Equipped with best midrange drivers ever developed by Focal, Sopra n°2 pushes back the limits of sound reproduction in terms of transparency in a very compact enclosure. Indeed, unlike Utopia, which is extravagant by essence and where size is by no means a constraint, Sopra aims for maximal compactness to ensure easy integration into reasonably sized rooms.
The Best High-End Loudspeaker of the Year
Among the overwhelming critical acclaim, Sopra N°2 has been elected Best Product 2015-2016 by EISA in the "High-End Loudspeaker" category.
The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) is a major event where the most prominent European journalists of specialised audio and video magazines gather to reward the most innovative and the best products in each category (Home Theatre Audio, In-Car Electronics, Photography, Home Theatre Display & Video).
Beyond Aesthetics and Shape
The Sopra line is destined for the most passionate sound enthusiasts. Its design favours performance, whilst bringing together the qualities expected of an object which will be integrated into very elegant interiors and décors. Lacquered or bloodwood finishes are associated to noble materials to create an elegant line. Substantial efforts were made to give the front a tidy appearance, particularly around the speaker drivers, to iron out any aspects which could afflict the acoustics or the appearance.
Made in France
Sopra's cabinets are designed and manufactured in their own cabinet-making facility in Bourbon-Lancy; the drivers and tweeters in Saint-Etienne - all are manufactured in France for optimal product control and the guarantee of a unique sound quality. Finally, assembly and quality control is done at Focal to ensure a better quality control.
