"The new cone gives smoother and more subtle sound." 'Hi Fi Choice magazine'. Recommended.

Powerful, three-way performance

Using two drive units dedicated entirely to bass with a separate one for mid-range, the Focal Aria 926 has bass power to spare. Combined with the large floorstanding cabinet, it gives the Aria 926 the chance to do full justice to powerful RnB, large orchestral or stadium rock music. If you're looking for a speaker that can effortlessly portray the entire music spectrum, then this is it.

Flax cones for a natural sound
Using Focal's unique Flax cone material, the 926 also sounds smooth and natural. The dedicated mid-range unit lets vocals stand out from the mix and reproduces them exactly as the producer intended.

TNF tweeters for smooth precision
Developing Focal's famous inverted style tweeter further, the TNF tweeters use aluminium and magnesium with Poron suspension for an exceptionally smooth yet detailed sound. Waveguides help create an accurate soundstage that makes it feel like the musicians are in the room.

Sleek curves for a room friendly style
Although the Aria 926 speakers stand over a metre tall, their smooth lines and luxury finish means they effortlessly blend with your decor. Ideally used in medium-sized rooms at a listening distance of around 3 metres, these speakers create a 'wall of sound'.

Front ported for flexible positioning
By placing the bass port at the front rather than the rear of the cabinet, the Aria 926s can be placed closer to the rear wall without losing out too much on sound quality. Focal have also provided adjustable plinths with these speakers. By attaching spikes, this lets you get exactly the right degree of 'tilt' for the most precise listening experience.

Highly recommended by the hi-fi press, these multi-award-winning speakers play it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A flawless master piece of engineering After a chance encounter with a Stockport store demo , I had fallen for the rich range of sound these offered. They are the philharmonic to my orchestra. Paired with a Focal Done 5.1 and Klipsch 120.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Poor Quality Control Had to return the first pair of Aria 926s speakers to my dealer as there where loose strings of flax hanging from the midbass driver. Also on examining the general condition of the speaker cabinets there was a long mark down the front edge of one of the cabinets, around 18 inches long. Looks like a poorly finished varnish issue that has not been picked up by quality control. I had contacted my supplier and had to return the speakers at my expense for another pair. My new pair of Aria 926s are now home and up and running. Really happy with the sound of the arias but on unboxing I was yet again faced with unsightly flax strings from one of the midbass drivers. There was even more then the last pair of arias I returned. I have now carefully removed the strings. I was a little concerned about removing the strings, being so near the glue seam of the rubber surround. Is it normal practice for Focal to distribute their speakers in this condition? Surely as a customer I shouldn't have to deal with this. As I said I really do love the sound of the arias but would think twice about purchasing Focal due to their obvious Quality control issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Focal aria 926 Extremely satisfied with my purchase, the best all round speaker I have had the pleasure of owning. Aesthetically pleasing on the eye, superbly finished with excellent craftsmanship. Brings both cinema and musical experiences to life, with an exceptional focus on the finer details, aiding to provide an all round pleasurable listening experience. Having owned many a high end speaker system in the past, I would not hesitate to recommend the Focal Aria 926 to anyone who is looking for that next level clarity and sound experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detailed sound from elegant black After 3 demonstration visits to Richer Sounds Cambridge I finally bought a pair of piano black Focal Aria 926 speakers. I originally I went into hear some Wharfdale Evo 4.4 speakers because they have ribbon tweeters and I had read a great review about them but I thought other loudspeakers sounded better. Eventually, I was advised by one of the staff at Richer Sounds to return for a third visit to hear the Focal Aria 926 and I was surprised at the improvement in sound detail. The bass response was far superior and I realised I could hear detail in some familiar CDs that I had never heard before - particularly in the Swingle Singer's version of "No more I-love-yous". I have sadly blown-up a pair of Quad electrostatic loudspeakers and a pair of B&W 683 S2. When I first heard the electrostatic speakers demonstrated back in 1988 I was astonished at the quality and again with the B&W speakers in 2013 but I suspect the Focal Aria 926s comfortably beat their predecessors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fantastic Bought these from Oxford a month ago. We spent a couple of hours in the shop testing different speakers with our own amp and cd player and kept coming back to these Focal 926's (and then we upgraded to the piano black finish). Absolutely fantastic. Thank you RS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best speakers I have heard! I have stayed with a top of the range hi-fi system purchased many years ago and have never considered changing, but recently decided to begin with an upgrade of speakers. The problem was ... how much would I have to spend to get something better than what I have? I knew it was likely to be expensive! I figured the detail would have improved significantly over the years and couldn't have anticipated the surprise of hearing these after the recommendation by Kaz at the Oxford store. The clarity, detail and response took my breath away as I found myself hearing things I'd not previously noticed in tracks I knew well. Of course, my doubt was they were being driven by the best possible set-up in the demonstration room. But how would they sound at home with the gear still at the top of its game? They cost more than I intended to spend, but figured they could only sound better at home. After installing them, I held my breath as I began listening. In truth, as close to perfection as I could possibly hope for. Awesome - I'd not only recommend listening to them, but buy them without hesitation. Thanks Kaz; perfect.
