FS: La Scala's and Emotiva XPA-5 Gen 2

Recommended Posts

I love them but I have to downsize for now. I will get pictures up later.

 

La Scala's asking $1000 firm.

Emotiva - $1000 firm.

 

I am located in the Inland Empire, Southern California.

This thread hurts.  Like, it's as if I dropped a pair of LaScala's on my foot while Mark stands there and laughs at me...

If it doesn't sell I'll just keep them. Why trash my thread. If you have nothing to add leave it alone. You guys are harsh!

Not sure what the negative part of the thread is OP? I am thinking $1000 for LaScalas is a good deal and they are going to bring interest. What was wrong with that?

Sorry if my comment came across as trash threading, as it certainly was not my intent.  I feel $1000 is a good deal for LaScalas and was merely encouraging anyone that is local they should consider these.  Regardless, best wishes with your sale.  I added a smile and a winky face to my original post to clarify the emotion behind my comment.

I was merely expressing that it hurts to see good gear go at prices like that.  And half because you're no where near me.  Nothing harsh about it.

 

Seems like everyone is uptight around here anymore.  GLWS anyway, OP...

I paid $1000 for my La Scala's & I think I got a good deal. Guy was asking $1100, which I would have gladly paid, but offered $1000 & he said "Ok". I'm in So. Cal close to OP & see them on Craigslist in this range all the time. I believe the main problem with selling any La Scala's, Klipschcorn's, etc is their weight. Not practical to ship them. And So Cal being a populated area should help the sale. I'd buy 'em if I was still looking...   GLWTS

Oh.... sorry guys! My apologies! I had a rough day at work and didn't really read into the replies. I glanced over it and took it the wrong way. Again, my apologies!

Here they are. They're all original. The "white" marks you see on the side of the cabinets were due to my own fault. When I bought these from it's owner years back I transported it using a ton of bubble wrap and tape. Those "white" marks were from the tape. It took off the stain when I peeled the tape off. There's also a few chips here and there, but overall, it is in very good condition. It was powered by the Emotiva XPA-5 amp and a Marantz sr-6011 receiver. Please text me for faster response. The stain used were by Varathane in Honey Maple. If you have any questions please text me at 951-956-9538.1659d06cfe60bb68766a02f18226df6b.jpg686a47997b39e2b4b83010eb6723eb27.jpgf6c3c0f9f3ae67aac8e657c229da33f3.jpg8b23a641beb50a20dd0f3050e4c4bd9d.jpg3f9edf884a8d74dc61ebb62c9c8dc037.jpgf4ecb41d50cbb978b2339f3f641ed9ba.jpgf5d596652e92a83cc749ba691ea6a73c.jpg692317149bc47e4a483f880dd65e14f6.jpg7748feff4f6f0cf211767212fde74b6b.jpg

Here is the Emotiva. Works perfectly, never had an issue with it. It still has the plastic saran wrap on the face of the led panel which was never removed. I believe I still have the original box for the amp as well. Again if you guys have any questions please feel free to text me at 951-956-9538. Thanks! c0e19fd2313d6c80ee0c03d01b198113.jpg

Wow!  LaScala mains matched with some ridiculous output from those subs all powered by Emo juice.  Serious setup you have there.  Looks like two crown amps on the shelf.  Assuming they are for the subs?

Yes. They're for the subs. Two inuke 6000 powering 4 18" Dayton Ultimax's.

@thisgsx I also have a Marantz 6011 and was considering an external amp for use with Khorns.  I am very interested in your opinion in how the 6011/Emotiva worked with your LS's.

 

I don't want to side rail your for sale thread.  If you don't want to discuss your opinion on this thread, would you mind sending me a PM on the 6011/XPA 5 combo?  Thanks!  -Dave

 

And GLWYS.  Good stuff, priced right.  You should be able to move those items in short order.

No worries. Honestly, I've never ran the LS's with just the Marantz. The Marantz replaced an Onkyo HT-RC270 which was powering the LS's and then the amp was added. I can tell you that when I was ab'ing the Onkyo and the Emotiva, the Emo gave the LS's a warmer sound which I loved. The Emo will give you tons of headroom given the high sensitivity of Klipsch. As of now, all I can tell you is that I have tons of headroom. The sound stage is wide, deep and huge. If you want, I can do a comparison with and without the Emo this weekend to give you an idea. Sorry I can't be of more help.

You have been plenty of help, thanks.

 

Don't go to any extra bother for me, but I have to admit being curious.  The reason why is the Marantz already puts out more SPL than my ears can take, and by the Eco power meter even at high listening levels with power saving OFF I am still not tapping even 50% of the power available. 

 

I am all about dynamic headroom, but without actually A/B'ing stock and external amp it's hard to imagine what the difference would be.

It's not a problem at all. In fact, now you've got me a little curious as well. I'll do it this Sunday and let you know my take on it.

if someone wants a single, I might take the second LS.

I'm looking for a single for my center in my surround system.  Its more than a Sunday drive, so I'll need to know if the seller is willing to ship.  Also, what type of crossovers?

 

Thanks!
