Focal Sopra n░2 speaker
 
The new Sopra n░2 speaker from Focal looks interesting. Has anyone had the opportunity to audition this speaker?

Yes and no. My dealer has a pair of these and so far they sound very impressive. But they are not broken in yet so I have not given them any serious listening. They were being driven by a the new Musical Fidelity integrated. Which I don't think was completely broken in either.

The Lost Bears.......Hopefully you will return for a future audition after break-in with a few CD's or LP's you are intimately familiar with. I would be interested in your impressions.

The Focal Sopra n░2 has a good sensitivity at 91dB with an 8 ohm impedance. It should be relatively amplifier friendly to a wide selection of integrated amplifiers and separates.

I've seen $12999 and $13995. I'm sure someone knows for certain though.

Steve.......Your second number is the correct price, $13,995.

I thought they sounded pretty good. Gives a $30-40k speaker a run for its money...

Have you heard the Electra series?

If so, how do they compare to the 1038be's?

Yes, the Electra's are good, but these are better. Everything in Focal's line from the Aria up is good, however, they really outdid themselves with this one. If you have the extra $4k I would suggest upgrading to these. The finish is also much nicer than the Electra, but that has no bearing on the actual sound...

Highly recommended from me, as I own them :)
