Focal Electra 1007 Be Speakers Review on Computer Audiophile

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

Computer Audiophile has reviewed the Focal Electra 1007 Be bookshelf speakers ($4,500/pair). These are two-way bass reflex designs with 6.5″ mid-bass drivers and 1″ pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeters (photo).

Reviewer Chris Connaker was impressed with the build quality:

Good looks and good sound can be an elusive combination unless the product designers are very skilled. Matching a Beryllium tweeter with the aluminum face plate, piano gloss lacquer, and beautiful wood finish is a winning combination for Focal.

Chris also was impressed with the sound:

From the hard punch of a drum solo to the painfully accurate vocals of Lauryn Hill to legendary rock and roll to relaxing, non-fatiguing piano, the Focal Electra 1007 Be bookshelf loudspeaker can transparently reproduce a very wide range of music despite its small footprint.
