    Hi from BC

    Getting back into the hobby late in life. Like vintage gear and the old music of my youth lol. Hope to get some decent speakers as my first foray into my return to the hobby.

    Welcome! Are you considering vintage speakers?

    Actually one of my concerns is whether it is money wasted buying a relatively new speaker such as the legacy focus se. I would be using accuphase or luxman to drive them. Probably bi amping if luxman.

    Re: Hi from BC

    I've previously owned a pair of Focus (non SE).
    They play really big and IMO would be great for the older music as they are not bright sounding.
    I did find that they like a reasonable amount of power to come alive. Say 100 watts or more.

    Hello & welcome.

    You would not be disappointed with the Focus se. I've not heard them with the amps you mentioned. My friend had a pair for years before upgrading to the V's, he used Coda amps. The Focus are very capable speakers. There should be a few Legacy threads here if you care to search for them.

    I just read a bit about your Accuphase P-300 power amplifier. What a cool piece!
