Before I used that had as passive failure to make unmanageable mix at low Tannoy. As my space is very limited I also need tracks can be placed very close to the walls.
I use it mainly for recording vocals, guitar, bass, synths and prémixs and mixes.

SOUNDS

Rendering is excellent on all frequencies and considering the fact that I record a lot of acoustic instruments, the lack of subwoofer does not bother me too much. The sound is clear and detailed across the spectrum and I can easily and quickly identify any defects in the catch, which allows me to be safe for the integration of sounds on the final mix.

OVERALL OPINION

I use them for three years and they make me gain a lot of time on prémixs that I often do in an emergency. I used mainly passive Tannoy before.
What pleases me most with these Focal is the time saved through improved reliability listening.
This I like least is the lack of protection of the speakers, because once the gates removed can no longer use them and I move quite frequently.
I realized using these monitors (despite their high quality), it is important is to know well its speakers, ear offsetting the final defects.
Yes, I do it again this choice without problem.

What characteristics have motivated your choice?

I tasted the SM9 studio, but being out of budget I pulled on the CMS series with the board and after listening to some colleagues in the middle.

For what purpose? What amp / What configuration?

I use mainly for mixing in a more than acceptable sound. My board is envion 14m2. These are my main monitors.

SOUNDS

The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?

I was very neutral before the Dynaudio BM 5A MKII This is far better over neutrality and depth.

The sound is clear and precise on the spectrum?

Very neutral nothing to add. Obviously the SM6 / SM9 series is even better but this is another budget.

The stereo image is good?

At first it is destabilizing because the stereo width is amazing. After running it is beautiful.

The dynamics are respected?

Do not be fooled by their size, they monitor have considerable dynamic!

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?

I know for 1year, I finally cracked by buying my pair there a few days.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

The SM9 series SM6 with twin Solo 6 My Dynaudio BM 5A MKII, of Adam A77X, Genelec 8040 .... ect ...

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

Pros: The sound!! But also affordable compared to the quality of the proposed whether audible or physical product.

Cons: Do not have tried earlier lol! Seriously I blame their weight which is quite impressive compared to their size.

How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice?

the ratio Q / P is quite reasonable especially for the made in France. If it were to be remade? Yes eyes closed

NB: Note that it is important to monitor these lapping at the beginning because their sound is very disturbing limit disturbing.

I bought my home listening to CMS50 studio near
I made the competitors in the same price range (Dynaudio, Genelec, Krk)
quality is clearly audible focal

SOUNDS

This is where the magic happens, these little critters are quite surgical, the overall sound is defined, the default appear obvious.
strong point? mediums that are of breathtaking clarity, rendering stamps and contents and really amazing
the weak point is low, in fact, there's more from 45kz person, the defect can be closed with the addition of a sub, but hey, it is true that a little more precision the bottom was not a luxury

I make good, sound is good it seems clear, I would say that the curve is fairly linear
