Did a little shopping today looking for Focal 800 series at a local dealer and got to hear a pair of these puppies hooked up to a Cary CAD 120S MKII tube amp and Cary CD player. I am forever ruined by the experience. It was absolutely amazing! I have never heard better sound. Now I understand what all the "audiophiles" are talking about. It was as if the speakers dissapeared and I was listening to a live performance. Good stuff...


I am tossing my Polks into the trash tomorrow!



Hoping, that with the Focals, I will get at least 80% of what I heard with the ProAc/Cary amp combo...


Some of you guys with deep pockets, should really give the ProAc speakers a listen.

Agree, the ProAc speakers I've heard are wonderful.


Was it the ProAc Studio 140 MK2 you heard? Depending on the specific Focal model you chose, you may be able to pick up a pair of used Studio 140 ($1000-$1500).


Here are new Studio 140 MK2 , asking $2400.

Hey Steven, yeah it was the 140 Mk2s. Dealer was asking over $3,000 for a new pair. I think the Cary amp was another $5,000.
