One of the reasons these speakers are so brilliant, is that they are physically large compared to a bookshelf design - please check dimensions and make sure you are definitely happy with a speaker this size before purchasing.
These floorstanders are supplied with adjustable spikes, which hold the speaker absolutely rigid, giving the best sound. The spikes actually cause LESS damage to carpets than castors or rubber feet, because a spike passes through the carpet pile and leaves no mark. Spikes should still be used on wooden floors - if you are worried about floor damage, simply use spike protector discs (which can be purchased cheaply from Amazon) or even a five pence coin, under each spike.

Big Brother to Focal's excellent Aria 936 speakers

The 948 is the big brother of Focal's ultra popular Aria range of speakers, featuring the same fantastic design that has given the Aria range such a strong cult following in a very short period of time, with rave reviews from What Hi-Fi and AV Forums plus a very fast uptake from customers.

The 948 looks set to follow in the footsteps of the excellent 936, because it retains all that is so brilliant about its 'baby brother', but takes it a whole stage further, with a genuine 3-way design, featuring bigger bass drivers and a wider cabinet, resulting in an even more dynamic presentation, with increased power and scale. The 948 is one of those speakers that will fill virtually any size room with a gloriously musical, realistic presentation. It just feels so natural and 'right', regardless of the type of music being played.

Visually, the most striking feature of this speaker is its beautiful, ultra rigid 'non parallel' (i.e. low resonance) curved side cabinet walls, clad in gorgeous Prime Walnut or High Gloss Black finishes.  Housed within the cabinet are the equally striking 8.25 inch bass drivers and 6.5 inch mid-range driver, all of which are constructed out of flax, plus a high quality inverted dome tweeter.  The exquisite styling is perfectly complemented by a luxurious leather front baffle, a glass cabinet topper, magnetic grilles and an attractive, ultra rigid acoustically decoupled plinth. In use, the 948s sound as gorgeous as they look, generating a huge, all-encompassing soundstage, plus tremendous weight/attack.  These speakers are incredibly easy to drive for a big floorstander, so they actually sound great with virtually any amplification. However, put them with top flight British electronics, like Naim, Arcam, Cyrus, or Roksan and they will sing like the angels!
