Giving the perfect balance between power and precision, the time aligned Focal Chora 816 hit the sweet spot.

Ideal for home cinema and powerful stereo sound
This relatively compact floorstanding speaker is ideal for home cinema or stereo systems in smaller to medium-sized rooms. Thanks to its front-facing bass port, this stylish Focal speaker works well placed closer to a rear wall than usual.

Dedicated bass for dynamic sound
This 2.5-way Focal speaker has a dedicated bass woofer in each speaker. Almost like having a mini subwoofer in each speaker, this speaker layout provides a deeper, more solid bass response. Ideal for under-pinning all-action soundtracks or stadium music alike, the Chora 816 delivers smooth, powerful bass.

Time alignment gives enhanced cohesion
The Chora 816 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.

Focus on the sound, with the Chora 816.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning frequency range! The speakers are elegant slim floor standers with an angled plinth as a base to time align the drive units. It's best to listen to them with the magnetic grilles removed. The reflex port is on the front of the units and allow them to be placed quite close to the back wall. I am amazed at the frequency range of the speakers. The top end is clear and not 'tizzy' or sharp, just natural and the base range seems to head for infrasonic on some records. When you listen to them they just disappear and leave you listening to the music.I feel like I am hearing a lot of my music collection properly for the first time. Do yourself a big favour and give these a listen. I was intending to buy stand mount book shelf speakers but after hearing these I could not leave Cambridge Richer Sounds without purchasing them.
