Already not a fan to buy, I buried by me lend PSI-17. For the same price (in Cygnus) was the phase compensation and enslaved boomer, you enter another world. Detail has dropped a solid picture, clear bass curve much more neutral, hidden instruments that appear.

Focal to remain timid sub (low medium high fat, illusion serious) a nice stereo image, but dissociated and details that keeps acute spicy (as we do when we can not phase compensation)

It's still beautiful pregnant oriented rather large and expensive public hair. Living, natural enough, and superb finishes, beautifully typed I would say (unless allergic to beryllium)

OVERALL OPINION

IMHO start with HS80 then go on to KH120 has MUCH for money.

a € 1,400 OCCAZ IF you like that sound, Focal are very lively, easy to place and usable but personally for 2000 € new, much jumping on the PSI or leave more for high-end monitors.

I do not like false bearings, for me the Focal Solo are very alluring but nibbled at the bottom (incredible kh120) and top (PSI technologies that benefit small A-14 and A-17, unlike the solos n do not have great things from this big sisters share a spicy beryllium)

Price / quality ratio very blah, but expensive acclaim.

Are 5 years ok, pretty standard, but in 2014 the Solo dangerously surrounded! Cocorico but still!
CMS worse, buried by KH120.

compare compare compare, among you, pay you, etc ...

Very good value for money

Focal Solo6 BePublished on 04/27/14 at 08:34
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
- I was looking for speakers to make autoprod (recording, mixing, mastering) without exceeding € 2000 budget. I knew it would compromise and all that way in these prices, I would have to use headphones to control the bottom.
My criteria were therefore a maximum linearity and details in the range 60-20000Hz with an accurate rendering of the space and the opportunity to work for hours without listening fatigue.
After several plays in the local shops, I turn to Solo6 and it is love at first sight: a non-fatiguing listening HiFi kind but full details are defined as reverbs, compressions, the placement in space. The sweet spot is not extraordinarily wide but once you're there, it's all...…

My criteria were therefore a maximum linearity and details in the range 60-20000Hz with an accurate rendering of the space and the opportunity to work for hours without listening fatigue.
After several plays in the local shops, I turn to Solo6 and it is love at first sight: a non-fatiguing listening HiFi kind but full details are defined as reverbs, compressions, the placement in space. The sweet spot is not extraordinarily wide but once you're there, it's all good, and switching to mono speakers disappear to give the impression of a central line. The surcompressions agree, bad mix sound bad but are good "hair stand on end" down slowly disappears from 70 to 40 but without becoming soft or artificially inflated by the event. (Once installed, I saw that the calculation of the port is so good that nothing is gained by the butcher).
In short, they meet my specifications and I leave with.

For a higher budget you can get better, but it is always the case. I do not work for Focal but I wish good luck to those who are looking better for the same price.

SOUNDS

Do not forget that the first parameter to the neutrality of a frequency curve is the listening room and speaker placement. The room itself is an equalizer followed by a reverb and an echo chamber. It is almost imperative to make the most possible absorbing front and rear walls of the symmetrical position relative to the side walls and absorb early reflections at the floor and ceiling.
The second step is to set the listening volume that plays on the sensitivity of the ear to different frequencies.
After these steps are completed, it is so everywhere, with just a little lower short between 70_60 and 40hz. But what I really appreciate is that it is never rough, depreciation is burr-free and has a very good dynamic on everything we hear.

The reputation of the brand Focal and comparative listening in Michenaud. They are very beautiful (if it matters if the aesthetics).
Using pro home studio. Taking voice, percussion, guitar. No jack against mandatory by XLR (standard pro). Switch to the back to adjust bass treble, master volume.

Very good record overall. Impeccable stereo image. Superb dynamics, I admit I'm looking disputed points.
His clear and precise (possibly that ATC is more accurate but I have no budget). Mixes super faithful listening to other points.

For my little stud 'I can not do better. I listened neumann kh120, the focal cms 50 and 65 in michenaud.
The vendor has advised us to listen to the speakers corresponding to our budget for more prices rise, more listening makes pregnant lower range fades. Frankly it is very true part. Neumann, focal are very good brands. The solo is perfect, I have not listened to the event opal side (trops great way to head to my local), I did well :-). I exchange solos for anything. Running long enough though.

Only downside, if we produce electronic music then it must be a box!
They do not go down very low ....

Before choosing this pair I looked at the side of opal (opal event) and then I listened to my instinct and voila!
No regrets!

Looking for a pair of speakers to mix in detail?? Solo 6 be are for you!
