FS?: Focal/JMlab Chorus 706s bookshelf speakers and stands (pics added!)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I'm not entirely sure if I still want to sell these, but let's say that I am curious to see if anyone would be interested.

I will take pics later to post, but they are in phenomenal condition EXCEPT for one small (~1/8") mark on the top of one where a fragile vintage Christmas ornament fell on it and somehow took a tiny piece of the veneer with it. Weird.

They are great speakers, the best I have ever owned, and I would be a bit sad to see them go, but I won't be able to do any speaker listening for at least the next two years (if not more), and will be focusing on headphones in the mean time. Plus... I think I'm going to start saving up for a certain... ahem... "ring"... and the extra funds may help speed along that process!

I will include the stands that I bought for them (24", I believe, but I will make sure), which have a sturdy spiked base, and can be filled with sand/shot. Exceptional stands for these speakers. I'll take pics of them, too.

The Focals are biwireable/biampable, and have the following specs:

# 2-way bass reflex bookshelf wall mounted
# Speakers: 6-1/2" Polyglass mid-bass, 1" TNC inverted dome tweeter
# Frequency response (+/- 3dB): 55Hz-28kHz
# Sensitivity (2,8V/1 m): 90dB
# Nominal impedance: 8 ohms
# Crossover frequencies: 2400Hz
# Maximal power handling with musical program: 80W
# Dimensions (HxWxD):
# 370x220x250mm 14.6x8.7x9.8inch
# Weight: 9.6kg (21.1lbs)


These are only a couple years old, and were $500 brand new, for just the speakers, and the stands were $120 new, I think. I'm asking $350 for the speakers and stands, which is an extremely fair deal.

Pre-weekend bump.

Okay, here are some pics.

Also, like I mentioned, this price is very, very good, so it is firm. No low-ball offers, please.

I measured the veneer nick, and it is very small: less than 1/8" in its longest dimension, and about 1/16" in the other direction. You can see it on the left in the last picture.

Oh, and I do take PayPal, but if you decide to use PayPal, I will ask you for an additional 3% to cover the fee. Thanks.

Manual and original binding post jumpers are included.

Top of the speaker with the tiny nick. Can you see it? Strain your eyes hard!

I'm interested in the speakers.  Are they still available? The asking price of $350 is not a problem.  Please contact me ASAP at rdm01@bell.net.
