Focal Sopra No2 Speakers
The Focal Sopra No2 a supremely well finished loudspeaker. made in their custom cabinet facility in Bourbon-Lancy, France also used for their ultimate Utopia series. They are available in 5 beautiful finishes, Black gloss , Carrara White, Electric Orange and two new finishes Black Oak (lacquer finish) and Light Oak also in a gloss lacquer finish.
These really are an amazing set of speakers both in there stunning design and with their astonishingly dynamic sound, but at the same time delivering a natural open soundstage effortlessly, with texture, transparency and smoothness, with fast and articulated bass.
Three technical innovations help to achieve this reference level of performance, the first of which is the "Neutral Inductance Circuit" or NIC. This bit of tech stabilises the magnetic field within the drive units resulting in much lower distortion effects.
The second is a "Tuned Mass Damper" to control resonance within the mid-range driver. This consists of two tubular rings on the actual driver suspension and reduces cone deformation which is a major cause of distortion.
The final part to this technological trio is "Infinite Horn Loading" for the tweeter. The Beryllium unit designed by Focal is so light and rigid the main technical limitation of the cone is the build up of air pressure behind it inside the speaker cabinet. The solution was to build it into its own small internal cavity and then connect that to the outside world via a horn structure. This has the effect of allowing the tweeter to operate as if it were mounted in a massive cavity reducing distortion by 30% and allowing maximum definition from the design.
