Hello, have now listened to the Elac 607 ce speakers a longer period. Must say that they are the best products on the market (recommended). A slim konsept makes you feel a Transparency out its like, homogeneous and very dynamic sound.,. Maybe it's the size that makes them less attractive for the sound they present is very large :::)) Monitor lovers should be a good effort worth hearing them. ::))
Focal is a wonderful, beautiful speakers,,, ELAC is a brighter cleaner less colored. ::)) there's more information.
My experience with the Focal Maestro Utopia speakers is that they need huge amps to make them come alive. I use the Karan KAM 1200 monos. I've found smaller solid state amps to sound more euphonic and slow with these speakers. If you really want to hear their full potential the Ypsilon PST-100MKII pre amp paired up with a Tripoint ORION ac conditioner is the way to go. If it wasn't for this combo I would have misjudged the FOCAL MAESTRO.
