Much bigger sound more engaging and when I played the sopra three then took ok out cables and swapped to kanta it was like I was listening to a radio speaker.
Do the test your self I couldn't believe how much better they were.

I sold my 1028be2 for the Sopra2. The cabinet design, build quality and Sound is in another league. The 1028 cabinet isn’t stable on carpet and the narrow MDF base just doesn’t cut it.
Get the Sopra’s if you can swing the extra $$$

You all need to specify whether or not you have the 1028BE or 1028BEII or 1038BE or 1038BEII.

The Gen 2 revisions are notably better than the initial offerings.

"Like all the high-end loudspeakers in the Electra 1000 Be 2 range, the Electra 1038 Be floorstanding loudspeakers has benefitted from new components and settings. The impressive punch delivered by three 7″ (18cm) woofers with their inexhaustible power, reinforces the new clarity in sound image and definition.

These loudspeakers with their characteristic sleek design are truly formidable in the audio reproduction world."

In case anyone finds this thread via Google search as I did, there is not a BE I and BE II version of the Focal Electra 10x8 line. The entire Electra 10x8 line is referred to as “BE II”, as compared to the entire Electra 10x7 line, which is referred to as “BE I”. The main difference is of course the 1” Be tweeter on the 10x7 line vs. the 1.25” Be tweeter on the 10x8 line.

Thanks very much. This is an area of ongoing confusion and misstatements by the uninformed. However, you state the facts correctly.
