Focal Aria 906 Bookshelf Speaker (Pair)
BOOKSHELF 2-WAY LOUDSPEAKER
The Aria 906 is faithful to the DNA of the Aria range: refined high-end acoustics combined with excellent perceived value thanks to the use of noble materials. This 2-way loudspeaker allows users to enjoy all the qualities of the Flax cone: neutrality, presence and finesse. The intention was a return to the very essence of acoustics for those who are passionate about music. F cone is characterized by their natural sound, with low colouration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass. The result is a more homogeneous sound, improved dynamics. Aria offers a classic and modern design.
The Aria 906 is recommended for rooms measuring from 160ft2 (15m2) and from a listening distance of 8ft (2.5m).
PORON SUSPENSION FOR SOFT TREBLE
For the TNF tweeter, we have brought two major evolutions to our aluminium/magnesium tweeter. The suspension between the dome and its bracket uses Poron, a material with shape memory.
This suspension method is directly derived from the famous Utopia Beryllium tweeter, making it possible to reduce distortion by a factor of three in the 2-3kHz range, where the human ear has very great sensitivity.
The inverted dome’s spatial characteristics and very low directivity already make it greatly superior to the conventional domes used by our competitors. This guarantees an incredibly stable sound stage which makes the listening position much less critical.
FLAX CONE, SO ORIGINAL
The flax cones are made in France exclusively by Focal since 2013. With its original design, the cone is entirely oriented towards acoustic performance. They are made of high quality flax fiber enclosed by two thin layers of glass fibre. Flax cones are characterized by their natural sound, with low colouration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass.
The lightness of the fibre satisfies the criteria of high internal damping, high velocity and high flexural rigidity. Flax is twice as light as fibreglass because the fibre is hollow. It also has very low elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich structure.

Autathya Dama –
I’ve had this speaker for about a month now and I’m extremely happy with it. It’s beautifully constructed, sounds fantastic and is very easy to pair with other speakers for a great stereo or surround sound experience. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
