"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 Deep, flawless finish and sound to match . I bought these as I had to downsize ( my KEF R900’s being too big for the room ) . I originally intended to get a pair of KEF LS50 metas but upon hearing them in the Preston stores auditioning room I found them lacking in depth and base although the detail was superb. The sales staff were great and promptly substituted and suggested other options. Then along came the Focals. At last . A floor stander that’s not too big, nor to small. Full of detail , with a punchy room filling base line . A Goldilocks speaker. Although they couldn’t fully match my old R900’s they came pretty close which says a lot for a cabinet half the size and half the price . On arrival it was a simple task to assemble the floor plate/ feet and when positioned and after a couple of weeks running in I am happy to report that they sound even better thru my system ( Linn sondek / Linn Akurate DS ) and in my room than they did in the audition room. Thanks to Sam at Richersounds Preston for putting up with me and the many changes you had to make. If there was an area of improvement to be made …… a brew and a biscuit would be nice ! Cheers guys .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Focal Aria926 / Arcam sa30. Perfect! I never knew much about av stuff but I like good sound. A few months ago I embarked on a journey of discovery which started at a certain place and ended somewhere completely different, in terms of equipment and budget!! All my own doing, of course, (budget I mean), but expertly guided and helped by the guys at RS Windsor and Eaton. Big thanks to James, Zak, Steve and Lee for understanding and assisting with my lack of knowledge in these matters, especially James and Zak. I’ve ended up with the superbly balanced Focal Aria 926’s and the hefty clean power of the Arcam sa30 integrated amp. Thanks again guys, enjoying my music and movies much more and will definitely be back for all my av needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous soundstage Purchased two weeks ago and used in conjunction with an Audiolab 8000A. Superb speakers revealing detail and depth of sound not heard before. Warm and rhythmical. Excellent build quality and sleek appearance. Recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, so far First pair had slight damage, but as usual, Richer Sounds sorted with the utmost professionalism. Every something like that happens, I am reminded why I shop here. The speakers: for the price, amazing. Bass is fantastic but quite bright (although not by some more modern standards). Already considering a second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch help I went to the shop to get a Kef LS90 Meta, however, after a few tries the focals which were sat outside were brought in by the kind agent for a try and OMG, the sound blew my mind. It was over the budget but definitely worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound across a range of musical styles I bought these as my first step into "proper" hifi, to fill a large extension room, and am very pleased with them. First impressions were good, they are physically large and so look imposing even in a large room. The sound is fantastic - as advised in the manual I kept the volume low (ish!) for the first 20 hours or so of listening but the detail they give to music is incredible. That detail comes at a price though - I'd previously listened, via Sonos, to a mixture of CDs ripped to lossless flac format on a NAS drive and Spotify. The flac files sounded brilliant, and I've spent many hours listening to old albums I haven't touched in years just enjoying how they sound on these speakers. Spotify was poor in a way my Sonos kit had never revealed though - I had to switch to Tidal HiFi, which again sounds very good. After the initial run-in period was over I could really crank them up - it's dangerously easy to do so, the music never sounds distorted and so you don't realise how loud they are! I listen primarily to metal / rock and couldn't fault them for this, but switching to electronic dance music you'd think you were in a club - no sub required! Acoustic / classical guitar also sounds fantastic too, as much as the sheer "oomph" these speakers are capable of it really is the detail that they are capable of which takes your breath away. Overall extremely happy!
