  1. I recently unboxed, and hooked my brand new La Scala's II, 70th Anniversary to a Cary Audio SLI-80 HS, and the sound was just beautiful. I am still experimenting, so I hooked the pair to my new MAC7200, and although I have no room treatment yet, they sounded even better. See the short video I posted on YouTube, it shows despite the poor recording via my iPhone12, the synergy these 2 have whith is other.


    Next, I will hook'em up to my PL Dialogue HP, and will see. 

    PS: this was initial quick and primary setup, neither the speakers nor the Mac7200 have bene broken in, just out of the box.  Source Amazon HD via Node 2i.

    so did the EVO 400 sound worse than the HP Dialogue? I bought the EVO 400 after auditioning both amps but not because I thought the EVO 400 sounded better - but I was searching for the latest and greatest and I thought maybe the 400 would be a slight upgrade/update? I love my 400 but I will be bummed if the HP Dialogue sounds much better than the EVO.

    they sounded the same to my ears, honestly. so i save myself 5k and returned it. 

  3. I did buy and received and tested the evo400 ia, and compared to my PL HP dialogue, no sound difference was noticeable to my ears, with my KH 70th ann., and my la Scala's 7-th ann. and my forte iii's and h4.



    I returned it to Kevin dale, and kept my hp dialogue, and saved myself  some money.  

    FWIW, Newer is not always better. more of the same in this case. 

  4. I recently paired a Rotel Integrated Amp 1592 with my La Scala II's, and they sound truly amazing, !! Very close to my many other tube amplifiers I use with the LS's.

    The sound is airy, with big sound stage, excellent imaging and excellent clarity, yet warm to the ears. 


    Has any body else had a similar experience combining Rotel audio gear with Klipsch Heritage speakers ? Please share your experience. ty

    I thought the Vidar sounded better in stereo mode.

    on your previous post:



    That's cool. I noticed an improvement going with Vidar mono-blocks vs just one in stereo.

    Not sure if it's the added power or if it's the fact that the channels are now seperated in separate chassis but it was definitely worth getting the second Vidar IMO."



    So which is it: mono or stereo?

    I have not tried a Freya + yet.

    I am curious to know if you have tried the Vidars in mono set up? do they really provide 400 wpc, and do they sound good in mono's mode?


  7. Yes , I did return the Aegirs. I kept the Freya+, and use it with different amps. Like I mentioned, they do get really hot, not too loud unless you turn the knob on the Freya+ all the way up. I felt a decent SET amp did a much better job. IMHO sounded better then the Aegirs did. 

    Get the Freya+, and experiment with different amps, my opinion.

    What pre-amp did you decide to go with? I'm strongly considering a Freya+ and Aegir monoblock setup for my CWIVs. 

    I had this combo,  they get so hot with the forte iii's, u can fry an egg on them. not too loud either. i ended up returning the Aegir's, and using a Dennis Had SET amp. much better imo.
