You'll definitely need a subwoofer with the Sopra's if you want true full range response and value deep bass. If your room is on the smaller side and you don't mind adding a good sub, the Sopra 1 is a no brainer. Its midrange performance can't be matched by the Kanta's.

Donít know about midrange performance canít be matched by the kanta.

The kanta has a dedicated midrange woofer
