Compact and muscular, Sopra N ° 1 is a technological synthesis. With the magnetic circuit “NIC”, the “TMD” suspension of the woofer-medium and the “IHL” load of the tweeter, it is a true “demonstrator” of the contribution to the quality of the listening of the technologies launched with Sopra.

Product Description

Firstly, the very low level of distortion gives an incredible purity to listening with a very advanced definition and a spectacular spatialization specific to the loudspeakers library …
And beyond this seductive first impression, what strikes is the texture and softness of the sound material. There is “flesh”, the sound is pulpy with a serious register full and articulated. Precision is not artificial (not only limited to high frequencies). Overall coherence and harmonic richness bring an astonishing understanding of music.

Sopra boxes are manufactured in France, in the workshops of our cabinet-making in Bourbon-Lancy with the same methods as for Utopia. The front panel uses the “Gamma Structure” principle, 69 mm thick machined in the mass of an assembly of MDF panels. It brings by its density the inertia necessary to offer an inert mechanical reference frame for an optimal definition. The interior of the cabinet does not have a side wall parallel to it. Small Helmholtz resonators have been added in the lower part to compensate for standing waves in the vertical direction. For the base of the enclosure, the glass was retained as a material in order to offer, through the tips, a coupling to the ground with the highest possible propagation speed, thus eliminating any halo effect in the bass.
