Yep, his sister told me that all he brought with him was a toga and a thong.

And the toga was to wrap around the speakers.....

So how did we devolve to togas and thongs?

 

Given the number of suggestions I’ve received about alternatives, I was surprised that nobody mentioned Chorus I or  II. Though I ended up on the large end of the scale with LS—and am quite happy with them—would the Chorus have been a suitable alternative to the LS or Forté?

The LS are in another league when compared to the Heresy, fortes & Chorus IMO.

That’s a fair answer. In addition to sonic differences, LS have a distinctive presence in a room due to their depth. So even with the sound off, they send a message.  That massive folded base horn’s wedge is just timeless and screams “you’re about to get a concert.”  Pretty cool.

There is a lot of devolving around here. Happens all the time!

As for Chorus II vs Forté II my preference is Chorus II. The image is larger and more relaxed and the CHII sound better at lower volume. I even preferred Chorus II over Forte III. I have only heard LaScalas under show conditions and it was not a good demo room or set-up IMO

so I can't give an opinion.

Jeez...  I miss the prices this stuff, and others, could be bought for 10 to 15 years ago.

No joke!  I picked my black Cornwall II’s for $400 and walnut Heresy II’s for $300 around 2007.

Amazing...  Only way that happens now is for estate or other “don’t know what they have/desperation” sales...
