”The Chora 826 swiftly resolves any debate about whether to go for a standmount or floorstander, and it’s bad news for the standmount.” ’Hi-Fi Choice’ – Recommended.

Ideal for cinematic and big-scale stereo sound

With the largest cabinet in the Chora range, plus an impressive array of drivers, the 826 punches hard. The size makes it ideal for larger rooms and effortless performance at high volume levels. Thanks to its front-facing bass port, this stylish Focal speaker works well placed closer to a rear wall than usual.

Twin woofers for thumping bass
This 3-way Focal speaker has not one but two woofers dedicated to bass; in each speaker. Delivering bass response to match many a subwoofer, the Chora 826 digs deeper and goes louder. Ideal for under-pinning all-action soundtracks or stadium music alike, the Chora 826 delivers expansive, powerful bass.

Time alignment gives enhanced cohesion
The Chora 826 features a time alignment stand. This tilts the speaker upwards, meaning the sound from the tweeter and woofer is aligned in the time it takes to reach your ears. Time alignment provides better interaction between treble and mid-range, making the music sound more cohesive and ‘together’ across the frequency response.

Slatefiber cone for balanced sound
The three characteristics required for smooth, natural sound from a speaker driver are rigidity, lightness and damping. Focal’s impressive new Slatefiber cone hits all three targets – and then some. Using non-woven, carbon fibres, sandwiched between layers of thermoplastic polymer, the woofer cone provides the perfect composition for smooth, precise sound – whatever the type of music.

TNF tweeters for smooth precision
Derived from the reference Focal Utopia’s Beryllium tweeter, the TNF tweeters use aluminium and magnesium with Poron suspension for an exceptionally smooth yet detailed sound. The Poron surround reduces distortion at a point critical to human hearing, giving silky-smooth treble. The classic Focal inverted dome is also present – helping to give a broader spread of sound in your room.

Sleek style – just choose your colour
Crisp, contemporary design makes these speakers stand out, without jarring. The crisp edges contrast with the magnetically attached, rounded grille. Choose between black, dark wood and light wood finishes for a style that best suits your room.

Immerse yourself in the music, with the enveloping sound from the Focal Chora 826.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from IMPRSSIVE LOOKING I LOVE THE LOOK OF THE SPEAKRES ALTHOUGH I HAVE YET TO TRY THE SYSTEM (TURN-TABLE + AMP) OUT. A NEGATIVE WAS HOW DIFFICULT IT WAS TO REMOVE THE RED AND BLACK PLASTIC PLUGS FROM THE CONNECTIONS WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE BY HAND AND I HAD TO RESPORT TO USING A SMALL SCREW AND SCREW-DRIVER WHICH SEEMED EXTREME AND I WAS FRIGHTENED OF CAUSING DAMAGE TO THE CONNECTIONS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and great purchase We went to the York branch whilst on holiday to listen to 3 short listed speakers and our host was Arron. He was all of these things, patients, knowledgeable and polite. Even when technical difficulties happened he stuck at it and never made us feel under pressure. he speakers sound great, they have replaced a pair of 34 year old Acoustic Research 142s which to be fair was a challenge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sounding speakers I decided I needed a speaker upgrade and scheduled an audition of a number of speakers. After reading reviews, I was pretty sure I'd end up with some B&W or KEF speakers. It was great to be able to test the speakers with my own amplifier. After listening to a few different models, Steve from Richer Sounds suggested I try some Focals. They sounded instantly and measurably better than the others I'd tried. My music was full with a ton of detail. I would never have thought of trying Focal, or any French manufacturer, but I'm really glad Steve suggested them. The store didn't have the 826s available, but I listened to the Aria 936 and the Chora 806. No one at Richer Sounds was at all pushy or salesy. I took a couple of days to think it over and took a risk that the 826s would be a good match for my needs. I ordered them on a Wednesday morning and was really delighted they turned up on the Thursday. The 826s have been fantastic so far. I can sit and listen to them for hours and keep hearing new elements in songs I've heard 100s of times before. They look really great too. The fronts can appear blue in some pictures but they're really grey with a blue tint. If you get the 826s, I really hope you like them. I'd suggest you finesse the positioning to get the optimum sound for your main listening position, otherwise they're great just straight out of the box.
