The best adjective off the top of my head to describe my experience with Rega ELAs is 'coherent.' Stunning midrange coherence, clear highs. Bottom end a bit restricted due to driver and enclosure size. There is a pair of ELAs for sale on the site that I actually owned for awhile. I bid on them and won on a whim, as I was always curious as to their sound. For the money, they are a good value (I think the asking price was $450 - list $1100). But in a direct comparison to my Kestrels, they fell short by a wide margin. I thought this was a good comparison, since the new list prices are pretty close, and both are floor standing, time-aligned, transmission-line designs. I found them to be laid-back sounding with my Linn components, and I believe you use Linn yourself. Again, for the money, I don't think you would be disappointed, but you might still want to demo them against a similar design such as the Kestrel, If the ELA is the speaker you had in mind. Good luck.
