In Reply to: RE: Plugged my Spica TC-50s in for the first time in years posted by zacster on February 19, 2017 at 05:36:07
It always surprised me that more people haven't attempted to clone these. I'm not counting Parasound doing the TC60 years ago. A friend who has owned SoundLab electrostatics for years once told me the Spica's( including the Angelus) were the only box speakers that sounded boxless to him. That was years ago though and a lot of today's box speakers pass that test easily.
I'll have to set them up properly so I can hear that imaging again. I just had them on the floor, barely separated from each other. It was only to keep music on while we were cleaning up.
I also plugged my Frugal Horn single driver speakers into the same system when we moved to the basement to clean up down there, and the Spicas were much better.
I think the Spica's represent somewhat of a timeless design.....much like the Quad 57 and many classic components from the past. May look dated by current standards, but make listening more involving than many modern offerings.
