  4. yes i have some amps ... collected during a few years (over 40 years). I also have Proton AA2120, Hiraga 8W class A Monster (DIY), Yves Cochet AL2 (EL34 PP - a french tube (or valve i do not know how you call it) amp maker). I tried Topping D Class amp, a little Musical Fidelity, a SAE 2200 power amp, a very old NAD 1020 preamp and some more. Over 40 years of trying to find the good sound .. In speakers, i had Onken with Iwata horn - jbl 2440 drivers, jbl 2405 tweeters, Fostex FT90h, T925, FT65, .. B&C drivers, Atlas sound pd-5vh when i tried to make La Scala clones, ect ect .. now i am trying to have a simple and good working hifi system .. with Cornwall IV speakers, McIntosh amp, an old Sony CDP-X7ESD cd, a little Logitech squeezebox Touch streamer, a Topping dx7s dac that i will not more use when i will receive my McIntosh MA7200 amp.

  5. Awesome Pics @MicroMara I sure hope I can get MA 530 MP Needle that clean. It is going to be a chore though. I do feel for you in the setup, VTA, AS, Azi, Zenith, but all worth it for sure. I got Christmas today, the bearings have arrived I now have to remove tone arm from the table so as to properly get the install done. So lots of work ahead. Running R2R in the background today.

  8. Mac sound. It's very polarizing. You either love it or hate it, not much middle ground. Hopefully the OP will be in the "Love" camp. As for high powered SS amps, I have heard a few good 'uns. But it is my opinion that with horns, low(ish) tube power is where it's at. And it's also my opinion that most people who think their high powered SS amp sounds just dandy on a pair of Cornwalls would like their speakers even more with a high quality tube amp. As always, YMMV....

  11. i just got a pair of Cornwall speakers that have been sitting in a barn shed for some years. so after first dusting and some inspections (and a little shock about the size they are sitting in my living room) i've connected them to my amp, replacing a pair of quartets. info from the tags sn: 21T096 / 21T097 i found they are from 1979 one has initials OD, the other ASL They have been playing for a couple of days now, and i'm thinking about restoring them. The state is sort of oke, there are some chips in the woodworks and the cloth has some rips. before i begin, i have some questions about restoring them 1. i'm not sure if i want to repaint the speakers or put veneer on them. Is the colour bound to the serial number? ( for now i would like to keep them as stock as possible, only repair what is needed ) 2. as seen in one of the photos, it looks like the sides have a veneer (there is a layer peeling off), but from the top it looks like they are painted? 3. in case of a repaint, what paint is advised ? 4. does the front panel have another paint or brush or is it the same as the side panels ? 5. what can be used for filling the chips on the corners and edges ? 6. should the caps be replaced? i've read about the JEM Performance Audio caps. is there a European dealer of JEM ? 7. one of the plastic tweeter housings has a hole, it look like the connector was replace to the left bottom. does the hole affect the sound ? 8. are there other points i should think about when restoring them ? thanks for any help

  13. Hello everyone. After hours of research of what to build for my speaker setup I landed on buying these speakers and subs. 2x Klipsch PRO-250RPW LCR and 2x Klipsch PRO-1000SW So because of delayed delivery on the subs, I have after 8 weeks started building the wall, making everything ready. I read the cut out measurements and they are correct. I wanted to have firm drywall around the speakers and subs, so I build cases in 2x4" WITH THE SAME MEASUREMENTS AS THE CUT OUT HOLE! I then mounted the cases on the studs (with millimeter precision) and started dry'walling. After reading up on the dog legs, i'm afraid they will collide with the 2x4" cases I built so they won't lock up behind the drywall? Here is a picture of my wall as it is now. Is there any hope of being able to mount the speakers without issues, given my measurements are correct.

  15. Sorry for the repeat post. billybob, I really appreciate your input. That’s exactly what I needed for a starting point. Looking at eBay the Heresy’s are all over the place. Many are around $1500, but you can’t go by what someone is asking, only by sales, of course. marvel, I noticed the date on the round terminals of my HIIs is 1985. My records say I paid for them in Oct 1986, so who knows? I do know I’ve had some almost surreal moments listening to them over the years. All kinds of music. The stereo shop put Sade Smooth Operator on when I listened to them and I’d never heard speakers sound so good. Of course, he probably had them wired to $4000 amps in the shop! My friends all loved them and we had some good times together. As I’m sure you probably have with yours. Enjoy!

  16. Thanks for all your input. Yes, the stands/risers are about 3” in front and an inch on the back. Just designed to aim the sound upward, rather than across the floor, I’d guess. I took a couple pics of the top right on both cabinets. I’m not seeing any blemishes, but not sure exactly what you are seeing in the first pics. Edges are sharp looking to me. I’ll keep looking to see if I saved the original crossovers. Very surprising, but I do understand the value in “original”, so thanks for the advice.

