Default Kanta 3's arrived...

Unfortunately still waiting for the amps to arrive, so they will just sit and look pretty.

Had a last minute change of heart on the color from taupe/walnut to white/black, I think I made the right choice?

Oh you made the right choice! They look outstanding in your room. Congrats. By the way what color is the wall? Is that a gray or beige tone?

We ended up with 9 shades of gray throughout the house, different area/lighting will change the colors dramatically We went with warmer grays from Benjamin Moore, that particular color is called Plymouth Rock.

Definitely agree. That black & white is an excellent match to your chairs & other room decor. Anticipation..................

Nice! Kanta No3 is so intriguing because for only $2K more than the Kanta No2, you get a significantly larger cabinet and bass drivers. Actually, if you compare the Focal specs on Kanta No3 and Sopra No3, you will see that they are nearly identical.

Very nice room !

Is there a way you can put thicker curtain, having windows right behind the speakers is not ideal to say the least.

Congrats! Any chance you can provide the measurement of the base of the speakers? I'm not sure what they refer to in the spec on focal site for the measurements. It can help me grately.

Thanks!
