Default New Utopia Speakers with Sopra tech?

Looks like Focal is updating its Utopia line to incorporate Sopra tech advancements (V2?):

I'm talking to myself in here but the literature has been updated as well:

Apparently the Scala EVO and Maestro EVO are shipping beginning in September 2017.

Also, a good excuse for Focal to put some price hikes (20%!) into effect:

Scala EVO US$40,000 (EUR32,000)

Maestro EVO US$65,000 (EUR52,000) Strangely, no longer a 3 1/2 way speaker, just a regular 3 way speaker even though the MDS system stays for the bottom woofer.

No surprise but Scala V2 and Maestro are now discontinued.
