    Hello Forum Members, I haven't been very active in this or any other audio forums for quite a while, but I thought I would share this. I just bought a pair of cherry Cornwall IV's from "Ronco21" on Ebay. They are B-stock but the only "flaw" listed is minor scuffs on the outer shipping box. They should be delivered sometime the middle of next week. I'm looking forward to getting back in the Klipsch Heritage fold after a 12-yr. absence. Here's hoping for smooth sailing ahead!🥂 ...and here's another one (or two) to everyone staying healthy, happy and covid-free! 🥂🥂

    Back at the end of 2018 I took a flyer on a pair of very beat up La Scalas that I came across on CAM that were somewhat local to me. When I first saw them I really was not sure if I wanted to tackle them, even at the price. https://www.canuckaudiomart.com/details/649485658-klipsch-la-scala-speakers/ I didn't even check to see if they played, the drivers and Xovers were the least of the worries for this ugly ducklings! Once I got them home, I fired them up in the garage and after fiddling with the Xover connections, I got them to play and they didn't sound all that bad. They still looked awful so I then went to scrapping off all the crappy vinyl peel and stick that some genius decided to apply to them. This revealed a very poor exterior, major chips and missing part of the top layer the Birch. That's how they sat in my basement TV room, playing fine until a few month ago when I dragged them out to the garage to do a refurbish job. Fortunately this February I scored a pair of all original, minty Type AAs on Cam for $150cnd. https://www.canuckaudiomart.com/details/649590390-klipsch-type-aa-crossovers/ I do have a pair of Jupiters and a quad of Blue Cactus caps sitting here with plans of a pair of Full Monty networks, but have not followed up on that yet. Rather than try to fill all the numerous blemishes I decided to do similar that I did with my Peavey FH-1 bins and laminate the exterior with 1/2 BB via screws and PL. Unlike the FH-1s, I decided to give them more of an Industrial look, even got some handles and then replica badges from Burton on FleaBay. And, here they are...

    The first time I heard Klipsch was the fall of 1971, I was 16 and went to my boyfriends house. His Dad has Klipschorns and I was literally blown away! We put on Led Zeppelin’s LP and played Stairway to Heaven. My prior listening experience had been a transistor radio, so you can imagine the Jolt my ears heard! I wound up marrying my boyfriend and the first year we were married, we built our own set of speakers with the help of my Dad. They were built from the Speakerlab Klipschorns plans, man they sounded great. In 1987, we were finally able to afford the real deal, Klipschorns!! We even contacted Klipsch engineer Gary Gillum to help us design the perfect room. We closed in part of our 3 car garage and built our music room. It sounded fantastic! Fast forward to 2001. We decided to move to the Nashville area and began looking at houses. We literally looked at dozens of houses, (always tape measure in hand)! One Sunday afternoon we were out looking at homes and passed by a brand new subdivision and decided to check it out. There were only about half a dozen homes in it ,but the views were gorgeous. We topped this hill and there was this home, not finished yet, but a big sign in the yard that said, come on in and see the difference. We went in and every turn we took made us love this home even more. When we climbed the steps to the room over the garage, our jaws dropped. There it was, the room that our Klipschorns would fit in! Out comes the tape measure and YES, they would work perfect! Fast forward almost 20 years later and we still have the Klipschorns (and a second pair) and basically a whole home filled with Klipsch LOVE! I personally have no clue why so many ladies out there don’t like music, but dang, I’m sure not one of them! I will post pics soon! Happy listening friends!

    Great interview with Roy. Roy I truly believe PWK would be so proud of the direction and dedication you have given to horn development and the Heritage Line in particular...!!! I wish PWK could have been around to see and hear your development of the KPT-1802-HLS and KPT-1502-HLS which still continues to amaze me especially when combined with the Jubilee system... miketn 👍🙂

    First things first FIL's stroke was a brain stem stroke[?]. Got to the hospital too late to mitigate damage. The good news... he's being discharged -- this afternoon. Has a bit of a hitch in his gait.. but... He seemed to enjoy the attention from the nurses... as long as they were female. Thank to all for the thoughts/prayers! Oldtimer --- never ate squirrel Cremated eggs are bad. Every blow up a potato? They're pretty bad. The popcorn stink is still lingering. I've had a busy day. Started out with normal things. Vac and empty the vac. Then I went up on the roof to do a patch. Came down and had to launder my clothes. Threw them in the machine and all it did was make noise. Oh great?!? A plastic "fuse" in the drive broke... Easy fix, but still have to pull the motor/pump and install the part, which I have/had several. Wife has learned about overloading... I went to our salvage yard and pulled 3 or 4 when I had the opportunity... so, I had parts.Then it rained. The roof patch was successful. Then I fried some chicken....

