New Focals Praised by Reviewers
At RMAF Gold Sound had the U.S premier of the new Focal 948 speaker. STEREOPHILE praised the naturalness of its sound. We're the only Colorado dealer stocking Focal's new 906 bookshelf & 926 tower speakers, as well as the 948. ABSOLUTE SOUND calls the 906 "Terrific". The 900 speakers have quickly become our most popular quality speakers. European magazines have awarded the 926 & 948 "Product of the Year" awards. The 948, the largest & best Aria speaker, is $5000/pair. The 926, the smallest & most affordable Aria tower, is $3299/pair.
Customers say that the $5000/pr Focal 948 has far better imaging, bass response & dynamics than other stores' $10,000 speakers. People have traded in late model B&W, Paradigm & Klipsch towers for new Focal bookshelf speakers.
All Aria speakers feature better sounding drivers with flax-cone woofers & midranges, plus new aluminum-magnesium tweeters, reducing distortion by 50%. Arias are 8 ohms & about 92db efficient, or four times as efficient as many competitors. You can use solid state amps or tube amps, like our 35W/ch Prima Luna amps. The Arias have sleek, attractive styling with black lacquer or walnut wood veneer.
The new Focal speakers have higher efficiency & deeper bass than many competitors. Almost every Focal speaker has 90db or more efficiency. Some new B&W speakers are only 84db efficient. Most Focals are 4 to 5 times more efficient. The $1899 Focal 726 floorstanding speaker has 91.5db efficiency & 49hz bass response. A similar-sized $2200 B&W has less than half the efficiency & only 69hz bass response .
The $1500 Focal 906 bookshelf speaker [on sale for $1100/pr] has higher efficiency, 10hz deeper bass response & is less than half the size of a B&W for $400 more. The Focal 906 bookshelf has 35hz deeper bass response & is smaller than a Klipsch for $1,000 more.
People have traded in many B&W, Paradigm & Klipsch speakers for Focal. Focal has higher efficiency & deeper bass in the same size or smaller cabinets.

GOLD SOUND is the exclusive Denver area dealer for QUAD, ROKSAN, THORENS, VINCENT, VPI & WHARFEDALE.
The STEREOPHILE A rated Parasound Halo JC1 mono-block power amps are acclaimed for state-of-the-art sound & tremendous value, outperforming many more expensive amps.
We now have on display the VPI Classic turntable, plus Focal's new 714V & 716 towers. The speakers sound magnificent: deep & wide imaging, beautifully extended bass & silky smooth midrange & high end. They're 90db efficient, so even low-powered tube amps will work fine & they'll handle 300 watts.
KIMBER-KABLE has highly rated speaker, interconnect & digital cable. KIMBER receives many recommendations from the U.S. & European audiophile press. "Cleaner, quicker sound, transparent."
MARANTZ is our most popular stereo amp & receiver. They have great reliability & include remote controls, phono preamps, pre-out/main-ins & A/B speakers switches. The receiver also has three video inputs. HI-FI CHOICE chose the top hi-fi components of all time, including two Marantz CD players.
PARASOUND stereo products include the high value Halo amp & preamps for under $1000 each, up to the JC1 400 to 1200 watt top-rated mono block power amps. Parasound has always been a great value. Parasound amplifiers compare favorably with compering models for many times their price.
QUAD speakers & amps are consistently top-rated by ABSOLUTE SOUND, STEREOPHILE & European magazines. ABSOLUTE SOUND recommends many Quad speakers. Customers regularly trade in other high end speakers, including B&W and Sonus Faber, since they prefer Quad's superior sound. HI-FI CHOICE chose the top hi-fi components of all time, including Quad electrostatic speakers, a preamp & power amp. Quad is the only company chosen for superior electronics & speakers. "Quad's purity & accuracy will spoil you. Quad amps set a benchmark". ABSOLUTE SOUND.
YAMAHA stereo receivers start under $300. All Yamaha stereo receivers include remote controls, phono preamps & outputs for four speakers & a subwoofer.
Most speaker companies buy their parts from a few generic manufacturers & put these in a cabinet. All our speaker companies design, engineer & manufacture every component in their own factory. You get better sounding, more durable speakers of higher value, since you're not paying for multiple companies' markups. We choose our speakers for superior sound quality & best value, not for the biggest advertising budget. Over the past few years, we've tried over a dozen U.S. & European speaker brands that didn't pass our high standards. Most are now available at local competing stores.
JM exclaimed, "My friends who bought from other high-end stores couldn't believe how much better my Focal speakers sounded. Focal, Europe's largest speaker manufacturer, makes some of the finest speakers in the world. Absolute Sound recommends 6 Focals, the most of any speaker. Gold Sound has 12 different models on display, including bookshelfs, towers, center & subwoofer.
MONITOR AUDIO has made high value, high-quality speakers in England for over 30 years. Their unique engineering includes drivers made of C-CAM, ceramic-coated aluminum / magnesium developed for jet engine blades. Benefits include increased efficiency & clarity without the harshness of other metal drivers.
YAMAHA & THORENS
Models include mini-monitors less than 4" square, bookshelf speakers, towers, home theater models & subwoofers. The exquisite real wood veneer cabinet finishes include walnut, oak & cherry.
WHARFEDALE has made quality speakers for over 70 years. They're exceptional values, outperforming speakers of many times their low cost. Wharfedales have Kevlar or carbon fiber cones, die cast aluminum frames, phase plugs, silk dome tweeters & curved cabinets. Wharfedale has received PRODUCT OF THE YEAR AWARDS, for bookshelfs, subs & floor-standing speakers. HI-FI CHOICE includes Wharfedale's Diamond speakers among the top hi-fi of all time.
PERFECT VISION calls Wharfedale "Best of Show" & "costs half of what you'd expect". Reviewers exclaim, "HI-FI BARGAIN of the YEAR, an absolute steal; sensational; superb". At the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, STEREOPHILE called Wharfedales,"Wonderful sounding; great highs, ear-opening depth & three dimensionality & excellent midrange. There wasn't a hint of strain; the sound was sensational enough to live for."
