finally coming together, again

Recommended Posts

WooHoo 🥳

 

well things are beginning to come back together.  So nice to have a pair of Scala's in my life again.  Had certainly forgot what was missing.  Dancing circles around 'em ol RF-7's LOL

A huge Thank You to our very special friend out of StL, @MookieStl!  Sir Mookie helped me score a very nice, pristine condition vintage Onkyo TX-SV90PRO.  Paired with the Scala's, I am at a loss for words...

Grateful & Blessed

After a little tuning, the 1st song I listened to was Southern Cross by Crosby Stills & Nash.  The hair stood on the back of my neck as I was swept away in the pure warmth and thunder of me new 2-channel rig 🥰

Are those the ones @Shaun K has now?  If so, I saw them when I bought my Heresys from him.  Didn't get a chance to listen to them but they sure looked nice.

Well I don’t equate sound quality with wpc or how much something weighs. I e heard those onkyos so that’s what I go with.

not sure who has them now, Wuz.  I do know the fella that bought them from me had them for sale.  They are power hungry monsters!  The custom porting made 'em babies really dig.  Fun speakers.

Yep, that was me...as evidenced here: 

I've never put them up for sale though, they're still here in my basement waiting to go into my office once the construction is done.  I think they need a crossover refresh and maybe some new diaphragms, because (and don't hate me) I've never liked the way they sound.  I've tried all kinds of amps but they haven't measured up to my CF-3's and CF-4's.  I'm not giving up though, they look amazing thanks to the work that you and MookieStl put into them.  The build for them is documented here, if anyone is interested:

Glad you still have them. I knew you had gone the CF3 & 4 route and was afraid these would have to move on again. Hope they work out in your office. I would definitely do a cross over refresh first and go from there. It is time.They aren't any fun to get out of that cabinet though. Good luck.

Shoot Shaun, I completely forgot that I had bought them back from the 1st fella.  Damn mind is slipping LOL.  Glad you still have them!
