... confused between the Focal Chorus 807 V's, the Dali Ikon 2's and MA RS1 ... looking for a bookshelf setup only....
My req is mostly for movies... confused between the Focal Chorus 807 V's, the Dali Ikon 2's and MA RS1 ... looking for a bookshelf setup only....
Appreciate your comments....
what amp are you going to be using? This will be a huge factor in going with one brand vs. another.
All excellent bookshelf speakers. I have heard them all and can confidently say that, go ahead with the 807V. This Focal combines the best of other 2 mentioned above. Infact, the order you put would be my suggestion as well!
Out of the three the Dali will be a little shy on bass but then if you are looking for HT/movies purposes, there is always the sub to take care of this.
Well if its brand i am considering Onkyo or Yamaha AVR's as I have heard they are the best for movies....
In specific the Onkyo 706 or higher and the Yamaha 863 or higher.
Heh what sub would you recommend with the Focal's ... i was thinking something from Velodyne (any recommendation on which one from this brand ) ... or should i go ahead with Focal Sub for the audition.... ?????
For Onkyo's or Yamaha's I suggest Focal > MA > Dali
Focals have excellent midrange and top end. Very exact and refined for HT.
THe MA's are slightly bright compared to the others. Also from my auditions, the low end was not that well defined for music (HT needs this much more unless you will pair with a sub).
I dont believe Dali will pair well for HT applications due to the wide dispersions. I personally think they will do better with a Denon.
All these bookshelves require 200 - 250 hrs burn in time if you believe in that.
You may also want to consider B&W, PSB to get some other options.
Heh what if i add the Usher's to this mix of great speakers... have recieved an audition request for the Usher X series... how do they stack up to the Focals.....
Heh guys appreciate all the views you guys are providing... thanks again for all the help... but my last thread was comparing Focal's with Usher's....
Has anyone compared them both head to head..... thats what i would like to know????
