Piaga is the Swiss made line with ribbon drivers and aluminum cabinets, any Cam members have any experience?

Yes correct spelling is Piega, great way to start off.

Just rolls right off the tongue, any thoughts on the newer models 301, 501, 701?

Had a pair of C2 several years ago. Probably the speakers I owned for the longest duration. Know a friend who has a pair of C8 Limited.

Piega to me is very very very good. The ribbon tweeter is very well made the highs are silky sweet and not harsh at all.

They are expensive but if you can afford it they’re worth every penny and much much more.

An outstanding speaker line in all areas. Fit, finish, sound quality and innovative design. Just beautifully made. I am currently using a pair of 701s and a PS 2 subwoofer. Great transparency and frequency extension that in part must be attributable to the aluminum cabinets. The ribbon tweeters are remarkably smooth and fast as is the sub. Highly recommended, very easy to drive as well.

They also retain their great detail and musicality at low volume levels, a characteristic I value and find rather rare.

Well worth an audition. I would support Chuttts comments below, probably even more true of the new premium line.

Decision made,
new pair of premium 501's coming my way may have them for the weekend.

The room is smallish 12x17 or so and over powering the space was a concern although the sub
is waiting.

This room is not treated yet due to recently moving having come from a nice dedicated space previously.

I contacted the Canadian distributor since there wasn't a dealer in B.C.
The distributor is located in Ont and I had them shipped out to the coast.

Their contact info is listed on the Piega [correct spelling this time] dealer network home page.

Got them in today and will be running for a few day's to settle things in.

The ribbon is one thing I was interested in comparing to the Infinity RS 2.5's I had owned
and always enjoyed, although they had a separate high and mid the Peiga impressed right off.

Sweet, I see your speaker stands are weighted...

Nice speakers! How is the transition from the ribbon tweeter to the cone woofers? Can the woofs keep up with the ribbon?
Has anyone heard the coax models with the ribbon tweeter in the center of the ribbon midrange driver? Now that is a one of a kind driver! Very interesting line of speakers from this Swiss company. Seems reasonably priced for what you get.

Still letting them run in but did sit down and play something I was familiar with to get an impression
they prefer no toe in in my room, imaging was better when the adjustment was made.

As to the ribbon transition to the mid/woofers pretty good but considering the size
of the other 2 drivers being smallish you would expect that to be the case.
