I agree with your observations

I am trying to optimally match my Scala v2 with electronics. Candidates:

- Esoteric C03 + A03 + K01

- Leben 600cs

- Audia Flight Strumento No1/No4

- Naim?

- Vitus SS-010

...


How would C03/A03 match with Scala? The room is 13' x 25'. I am currently using Fatman Carbon 25W amplifier and it is a lot of juice for my ears. I like to listen orchestral, but also piano solo, modern jazz

I just heard Naim NAP 300 with N272. The sound was sublime.

I had my Scala V2 with Naim 500DR,N272,555PS-DR and Superluming full loom

I have arrived at this issue recently.

Out of these, what would you guys recommend?
Focal Sopra No. 3
Focal Scala v2
B&W 802d3

I have paradigm sig s8v2 in my smallish room 12 x 16 x 8 ft. Looking to upgrade. You think a scala would work in this room? I do like bass and actually run 2x 18 inch V1800 PSA subs.

Guessing its between the 802D3 and scala v2 there.

EDIT: Also what about the Scala V2 vs Revel salon 2?

Also what are the differences with EM and the EM Evo line? Anyone compare these? How about a maestro evo vs stella non-evo ?

Definitively the Scala v2.
it plays in another league than the Sopra 3

It is also "better" than the B&W, but this is another brand and a question of taste!

I have narrowed down my options to all Focal at this point.

- Focal Scala v2 (best "budget" option in my case)
- Focal Maestro III
- Focal Scala Evo (although the price is higher than both of the above)

My ranking would be
- Scala v2
- Scala Evo
- Maestro III

Like this, you save money for the other components!

I just ordered Scala EVO to replace a pair of Sopra 3 ive had for 2 years. Haven't heard them but love the Sopras so Im not worried about the sound. Have to sell the Sopras now. Cant wait to compare.

Scala evo showed up last week. Been breaking them in. One surprise was how much shorter the Scala is from the Sopra 3. The spec sheets all say they are about the same height at 49 inches. Without feet the Sopras highest point in the back is 51" and the Scala is 47".
The Scalas are much heavier and I love the wheels on the bottom.
