very good speaker
mariusluk, 17.08.2017
very good speaker, i have also focal CMS 40. and comparing them to shape 50, shape 50 have a lot of clarity and bass but they sound unnatural. maybe i am used to the sound of cms40 but listing to a jazz concert I've attended the cms 40 sound was closer to the reality even if the shape have a lot more fine detail.

Super pregnant

I use a pair of Shape 50 for my home studio, to succeed Yahama HS5.
Obviously the difference is obvious: the Focal are much more balanced, especially the much better bass, finally we are simply not in the same price range.
The bass membranes on the sides are a great idea, it simplifies life for placement in home studio.
The Focal are very beautiful, and we say what we want it increases the pleasure of listening. The linen membrane, the wood look and the curved shape are very successful even if only aesthetically.
The adjustable screw feet are a good idea, even if strangely they float a little and do not remain vertical, which breaks a little general aesthetics. In any case it avoids the purchase of inclined supports, more artisanal rigging, or the purchase of a desk stack at the right height!
The automatic standby is double-edged, personally I am not convinced. Especially since for one reason, one of my two speakers does not go to sleep, perhaps because of a tiny breath of residual from another device in my studio? almost inaudible breath.
And to turn the speakers back on, you have to send a loud enough sound to properly adjust to avoid any inconvenience. Fortunately between the lighting of the control diode and the arrival of the sound there is a small delay, just enough to readjust the level if necessary.
Personally when I leave my studio I cut the switches to the power strips, so I do not really have the utility of the standby.
In any case I find the sound very good, very successful aesthetics and that's the main thing.
