Default La Scala

I had a pair of these in the late 80’s, maybe early 90’s purchased at the Submarine Base Pearl Harbor Naval Exchange.

I like how the present themselves from an aesthetic view, I have not heard them in over 30 years.

I've SOMETIMES heard La Scalas sound awesome, but?

I could never manage to sit through an entire movie on the campus theater at New Mexico Tech, because they used La Scalas (hung from the ceiling), and had them running so terribly bright that it hurt my ears. This was 1987/1988 timeframe.

Well, this topic rattled my cage. I have had a pair of LaScala's since 1978. They have been my reference speakers for the past 41 years. That may seem unrealistic but I have two confessions to make. First because of a certain horn loaded subwoofer I became permanently committed to the LaScala's which are matching satellites. ( long story here ) This set me on an audio path that focused my efforts on maximizing the strengths of horn loaded systems and minimizing or eliminating the liabilities. All this goes to say my LaScala's are far from stock.
Second confession: I have not heard new LaScala's other than briefly in a Chicagoland showroom.
One can certainly find the occasional reviewer with positive things to say about them and other Klipsch heritage speakers.
My musical preferences lean towards jazz and blues, but include a wide variety of others
Two thumbs up from me.
