Focal Professional Studio Monitors

Focal CMS50 and CMS65 Studio Monitors at AES NYC, Oct. '09

Focal Professional Introduces The CMS50 and CMS65 studio monitors at their booth at AES booth to Sound Pure. The CMS line is the latest arrival in the Focal Professional range. With a smaller footprint and lower price tag than the SM6 (and certainly the SM11 line) CMS is particularly dedicated to postproduction studios, small listening rooms, radio studios and home studios. The CMS 50 is the most compact monitoring loudspeaker of all the Focal Professional range. Its design permits listening from 50cm away, while still keeping the possibility of the monitors at a great distance from one another without damaging the soundstage. The 5 mid-woofer reaches down to 55Hz, while offering a controlled bass and a totally linear midrange. The CMS 65 is the reference of the CMS line. On its introduction at AES in San Francisco 2008, it immediately received the Excellence Award from the magazine Pro Audio Review due to its amazing size/price/performance ratio. Its extended response at 45Hz (-3dB) allows an installation without a subwoofer. Treble definition, midrange transparency and control of the midbass and bass registers are all key points of the CMS 65. The outstanding stability of the tonal balance, even at very high sound level, ensures very high quality when mastering.

Manufacturer's Description from Focal

The design of the CMS 50 permits a listening position from 50cm away, while still keeping the possibility of the monitors at a great distance from one another without damaging the soundstage.

The 5” mid-woofer reaches down to 55Hz, while offering a controlled bass and a totally linear midrange. The midrange register of the CMS 50 has unequalled neutrality in its price range.

The Al-Mg inverted dome tweeter offers outstanding dynamics and a degree of definition in the treble that allow precise measurement of reverb and other effects which are normally very difficult to assess.
