    First time Klipschorn owner

    Congrats! Your room might not be ideal but it can still work and is better than not having Khorns! FYI: It appears that your LP shelf may be blocking one of the side exits on the right speaker. You may get improved bass if you move that shelf out of the way. Ideally, you want those side openings to be unblocked for at least four feet from the corner of the room (more is better). The walls make up part of the bass horn.
  2. Hi Leslie, sorry for your loss. As others have stated, yes there is absolutely a market for used Cornwalls, especially those in mint condition as yours appear to be in. In case you are not aware, Klipsch still builds the Cornwall today. You've come to the best place for advice on how to sell them and in fact, there is a good chance someone from this forum will end up buying them from you. It sounds like you are in Texas. You might want to post the city you are in as Cornwalls are big and your buyer may need to make vehicle arrangements in the event you aren't just down the street.

    PSA T-Mo..bile / Veterans

    FYI: Sprint also has 4 lines for $100 for Veterans (and non-Veterans). Phones are also often buy 1 get one free.
  5. Buy used. It's unlikely you'll get the one you really want right off the bat. Buying used allows to experiment with different amps with little to no loss upon resale if you buy wisely and decided to try something else.
  6. All amplifiers apply their own brand of coloring. I have yet to hear a solid-state amp who's coloring is more musical to my ears than that of a good tube amp.

    Best female vocals, looking for suggestions

    May as well start off with the GOAT. I've got her "Jazz 'Round Midnight" CD and it's pretty amazing for some of the recordings being from the '50s and '60s.

    Klipsch orn Floor Standing Speakers

    "Listed Price in 1994 $5999.00 each" I don't know what the actual list price was in 1994 but I do know it was nowhere near $5999 each.

    woodworkers in the crowd, finish ?

    Here is the basic color I ended up with on birch veneer (pre-conditioned with MinWax pre-conditioner) and several coats of stain, followed by a couple coats of Watco Danish oil. Keep in mind variances in computer monitors and photo settings, etc. This is probably a bit darker than your speakers but the color does look close. You can't tell from this photo, but as mentioned above, after all the hand rubbing of pre-conditioner, stain, and Danish oil, the surface is glass-smooth with a shine.

    I used Varathane stain with the Cognac stain color. Don't worry too much about the color that is shown on the labels as that just gives you a general idea of what it will look like. It will look different based on what type of wood it is applied to. I may have mistaken what you were describing, but what I was trying to say is that a solid piece of wood (board) will be more likely to warp as compared to plywood. Maybe that was not what you were intending and if so, ignore my comment.

    Klipsch & Drag Racing

    Nice shot! Looks scary -- hope the driver was OK. However, I can't help but think of the irony in this photo with the "Make-a-Wish" car on fire -- reminds me of a birthday candle. P.S. These photos should go in that "Klipsch Spotting" thread (or whatever it's called).
