    Focal Sopra 3 in Light Oak - photos

    I was able to take some photos of the Sopra 3 in Light Oak. This is a stunning finish and flies completely under the radar. They're even better looking in person.

    Wow, some of the best looking speakers I have seen. I can imagine they have a high WAF.

    Re: Focal Sopra 3 in Light Oak - photos

    Can't quite tell from the lighting - is the front panel pure white or a bit creamy? Our Sopra No.3's are pure white, which is great in our room full of primary colors. With the wood I think pure white might be a bit too stark for most people. I can definitely attest to the high WAF of this model. I wasn't going to spend anywhere near this much, but was strongly encouraged to get these over several other competitors due to looks. The sound ain't bad either...

    No, it's a BDI media console.

    The front is slightly off white. Definitely not beige. Most people would think it was white unless it was right next to a stark white object.

    Kanta No 2 offers a baffle color called "Ivory Mat". Maybe that is the color of the Sopra baffle.

    I can't confirm, but I've been told Ivory on the Kanta is actually darker than this finish.
