Scala's are home, WOW :)

Recommended Posts

Several years ago, I picked up a pair of RF-7's thinking I will never part with. Well, in short, goodbye my ol' friends. Hello! La Scala!!!

After getting them settled in (had to paint the wall behind cause they clashed with the yellow). Replaced a diaphragm on one HF horn (I'll do the other next week). It was time for a test drive!

Three words, OMG!!! :) -the delicacy of sound from these is amazing. The warmth is attractive and the look, well, look at them! Gorgeous!

I was a little worried they would be too much. Those worries went quickly out the door with the twist of the throttle. Oh dear Lord, I had no idea what I have been missing. Now to smooth over the neighbors. I think some fresh baked cookies are in order :)

Congratulations; roughed it without them for almost a week, since you decided to wait.

Isn't that great, the way things worked out?

Yup, Adcom gear. GTP-502 pre & GFA 555 amp (original). BUT :) just purchased a Rotel 1068 pre for $239 on the Bay. Going with ALL Rotel gear. Just going to have to be a little at a time. Oh, Adcom gear will be for sale soon :)

Thanks all for the kind Congrats :)

Congrats.

A pair of LaScalas , A good sub , A good dog and a room to put him in when flexing the system.

Doesn't get much better than that !

None of the 3 will likely ever let you down or give you any grief :D

Awesome! I made the switch from my RF-83 setup that I said I'd never sell to La Scala II's off craigslist late last year. I agree about the La Scala sound being better.

nice rotel pre, i like rotel stuff too, i have a rb99bx amp i got for a great deal from a local auction. 200wpc & it sounds very nice, much better than my adcom 555ii's. are the rotel preamps rated good? havent looked into their preamps yet, but i'm considering trading the adcom gear for rotel stuff too based on how the 990 amp sounds.

Good choice

I say that because I like laScalas, not because I don't like Rf-7's, really I never heard the 7's for more than 5 minutes so it would be unfair. Although I am fond of big plywood boxes as speakers.

Oh almost forgot, they look great in your room, very nice.

If you build or buy a THT from Jason, you will have to take entire meals and wine to your neighbors. Those cookies won't be worth spit as bribery material!! LOL

Isn't amazing how many people go back to Heritage with great satisfaction?

Some of us never left and have even improved upon Heritage. Khorns and beyond for decades while the rest of the world suffered with high distortion sound.
