This system has been ever evolving for nearly 20 years!  I liked the focals so much I went ahead and moved the 926s to the surround position!  The Scalas are some of the finest speakers I have ever heard...ever!  I've heard and had a lot of speakers in this system over the years, and at this point I'm not sure how I could do much better.

The only items left in the chain that could use some immediate help are the phonostage, amplifier (I need one for the surround speakers and maybe an upgrade for the mains), and cables perhaps...

Would love any ideas on how to maximize the remaining rig!

Nice system.  I also have the Scala.  If you don't mind I am asking,  what do you do tio control the brightness of the Scala?  Is it placement,  or cable?  I tried toe in as well as different cables but it does not seems to help.  Is there a trick that I don't know?  Thanks
