For sure my Guarneri can’t keep up in many ways. I had a chance to listen to the Sopra 2 and really enjoyed them but have not heard utopias. I did do an A vs B against the Magicos s5, and through the magico had tighter control throughout, bigger soundstage with similar resolution and more micro details. I was surprise there was none of the harshness/overly bright quality present in either as opposed to the new Wilsons DAW. I did feel the base did not do it for me in the Magicos S5 and paired with a sub would make an awesome setup. Now I’m told the Utopia Evo can go head to head with the S5.
Kanta and sopra have similar tweeters IAL3 I believe
I have noticed Wilsons can sound a little harsh up top for some reason even with the soft dome. Time alignment is good though. DAW is a good speaker too
Magico is solid. You can’t beat the construction.
I think you would enjoy the Focal Evo Scala in grey. It’s a good looking and sounding speaker.
Just finished with 3 days test session with Focal Scala Evo. Astonishing tweeters. Correct and neutral mid-range (not magical, but detail and spatial). Rock solid bass. 30m2 at least. I was able to temper them in my room 20m2 but it was evident that they could not show all their potential. Great for night sessions when you listen quietly. The mid-range shine much better then (with loss of details of course).
Ah... I play them with Mac M302 and C2600 upgrades with NOS tunes. All sources from Chord Dave + Blu. My degree: 8/10.
