I am looking for a bookshelf for a smallish room (15 m2). This will develop into a HT system over some time. The contenders are:


B&W 685

Monitor Audio RS1

Focal Chorus 806v


Focal is the costliest of the lot. These are mainly for music, but HT will be added bonus. I am considering Denon AVR 1910 or 2310.


Please let me know your opinions.

European speakers are "known" just fine here.... thank you very much. First, no one can tell you which speaker you are going to prefer. You will need to listen with your OWN ears and make your OWN decision.


Second, there are HUGE threads on EACH of those brands right here in this forum. If all you are looking for are "comments," then I'd suggest you use the thread search function and read those threads. I'm sure you'll have all the "comments" you can possibly want.

EDIT: Well, heck.... I went ahead and did your searching for you. Folks really should learn the forum search function and use it first when researching specific speakers or brands. That way we wouldnt get the same threads popping up over and over. Now, that's just IMHO, YMMV, FWIW, Just my $0.02 and all that.

quadriverfalls, thank you very much for taking the trouble to list all search queries for me. I will read through them. Yes I did some search, but I posted the question hoping to get feedback from those who have had opportunity to hear any of these speakers together.


Thanks a lot buddy.

No worries.... I was bored yesterday morning so I thought I'd help. Sometimes folks don't know to use the "advanced search" function where you can specify more specifically what you are searching for and how you want the search displayed. The general search window that pops open when you first click on search is pretty worthless IMHO and the searches are way too broad.


I perused a couple of those threads and there were lots of comments and back and forth discussions on those very speakers. So hopefully that will be helpful to you and give you the information that you seek. As for hearing those EXACT speakers "together" especially at the same time in an A/B fashion is pretty problematic at best.


Even if there is a person or two that HAS auditioned those specific speakers "together," they will hear things differently than you do. So their opinions could end up being diabolically opposite of yours. That's why it's always a good idea audition yourself and to trust your own ears.
