Dear owners of Aria 926


Has anyone had a Chance to make a direct comparison between Monito Audio 8 and Focal Aria 926?
What will sound better in stereo in a 18m2 room with arcam avr?
I will be very grateful for any comment.

I have an Arcam 750...i heard a Monitor Audio Silver 6 and Aria conected to the Arcam AVR. Along with Kef Rs, Sonus Faber and B&W CM. I liked the Arias and CMs best...and after that the MA Silver.

I prefered the Aria, the MA Silver is slighty Brighter and more "metallic" sounding, the Aria is a little Smoother, it's a matter of taste . I recommend listening to both, it's a very personal thing.

Regarding you room size...i have Arias 936 in a 25 m2 room , works fine, but maybe if you have 18m2, and don'«t mind a little bass extension maybe the Aria 926 and the MA Silver 6 will be more suited to the room.

I listened to 926 and I liked it very much. However, I haven't had any chance to compare it with Silver 8 which is also highly recommended.


926 is the lowest model in Aria series. Will its bass overblow me?

Regarding the MA Silver...the MA Silver 8 is roughly comparable in terms of bass extension to the 936, not the 926. The MA Silver 6 is more comparable to the 926.
Check Focal and MA websites.

Hard to say, depends a lot on you room acustics and distance from walls and your distance from speakers... Maybe for you room bigger than a 926 or MA Silver 6 will be too much If you can't test it at home, maybe you can speak and get advise with your dealer ?

If you will be using a Subwoofer and depending on how you set the crossover, however note that much of the LFrquencies will be directed to the Subwoofer.

Hello

I just purchased 1038be with the cc1008be center. I will have them on Monday. I am switching from Paradigm signature s4v2 that had the beryllium tweeter also. I really liked the Paradigms and I am taking a leap of faith since I have only heard Focals at different shows. I was always impressed with all of their models so i am looking forward to the comparison. Will post a little comparison review if anyone is interested

it's not even a contest ... to me. I've heard both and the Focal setup will blow the Paradigm's out of the park. enjoy.

I am contemplating moving from my S4 v2s to a pair of 1028BEs. I am eager to hear your findings.

If nobody else gets to it first, I have the boxes up in my attic that I can measure tomorrow as I won't be home before dark tonight (the lighting is poor up there). If you don't get an answer by then, send me a PM as a reminder (or just bump your question in this thread as I'm subscribed).

I'm lurking in some French audio forums and look what I found about Aria's walnut finish ,translated by Google:
"We do have recently changed cabinet supplier to the finish Walnut (Walnut) Aria line 900. The latter will be replaced in the coming months with a new finish that will be an opportunity to diversify the range! I also miss not keep you informed As for Black High Gloss finish, it remains unchanged and is still sold. But rest assured Aria line 900 is not stopped and has yet bright future ! Otherwise, regarding cases of our speakers, as statedkurtkiller we manufacture ourselves well in our cabinet in Bourbon Lancy for the higher ranges (Utopia and Electra). Sincerely, Marine, Community Manager Focal"

Also was mentioned that the company producing the Walnut boxes filed for bankruptcy and that was the reason of changing the supplier.

Very interesting. Explains why I couldn't get any Walnut finished 906's.

Ended up getting SR 900 instead.

That's why I didn't go for the 906 in black as I have the 926 and Cc900 in Walnut already but black 906's wouldn't look right

Unfortunately, walnut from a different cabinet builder may not be a good match either as the finish may end up being different.

Hello
I am about to buy aria 926.
However, one of the dealers offered the demo of Vandersteen 1ci.
He claims that they should be overall better than Aria 926.
It's a long way from me to go there and test it.


Has anyone had a chance to listen to Vandersteen 1c and can express his opinion about them in reference to Focal Aria?
I will be very grateful
Best Regards

It has been several years, but I did hear a pair of Vandersteen speakers. It was a different sound than Focal, and not to my personal liking. Sorry I don't recall the model or why it was not to my liking.
How far of a drive is "a long way"? I would highly suggest auditioning the pair before purchasing as you may find out you love them, or hate them... Just for reference, I have always liked Paradigm's sound with the exception of the "pre-Be Signature series" which I thought were on the bright side, but an poster a few days back commented about Paradigm not sounding that good.

