Focal Quality in a Nearfield Monitor!Following in the wake of the extremely successful CMS 50 and CMS 65 monitors, the Focal CMS 40 offers you the same exceptional definition and precision imaging, in a smaller format that's ideal for nearfield monitoring. A pair of CMS 40 studio monitors can provide you with amazing monitoring accuracy as close as 16" away. They are absolutely ideal for use in monitoring situations where space is limited and sympathetic vibrations may cause objects and surfaces to rattle. They also make wonderful satellites for surround monitoring, and if you have a larger and better-tuned studio, a pair of CMS 40 monitors is a wonderful secondary monitoring source, allowing you to check that your mixes will translate onto smaller speakers. Whatever your setup may be, the unmistakable quality and detail of Focal CMS 40 studio monitors can help you produce better music.

Save Yourself Some Time and Therefore, $
by Christian Thomas from NYCEveryone pretty much has it covered in the reviews below. I'd just like to emphasize how much less time I spend trying to get my mixes to translate. What you do in the studio with these (assuming a de... read more [+]cent room) will translate quite well on other systems. I used to spend hours of running back and forth from system to system when I was using my M-Audio Bx5a. These are a huge improvement and worth the money. They're perfect for small desk setups like mine. close [-]

Was Skeptical. Now a believer!
by Eric W from Pittsburgh, PAThis has changed not only improved my time-to-completion 10 fold, but also, my whole mixing process.

Focal CMS-40's Are Awsome!
by Eric "E.I. Isles from New YorkWell I finally got these Focal studio monitors to complete the my reference set in my studio. They needed to be burned in so they still haven't reached their full clarity yet. Out the box, for their s... read more [+]ize, they sound amazing! The bottom frequencies coming out of these are surprising. Focal wasn't lying when they stated that these monitors sound bigger than they are. I purchased some nice 12 inch table top speaker stands for them. The build quality is excellent and the ability to adjust the sound to your room with the switches on the back is a plus.The perfect small footprint studio monitor if you have the budget. You can't go wrong with these puppies! Thanks Sweetwater for your help and customer service. close [-]

Great Flat reference monitors...these are my primary monitors
by La Forest Gray from Orlando, FLThe CMS 40's are amazingly great, I run them strictly flat and they give a true & acculturate mix every time. I suggest a 100hr. burn-in period, before actually using these for mixing, but after that... read more [+], you're good to go. There's NO-FASLE highs/mid's or lows, what you hear from these, is what others will hear...you can trust your final mixes. I use these in conduction w/ my DynAudio BM-5A's...routed through Dangerous Music-ST.

I highly recommend these... close [-]
When the time came to upgrade the monitors in my personal studio, the Focal CMS40s were a very clear choice. They had just enough bottom end to check mixes, but the clarity to mix midrange and top end. Any time someone hears them in my studio, they are shocked at the clarity in the low end, so much that they go hunting for a sub! By far the most impressive small speaker I have auditioned in my studio.
