However, in addition to great performance, Focal makes sure their speakers look as good as they sound. The Sopra No2’s, which were introduced to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Focal/Naim partnership, already look great with their standard finishes, but Focal has decided to add a little more visual impact with two new finishes: Brown Concrete and Black Ostrea.
The Brown Concrete finish is an enhancement of the finish created for Focal/Naim. With its metallic bronze front panel and its chocolate-colored, concrete side panels, this loudspeaker seamlessly blends into any interior. It is a work of art, bringing a modern look to any living space.
The Black Ostrea finish is inspired by the pearlized appearance of an oyster, with an iridescent look. The mineral side is precise work carried out by expert technical craftsmen who strive to make each product unique. This finish has been designed to be the perfect addition to a contemporary home, combining hints of concrete and metal, and adding sophisticated style to any interior.
