THE FLAGSHIP MODEL
3-WAY FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKER
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 the flagship
model of this line, ideal for large rooms.
The TNF Aluminum/Magnesium tweeter
SOFT AND PRECISE TREBLE
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 spatialization and very low
directionality of the inverted dome allow silky trebles to be heard from any
point in your listening room.
The Slatefiber cone
PERFECTLY BALANCED SOUND
Slatefiber technology, exclusive to Focal,
involves the use of recycled, non-woven carbon fibres 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
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
A SLEEK, MODERN DESIGN
The Chora range boasts a modern design, all lifted onto a
tilted stand for Time Alignment, which provides an optimal soundstage, more
focused on the listener. The slate color of the Slatefiber cone adds a final
refined, authentic touch.
Chora is available in three finishes: Black, Light Wood and Dark Wood.
