Focal CMS 50
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.


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.


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.

High accuracy over the entire curve, no flattery, no excessive bass, works perfectly well at all volumes, and can be used in a small space.


the curve is neutral, the observed dynamic, precise stereo imaging, sound very clear.


I use them for 2 years, I worked on several models of Genelec and Yamaha, low and high range of scales, and focals are an excellent quality / price ratio.
Big positives: 1: the low mids and bass are very precise and beautiful, it does not bleed at all.
2: you can really work with small volume, and verif high volume does not reveal many errors.

With the experience I would do this choice.
