Hi guy, found another speaker looks alike Rega ELA,
tweeter, woofer and speaker body very similar to Mk1.75 and Mk2

My uncle have one set of Rega ELA floorstand too, they are very fast and have good soundstaging, and the bass is bass-right rather than really deep. With the right amp they sound so alive with all types of music, very realistic, agile and dynamic. He told me the old style Ela Mk 1 or Mk 2 (ie pre Ela 2000), are better sounding than any new speaker under £2000 he can think of. The recent models are rather different sounding. The originals are fast, have the most fabulous treble and mid-range (vocals are wonderful) and have realistic bass rather than the artificially 'impressive' boosted mid-bass of so many modern ported speakers. They are easy to drive with a small integrated. Dom's Nait/Ela combination is a classic and you have to spend about x3-5 more to get a really significant improvement.
They will wipe the floor with a set of budget speakers, because those early ELA's are the best speaker Rega have ever made!!

tested on the speaker. i think the bass it has is just nice. and needed high current to drive it although has high sensitivity. else it will has seriously bright sounding.
paring it with SCP also a big no no.
i tested it with cable talk 4 / QED XT350.and found that cable talk 4 sound much more nicer in this speaker.
bass is ok for me as i tested it in a room where i place the speaker quite near to back wall (estimated around 30-40cm away)

Congrats on the purchase! thumbup.gif
I think the bass driver is a 'lil bit too small.. how's the bass reproduction?

more than enough for the bass. nice vocal. tend to be slightly thin for my taste. but nice on detail, and the airy feeling. super wide sound stage, but congested when a lot of information were played, like some songs where a lot of instrument were playing at same time. it sounds slightly congested. then the depth of the sound stage is not truly superior. but much better than BR2 imho.

Hi likchan. You like the Ela 2000? but i think its easier to find it in Singapore rite? i was asking quotation from there before i found my Ela MK1.
Last time a seasoned audiophiles told me this Brit speaker can match with Rega's Brio (natural choice), Naim Nait 3 or Exposure amp. Coincidently he was looking for pre Ela 2000 that time.
As you might know that Rega speaker is rather natural then warm, so tube amp can be a good choice too. Wanna try your some old Ela? There are many old Ela's fans/owner in EU still claims that Ela Mk1 and Mk1.5 are still the best in Rega Ela series, just that its not easy to find in Malaysia.
