Default I agree with your observations

I am trying to optimally match my Scala v2 with electronics. Candidates:

- Esoteric C03 + A03 + K01

- Leben 600cs

- Audia Flight Strumento No1/No4

- Naim?

- Vitus SS-010

...


How would C03/A03 match with Scala? The room is 13' x 25'. I am currently using Fatman Carbon 25W amplifier and it is a lot of juice for my ears. I like to listen orchestral, but also piano solo, modern jazz

I just heard Naim NAP 300 with N272. The sound was sublime.

I have paradigm sig s8v2 in my smallish room 12 x 16 x 8 ft. Looking to upgrade. You think a scala would work in this room? I do like bass and actually run 2x 18 inch V1800 PSA subs.

Guessing its between the 802D3 and scala v2 there.

EDIT: Also what about the Scala V2 vs Revel salon 2?

Also what are the differences with EM and the EM Evo line? Anyone compare these? How about a maestro evo vs stella non-evo ?

Definitively the Scala v2.
it plays in another league than the Sopra 3

It is also "better" than the B&W, but this is another brand and a question of taste!

I have narrowed down my options to all Focal at this point.

- Focal Scala v2 (best "budget" option in my case)
- Focal Maestro III
- Focal Scala Evo (although the price is higher than both of the above)

My ranking would be
- Scala v2
- Scala Evo
- Maestro III

Like this, you save money for the other components!

I just ordered Scala EVO to replace a pair of Sopra 3 ive had for 2 years. Haven't heard them but love the Sopras so Im not worried about the sound. Have to sell the Sopras now. Cant wait to compare.
