Problem with LaScalas is, if you like the music you say you do - LaScalas are sub par in the bottom end.
The term full bodied means, to me, you need better performance than 50hz in the bottom end.

Cornwalls fit into the term full bodied better with usuable bass down to 30-35hz.

Some JBLs would do very well, but they tend to be over priced for larger footprint speakers.

A pair of Altecs, perhaps Valencias (still a bit weak on bottom end, but much better than LeScalas) may work well to. In the proper room they tend to play more like 40-45 hz speakers...

Owning many we have already posted, in my opinion, the Cornwall do most everthing right.

Completely agree the Cornwalls would be a great choice and if you can find a pair for a grand or less I'll take them.

Cornwalls should cost $800 to $1000. The MK1 version will sound the best and has the best quality parts.

I have read others praise the Cornwalls too. It’s all about the timing- what becomes available when available. $1,000.00 ok saving as we speak. We shall see.
