Focal Aria 936 3 way floor-standing loudspeaker
Focal Aria 936 3 way floor-standing loudspeaker with flax bass drivers.
What we Say:
The Focal Aria 936 is next to the top model in the Aria Range. It is a large three way floor standing loudspeaker. The cabinet has a downward firing reflex port that allows the four main drivers to fill your room with deep controlled bass and is a relatively easy load to drive.
The Focal Aria 936 offers a big open dynamic sound with deep controlled bass. It partners well with most electronics and is the next to top model in the Aria range. Focal make all of their own drive units and often supply them to other loudspeaker manufacturers. All of their products are handmade in France. We think that Focal have done an excellent job with the Aria range. They work well with the Naim Uniti range as well as a wide range of other equipment.
To conclude the Focal Aria 936 is a great value for money all rounder, it offers large scale detailed sound capable of filling a large room yet is easy to drive. Finish is a choice between high gloss black and walnut.

What they say:
3-WAY FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKER
The Aria 936 is a 3-way loudspeaker featuring an elegant design and a small footprint. Very linear and with impressive dynamics, thanks to these 3 woofers, it is naturally intended for listening in stereo for monitoring-type activities. This loudspeaker is also ideal for setting up a spectacular Home Cinema system.
The intention was a return to the very essence of acoustics for those who are passionate about music. F cone are characterized by their natural sound, with low coloration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass. The result is a more homogeneous sound, improved dynamics. Aria 936 offers a classic and modern design.
Appropriate for rooms measuring from 270ft2 (25m2) and from a listening distance of 10-12ft (3m – 3.5m).
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.
The flax cones are made in France exclusively by Focal since 2013. With their original design, the cone are entirely oriented towards acoustic performance. They are made of high quality flax fiber enclosed by two thin layers of glass fiber. Flax cones are characterized by their natural sound, with low coloration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass.
The lightness of the fiber satisfies the criteria of high internal damping, high velocity and high flexural rigidity. Flax is twice as light as fiberglass, because the fiber is hollow. It also has very low elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich structure.
