Focal Sopra No.1 stand mount loudspeaker
Focal Sopra No.1
What we Say:
The Focal Sopra No.1 is the smallest model in the Sopra Range. It is a large 2 way stand mount loudspeaker. The cabinet has a rear firing reflex port that gives performance from a relatively compact cabinet. The Sopra range draws heavily from the Utopia range in both styling and technology. The baffle is angled to time align drivers towards the listener. The Sopra No.1 has a bespoke stand available. The speaker can be bolted directly to it for greater stability.
The Focal Sopra No.1 offers a big open dynamic sound with controlled bass. It partners well with most electronics but will benefit from high quality source and amplification such as that from Naim. Focal make all of their own drive units and often supply them to other loudspeaker manufacturers. All of their products are handmade in France. We think that Focal have done an excellent job with the Kanta range. They work well with the Naim Uniti and classic ranges as well as a wide range of other equipment.
The cabinet is available in wide range of high gloss paint finishes and also real wood veneers.

What they say:
2-WAY HIGH-END BOOKSHELF LOUDSPEAKER
Compact and powerful, Sopra N°1 is a concentration of technological innovation. It features ‘NIC’ magnetic circuit, ‘TMD’ surrounds for the midrange woofer and Infinite Horn Loading (IHL) of the tweeter. It is a true ‘demonstrator’, corroborating the contribution of the new technologies implemented on Sopra. First, the very low distortion gives it incredible clarity and very high definition combined with the spectacular spatialisation typical of bookshelf loudspeakers…
Beyond this attractive first impression, what’s astonishing is the texture and smoothness of its sound. It provides a solid, ‘fleshy’ sound with full and articulated bass. Precious is by no means artificial, nor is the limited to the treble. The overall coherence and harmonic richness gives the listener a surprising understanding of the music.
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.
