  1. I have had all three myself and I agree.
  2. I have always loved and have been very impressed with these speakers also. Very surpising how good they actually are.
  3. I have a very nice KV4 center channel speaker that was used in a secondary TV room. I moved to a new home and no longer have a use for it. I am looking to sell local in the DFW area. I am asking $250.00. I am also selling a pair of KG2.5's $250.00, a Martin Logan Dynamo 1000 wireless sub $575.00, and a Yamaha RX-A1070 receiver $600.00. I do have the boxes for the sub and Yamaha but I would rather not ship the speakers. Sorry for the grainy pictures.
  4. I have a very nice pair of light oak KG2.5's for sale in the DFW area. I relocated to Texas in July and we finally settled into a new home in January. The new home only has room for one set up and these were in my secondary system so I no longer have a use for these. They are in excellent shape. I am asking $250.00 obo.

  5. Yes excellent amplifier, it is the X250.8 by Pass Labs. I was trying it out and decided I liked it so much I would up my game and ordered a pair of mono's from them, X260.8's. I tried the XA25 at the same time and it is an amazing amp also and would drive any klipsch speaker excellently. I am using these with some Bowers and Wilkins so I went with more power.
  6. These are 8 gauge silver plated copper wire in Teflon. They will come with Banana connectors for both ends and an extra set of spade connectors for one end. These are a very detailed and neutral sounding set of wires. This a great opportunity to own an excellent set of cables for a great price. They are 10' in length. $325.00 plus shipping. Same wire as listed here: http://www.decware.com/newsite/speakercables.htm
  7. These are excellent silver RCA interconnects made by My Audio Cables, aka RAC. Very clear detailed neutral and full. I have two pair 1 meter long and am asking 110.00 per pair plus shipping
  8. I am selling all five of these for this price. They are 1 half meter in length. These are fantastic Interconnects. I no longer have any use for them as the home theater project fell through. $550.00 plus shipping http://www.audioreview.com/product/cables/interconnect-cables/acoustic-zen/i-2010x-matrix-reference.html
  9. This amplifier delivers amazingly clean, dynamic and detailed sound with a stunningly realistic soundstage. This is a 3 Channel Power Amplifier which can be used for L,R and center channel for HT and/or multichannel music, or stereo plus a passive sub. It also has the ability to inhibit, turn off, individual amplifier modules so you can use any 2 channels as a stereo amp with third channel kept as a spare module. I purchased this amplifier for a home theater project that it appears I will not be doing at this time. I was curious to hear it so I hooked it up to my laptop and disabled the center channel utilizing it as a two channel amp. I removed my Pass Labs amp and plugged this in to my two channel set up.. I was extremely impressed. It.runs very quiet and cool, has very impressive detail and an excellent soundstage, fantastic bass.

  10. This is an amazing amplifier that has produced some of the finest music I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. I have enjoyed it immensely. I am going to upgrade to the unit that is a two piece design, 845 Premium, why not. It is in excellent shape and comes with a remote control. I am asking 4995.00 obo. I do have the original box if buyer would like to arrange pickup.
  11. Thanks for the picture. I have wondered what they would sound like with the tweeter and mid horn up closer to ear level.
  12. No subs please. I don't have the room for a sub.
  13. You actually have yours elevated 14 inches. What changes did that produce with the sound. Do you have a picture?
  14. I was wondering what different choices are out there for improved bass for the La Scala. No subwoofers please. If I am reading it correctly the Crites cast woofers are not an option on this model of La Scala's which is unfortunate, I really liked what they did for my Belle's. Is the ported lower section worth it. Do you have to change crossovers, I don't want to. I have Custom AA's I would rather leave alone.
  15. I picked up these used LaScalas a while back but had to wait until we moved to Texas before I could set them up and listen to them with my Line Magnetic amp and other 2 channel gear. I finally had a chance to spend some serious listening time since moving. I was having an issue with the sound being a little closed off and in the speakers instead of in front or outside of them. The modifications I have performed are as follows. I replaced the crossovers with some custom type AA Dean G built crossovers. I replaced the tweeter and mid with the Crites supplied CT-120 and A-55G drivers. I just rewired the insides, drivers to crossovers, with some very nice silver wire soldered to the terminals on the drivers with Mundorf silver gold solder. Still a little off and compressed to me, good but not quite right. Then, and I slapped myself for this, I realized I had not addressed what should have been ridiculously obvious, which was the speaker terminals. My LaScalas have closed uppers with a terminal cup and the positive speaker wire also goes through a fuse. I removed the old terminals put some nice red copper terminals in their place and removed the fuse from the signal path. Needless to say the improvement was not at all subtle. I think I have eliminated most all of the weak links in my system now and it sounds as good as I have hoped for, just beautiful. I had mentioned this in my Line Magnetic thread but thought I should share this here.
  16. I used Viborg red copper speaker terminals.
  17. Ok not sure why I did not consider this before, a little too much happening right now in life with moving and all I suppose. So I decided to rewire my LaScalas, the drivers to the crossovers, with some really nice silver wire I had left over from a previous project. I also have the closed back with the RCA terminals and a fused input on the positive side. Well long story short I ordered some new RCA terminals removed the old ones and by-passed the fuse altogether. The difference is remarkable. The issues I was experiencing with the sound being a little closed off and in the speakers is non existent now. I am listening to Roxy Music Avalon, one of my go to albums when I change something and it sounds amazing , sounded good before the change but a little off, absolutely fantastic now. Money and time well spent. Now if I can just avoid being swept away by the ridiculous amount of rain we are getting right now here in the DFW area.
  18. That's hard to hear. RIP
