The Focal Sopra Series & Naim Audio Amplification! A match made in audio heaven!
A Room like this Deserves the Focal Sopra No.3!
The longest standing loudspeaker of the line, Sopra N°3 perfectly combines dynamics, space optimisation and harmonic richness.
With its two 8¼” (21cm) woofers, this loudspeaker offers solid, rich and perfectly defined bass for music lovers looking for optimum performance. Despite its reasonable size, it will reveal its full potential in rooms measuring up to 860 ft2 (80 m2).
Sopra clearly inaugurates a new era for the “Premium High End” by taking into account new performance criteria. Compact, modern, a pure design, character… all these are essential factors to ensure perfect integration into your interior.
Equipped with best midrange drivers ever developed by Focal, with the NIC and TMD technologies, Sopra 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 design agency Pineau & Le Porcher designed Sopra with one rule: no sacrifice of performance to aesthetics. The Sopra line is destined for the most passionate sound enthusiasts. Its design favours performance, whilst exceptional materials associated with different lacquered finishes or wood finishes in oak (Light Oak and Black Oak) with High Gloss varnish for a radiant shine bringing even more elegance and warmth to your home décor.
Substantial efforts were made to give the front a tidy appearance to iron out any aspects which could afflict the acoustics or the appearance. Sopra’s very structure is articulated around the intermediate section. This injected polyurethane component allows for the upper and lower cabinets to be inclined for the “Focus Time” (acoustic convergence of the channels).
No compromises were made for the Amplification of these beautiful speakers (Naim NAP 300DR) or for the reproduction of music. The mighty Naim Audio NDX 2 was used to provide the best out of the streaming services the customer chose.
Even though the Focal Sopra No.3 are very strong and capable in the bass department, the customer simply wanted more. Step up, SVS! We added 1 x PB-4000 and 1 x SB-16 Ultra which were tuned and calibrated to distribute exciting, accurate and devastating (if needed!) bass throughout the room! The customer could not be happier!
