I use my La Scala speakers as the main speakers in a 4.2 surround sound setup with a Denon AVR and Emotiva 5-channel amp. I'm wondering... 1. Is it possible (advisable) to use a separate amp for the FR/FL speakers and continue using either the Denon's internal amps or the Emotiva amp for the surround speakers? 2. Is there a tube amp, maybe in the $1,000 or less range that would be an upgrade over what I'm using now? Thanks!
Putting a new little system together for the house. I have a pair of La Scala II on their way to me. Still shopping for a nice turntable. I plan on using a Fisher 500C as my integrated amp - but it is currently being restored professionally and I wont get it back for about (3) months ! Well needless to say, I cant have those speakers just sitting in a box for three months.... I would like to pick up something in the meantime. More than likely I will want to get rid of it when my fisher comes in, so maybe re-sell it. Im looking for something that will sound pretty good and not break the bank. Would love to stick with tubes, but ones in nice / working condition are pricey. I just read some reviews that were pretty good on some lower end (Chinese) tube stuff (Monoprice) here is the link to their web site. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=27222 Now I know you get what you pay for - but anyone here own it? Maybe it would be fine for something to use for a few months and keep as a back up..... Or if there are some other suggestions - I would love to hear them. Thanks for your help and advice, Ted
Good day all, I have a set Cornwall 1. I listen to these speaker at conversation level, or slightly higher 90 plus % of the time. what like is that they have great detail at low levels, very room filling sound, and still sound great off axis/in another room. I am soon to move. New room 12x24, with 8 ft ceilings. The speakers will be on 12x16 portion because of hallway opening breaking the wall up. 1 speaker will be close to corner, and other, only back wall. I have been kicking around the idea of selling my Cornwalls for either NEW Cornwall/ La scala/ Fortes, or used chorus ll. I have a pair of quartets, so I get an idea of the flavor of the rear passive speakers, however I have to crank them louder than I usually like, to get them to open up, but at louder levels I might enjoy them better than the Corwalls at the same level. I am wondering if the quartets (New) bigger siblings can play as well or better at lower levels as my Cornwalls, or would they be similar to quartets? Would the La Scalas need more room to breath even at my normal listening levels? I wonder if it would be worth the change since I listen mostly low to medium low levels with the occasional crank fest? Should I just upgrade the stock Cornwall's? If I do upgrade, who do you think would have the upgrades that would best fit my style of listening. I listen to all music except the screaming metal. I don't know the name of the genre. grateful for responses
