Focal recently expanded their Kanta range to include the larger, No.3 floorstander, a centre channel model, as well as the No.1 bookshelf.

I don't yet know what pricing will be in Canadian dollars, but according to 'whathifi', the No.3s are £8999, the Center £1999, and £4499 for the No. 1s.

I'm curious to give 'em a listen myself, but in the meantime I look forward to others' impressions of them, and how they might compare to other upper-end Focal models, and anything else. And so on.

Gracias of the muchas variety!

While you're at it, what about the center speaker?

I find their Be tweeters to be quite impressive, and I enjoy the sound of the flax drivers in their Aria/900 line. Intuitively, it seems it could be a rather nifty combination.

I am pretty interested in hearing a demo of the bookshelves.

The Audio Room here in Calgary has a pair coming in to demonstrate at a small audio show that they are putting on September 29th. I am looking forward to it.

Is that the retail price, or the sell price?

If that is the suggested retail price, they are less expensive than I thought they would be. I was expecting the Kanta 1 to be closer to the Sopra 1 in price; but they are closer to the 1008 Be. I wonder how they perform compared to each.
