first post here. let me start this off by saying that i recently went from running an old carver receiver and some nht bookshelves to completely upgrading my amp/pre amp to a pair of welbourbe lab mono block 300b amps and an EAR 834 L Deluxe amp. I found myself in a sudden need for much more efficient speakers. I paired the tube gear with some heresy 1's. I bought all this gear in a week on a road trip back home. i spent a few days staying with a friend where we had everything set up and it sounded amazing with the heresys on the floor in a small room. after finally getting them set up at home they don't sound nearly as good. I've tried a lot of different placements but just not the same. the room they are set up is also small. i tried on the floor and with risers. too make things even more complicated, I'm moving in 2-3 weeks into a loft style place with cement walls and a rather large room. will they hold up in an environment like that? should i consider cornwalls or something else?where they are currently set up i seemed to lose some low with a slightly more harsh high end. thanks guys!
Has anyone here paired Manley 300B Neo-Classic amps with La Scala speakers? I'm wondering how well these would match up, especially for orchestral music and large scale opera, but also for jazz. The Manley delivers about 12 watts in parallel single ended mode or 24 watts in push-pull mode. Given the high sensitivity of the La Scala II, this would seem to be a very good combo for orchestral music and should have plenty of dynamic headroom. I'd be interested in hearing others experience with La Scala and SET amps, especially 300B and 2a3 SE amps. My room doesn't have a configuration suitable to use Klipschorns, so La Scala would be my only option for fully horn loaded Klipsch speaker. Thanks.
