Focal SM9


Has anyone heard the Focal SM9? How does it sound?

I have not heard that Focal model. I have heard the Solo 6 many times. It does a good job at its price point.

You might want to look at the Neumann KH 310, which replaced the Klein+Hummel O300. I own the O300D.

You can find reviews of many studio monitors at the Sound On Sound web site.

overpriced

event opal is much better for the same price.

but, amphion one15 or one18 is again in another class for the same price.
Got a pair of the SM9 now.

Dynamics blows away even the best of the audiophile setups.
Damping/impulse response is out of this world.
Imaging is unlike anything I've ever heard, so enveloping I can hear sfx behind me, how is this possible!?

There is a hole in the frequency response, I think it's the front wall cancellation in the 200hz region, will have to investigate.
