The Hi-Fi loudspeaker is Focal’s core business. Thanks to the loan of a generous reader, we were able to get our hands on the Aria 936, a 3-way column speaker from the latest renewal of the range to date. Without further ado, let’s find out what it has to offer.
A successful bet for Focal and its Aria 936. The loudspeaker offers a manufacturing quality and a listening experience that really lives up to what is expected of a model of this type. Apart from a slight lack of impact in the bass, we cannot objectively reproach anything else; the rest is up to your listening preferences. Special mention for the spatialization and the feeling of proximity, both remarkable.
- Superb reproduction of stereophonic space.
- Striking feeling of closeness, especially on the voice.
- Precise and very well defined sound reproduction.
- Construction and finishes to the hair.
- Small lack of impact in the bass.
- A V profile in the treble that will not be to everyone’s taste.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
Mission accomplished for the Triangle team. As promised, the LN01 is both warm and precise. This sound coloration is a very well mastered bias. In addition, the enclosure is the subject of a particularly neat finish. What more…
