it's not really anything similar.. just because 2 cars drive, doesn't maker them similar. these are not low end passive speakers but a pretty high end powered speakers. very different animal, very different use.


and yes, this is slickdeals, not cheap deals. as in, slick prices on great products Smilie

Audio is subjective. I've collected high end audio for a long time. Focal has never done anything special for me. They are a great brand, just not my preference. I'd suggest anyone looking at a higher end pair to find a local dealer and have a listen for yourself to decide if they're right for you. No one here will be able to tell you that.

Prices posted are for single speakers, not pairs, from what I can see.

What is up with Slickdeals lately? Are these really "deals"? I mean are these really better than getting 2 monitor polk 30's or 40's or equivalent brands?

These are like 3x the price.

The link posted ( https://www.adorama.com/foa652.ht...flaid62905 ) takes me to a page that says $629 for a SINGLE speaker.

I've been using CMS50's for past three years as computer speakers. They sound really good (must use better source than just your average Spotify streaming) and so wanted to get another set, likely the CMS60's, for another room. But, I'm debating whether to pull the trigger on the lower clearance prices of these, or go for their new replacements, the Shape series.

Anyone ever listen to the Shape monitors and can provide feedback?

Is there a working link for the pair of CMS60's? The link in the original post brings up the pair of CMS50's.