  22. Fabulous looking! I thought the ones with the round terminal cups were from a couple years earlier. My HIIs are used, without the labels on the backs, but have the square terminal cups. I would have to open one up again, but IIRC the inspection sticker on the inside of mine was dated 1986. It doesn't really matter, they are still HIIs... I love mine. Bruce

  25. Steeling signals has been going on for a long time. That can be thwarted by calling a double signal---signal that your going to throw the ball but what it really means is a run. Then it could be predicated on the defense that the opposing team is in to go to a third option automatically. But I don't think that football players are that cerebral. Then again a ten deck stack stopped counting cards---maybe. JJK

  27. The "Harper Collins Study Bible" and the "Jeremiah Study Bible" sound like they provide different angles on the material, with one offering a more scholarly approach and the other focusing on the sermon and practical aspects. This duality can be a great way to gain a comprehensive understanding of the historical and religious context of the time, as well as its relevance to modern interpretations.

  32. @Deang, a little late to the party, work is really starting to get in the way of this forum, but I snapped a picture of the terminal cup/plate. Ya, who knows what someone else did to those La Scalas before I got them? They had an $8 Rat Shack piezo tweeter in one tophat and one K-43 ohmed out at 20 ohms. For eight years now I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with my perception because a pair of pristine AA crossovers, even after recapping with pseudo-authorized (mylar) capacitors, has never sounded like “all that and a bag of chips” in any of the FIVE pairs of La Scalas I’ve owned over the years. Each pair had K-55-Ms… I never found the midrange to be too loud, I always found the treble not as bright as I would have liked, but that is not uncommon for me. Before recapping I had to put my ear up to the K-77s to ensure they were working. Now though, even with colorful puppets to explain what I was hearing, thanks @mboxler, I’m left with questions. Hypothetically, not suggesting anyone modify any Klipsch product, how would a person correct for the overlap using an AA crossover with a dual phase plug driver? I seem to remember a suggestion to add a .35 mH coil to the positive squawker output, a la A/4500. Would another possibility be to add the same elliptical filter used in the AL series of crossovers and change the .245 mH to .125 mH? I really want to hear what the fuss is all about with the AA crossover. For starters, I imagine the un-smudged crossover would result in better imaging. So is what I’ve been hearing more like an “A” with better tweeter protection? Another question now springs to mind… how did the widely accepted crossover points become 400 and 6000 Hz if the graph clearly shows 4500? …my whole life has been a lie, lol

  34. Manual says 40 over a wide band which is fine in the real world. Here is the manual: ma7200om01.pdf Page from manual showing damping: As KT88 said I believe you might find you love this combination with your Cornwalls.. I also like that Tone Control is available for less than ideal recordings and sometimes helpful in less than ideal room/setup limitations. miketn

  35. I don't know this type of Mcintosh amp personally, but I'm sure you didn't do anything wrong. Worst case scenario, you have a major brand amp that sells well over and over again. But more importantly, I think it will sound very good with your Cornwalls. I recently bought an old quad 606, just a little less power than your Mcintosh MA7200, but also a very powerful amp. It runs fantastic with my 1977 Lascala and also with the underground Junilee. With your Cornwall as a big bass reflex box, the control ability of the MA7200 also should have a positive effect. You can't say that a small tube amp is always better or that a powerful transistor is always better. It is the synergy of all components in every single case plus the room and your personal taste. Your MA7200 has to my knowledge even output transformers. Be confident and look forward to the amp. And take your time to get used to it. I am very curious about your impressions. You have done nothing wrong with this amp I believe. Enjoy it.

  36. I guess if he feels the need for 200 wpc for "transients", he is willing to forgo sound quality for sheer power. Nothing wrong with that as long as you know the deal.

  39. Update: I went ahead and bought the speakers. These are first set of truly premium speakers and they live up to my expectations. Amazing! They are being driven by a vintage Pioneer SA-7100 and even set dead flat, the sound is great. I’m not used to hearing distortion free at a low volume level. Thanks everyone!

  41. Could I get some further advice? What do you all think of these? http://treasure.craigslist.org/ele/5681600310.html I contacted the owner, and he also sent me the following pictures of the backs. There don't appear to be the normal signed stickers, but I see what appear to be the serial numbers, stamped in the wood. If I am reading them right, and using the codes from this site correctly, this (the x) suggests that they were built in 1982. But I'm a bit confused because I would have expected the serial numbers to be 7 digits, rather than 6 digits. And I don't see the codes for the wood finish, which would normally appear on the stickers. What do you think? Is the absence of the signed stickers a problem or deal breaker? Other thoughts? Other than these issues, the speakers look like just what I was hoping for: nice B style with the tweed fabric. Thanks so much for your help! George
