Focal Chora 826
THE FLAGSHIP MODEL
3-WAY FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKER
The Chora 826 bass-reflex loudspeaker is the embodiment of an accessible high-fidelity solution for a complete listening pleasure. Equipped with the exclusive Slatefiber cone developed and manufactured at the Focal site in France, the speaker drivers deliver balanced and precise midranges and perfectly articulated bass; leaving you to enjoy a big, full and generous sound. In addition, the presence of an aerodynamic front port eliminates distortion and gives more impact in the bass.
Its sleek, modern design combined with your choice of finish, and the tilted stand for a better sound image, make Chora 826 the flagship model of this line, ideal for large rooms.
Our technical expertise and industrial mastery enable us to offer music lovers a generation of leading loudspeakers within their price range. Chora embodies the mastery of the overall design process, and is confirmation that, now more than ever, the manufacturing of affordable products demands an investment in high-performance production tools. Benefiting from technological advances developed for the Utopia III range, such as the inverted dome tweeter, the Chora line incorporates a brand new Focal technology for its midrange and bass speaker drivers: the Slatefiber cone, a composite sandwich cone made from thermoplastic polymer with recycled non-woven carbon fibers. Manufactured in our workshops in France, this cone boasts the beautiful “slate” effect, for even better damping, rigidity and lightness, the “essentials” of a good speaker driver. Alongside the TNF Aluminium/Magnesium tweeter with its silky treble, the Slatefiber woofers deliver powerful bass and midrange a lot of precision. Finally, thanks to the tilt of the loudspeaker stand, Time Alignment provides an optimal soundstage, more focused on the listener. Every detail of the Chora’s appearance has been carefully thought out and meticulously designed. In addition to a sleek, modern design, the line presents a choice of three on-trend finishes to satisfy all tastes and to blend seamlessly into interior living spaces. With Chora, there is no shortage of sound and visual harmony for a quality listening experience in your own home, and a true High-Fidelity experience.
The TNF Aluminium/Magnesium tweeter
SOFT AND PRECISE TREBLE
The surround linking the dome to its stand uses a memory foam material called Poron. This surround is directly derived from the Utopia’s famous Beryllium tweeter and reduces distortion by a third between 2,000Hz and 3,000Hz, the ear’s high-sensitivity range. The spatialisation and very low directionality of the inverted dome allow silky trebles to be heard from any point in your listening room.
The Slatefiber cone
PERFECTLY BALANCED SOUND
Slatefiber technology, exclusive to Focal, involves the use of recycled, non-woven carbon fibres applied as a sandwich between two layers of thermoplastic polymer. In their quest for perfection, Focal engineers have opted to use non-woven carbon fibres, all pointing in the same direction to achieve even greater rigidity and better damping. Manufactured in the Focal workshops using an ultra-modern industrial tool, the “slate” effect of the cone provides better damping and rigidity, but also lightness – the three “essentials” of a good speaker driver.
A SLEEK, MODERN DESIGN
The Chora range offers a modern design, the slate colour of the Slatefiber cone adding a final refined, authentic touch.
The stand (optional) is tilted for Time Alignment which provides an optimal soundstage, more focused on the listener.
Chora is available in three finishes: Black, Light Wood and Dark Wood. On-trend colours that blend into different interiors and lend them a unique aesthetic signature.
