I have a pair of Diablos I can’t see changing them out for quite some time. I have them paired with 2 James subs. They sound amazing together.

Recently upgraded from B&W PM1 stand-mounters to Sopra 2s. The look and sound sold me. I'm running them off a Parasound A21/JC2 BP combo.

I've enjoyed a pair of Sopra No2's since they came out, very good in the beginning, at about six months they "settled down" and sound so awesome, no plans to change!

My 3's hit around 5 months of constant use. They keep sounding better and better as well!

I'm actually thinking about an upgrade, too. I'm really waffling between the Sopra no.2, Sopra no. 3, and the SF Olympica III. I would also need to replace my center channel speaker, too. It's a really tough call.
