Helsinki HIFI EXPO 2023 in September saw the introduction of a new Finnish loudspeaker manufacturer, Hopia Audio Design. The company's flagship product, an active loudspeaker based on an open baffle principle, attracted a heartwarming number of listeners, as our suite was full from morning to evening on both days.
The reception was overwhelming, both on site and on the enthusiast forums afterwards, with numerous people listing Hopia Audio 15 as their favorite product of the entire expo lineup. Bear in mind that Hopia competed against systems up to 20x their price.
We have collected a few forum and social media comments at the bottom of the page.
An extensive period of R&D has culminated into a loudspeaker that combines the natural and transparent sound intrinsic to an open baffle design, with an impressive full bandwidth and headroom akin to a professional large scale mastering monitor.
The Hopia Audio 15 has a robust steel frame, with wooden front and side panels, bringing the overall weight of a loudspeaker to app. 140kg. The loudspeakers are manufactured in Finland and the customer has the option to choose custom colors for both the steel frame and the wooden panels. Each pair of loudspeakers will be delivered directly to the customer and will be tonally optimized according to the room environment by using the DSP facilities integrated into the loudspeaker itself.

"Hopia Audio automatically attracts me – open baffles with big cone area and good SPL capabilities."
"For me, the best sets were the Rosso Fiorentinos, Hopia Audio, Grandient R5 and Wilson."
"Hopia Audio was good."
"The only one that were “this is really good” were B&W:s big room and Hopia Audio:s clockwork orange speakers."
"Finally the best sound of the Expo: Hopia."
"Hopia Audio: +"
"In the Hopia Audio room I had to comment: these don’t suck – and I’m not much for compliments."
"I liked the Hopia Audio and Rosso Fiorentino. Open and musical soundscape."
"Hopia Audio. Fantastic! An impressive manifestation. If I had to build a stereo-set around a BIG TV ans a ps5, these would be number one on my list."
"The Hopia speaker had “that something”. I would have to test them in peace and quiet to see the nuances of the midrange and tweeter. Could have what it takes to “the final solution”. Beats the XXXXXX by a stretch and at 1/7 of the price."
"Well, what stayed with me? The Hopias took gold. Big shoutout to the builders."
"The sound combines openness, distinction, and musicality, without fatigue. Apparently the class D amplifier isn’t a hindrance to these qualities."