    Jim Croce was great. It’s really sad that he was forgotten so soon.

    Grandson needed a new computer desk. We remodeled his room, his choice of wall color and floors. He also picked out the color of stain for the desk one was not dark enough so we went with red oak and came back with provincial over it to get some of the red out. A few coats of poly satin with a car sprayer and left to sit a couple days. He's happy with it, a new bed frame (different size bed) and end tables are next. he also picked the size and shape of the desk. Regular 2x6's were used, he wanted that look.

    Well finished and fired them up today. One of my La Scala test songs is 2Cellos Thunderstruck. At fairly loud volume regular La Scalas just squall through this. Not a hint of squall tonight and the articulation is pretty amazing. I am thinking this is clearly better than mid braces which is way better than stock sides. I ended up missing supper because fiddling with a bunch of songs with a grin on my face was more fun.

    Northern Wisconsin or the UP of Michigan... awesome in the summer. Two kinds of mosquitos -- the ones small enough to get through your screens and the ones big enough to open the screen door and come in.

    Roy: Congratulations on your interview with audio review icon, Steve Guttenberg! Verna and I watched both videos and we were riveted to the screen. It was wonderful seeing your smiling face again, especially because we missed seeing you this spring in Hope. You were an exceptional interviewee; no "ummm's" and "ahh's"! LOL We learned even more than we already knew from our time spent together in the past. We're so very proud of you and you could see that Steve was almost giddy to have you on his show. It was most apparent that Steve has very deep respect for you, Paul and the products. We both miss you so very much, brother. We can't wait to see you next year! Love, Glenn & Verna

    Cleaning out my basement and some things just have to go. It's amazing how many interconnects and speaker wire I've accumulated over the years..... I've managed to sell all the gear I'm gonna sell....for now. This forum has been really good to me. Free KG speakers just come and pick them up and they're yours. They need work but nothing out of the ordinary considering their age. 1. KG 3.2 Cosmetically they're in good shape. Probably need crossovers but they do work as is. 2. KG 4.2/Black Cosmetically a little rough but nothing a sanding and some paint can't take care of. Probably need crossovers and one woofer. 3. KG 4.2/Light Oak Cosmetically in pretty good shape. Probably need crossovers and one woofer. I was combining one good speaker from each pair of 4.2's to make a working set. They're FREE.....come and get em! I'll drive a reasonable distance to meet you if neccessary. Located in Powers Lake, WI (near Lake Geneva) between Chicago and Milwaukee. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Found this the other day when the guy at the record store was counting up my loot. Some similarities to the one I played a few times in the last month or so but I believe the man gave Robert Cray an idea about making music!

    No power for 12 hours. Storage shed took a direct hit with power tools, lawn mower, pressure washer, golf clubs, weed eater, blower. Things that can be replaced..... Made coffee for two sets of neighbors using the gas cook top and french press. Thanks for asking Eric.

    Morning Dave. Don't usually spin vinyl this early but since I've started streaming lately I thought I better give the Rega/Hana a little work out. Hot and humid and will be all week😑

    Yeah I don't think most people understand what a leap in technology the 1502 and 1802 HLS represents. It may be the biggest leap since the shearer system came out.

    Got troubles here tonight. Lightning popping a lot in the last hour, turned the ac up to 83 so it wouldn't come on soon, turned John Wick off set it to record to save the tv if it gets close. But the problem really is duplicates. Duplicates of a couple that are favorites of millions all over the place. A close to or maybe original DECCA pressing of one that is seriously scratched from looking at it, but sometimes if you can't feel them they do sound good. Flipped the switch on my protector to keep extra current from getting to my rig, so no comparisons for a little while at least.

    I'm restoring my 1962 Triumph 350cc motorcycle. Needed a piston barrel because mine would have to be re-sleeved. So I find one with still plenty of life to it on ebay in merry old England. It arrives this week packed in an ancient rusty metal container. The security of the barrel is shored up with sawed up pieces of a wooden bannister and what looks to some ancient wood flooring. Scatter throughout are some very oily pieces of what looks to be paraffin paper. It worked. Everything was fine. I may be wrong, but I'd like to think that that ancient metal box was an ammunition box from the Battle of Britain. it's certainly at least that old.
