These present a real challenge, as I have to attenuate the amp output by over 10dB on their challenge to get them to balance with my other speakers, but they sure are fun.
That's hot! You can find Lascala's for sale cheap on audiogon. I just missed a pair locally (I had a pair of Heresy's sitting around and thought about building a HT around Lascalas and a heresy at the center but space became a problem so I sold the Heresy's on ebay). That would be one powerful system. I fell in love with the LaScala's when I heard them in Rota Spain - I'll never forget the day - I was listening to "Thunder Rolls" and I'm not a country fan! I was highly impressed. Glad to hear from you!
