I'm super pleased with my Focal Chora 816s. They very capably fill my large listening space with warm, detailed sound and the wide soundstage makes them sound amazing from anywhere in the room. I'm powering them with a Sonos amp (which allows me to use the Sonos platform for streaming) and use them solely for music -- streaming (via Sonos), CDs (NAD CD player) and vinyl (Denon turntable). They're a little larger than I was ideally looking for, but the sound quality more than makes up for the size.
Pros: Detailed sound, wide soundstage, great frequency range.

Replaced a set of Definitive Technology BP9040 and CS9040s. The highs and mids on the Chora 816s are just out-of-this-world in comparison. You can hear things you just couldn't with the DefTechs, and they pair REALLY well with dual subs. Only complaint would be a touch of brightness at the very high end, but that can be worked out through the receiver. The clarity that the tweeters put out is insane, and the slate-fiber mids have been a true joy to listen to.
Pros: Well-built, fantastic tweeters, great soundstage.
Cons: A tad bright on the highest end.
