted Chora 826 “Best Value Floorstanding Loudspeaker”. At Focal, we are incredibly proud to receive this award, just after being re-titled Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV, Living Heritage Company) for a further 5 years by the French State. These awards honour Focal’s innovation and unique know-how, as well as the quality of its product lines.
“Drawing on its extensive expertise, from the manufacture of drive units to final assembly, Focal has developed an affordable floorstander able to sound great on demonstration and in the home. At the heart of the Chora 826 is a new ‘Slatefibre’ driver, for speed and bass extension, and the speaker has a sound that’ll make you want to keep on listening, with both bass weight, treble clarity and sparkle. It’s also easy to set up and position, will work with modest amplification, and sounds good in almost any room. However you look at it, this speaker offers a lot of performance for the money.”
CHORA 826: “BEST VALUE FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKER 2020/2021”
Made in France at the Focal workshops, the Chora 826 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker offers outstanding performance, quality design and affordability for everyone to step into the High-Fidelity world.
The sound is full and balanced thanks to the speaker drivers equipped with the Slate Fiber cone. This exclusive and unprecedented Focal technology provides balanced mid ranges, articulated bass and plenty of dynamics. The treble is mellow and precise thanks to the Aluminium/Magnesium TNF tweeter, another Focal technology. Finally, the positioning of this bass-reflex loudspeaker on a tilted stand has the effect of centring the soundstage more on the listener (Time Alignment).
With its modern finishes and the slate colour of its Slate Fiber cone, Chora 826 is the designer loudspeaker that reveals High-Fidelity at the best price.
This loudspeaker is part of the Chora range, which includes the Chora 826-D 4-way Dolby Atmos enabled speaker for an immersive Home Cinema experience, the Chora 816 floorstanding loudspeaker, the Chora 806 bookshelf loudspeaker, and the Chora Center and Chora Surround loudspeakers to add centre, side and rear channels to its installation.
