This new Chora line succeeds the line of Focal Chorus speakers. This one has been a reference in its range for many years.

The Chora series has the particularity to be built around a new speaker and a new slate-colored membrane, called “Slatefiber” by the manufacturer.

The Chora series is represented by 3 models of Hi-Fi speakers: two towers and one bookshelf. They offer a modern design quite different from the previous range.


The Focal Chora 806 is a Bass reflex 2-way speaker. Mid and low frequencies are reproduced by a 16.5 cm driver equipped with the Slatefiber membrane.

The Slatefiber technology, exclusive to the Focal manufacturer, consists of non-woven recycled carbon fibres, placed in sandwich between two layers of thermoplastic polymer.

In their quest for perfection, Focal engineers decided to use non-woven carbon fibres, all oriented in the same direction in order to have even greater rigidity and better damping.

Made in France using a very sophisticated industrial tool, this very light membrane with a "slate" effect, allows you to obtain more damping and rigidity than a cellulose membrane.

The membrane is protected thanks to a metal grid.


The bass transducer is loaded in Bass/Reflex via a port on the front panel of the Focal Chora 806 speaker. It is relayed in the high frequencies by an aluminium/magnesium TNF tweeter.

The suspension of this transducer connects the dome to its Poron support. This shape memory suspension is similar to the famous Utopia Beryllium tweeter.

It divides by three the distortion in the most critical area from 2000 Hz to 3000 Hz. The inverted dome limits directivity and increases spatialization.

The bass/midrange speaker is concealed behind a circular cover with magnetic fixation.


This bookshelf speaker is perfect for rooms between 10 and 25 m².

The connection to the amplifier is via a simple and well-made terminal block that accepts bare wire, banana plugs or forks.

A specific stand for these Focal Chora 806 speakers is optional. It is inclined to respond to “Time Alignment” and provides a more accurate and a sound scene more centered to the listener.


The restitution of this Chora 806 is very balanced and keeps all Focal’s DNA.

We find the neutrality and transparency of the previous models that made the reputation of the French manufacturer. The timbres are quite soft and provide an excellent matter to the instruments.

We appreciate the presence and realism of the voices and strings. This is also due to the excellent quality of the treble. It is precise and perfectly integrated with the rest of the spectrum.

There is also an excellent bass, very expressive and dynamic.

The pair of Focal Chora 806 bookshelf speakers is an excellent 2-way speakers from the French manufacturer. It offers outstanding musicality with small quality integrated amplifier!

Étonnant !

Anciennement équipé de Cabasse Brick M8 et après moulte réflexion, j'ai fait le choix de ces enceintes Focal. Et je ne le regrette absolument pas. Le rendu Focal est extra.


Bon rapport Qualité/Prix

Je me décide enfin à ajouter un commentaire sur mon achat effectué il ya un mois et demi. Sur un conseil de Frank, j'ai changé de paires d'enceintes deux voies pour mon plus grand plaisir, en effet j'avais jusqu'à maintenant des enceintes disons capricieuses. Je peux désormais apprécier l'écoute de mes disques avec une meilleure définition. Les Focal Chora 806 sont très belles en finition noir, la façade est laquée noir et le reste du bel effet bois noir. Dans un premier temps, je les ai associées à un ampli hybride Pier Audio, mais ce dernier est défectueux et la réparation semble assez cauchemardesque. Alors je les ai associées à un ampli Atoll In 30 acheté d'occasion mais qui fonctionne très bien. Le résultat est plutôt bon pour une écoute quotidienne. Les médiums des enceintes sont bien maitrisés et j'ai une bonne dynamique en général sur de nombreux disques vinyles. Quand j'ai cherché à acheter de nouvelles enceintes, j'ai laissé Frank choisir pour moi le modèle après qu'il m'ait posé les bonnes questions, environnement d'écoute, style de musique, etc. Pour l'envoi, cela a été très rapide, moins de 48 heures. Merci à toute l'équipe ma ^^
