  1. Doesn’t matter which model, cosmetically challenged fine too.
  2. Assume you mean the K402 and not the cats (no controlling them). I am using an Ashely Protea crossover, 7.7ms delay to the 402s
  3. Have a pair, and more of their ken so not in the market. Good price, excellent little speakers.
  4. I’ve had a great time catching up on some my kind of TV. Have watched all dropped episodes of Rings of Power thus far. Sound is really outstanding!! Watching Disney Andor tonight. Meh Amazon is stepping up the audio.
  5. 5.1 is Sony bluray player, HDMI out to Marantz 8805 processor. 2 channel is another Sony bluray player, coax out to Topping D90SE dac.
  6. Assuming you have a good stereo system, YES! If you have a good surround system, HELL YES!
  7. 100% agree with the above. Better sound quality than my DSOTM and Wish You Were Here SACDs
  8. I bought them. Going to make Cornscalas 😁
  9. I have used the A-55G/2 in both Heresys and Cornwalls. I recommend them without hesitation, it is the sweetest sounding mid driver of the type IMO.
  10. My tuba table is wonderful with Cornwalls. I have never been anywhere near as satisfied with any non horn sub. CW IVs are very nice speakers, give them the best!
  11. I am looking for a single JBL E-145-8 woofer. One of the woofers in my JBL 4628Bs is distorting quite badly and needs a recone so looking for a spare.
  12. I have the CXA81 at my rural place pushing a pair of large older JBL monitors. It is an excellent sounding amp with a nice quality dac built in and I would expect it to perform well with a pair of Klipschorns. I also looked at the CXA61 at the time, in addition to less power the dac in the lower model is not the same (ESS Sabre SE9016K2M in the CXA81 vs ESS Sabre SE9010K2M in the CXA61).
  13. For pure volume very few watts are needed for the big horns (K-horn/La Scala). Like many posters I have used some pretty low watt amps over the years and volume was never an issue. I have found however I strongly prefer a robust SS amp on the bass bin. The lower watt amps loose bass definition/articulation compared to a good powerful SS amp. Conversely, a smaller amp with a few high quality watts is what sounds best on the mids. For me the perfect combo is a nice Crown class D amp on the bass bins of my K-horns, with a really clear lower watt amp, currently a Topping PA5, on the upper horns (in my case K402s). Also, time alligning makes a HUGE improvement in bass definition as well. Everyone hears a bit differently so...YMMV.
