The top end was consistently nimble, delicate, detailed, and extended ... And oh, that sublime midrange. I’ve now listened to three different Focal loudspeakers at home, and they share a strong family resemblance in the midrange--a palpable, detailed, reach-out-and-touch-it presence. Complementing this midrange presence and liveliness were a rich tonality and body that revealed in the sound a sense of weight and, at times, warmth.

The Chora 806 speakers provide an open and emotionally-engaging window to the music. These are incredible speakers for someone just getting into the hifi game, and more than worthy of one of our Exceptional Value Awards for 2020.

A superlative entry in a crowded price bracket. It sounds fantastic with a transparent, neutral tonality, a wide soundstage, and dynamics to get your toes tapping.

2-WAY BOOKSHELF LOUDSPEAKER

The Chora 806 loudspeaker showcases meticulous manufacturing and design. Let yourself be transported by the delightful, dynamic musical quality emitted by its 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 attractive yet high-performance solution.

The surround linking the dome to its stand uses a memory foam material called Poron. This surround is directly derived from the Utopia’s famous Beryllium tweeter and reduces distortion by a third between 2,000Hz and 3,000Hz, the ear’s high-sensitivity range. The spatialisation and very low directionality of the inverted dome allow silky trebles to be heard from any point in your listening room.

Slatefiber technology, exclusive to Focal, involves the use of recycled, non-woven carbon fibers applied as a sandwich between two layers of thermoplastic polymer. In their quest for perfection, Focal engineers have opted to use non-woven carbon fibres, all pointing in the same direction to achieve even greater rigidity and better damping.
Manufactured in the Focal workshops using an ultra-modern industrial tool, the “slate” effect of the cone provides better damping and rigidity, but also lightness – the three “essentials” of a good speaker driver.
