7Below, the reason I compared it with a well regarded floorstander instead of another bookshelf is because there is no way the Diablo can reproduce full range music like those guys. We don't even need to discuss character or taste, it's just physics. This automatically turns the Diablo into an overpriced product. But Focal has always been like that even with the Chorus line. I bought my 806V 50% because of the nice room decoration that it is. The Diablo is certainly one of the coolest looking bookshelves in the market. So you're paying an extra 150% for aesthetics. Or you can get the Usher that's also very nice looking and spend the rest on a nice painting.
