THE FLAGSHIP MODEL

Chora 826-D is the reference Home Cinema loudspeaker from the Chora line. Combining front channels and vertical dimension, it immerses you in a 3D Home Cinema experience! The full-range speaker driver located on the top of the loudspeaker uses sound wave reflection on the ceiling to reproduce the Dolby Atmos® effect.

Its highly directional baffle also allows the spectator to accurately locate Dolby Atmos® effects, as though you had loudspeakers built into the ceiling!

 

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 boasts a modern design, all lifted onto a tilted stand for Time Alignment, which provides an optimal soundstage, more focused on the listener. The slate colour of the Slatefiber cone adds a final refined, authentic touch.

 

ON-TREND FINISHES

Chora is available in three finishes: BlackLight Wood and Dark Wood. On-trend colours that blend into different interiors and lend them a unique aesthetic signature.
