Both are great speakers, but I think the Sopras have more magic and musicality.

I'm not a KEF fan but I did like the Ref 3 and the bigger ones. I respect them, but I'd absolutely go with the Sopras. They are also infinitely nicer looking if you ask me.

I listened to the Sopras and man are you right, they do sound magical. The highs and mids are incredible and the soundstage is on another level. End game speakers for sure. Thank you for sharing

Got the Sopra 3s. Replaced the Focal 1038be. Nice upgrade in all areas. The 1038s sounded amazing with my PrimaLuna amp but the Sopras not so much. Im using a Mark Levinson amp with them and the sound is perfect for me
