The CMS 50 is a compact monitoring loudspeaker that is ideal for smaller control rooms. 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 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.

Comments about FOCAL CMS 50 Studio Monitor:

These are some of the best speakers on the market. Focal is a brand that has been in the high end speaker market for some time, and everywhere they go they make a serious impression. The CMS series is no compromise to this quality standard. Really incredible speakers, really incredible brand. You have to hear them to believe them. They sound extremely natural, like the music is playing right in front of you. And the space and sound stage is so much more than you would ever expect from speakers in this price range. Do yourself a favor and give them a try! I haven't heard one person dislike these speakers yet. There's a reason for that. GC bring us more Focals!! :D
