Congrats and would appreciate your impressions as well. I'm exactly at the point of considering this upgrade.

Thanks

The Scalas have been breaking in and sound much better then the first day. I also got the Isoacoustic gaia on them.
I havent sold my Sopras yet so Im tempted to put them back in to do a real side by side comparison.

Main impression the biggest difference is in clarity, transparency and detail. The tweeter and midrange is also actually smoother then the Sopras but with more detail.

Using REW the bass response in my room is the exact same in volume and extension as the Sopra 3. The bass does have more detail, tighter and more thump.

Imaging is bigger. Individual sounds are bigger and the soundstage is deeper and taller.

Overall very happy with the upgrade. If you have the Sopras and like them then you will love these. If you have the sopras but would like a more neutral sound with much better clarity top to bottom and smoother treble then the upgrade is worth it.

My advice: take them off from the wheels and put them either on spikes or on isolators. After a year on wheels (not good), and another years on their spikes (better), I now have my Scala v2 on Aktyna feets (spectacularly good !). The difference is H U G E !!!

I have the Isoacoustics Gaia on mine now. Very much worth it.
