  1. Yep, really good deal. Good luck with your sale. Bill
  2. I get the anti-tone control folks but well designed/implemented tone controls like what the Yamaha A-S1000 through A-S3200 have are really nice and the "best" I have ever used. Tiny adjustments really can make a difference(to me) without bloating or negatively transforming the character of the amp. Bill
  3. That's one of them.👍 Bill
  4. I'll get back with you on that. Bill
  5. Believe me that these Yamaha integrated amps are pretty darn potent even though spec'd at mimimum 90w/150w. They all test at minimum 110w/170w all day long. They will have an easy time with Cornwalls. Your ears will give out before the Yamaha even breaks a sweat. A-S1200 test 8 Ω (2 x 110 W), 4 Ω (2 x 172 W) A-S1100 test 8 Ω (2 x 110W), 4 Ω (2 x 193 W) Above tests from different publications so measuring methods may explain the higher 4 ohms test for the A-S1100.

    Getting better and better with each use. Fried eggs last three nights. Bill

    Carbon Steel Pan

    My little thread about carbon steel pans sure did evolve. Bill

    Carbon Steel Pan

    I went two rounds with the oil, salt, potato peel method and about 45 minutes at 400 degrees F in the oven to finish it off. A little blotchy on the edges due to splatter but still very non stick. Bill

  11. Or maybe he is just letting them break in. Bill

    Carbon Steel Pan

    So... you bought aluminum pans? Are the cooking surfaces aluminum or the internal core? Bill

    Carbon Steel Pan

    I may if this De Buyer doesn’t do the trick. It arrives tomorrow. I used Crisco to season my cast iron pans, what you say for carbon steel? Flaxseed, grape seed oil? Bill

    Carbon Steel Pan

    I have been a cast iron pan nut for the last couple of years and have a few different pans in my collection, vintage Lodge, Griswold, Wagner, BSR and modern Lodge. Love them all and use some of them very often. Also recently and somewhat reluctantly(wife wanted) added some All Clad hard anodized non stick pans, 8", 10", 12" to the mix. Surprising, I like them and use them more than my wife. Since I was kind of on a role, and have been researching for quite some time, I pulled the trigger on my first carbon steel pan. Since my primary use will be for searing steaks, I chose this one for a very attractive price. https://www.amazon.com/MINERAL-Round-Carbon-Steel-11-Inch/dp/B00VNQ7PVC/ref=asc_df_B00VNQ7PVC/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198087151093&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=656081970346459374&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9012403&hvtargid=pla-393209246058&psc=1 Any folks with experience with De Buyer or any other brands please chime in with your thoughts or suggestions. Bill
  16. Just curious, what does kicked it's butt mean? Some speakers are voiced to emphasize the low end, midrange, or highs. Maybe the Cornwall IVs are so well balanced that none of the frequency regions over power the other. Bill
  17. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/ele/d/san-francisco-klipsch-rf-iii/7331355856.html If this is for a pair(most likely not) and legit, and near you, go get them. Bill
  18. I know all things are subjective here but I have owned a few Denon integrated amps(PMA-1080R, PMA-700V, PMA-750, PMA-757, etc.) from the 80's/90's and they totally rocked with Quartets, Fortes, and Heresys). Great tonal quality with punchy fast bass. Super reliable. https://audio-database.com/DENON-COLUMBIA/amp/pma-750-e.html https://audio-database.com/DENON-COLUMBIA/amp/pma-700v-e.html https://audio-database.com/DENON-COLUMBIA/amp/index.html Bill
  19. @Rick Speaker, Welcome to the forum. c=cornwall wo=walnut oil T=1979 Not sure about the rest of the numbers. Bill
  20. @kevin347, Welcome to the forum. I really do believe that the 440C and the 404C are more the same than different. With that said, if they will fit, I say save up and go with the RP-504C or RP-450C. You would then not ask yourself "what if". Bill
  21. Option 2: get a third la Scala for the center, keep all else (9.2) Bill
  22. Until my my NAD T175HD takes a dump, it will continue to anchor my HT rig. Now if I had the $$$, this would be my first choice. https://nadelectronics.com/product/m17-v2i-surround-sound-preamp-processor/ Second choice would be this. https://www.anthemav.com/products-current/type=av-processor/model=avm-90/page=overview Third. https://www.anthemav.com/products-current/type=av-processor/model=avm-70/page=overview Bill
  23. When I bought my last pair of RB-35's both tweeters were shot. Bill
