First of all i would like to thank everybody involved in my... research. Every opinion is very helpful and i really enjoying this conversations along with audiophiles.
@Daryl RSV4, Jeff Flowerday: I have already gave a chance to "non covered" auditions. I think the high frequencies are getting more detailed, but as they are all ready "bright" i can tell any more differences at the moment. By the way i like very much how the speakers look with out the covers for the tweeters, they make me feel that are Utopia models little brothers... well ok, long cousins considering the price and sonic performance difference, whatever...
@designmule: Trust me i totally understand what are you trying to say, i know the flaws of my auditions environment and i m trying for the best. The fat carpet you see on the pictures exists only for audio improvement reasons! I m a civil engineer and currently i m working in an architectural firm. I hear about things like acoustic wall papers for sound improvement and i m getting thoughts all the time. But this things cost off course. Anyway, what i m trying to say is that i know what is got to do with my environment and what is got to do with the speakers, because i also have a pair of Mission 733 (my first speakers originally, not just my previous ones! ) tweaked with a soft dome tweeter (the originally had a metallic) for comparison purposes. The sound difference is huge. More soft and "foggy" mid/highs the Mission, more detailed and bright the Focal's. So sound treatment of the room is on schedule, but still the the matching amp must be found...
@Kless: Thanks for the tips
1 toe-inangle IS already as described. About the placement with the speakers further apart i really prefer position them in the other side of the room where no opening exist and the sound is greater, but there is a heater in that wall and i dont use them in the winter. Anyway, thats another story...
2 Unfortunately, a lot of you make suggestions that cannot be found so easily here in Greece. Will try to check about it. What i have to say is that in discussions i had with other audiophiles they have told me that hybrid amplifiers need to be truly well designed and build or sound results could be worst than a pure solid state and of course worst that a pure tube amp.
My experience till now in hybrids integrated amps is Vincent SV-236MK
(aprox 1500 Euros) witch sounded great in my ears when i auditioned in a store with some triangle speakers plus another one, witch is big chapter. I have auditioned here in Greece Xindak retailer the XA6950(09)
(aprox 1350 Euro) playing on Aurum Cantus V8F
form a pc connected directly to the amps internal dac! And the sound was so great that i was melancholic all day trying to find out how i will find a perfect match like this for my Focal's! So till now my impressions for hybrid's are very good and are in the game as long as the price stays at normal levels.
3 I understand that pure tube amps might be a solution for warm, soft and yet detailed vocals but i think that the wattage is out of the question for my preferences and since my budget is tight i cant turn to them at the moment.
4&5 Unfortunately both options are very hard to find here in Greece.
I also think that Hegel H100 would be a great match for the Focals but in the 2300 Euro price range i think that is away from my budget.
PS: The Yamaha RX-V671 has been sold Yesterday, so i m back to stereo sound with the my vintage Harman Kardon HK6300 (witch to my ears sound better than the Yamaha AV) and back in the market to finally take a decision. The guy who bought the amp had a chance to make an audition here in my place, and looked my like i was crazy that i want to sell it. He couldn't found any flaws in the sound...
1. Naked twet's looking great.
2. Best tweaks to get them out.
