The Focal Aria 905 is a true ultra-compact hi-fi loudspeaker.
Composed of a 5” (13cm) woofer with Flax sandwich cones, it provides a very high-definition and natural sound. Bass is articulated and controlled thanks to the oversized magnetic motor of the midrange/bass speaker driver and to low distortion aerodynamic front vent.
For the treble register, the speaker is equipped with one TNF aluminium/magnesium inverted dome tweeter with Poron suspension for smoother sound. Their Urethane waveguide improves thus horizontal directivity and provides a more precise sound image.
EASY WALL MOUNT INSTALLATION
The enclosure’s front vent and built-in wall mount enable easy wall-mounting without constraints of the speaker.
- Compact loudspeaker
- New Flax cone

'A mature, confident performance that gets nearly everything right' (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2015)
- 'Placing the Aria 905s close to a wall adds some much-needed heft to the sound. The Focals’ mature presentation is admirable' (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2015)
- 'The Focals are ruthlessly efficient – they know exactly how each instrument should sound, how to convey a vocal nuance, how far the dynamics are allowed to soar, and how tightly controlled the entire rhythm needs to be.'(What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2015)
12 May 2015I'd been looking at the Focal 906 initially, especially with the Naim packages that were being advertised, but with a smallish room (9' x 6') I was persuaded to try these alongside the 906 and for the money, I actually preferred these. Stonkingly good value for money, theyre not that much smaller than the 906. As a completely new system, I bought mine with a Naim Uniti Qute 2 and Partington Super Dreadnought stands and Audio Affair did me a deal on them all together even though 905s werent in an advertised offer. If youre looking at bigger bookshelf speakers I really recommend giving these a try.
