Focal XS Satellite Speakers with Dock for iPod and MP3 Players

Posted

Pros: sweet, airy, fast, lively, musical sound, large soundstage - built in DAC, good built

Cons: -

Overpriced, design stuff, the most people will think at first looking at these small high-end mobile speakers. Not at all, these sounds better then my Triangle-Yamaha hifi which is twice the Focal's price used. This is a good entry level audiophile system for computer (or iPod) use. 

The computer and iPod will use their built in DAC. I compared this with B&W MM-1, Audioengine A2, A5, in detail, power, soundstage, musicality won above all.

 

I even had the opportunity to compare these Focals with a $10.000 custom hi-fi system, and with a high-end Goodmans system, of course those sounded better in every way but..  the Focal's sound were closer then i'd belive (compared to the price difference).
