As a Sopra owner I can say I’m very happy with them. I could eventually see my self switching to KEF’s Reference series one day. They are definitely worth a listen before you purchase.

I was at a Focal dealer yesterday and they just setup a pair of Kantas with a Naim Uniti unit (not sure if it was the star or nova). I must say it sounded amazing to me...better than the Sopras with C52/MC452 that they had setup as well. The Naim/Kanta setup wasn't even broken un as they had just set it up the night before.
The dealer had told me that the Kanta and the new Naim all in ones were designed to work very well together...and Im inclined to believe him. The system sounded so quick and engaging without having any of the excessive forwardness/brightness that some Naim and Focal systems I have heard in the past have.
Note that I am not into critical listening, and listening to audiophile tracks...with the classic rock and classical tracks I listened to the Naim/Kanta system just drew me in and made me want to listen more than the MC/Sopra system did. The price and simplicity is a lot better with that system as well. All in all I was very impressed...if this is the new house sound for Naim/Focal then they should do very well!
