After some careful consideration, we have decided to pick up Focal, previously called JM Lab. I know their Utopias are considered a reference speaker worldwide. I would love some feedback on this speaker line from all you owners or perspective owners. Here in Southern California there seems to be a shortage of quality retailers that work with the product line.
I recently heard the Profile 918's at Tweeter the other day. They are gorgeous looking, and they sounded good, but I felt they wanted more. But, I attribute it to the Denon receiver, which are definately not the best for demonstrating a speakers performance. Hopefully our Parasound, Bryston, and Arcam gear will open them up.
I am interested in all your views on not only the Profile line, but also the Electra 1000 line, and beyond.
The new Chorus 800 line looks to be very promising as well. Thanks!
