Klipsch La Scala

HubieM, Crutchfield
14 March 2014
  • Summary: I purchased these speakers as a college graduation gift to myself back in 1975. I have used these speakers for at least 8 family/friends weddings...they are still sitting in my living room as back speakers w/a pair of Herasy's as front speakers. Before purchasing the dealer let me take these speakers to his competitors and A/B switch to compare. Needless to say there is no comparison. I love these speakers. They have played great for the past 38 years.
  • Cons: Space could be an issue. A big room would be great.

Good Story!

James MacQueen, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased my La Scalas from Barbara Walters in 1987, she had just purchased Robert Lamm's Bel Air Mansion (the band Chicago ). She did not want them as they were built in to the wall. I bought the pair for $500.00. I had no idea of the quality, just assumed that they would be good if they were owned by Lamm. Can you imagine my surprise when I put on my Sheffield Labs direct to disc "Tower of Power" CD to try out the speakers for the first time. Scared the _____!

Not only a great speaker, one of the greatest pieces of electronics of all time.

hasty1, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: First off I will say this, a Klipsch La Scala is an excellent speaker, but I will add that it is one of the greatest pieces of electronics ever produced. These are an iconic speaker that has been able to remain relevant and admired for decades in an industry where the latest and greatest products are typically obsolete and forgotten in a matter of months or a few years. I am usually an analytical person, but these have an almost ethereal quality to them.

You MUST buy these speakers if you hear them. Period.

  • Summary: These speakers WILL make you smile. I love to sit people down in front of my La Scalas for the very first time and turn on some nice music. A big smile lights up their face every time. I have a set of both series. Like one of the other reviewers said, get the money somewhere and buy a set of these. New or used. You'll sell all of your other speakers after that. I did. I have a pair of the first series underneath my stilt home out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere in Thailand.

Realistic sound and true orchestral dynamics

Michael J. Edelman, Amazon
28 February 2013
  • Summary: Audiophiles used to like to sneer at Klipsch designs- old fashioned, they said. Horns? Who uses horns? Horns are for PA systems. All they have going for them is efficiency, and who needs that is this day of 400-watt FET amplifiers? Until, that is, a few audiophiles rediscovered the wonders of simple, single-ended tube designs. Suddenly, 3 and 5 watt triode amps powered by surplus Western Electric 300B tubes were all the rage.

LA SCALA PRISTINE AUDIOPHILE PURCHASE AND FANTASTIC SOUND AND LOOKS!!!!

allhuskys, Ebay
2 December 2011
  • Summary: THESE SPEAKERS ARE AUDIO AT ITS FINEST!! THE PAIR THAT I HAD FOUND WERE PRISTINE AND JUST LIKE BRAND NEW! THE TRANSFORMERS ON THE CROSSOVERS STILL SHINE LIKE CHROME. HARD TO BELIEVE THESE WERE USED. THE QUALITY OF THESE IS SECOND TO NONE WITH THEIR LIGHT BIRCH FINISH AND THEIR KANE COVERS OVER THE MID AND TWEETER AS NEW. THE SOUND IS THAT TO NEVER FORGET. IF YOU CAN FIND A SET OF THESE GET THEM!!

If you can't have Klipshorns, LaScala's are the perfect choice.

cb2620, Ebay
7 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought the LaScala's to replace the Klipshorns that I used to have. Reason being, the versatility of placement while having almost identical sound reproduction. My Klipshorns only performed properly when located in a corner and there were only two corners in my home that they could be put in. The LaScala's, on the other hand, can be moved to wherever I want them. You can't beat the Klipsch sound and clarity.
