    Legacy Audio?

    Has anyone here owned or spent some significant time with any of their offerings? Curious to see what people think or have experienced.

    Re: Legacy Audio?

    Years back I had their Focus speakers for a while. Big, bold and musical. Good fit and finish for the day.
    Have heard their stuff at the audio shows and it was always a pleasant room to visit.
    Bill, the owner, is very knowledgeable and is always available for any questions.
    They have a showroom in Springfield IL. if your ever in that neck of the woods.
    My System:
    Lumin A-1
    Joule Electra LA150 Signature Plus
    Pass XA30.5
    Von Schweikert VR4Jr MkIII Anniversary
    18" Open Baffle Subs
    Cables: Teo Audio, Cerious Tech, Fusion Audio.
    Two dedicated 20 Amp circuits. Shunyata Hydra. EP2050
    DIY bass traps and custom curved diffusors.

    A good friend has Legacy, he had the Focus SE for years and now has theV. I thought the Focus were outstanding for the money, meaning they could hold their own with other brands $20k models.

    The V set up sounds great, the price is getting up there though but does include the Wavelet which offers DSP room correction, a DAC if needed and some other features, I'm not fully versed on that aspect. I believe it is the crossover too.

    He has always had Lampi DAC's and Coda amps.

    Those larger models through a huge soundstage, good imaging.

    He also has a HT set up using the Silloette on-wall, that set up is nice as well.

    I feel Legacy offer a good price to performance ratio

    You should contact SCAudiophile, an experienced audiophile with a very fine Legacy system.

    My good friend has the Focus SE and they are outstanding IMO. They are very balanced and work well with many genre of music. His house is the staple location for our local audio GTG and I never tire of listening to his system. I think they are a very underrated brand.
