Focal Sopra Speakers now at HiFi Lounge!

Vipers

Hi All,

 

A quick announcement to let everyone know that Focal Speakers are now available to listen to at HiFi Lounge.

 

For some time now I have been keeping an eye on Focal speakers as they have always interested me as a brand, especially since partnering up with Naim, so I have patiently been waiting for them to bring out something exciting that would really grab my attention, yes the Aria’s are great speakers and fantastic value for money, but exciting, not really. But then in the September issue of HiFi+ they had a bright orange pair of Focal’s new Sopra speakers on the cover, then followed a stunning review of the Sopra No2 with a review score of 88%, needless to say my interest was peaked so a quick call later and a pair of Sopra No1′s arrived fro me to listen to. Firstly you can’t help but be impressed with the looks and finish, these are stunning looking speakers, but obviously most importantly they sound fantastic. The review picked up on how well they imaged and gave a huge soundstage, I have to agree, the soundstage is amazing, it goes far beyond the speakers, not sure how they achieve this but it is pretty special. This review can be read below, needless to say I was sold -

The Sopra range is the first range of speakers that Focal have used Naim electronics to develop them on, the new Naim 272/250 and NAP300 were used I believe, so there really is a great synergy with Naim, saying that I have also been using them on Bryston and Devialet and they sound equally as impressive. Also Focal are known for their driver design and technology and with the Sopra range they have 3 innovations that they are very proud of, NIC. TMD and IHL, I won’t go into depth here but please come in for a listen as these new Sopra’s really are something quite special.

 

Now I am going through a bit of an Orange phase at the moment so it wasn’t probably the smartest move, especially when I try to sell these on one day, but I just couldn’t resist ordering our demo No2’s in Orange, and I have to say they look absolutely stunning, well I think so anyway :-) Don’t worry though as they come in a variety of different colours.

 

So if you would like to explore the Focal range of speakers, we have Aria on demo also, please feel free to get in touch to arrange coming in for a listen, below is a link to the Focal range on our website and a few pictures.
