In Massachusetts, 0 dealers. One dealer in New York. Hard to love something that’s virtually impossible to hear.

They sound more like listening to Live Music than listening to speakers.

Well, I've seen the name and know nothing else. Never seen in person. Little or no distribution is probably why.

Without even looking at the speakers I’ll guess that:

They’re probably voiced for showroom sound.

The overall sound quality is not as good as what they are charging for it.

Use an esoteric design for no reason.

That esoteric design actually introduces a bunch of design flaws.

That esoteric design is also the reason they feel the need to charge a bunch.

They would be easily beat in a blind test by a speaker that costs less than half the price.

How’d I do?

Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)

They remind me of my Infinity IRS Bata's or the IRS V'S only without the wings.

I'm sure they are very nice sounding speakers.

The problem is, is that they are big and heavy making them very expensive to ship. It's hard to offer in-home demos with easy low cost/free returns.
With very limited brick & mortar's to see and hear them at it's going to be very difficult for them to gain popularity.

On some of the other forums, some picked the PIEGA Coax 711's over the Kef Blade 2 and Magico 3 MK2 speakers.. hands down!

So PIEGA speakers are right up there with the Best.

"The PIEGA speakers sounded more open and more realistic compared to other speakers"..

Saw their dipole single cabinet flagship... examined up close at Axpona '18, in nice natural light... very impressive tech/build quality... but I was equally disappointed it was but a static display.

One of the reviewers at a show said the PIEGA Coax 711's were the best he had heard from PIEGA!

Even on You Tube that very open and very realistic sound still comes through with these recordings!

My friend uses a Accuphase E-600 Class A Integrated amp with his PIEGA Coax 711's but will soon be getting the all new Accuphase E-800 Integrated amp $21K

You can see from my signature that I have piega speakers in my main listening room. I think they sound great, but I have had to import them as there were no north American dealers for years. It is still very hard to get the AP 1.2 speakers without directly purchasing them from the manufacturer. They have great build quality. They are much more popular in Europe.

Their main internet site is https://piega.ch/en/

Keep in mind that the 711 mentioned above is $25,000/pair while a pair of AP1.2 is around $900

Media Room: LG oled65c7, Marantz AV8805, Sherbourn 7/2100, Emotiva A-300, Studer A80, Studer Revox b795, Nakamichi RX-202, HTPC, exaSound e38, Sweetvinyl Sugarcube SC-2, (2) Piega P10, Piega Coax Center, (6) Piega AP 1.2, Hsu VTF-15h mk2
Office: Emotiva mini-x A100, Geek Pulse, (2) KEF LS-50, Goldenear FF 4, PC, NAS 130TB
Bedroom: Panasonic TCP55vt35, Marantz NR1200, Dune 3 Prime, (2) Elac Uni-Fi UB5

TAS put the 711 at the same performance level as the magico m2 aside from the bass which was not quite as good. This is really impressive at 1/3 the cost.


https://www.theabsolutesound.com/art...rs-20k-and-up/


But early a review from TAS said the midrange lacks dynamics compared to cone speakers.

Id like to hear the 711.
