”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 Amazing sound, fantastic natural sound!!! I was trying to replace my KEF Q75 with a pair of good quality speakers. I tried to pair something with my ARCAM SA20. I did try it with Dali Opticon 6 and Rubicon 6,Monitor Audio Silver 300, Bowers and Wilkins 603,703 and 702. Only Focal Aria 926 was able to deliver a delicate and pleasant enough sound. Nothing wrong with those speakers, just because my ARCAM was not a perfect much for them, not enough power. I love my new Focal, they look grand and sound pleasant. So, if you into Jazz or instrumental it is a good choice. Daniel from Southgate kindly assisted me in my research. Thank you for your time and professionalism.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - Should have spent the money years ago! I have had various speakers over the years KEF Q5, Tannoy ??, CA Aero 6, MA Bronze 6 etc. and I noticed these Focal Aria 926 some time ago and have been keeping an eye on reviews etc. thinking, maybe one day! Well, that day came a couple of weeks ago and first of all I think I got away with the domestic suitability as I assured SWMBO they were only a bit bigger than the Bronze 6s - just depends on your definition of "a bit"! They are pretty large beasts. First of all let's get the dislikes out of the way - the Walnut "Noyer" finish is not particularly nice - it has a bit of a dull grey hint to it - not nearly as nice as the Bronze 6 finish - both are vinyl wrap. Everything else is in a different league (which it should be for the price) - The fit and finish is exemplary (apart from the wrap!) The spikes are adjustable from the top of the plinth and are long enough to reach the concrete scree through my carpet and thick underlay - I had to source longer ones for the Bronzes as the OEM ones were ridiculously short. At 25Kg each these are stable! Combined with my Rega Brio (how about stocking Rega RS?) fed from my CA CXN & Novafidelity X12 server initial results were impressive - and even more so now they have 100 or so hours of use - just left them playing overnight for a week or two. The sound-stage and positioning of voices and instruments, laterally, vertically and depth is astounding - none of it seems to actually come from the speakers themselves. Detail is amazing and huge dynamics handled with out any sense of compression or running out of steam - would probably be even better with a bigger amp (Rega please, RS!) I was worried that based on some reviews and comments they would be too bright and "in your face" but I am hearing some top end on some of my favourite tracks that I did not know existed, but all of it is clear and "sweet" sounding. Makes me realise that I had been listening to quite a lot of mush sound with a sort of veiled effect on the Bronzes. In fact for certain tracks I used to be ready with the remote to tweak the volume down but now with the 926s they just sail through what I thought were rough patches. To put this into perspective, my ears are 69 years old and obviously have lost some top end response, so I guess they might sound a little brighter to much younger receptors. I am not a bass fiend BUT I do like to hear and feel it if it is there. The bass response from the Arias is good, well defined and clear but it does not really go low enough for my taste and I notice, now they have run in a bit, the integration with my XLS200 sub was not ideal. I have today added a DSpeaker Antmode 8033S-II to the system, put the sub in the corner of the room to try and reduce any nulls and let the device sort out the modes (peaks) and reverberation times - calibration was fully automatic with the supplied microphone - and the results are superb. The sub/speakers seem totally integrated and the whole system is very even down to 20Hz or so! Bass guitars, Double Bass, Drums and Organ low pedals etc. now all have timbre and superb transient response and no detectable over-run rumble! To sum up, I am extremely pleased with my purchase, they have really been a revelation in sound quality to anything I have owned or heard before. If you like a lot of deep bass and are not going to use a sub (with maybe an Antimode to clean it all up) then have really good listen before you buy. Finally, I would mention that these are totally manufactured by Focal in France - they make the cabinets, drivers and crossovers themselves so each part can be individually tuned for their particular design. This is totally different to a shed load of popular brands which advertise "Designed and Engineered in Britain" and then stick "Manufactured in China" on the actual box! A bit like my Rega Brio - designed and manufactured in Britain - Id like to upgrade to the Rega Elicit RS?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound Bought a pair of Aria 926 with a central speaker cc900 (along with other stuffs like onkyo amp, sub rel t5i and 2 MA silver fx ... and loads of cable) a week ago to cheer up in the middle of the lock down and I have to say ... it worked perfectly! What an incredible sound quality, unbelievable. It is like all the instruments are in my lounge. I rediscover all my playlist with a completely new eye. Thanks Richer Sounds for the demo and time to help me get the right set up. Really enjoy my new 5.1! Would recommend a solid setero amp though to get full power on these and a decent sub to fill some more bass. Last point, the look is also absolutely stunning !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ears not specs Fantastic for realism of classical and jazz music. Maybe shy on bass. Ultimately, you must ignore the specs and rely on your ears for the final judgement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds expectations I've had the Focal 926 for a while now, and I'm delighted with them. My neighbors too love these so much they even invite the police over... :D When I demo-d the pair in the store, I thought that they lean a bit heavy on the treble side. I've played "Runaway train" by Avantasia and "Scaretale" by Nightwish and my impression was that the vocals overlapped with the cymbals but I had a feeling the problem wasn't the speakers but the source (bluetooth connection and Tidal streaming). Sure enough, with FLACs everything becomes perfect. The soundstage is impressive, and there is a clear separation of instruments even on heavily orchestrated or complex symphonic-metal songs. That being said, these speakers are not designed for bass zombies. What you get is "feeling" and refinement. I've paired the speakers with the Cambridge Audio CXA61 amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply outstanding! I bought these very attractive cabinets from the Cardiff branch following a generous demonstration in-house. The competition were Monitor Audio's Silver 500 and Revel's Concerta2 F35. The demo commenced with the former which proved extremely disappointing, in particular being somewhat harsh. The Focals followed. What a contrast! Warm, deep clearly defined bass, detailed, involving and simply musical. The soundstage was awesome. The Revel's were close in terms of their musicality but felt constrained and lacking the presence of the Focals. Since getting them home they have re-energised my music library and enhanced my listening experience to new highs. The speakers are bring driven by another recently purchased piece of kit the Cyrus Three (also used at the demo) and I couldn't be more satisfied with the combination. A big shout out to Steff and John who were both knowledgeable and attentive.
