    It means "side" (in this case) and also means "coast", as in "seacoast". Or maybe the speakers just have a fresh "cote" of black paint? :)

    We bought in this neighborhood 3 years ago because it reminded us of Chicago in Texas

    My wife was not keen on the typical Texan house

    Looking forward to the review Joey, what's in the cards for front end electronics for these ?
    My goal is warmer but still good for

    Parasound JC1 stack is what I’m aiming for. Will that happen? Only 1 person knows.

    Have you demo'ed the Devialet Expert integrated units? What did you think?
    While there are so many integrated units out there, they of course seem to have good relationship with Focal. I was surprised at the sound of the Aria 948 mated with their older D200 unit. I really enjoyed the short demo at AXPONA a few years ago. Actually, I could have listed to that system for hours (never enough time...). That's saying quite a bit given the level gear at the show. Their SAM circuit is interesting tech. It makes for a really clean system as well.

    French & French! Anyway, there seems to be no dealers down there with the stuff.

    Hers an Interesting take on the their stuff from a few years ago. Surprising sound, their hybrid class A / class D amps.

    First time I heard the focal Electra’s was on Devialets 1000 watt mono blocks, and again on the sopra No. 3. Both blew me away. Incredible clarity and power without fatigue.

    I believe you can download different files for different models of speakers for better bass response and flatter frequency. I think... trying