I also responded to your PM, but in case anybody else needs the numbers:

The 1038Be box dimensions in the orientation they would be placed on a pallet for shipping are: 56" long x 17" wide x 24" tall. I rounded the numbers up slightly (by about 1/4") to the next full inch.

I disagree with his assessment. The 1Ci is a very good speaker, but overall I believe the sound signature of the Aria 926 will be better. The Vandersteen will have better bass if that's your thing, but I think the extension of the Focal tweeter and the performance of its flax drivers will outperform the Vandersteen. I've also found that the 1Ci does not last very long. A friend of mine had the crossover fail on his used pair and he had to repair them.

Thank You for your comments.

I also think that Focal Aria 926 should be better.


Has anyone bought any subwoofer for Aria 926?
I am thinking about surround 5.1 set up and I don't know which sub would be the best to go with aria 926.
Has anyone tried Focal's Sub 300 P? It doesn't seem to go quite low : only 36Hz -160Hz

get yourself a SVS sub & you'll be golden for both HT & music. unlike a center channel, there is no need for a tonal match.

I am always confused by the Focal subwoofers. I'm sure they're very responsive and are capable of accurate tonality, but they just do not perform to a low enough octave to be called a subwoofer! Don't worry too much about matching the subwoofer to the speakers. If you're going 5.1 channel for movies and not 2.1 channel for strict and critical music listening, you need a subwoofer that will handle the lowest frequencies with ease, even if its response could get a bit messy.

Vandersteen has a love hate sound. The midrange is very different. I prefer the Focal. It is a more balanced speaker. Audition the Vandersteen. You will know in 5 seconds whether you like it or not.

Thank You for your comments.

I am thinking about Focal 5.1 set up - 50% of which will be surround audiophile music from 5.1 sacd and dvd-a.

Now I have B&W ASW600 which has 150W nad 22Hz-180Hz.

Do you think it is too weak to accompany Aria 926 in music or film?

Sub output relies heavily on the size of the room, the type of sub (ported/sealed), placement (corner, wall, free standing) and amplifier power.

The ASW600 is a relatively small sealed sub with a relatively weak amp and thus unless your room is very small and it is placed in a corner, it will probably not be able to produce reference level output for movies if that is what you want.

I have focal 705v's as mains right now paired with a Denon x1000 (2.0 system). Looking to upgrade...I can't have a sub right now as I live in an apartment. Looking to buy better mains and place the 705vs as surrounds. Is this advisable? Do people usually buy the same speakers for their setup? Looking to get some of the newer focals (906 maybe?) as my mains.

EDIT: I listen to about 70% music and 30% tv/movies.

I have found, for the most part, Focal speakers of different series mesh very well in theater setups. Originally I had Chorus S series all around, but I have upgraded over the years. I presently have Electra S fronts, a Profile Center, Chorus V 800 surrounds, and one pair of my original Chorus S as the rears.
Assuming your 70% music is 2-Channel, then the other speakers don't even matter. I do listen to multi-channel SACDs/DVD-As and am still happy with my set-up.

Can anyone please help me with impedance issue.


I read in the specs of Focal Aria 926 that they reach minumum impedance of as low as 2,9 Ohms. Higher models go even lower on impedenace.


I would like to power 926 with Arcam AVR 400 whose nominal impedance range is from 4-8 Ohms.


Does it mean that I cannot power aria 926 effectively with my AVR? Will it pose any problems?


I will be grateful for any explanation.

A speaker's impedance is very dynamic based on the musical content. These 2.9 ohm lows are only for momentary musical peaks of low frequency content. Most decent quality AVRs should be able to handle this.

If you plan to roll your speakers off above 80 Hz and let your sub do the low frequency duty, as is common with many surround sound setups, the speakers will never reach a 2.9 ohm load.

If you plan to roll your speakers off above 80 Hz and let your sub do the low frequency duty, as is common with many surround sound setups, the speakers will never reach a 2.9 ohm load.

Thank You for your reply
I know that this is for momentary low end peaks.


However, how should I know that my AVR is able to handle 3 Ohms. I only read that AVR400 is very stable at 4 Ohms. Does it say anything in regard to 3 Ohms?


I am not going to use sub for stereo music.

If you're going to be using that receiver for just 2 channel music it will definitely be able to handle the load. 2 channel will be a breeze compared to 7 channels. And that receiver has/had an MSRP of almost $3000 so I'm guessing it's quite capable.
