    • And if I've read correctly, and anyone correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it mentioned that the Cownwall IV mid horn a "modified" version of the CF-3/4 horn?  
    • Welcome to the forum Mike!
    • This ^^^^^^^ owned them and the Chorus, I like the Epics better but I do tend to prefer 2 ways. They are special speakers for sure and that "poor mans K510 horn" is pretty darn good. Congrats those are keepers.
    • Me personally, I'd stay with the CF-4's of any iteration...the version doesn't matter that much in the grand scheme of things.  
    • congrats on the new epics!     as good as chorus are, i think they cf-4 (regardless of version) is the better speaker.  mainly due to the fact that 12" woofers will move a LOT more air than 1 15" woofer.  plus the d'appolito array makes for better imaging & keeps the possibly overly strong mid range of the chorus to a minimum.  & the epics will do just as well in home theater as with 2ch music so its your calll after comparing them which one goes where.    i have owned both & prefer the epic over the chorus(2)... but dont get me wrong, i love my chorus2 also & still own them.  i regretfully sold the epics to help fund k-horns.  
    • That may be an option, however if I was going to stick with the La Scala I'd probably just upgrade entirely to the AL5. I think the cabinet bracing is different and it may have some design changes that go beyond the electronics/components. I currently have the walnut LS IIs but those matte black with the silver grilles are mighty nice looking. 
    • The correct timbre matched one.
    • The move to Josh Gattis as OC has been a disaster.  Play calling is awful.
    • John, these may even have the older chrome throat, screw on terminal 16 ohm K-77's in them like my 1962 Cornwall's.  How incredible that the paperwork is still stapled to the back with the exception of some water marks on the top they are in beautiful condition for being close to 60 years old.
    • Interesting time looking into all this the last few weeks.  I initially started researching the whole RPi thing and was getting ready to dive in.  My only concern was that from all reports, I would need a high quality HAT for the RPi to have good sound.  I wondered if there was software similar to Volumio that would run my current HTPC and turn it into a Linux based exclusive audio platform.  That was another rabbit trail, but produced very good results.  There are lots of options unbeknownst to me. I started with Volumio, but ran into some issues. Then I tried Euphony which worked perfectly out of the box, but I am not willing to pay nearly $300 for just software.....and, it honestly did not sound as good as my Windows JRiver setup.   Next I ran into SnakeOil, a Ubuntu based OS for JUST hi-fi players. I played with that for a full day.  Great options and lots of players you can use.  My problem was that I ran into some hardware issues that I could not solve since I don't know how to work with Linux. While I waited for some help from the author, I decided to try Daphile.    Daphile was super easy to set up and ran perfectly out of the box.  Cost is $0. Loads super fast in my old HTPC.  Used the loaded music in .flac I had on my 1TB SSD and is totally headless.  Just what I wanted.  Initial sound impressions are very good.  Sounds as good, if not better, than my Windows 10 setup.  I have not done any critical listening yet, but this is very promising.   The nice thing is that all these offerings run from a USB stick for the first time. So, you can remove your Windows boot drive and play with these all you want. If you don't like the results, just replace the drive and boot back into windows.  No harm, no foul.    Daphile has a built in server and who knows what else.  I will be playing with this the next few days.
