these only pop up on the radar every 2-3 yrs or so...this one is unique in that the seller states they're in excellent condition..

What would you estimate to be the cost of the proper electronics and cables to run them? In the 1980's it was easily 4x or 5x the cost of the speakers.

I wonder if they're bi-amped?

Room looks a little small with all that in it.

They were nearly always biamped, either passively or with the DAX crossover.

I use the Dax, much better sound than the Diva passive's, I drive the bass panel with H20-S250 and Krell KSA100 on upper, mine are in a 23'x32' room.

At the dealer's way back, they demoed the Diva with a VTL Wotan IIRC in single amp and with Krells on the bass in biamp with the DAX while keeping the VTL in place and with all manner of different amps doing the composite mid/tweeter. All very impressive, the Krell bass demos with the DAX being that much more impressive.
