    Focal Shape 40 or Shape 50 any interest?

    Anyone interested in the measurements of affordable Focal monitors, Shape 40 and Shape 50? I think they are a very good basis for a great system. Amplifiers are AB Class, DSP-free Active Crossover. Hi Pass Filter 45/60/90hz 12db/oct. I have measurements of Shape 65 and they are very good.

    Suggestions 5 inch monitors

    Hi there, For my hobby I have been listening to headphones a lot. But ofcourse, this is not always wanted. For my student room, which is about 12 m2, I want some small speakers. They will probably be stated on my desk, so monitors are the best choice, I think. And because of the size, I...
