What customers say about "Audio"
Focal Aria 906 Bookshelf Speaker - Pair (Dark Walnut)
  • The sound they do offer is spacious and mellow. Crank it up and you won’t encounter bass bloat or piercing treble.
  • They're also extremely easy to power. They sound great playing any genre.
  • Very musical sound. Better for music than for home theater. Lower low frequency roll off than expected.
  • They speakers offer a full deep rich sound. They are not too bright. They offer very good sounding punchy bass that keeps up nicely.
  • The sound was a bit muddy and lacked much imaging and detail.

What customers say about "Features"
Focal Aria 906 Bookshelf Speaker - Pair (Dark Walnut)
  • My dark walnut pair has a smooth, slightly grippy feel to the texture that feels wonderful!
  • Build quality is slightly better all-around. They weigh 1 extra pound, have a more seamless cabinet, use magnetic grills and have a nice touch of glass on top.
  • Fantastic bass, fantastic build quality and materials. Accurate vocals.
  • They're crisp and clear without being harsh, and the bass extension is low without getting muddy. They're built extremely well and the walnut finish is gorgeous.
  • MDF and contact paper don't age well. These will eventually fall apart like all cheap speakers.
