Focal Sopra 2
@ozzy Happy holidays to you as well.  It's reassuring yet another account of how the Focals will smooth out over the course of the break in period.  And I'm enjoying the entire process as these speakers a truly amazing, so coherent, accurate, and ... 
Focal Sopra 2
Ozzy,Thanks for the info.  The speakers a new and I'm just trying to get them broken in playing them on the loud side with heavy bass tracks.  So far so good.  Soundstage is amazing, on some tracks, makes my room seem larger than it really is.  On... 
Focal Sopra 2
@ozzy Any tips on installing the footers/pucks?  Did you lay the speaker on its side or just tilt it?  Also on placement, one of my speakers is close to the wall on the side but I'm able to adjust distance of back of speaker to rear wall.  Where d... 
Focal Sopra 2
Admire the DIY skills for sure. I wouldn’t even know where to start with enclosure design and resonance and baffles, etc. Will try your method for setup. I really like the recommended starting placement as suggested by Wilson Audio. I’ll check to ...

OzzyFunny thing I’m sort of like you in that I bought my first pair of Sonus Fabers based on reviews and now buying a different model than the one auditioned.  Also I’ll be using my stereo for surround sound duties. What Center speaker are you usi... 
Focal Sopra 2
Greetings everyone.  Glad to find all these positive reviews on the Focal Sopra 2.  I definitely had that stupid grin on my face when I auditioned them.  I was impressed by the speed and detail of the sound without the any hint of harshness, which...

What are your thoughts on the magico and Wilson house sound vs the focal. I dot know if the tweeters are the same in the sopra and the kanta2, by I found very good resolution with the sopra a without it being overly bright. I’m leaning towards the... 
Focal Utopia Scala Evo
@joey_v 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, ...

Well just a heads up for anyone interested in Aries Cerat products.  On the official website, there is pricing for the NON US market.  With shipping and handling fees, the item pretty much doubles in price.  For example, the Kassandra Dac lists fo... 
A DAC that crushes price vs. performance ratio
This Dac intrigues me.  Whats the real price after shipping and handling?   
Aries Cerat

DAC Help
Hey graber, I do like my Krell and chose it to compliment the sonus faber sound and also build a hybrid system (stereo and 5.1) as the Krell 403 E is one of the better 3 channels amps available.  And I like the musical sound of the sonus and it ha...
