Good balanced speaker. Needs a strong receiver to drive it well and get the full performance of speaker.


They sound very good.


Sound great; excellent depth & detail.


Love Focal quality. Hopefully will be able to purchase for my main system when sound room is finished..


New to this new pair of speakers and they are not 'broken in' as of yet, they appear to be a very good product.
However, when I recieved them, the syrofoam packaging that hold the speakers in place were completely broken apart and both speaker covers frames were cracked apart at the top and not repairable. I am hoping they can be replaced.

Very nice looking speakers look awesome. Not much bass. Only loud when volume is turned up fairly high. 16 yr old cerwin-vegas E-315 blow them out of the water and i payed i think 300 each 16 yrs ago for them. Retail for 826 where 2,700 a pair. I would have never payed that. I would of sent them back if i payed that. I dont know truly if they where worth the money. I got them for 1,500 thought i was getting a great deal and an amazing speaker to blow my cerwins away. When it comes down to it I might of been able to get better speaker for a cheaper price. But not going through the return process to annoying and time consuming. Was debating on the 826v and the Klipsch RF-82 II. Not sure if i made the right choice. But reviews where out standing for focal 826 compaired to RF-82. So I got the focals. The focals and cerwins will be great together till i die. But i was looking for a set of speakers to get rid of my cerwins.. Now after shopping around and seeing what the market has and the prices and what you get for your money ill hang on to the cerwins for ever.


i will be very short...these speakers are absolutely outstanding and i think they are worth much more than they are. Thanks To Focal for such a great product!


I love the sound of the speakers so far. I can't wait until they're broken in! Wonderful.


Well sounding speakers. Need proper poweramp.


Fabulous speakers, stunning quality. *****


Great product


Once the tweeter's grill was removed, the loudspeaker was so much more clear and open, yet still balanced. Amazing, especially for the price point.


I listened to the Focal Chorus 826v speakers today and they are a rare speaker in that they play classical as well as they play rock. I wasn't sure this existed. I've been looking for months for a simple two speaker set up that can do both. The floor speakers won me over for their deep refined bass over the bookshelves. My test tracks were ACDC Thunderstruck, John Williams Cavatina and Madeleine Peyroux Blue Alert. These speakers put a smile on my face with each. Previously I was impressed with the Dali Zenzor 7 for what they did with Thunderstruck (awesome), but disappointed hearing classical guitar through them. The Focal Chorus were awesome all round. Cavatina sounded like it did when I heard John Williams live! I wanted to write this review because its been so hard finding speakers with so much versatility. I also didn't know where to start looking here in Perth. Of course I was pointed to JB HiFi and Harvey Norman. I almost ended up at Bang Olufsen but didn't want to change my whole set-up as their equip seems to require. I found the Focal Chorus at Westcoast HiFi in O'Connor (near Fremantle) quite by accident. I hope this review helps anyone else who enjoys classical as much as rock.


Excellent speakers!!!
