Br3098. You are not alone. I responded to another recent post by Renmeister. As far as Johnk is concerned, I take nothing away from his experiences, opinions and technical back ground. I take nothing away from anyone who does not like Lascalas, or, horns for that matter. We are all men/women with ears. We are all "looking for something" in our pursuit of nirvana. I have 40 plus years involved in this hobby, as well as my livelihood for many of them. For a "sound reinforcement" speaker to find its way into many homes over the years, by folks like you and me, and many musicians and other music listeners/audiophiles I have known over the years, shows the versatility and excellent design of the Lascala. I really like the statement by Bill Lowe of Audioquest: "To do less harm". I make the point of saying " To each his own " . Let us all enjoy !
