No Expense Spared, No Outsourced Parts, No Outside Supplier
Design, development, and manufacturing under one roof have many
advantages. Namely, unsurpassed quality control, customized engineering
principles, and continuous synergy. The approach also allows for
breakthrough technologies initially employed in reference-standard
models to trickle down. Conceived in the same French facility as Focal’s
world-renowned Utopia line, and subject to stringent refinement and
oversight, the Chorus 705 V harkens to a bygone era when companies spared
no expense in perfecting wares. No outsourced parts or labor are
employed in its manufacture; Focal needn’t depend on an outside
supplier. Such care is fantastically rare in the 21st century. From the
individually tailored drivers to cabinet reinforcements, the 705V
epitomizes value and ingenuity.
Polyglass Drivers and Inverted-Dome TNV Aluminum/Magnesium Tweeter
In French, “verre” means “glass.” Fittingly, the “V” in the Chorus 705 V
partially refers to the Polyglass drivers that have become a Focal
hallmark. Newly improved, they’re largely responsible for the speaker’s
scintillating response and superb dynamics. The
latter also benefit from the new aluminum/magnesium inverted-dome TNV
aluminum/magnesium tweeter, derived from technologies in the Grande
Utopia Be. It yields significantly lower distortion, illustrious high
frequency responses, heightened airiness, and flatness up to 28kHz. The
705V is the exemplar of a finely detailed compact loudspeaker: truly
balanced and neutral, while providing deeper bass response. It throws a
wide, deep soundstage that belies the speaker's dimensions.
All Speakers Should Look and Sound So Good
Chorus 705 V is as visually striking as it is sonically wondrous. Yet
the sleek looks aren’t just for show. Everything has a practical
purpose. Framed by rock-solid MDF construction, the gorgeous silhouette
affords an internal non-parallel structure that inhibits and eliminates
standing waves, a trait that, until now, has not been available at this
price point. Smart, stylish, sexy: Focal Chorus 705 V has it all. You
will not find a better bookshelf loudspeaker for the price, particularly when mated with the S700V stands.
"[The 705s] compare favorably with the best nearfield desktop monitors I've heard...these diminutive monitors can deliver satisfying performance for a refreshingly miniscule price."
