I know a guy who was using the Talon Khorus X speakers with great results.

I've heard the Aloias with Piegas and thought they matched very well. Great detail and yet still quite smooth and very natural sounding. I have an Aloia 13.01 inductive and tried it on my Talon Khorus (original model, single wire so can't bi-amp). I was less impressed. Not bad really, but a little too smooth and not dynamic enough and a bit light in the bass. But very pleasing and musical. This compared to a pair of BC Evos and to a Gamut D200 (granted, at higher prices). I bet it would mate well with the smaller Talons.
rap..i have had,as you do,biamped aloia amps and,as the previous poster noted,used piega p-10 speakers and it was superb.i confess that i have not heard speakers better then the piegas..in fact i am awaiting a new pair of the c-8 ltd piegas' as we speak,and may upgrade to the c-10 ltd if the 8s' are not enough for my lrg room.i currently use a goldmund 29m amp with the piega p10-s but when i did have the aloias' it sounded great.hififarm,1-800-7524018,can help a great deal with your search.good luck.
Thanks all. I appreciate the feedback. There seems to be a strong, narrow, camp of folks on the 'Gon who are really into the Piegas. I'm in the Boston area and I'll see if there is a dealer around. Since speakers are rather cumbersome, I prefer to buy local to make the trade-in, transport part of the equation easier. Can the Piegas be bi-amp'd? I didn't mention before but I have the 13.01 inductive amplifiers.
Speakers-amplfiers go so much hand-in-hand that is always raises the next question. Do I need to upgrade both for the sake of upgading one?
It's interesting that the Aloia importer is also the Piega importer. I'm not sure what this says, maybe nothing.
