Had an itch to upgrade 20 yr old Axiom M60 speakers, which provided good sound for years. First tried GoldenEar Triton 5's. There was a lot to like, and they looked great, but despite their bigger soundstage I found them a tad bright and fatiguing with my setup. Receiver was Marantz SR6012* with F/L/C pre-outs to Outlaw 5x120 amp. Two small subs assist the low end. Between reviews and Dante's recommendation, I went up a few notches to the Arias. They have been in place 2 months and sound great. Back in the day, I liked heavier bass. These days my ears appreciate music and dialogue that is clear, clean and crisp, which the 926s deliver, and they provide reasonable bass on their own. If the source is not great (lesser recording or soundtrack), these speakers let you know. Used 95% of time with Aria cc900 center for home theatre, the detail and sound stage are excellent. Starting to re-discover music via streaming and they sound great in stereo, too. Wondered about stepping up to the Aria 936, which have more oomph, but the 926 are sized better for my 13x16 room and listening position (per Focal, recommended for rooms up to 225 sqft, 10ft from listening position). Bigger could be better but I have come to recognize these Arias sing beautifully in situ. My five Aria speakers (with Aria surrounds) are impressive in HT, perhaps even more so in multi-channel stereo. *Just upgraded to an Arcam AVR20 using the amps in the receiver, and they sound even better.

Pros: Beautiful sound, accurate and detailed, with all types of music, DVDs and streaming. Beautiful look and finish.

Cons: Pricey.

Focal Aria 926

I've been looking at these Focal Aria 926 for two years now, auditioned them at a local high end audio store. After that, I've auditioned B&W 702 S2, Monitor Audio Silver 300( old version) that just recently got replaced, Martin Logan, Paradigm. After I heard them, I couldn't forget them, their looks and most importantly their sound quality! They are " buttery smooth " forward sounding. Airy, sharp, crisp, detailed highs, buttery midrange, that's very transparent. Big open soundstage. If you want that kind of sound, very revealing sound then look no further! I'm pairing these with Yamaha A-S1100 integrated amp that I also bought from Crutchfield, and SVS PB-2000 subwoofer..awesome people, advisors. I've made many calls asking for different opinions between Klipsch RP-8000F and Monitor Audio Silver 500 7G. I currently also have Monitor Audio Bronze 6 floor standing speakers, and wanted something more revealing, brighter, richer sounding!

Pros: Beautiful, gorgeous looking and sounding speakers! Won't be returning them back!

Cons: None!

Balanced through all the bandwidth and powerful enough to sound the room with high ceiling like 15 feet.

Pros: Little bit strong bass

Cons: But balanced with all the bandwidth

Just put the finishing touches on my system by adding the Focal 926. Even early on, without break in, they sound fantastic. The tweeters are accurate and detailed without being too bright and overall the speakers seem pretty accurate with good imaging. The mid range is just flat out great. I agonized between the 926 the 936 and the 948 but these are fine, especially with subwoofers. I tried out a few different speakers and these seem to be "the one" so far. It looks like the front of the speaker is faced in real leather. It is a shame the grill covers that up as I'd love to have a smaller grill that shows off some of that leather.

Pros: Beautiful build quality, Great and clear mid range.

Cons: None

Fantastic sound in manageable package

Fantastic sound in a fairly compact package. Forward facing port gives more placement options. Very nice quality of finish. And Crutchfield as always made the process enjoyable.

Pros: Fantastic sound Fairly compact Forward facing port

Cons: None so far

INCREDIBLE speakers.

These Focal speakers are absolutely incredible. I've never heard a better sounding system than what I have in place right now. Movies and music have never sounded better in my home! It's hard to imagine anything sounding better than this, at any price point.

Pros: Exceptional sound quality, can get extremely loud if you need them to be. These combined with my JL Audio subs shake the house. Impeccable build quality. Piano finish is absolutely perfect.

Cons: They're pretty heavy and big, and yet that's also what I like about them. They also take a little while to break in. I wasn't all that impressed when I first plugged them in. (Manufacturer says 20 hours or so of break-in time and I think that's spot on.) I noticed a significant improvement after leaving them on while I was away on a trip for about a week. After coming back home, they sounded noticeably better.

I could go on and on about these speakers, but here are the bottom lines; 1. Beautiful piano black...I mean rich and eye-popping beautiful. They really compliment my wood entertainment center, which is a completely different grain and color than the wood speakers. 2. Incredible sound! I have them paired with a JL Audio Dominion 108 sub, the Aria CC900 (black piano) center speaker and using a Sony ES Receiver Amp...just incredible sound! Like most genres of music, but lean towards Pink Floyd and Blues. 3. Extremely affordable for what I'll call the poor man's audiophile system....they're not $10,000+. 4. Oh yeah, paired with my Sony OLED TV too...phew, that picture mixed with the sound is....well...it just is. Here's the bottom line; I saw these back in 2016 at a very exclusive Home Entertainment store. I listened to several different speaker models and kept coming back to the Aria's. Unfortunately, they weren't going to work for me at the time. Anyway, I never stopped thinking about how much i loved the sound. Forward three years to 2019. I now live in Florida in a new house and was ready to take the plunge to setting up everything the way I wanted. I went to three different audio stores and listened to speakers, but none jumped at me as the Aria's and my memory recalled from 2016. Thus, I now have the speakers I wanted and couldn't be more pleased. I recommend you try to listen to them before you buy, but if you can't, I promise you will

Pros: Incredible sound and gorgeous looking speaker (piano black)

Cons: Hmmm....let's see....hmmm...nope, got nothing for you.
