  1. Buyer Beware

    I was fortunate enough to listen to the Encore Kenzie preamp. Pin-drop quiet. VERY transparent sound. Solid build quality. Made Cornscalas and Bell's sing. I would love to own one. tc
  2. Sold. Two KPT 684 subs

    Man, You are going to love those monsters! The best impact (slam factor) of any sub that I have heard. I remember the first time I listened to them. Seti was standing about a foot away and I could see his pant leg blowing around! Congrats tc

    Who designed or worked on the KP600? thx tc
  8. Cornwall III vs. Forte III

    I don't know what to say. Only what I listened to. Heard them in the Klipsch listening room in Hope. I should think that they would give them a fair shot in a demo. ???
  9. Cornwall III vs. Forte III

    How clever...troll
  10. Cornwall III vs. Forte III

    Another try..... Both were placed 8-10' from the wall. No corner or wall gain. The Forte sounded more subdued. Top to bottom. A little "polite" for my taste. Like a speaker that I would use in my office or bedroom. The CW was robust. Much larger sound. Tight and fast LF. Top to bottom "in your face". Can't comment on Imaging for ether. CW having a larger soundstage. Detail was nice in both speakers. tc
  11. Cornwall III vs. Forte III

    Bill, Can't respond. Seems to disappear after a few lines........ How could that be? Is Marketing looking in ???? Just kidding. Will try later. tc
  12. Cornwall III vs. Forte III

    It means that the CW sounded very much better to me and another forum member. tc
  13. Cornwall III vs. Forte III

    A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to A/B the Forte lll and the Cornwall lll. Speaker switching box, with the same gain on each speaker. The difference was jaw-dropping. Disregarding price, the CW lll just smoked the Forte lll IMHO tc
  14. I must think that there were a few Luxman designers left over when Alpine bought them. The "R" ands the "m" series were winners. Been running two M117's (bridged) for years. 600wpc beasts. OK, I do like head room. Pretty pricey for 1990 at $1,300 ea. Known to have a tube like sound for a big SS power amp. Had them re-capped and gone thru about 10 years ago. Now they are dedicated to LF duty with MC 100's on the top. tc
  15. Going Off The Floor

    I think that there is something to be said for coupling the LF to the floor. ?? Welcome
