Yes, I’ve tried both. do some reading on here as well. The trio mid range is focals newest. flag ship design. The sm9 felt recessed there and hifi. Sm9 is a glorious sound though. When something is that analytical in the highs and recessed in the mids, and smeared in the lows it feels like a guess work to get the impact right... I don’t like relying on math, I’d rather feel it and get it right off vibe but anytime I went somewhere else it would be wrong. Also Tracks I made came out boxy as opposed to avantone Abby, barefoot, 708, etc. Sm9 is also discontinued now. Full disclosure; I’m selling my trio. I’m going to try a couple more and possibly downgrade back to speakers that aren’t as analytical
