Is there a specific thread or place where we can see impressions and/or characteristics of the Carnegie Acoustics Pedestale speakers?

cedman1. I personally own a pair of the pedistale loudspeakers. They are awesome and sound better than those that were three times their price. Coming from a musician background, I appreciate the natural, accurate tone, pace, and transient response. I listen to jazz, new age, world music, pop, some intimate three, four piece jazz groups. I'm not using a sub at this point, but I'm planning on one. I listen near field and drive them with the IOTAVX SA-3 and PA-3 amplifier stack in bridge mode. My front end is an Audiolab 6000 CDT transport, using the Wolfson DAC in the IOTAV SA-3. As you can tell, my system is very modest, but deeply satisfying. The Pedistale look as good as they sound as well. Hope this helps you.

We had a customer last month that accidentally got 2 pairs of Devanti from Carnegie, instead of Devanti and a Centare.

But he liked them so much, he bought the 2nd pair of Devantis as well as getting the Centrare he originally ordered.
Only heard good things about them so far.

Haven't heard them myself tho.

Pedestales arrived! Connected them to my Onkyo receiver for now and breaking them in. Getting Emotiva's to drive these. All good so far!

They sound great! Very revealing and soundstage is fantastic. I have set the crossover at 50hz and using my old SVS sub. Overall, I am very happy.
