Focal Shape 50
Shape 50 is the versatile monitoring loudspeaker par excellence. It can be used from 30 away (80cm), and has extended low Hz response (50Hz) considering its compact design.
Thanks to this design and to the numerous settings, this monitor is ideal for rooms measuring less than 130ft2 (12m2).
The three monitors are all made in France and integrate five innovations to maximise acoustic transparency. Designed to meet the needs of nearfield monitoring, Shape monitors combine an ingenuous design and numerous settings optimised for the acoustics of small listening rooms.
These innovations provide remarkable acoustic transparency. These new work tools distinguish themselves through the wide and extremely precise stereo image. The bass register is articulated and controlled. The lower mid-range and mid-range benefit from extreme neutrality, and without any masking effects, making equalisation of these essential registers much easier. Finally, the new tweeter is what's at the source of the very high definition. It efficiently reveals any hissing, and it's also very precise in the very high end.

Précision et claireté
Ces petits haut-parleurs ont beaucoup d'équilibre et de précision pour le mixage. On peut mixer longtemps sans se fatiguer les oreilles et ils offrent une excellente image stéréophonique. J'aurais aimé qu'ils aient juste un peu plus de puissance.
