  1. I don't have cats or an answer to fixing your scratches, but I purchased glass tops for my Cornwalls to prevent anyone from doing anything I can't stop in time. The problem I have with glass tops is that mine do have a tendency to slide easily. I would be worried that one of the cats kicks it off when taking off. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

    I went back through my messages, couldn't find the picture, but I recall you could tell it had been played, not rough, just played, ok maybe rough. Anyway, she did state it was from 65' and I believe it was black.
  3. I had a similar situation with a watch I sent in for repairs/refurbishing. Typically top notch service from this dealer, but not this time. No updates, no emails, phone calls, nothing. Every time I called to talk to the branch manager, they were never there. I told the last person I talked to that I needed to hear from him by the end of the day with a resolution as I was told multiple excuses and the dealer kept blaming the manufacture. Finally I called the manufacture and got the complete story. It was as simple as being on the phone for 25 mins. Maybe try calling Marantz and asking them?
  4. When did you order? Lots of items are out of stock, I ordered a dishwasher and there were 15 coming in towards the middle of May with 100+ people waiting on them. I did order a Marantz SR5015 from accessories4less on Wednesday and received it that following Saturday. Maybe your local dealer ordered theirs later than everyone else? Have you checked stock at other distributors?
  5. I voted no, but then after thinking about I would for research purposes. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

    This last year a gal posted a Fender Strat made in USA for dirt cheap, like $400 dirt cheap. Don't know how accurate the serial number was and if looking up years based on the serial is correct, but when I did, it was something in the late 60s early 70s. When I messaged her that the guitar may be worth more, she said she knew and was selling it to someone for $500.00. I never knew a guitar could play fast until I watched an interview with Buddy Webster about designing and building the Dean From Hell for Dimebag Darrell. Very interesting what they did to that body style. Dimes always liked that guitar, not just because of looks, but because at the time they were cheap at pawn shops. Buddy helped design the guitar to how it plays/sounds today. I'm sure Dean's builds aren't nothing comparable to what Dean did, but very interesting none the less.

  7. I stream Spotify from phone to car stereo no problems. Laptop to monoprice hybrid integrated can be choppy, but I chalked that up to the internet in my office. Stream Spotify to Shield and chromecast with no issues. My guess it's the device that sends/receives that is the issue. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  8. This sounds interesting. Any pics to give a better idea how it looks?
  9. Sorry to have just seen this, RIP. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  10. I have seen similar repairs that worked as well. Being a passive, I would think that it is less crucial.
  11. The question didn't need to be asked as mine were not original as mentioned in thread. Even all that being said and as I explained to someone who told me my speakers weren't worth a cent as they did not contain the original components, even if i was to replace them with the original K-33s (that I could have probably purchased for under $500), I don't believe they still are worth 2k. Ironically, I believe I traded you those K33s for the Eminence Kappas that were in the Cornwalls. To answer your question, as someone had mentioned, I needed to move on. Still crying today as those Cornwalls were somewhat special to me, one of the best sounding speakers out there (regardless of mods), and the wife even liked the looks (Yes the new ones are growing on her, but she really liked the cane on raw birch). Still crying here, but fortunate/grateful to own Cornwall IVs (another one of the worlds greatest speakers) Bottom line, anything is worth anything that anyone is willing to pay.
  12. Apparently "vintage, all original" is the thing now and people are willing to pay top price for it. I was told if my Cornwalls would have been untouched with all original components, they would be worth twice what I was asking/sold them for.

    Good go to hear from you! Funny how your talking Les Paul, just this morning I was listening to some GNR at the gym and Coma was playing. Great song all around, but get to about 6 minutes and on and it hits a certain way. One has to think "if one wanted to know how a Les Paul should sound, this is it" . At least that's my opinion. Slash has to be one of my favorite Les Paul players out there. A guy who makes that guitar sound as it should, totally jams. Coma - YouTube
  14. I just ordered a new Marantz AVR that has HEOS. One thing lead to another and found this HEOS drive zone amp that looks pricey, but once price come down $1000, it may be worth it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Denon-HEOS-Drive-HS2-Multi-Room-Streaming-Amplifier-Black-/174684545086?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286 Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  15. That is one dilemma I do have, no individual volume control. I do have it setup up that nothing is over powering.
  16. Looks to have been a pricy unit. But if each zone can be controlled as mentioned along with digital sources, that is a win. My Integra doesn't have that option, here is the route I took. Integra zone 2 out to Parasound zamp V.3 running a pair of KSB 1.1s, daisy chained to another Zamp running another pair of KSB 1.1s, daisy chained to another set allowing a total of 3 zones. Upper deck, lower deck, and garage. Now zone 2 is analog only, so that leaves DAC input, Radio, and Phono. DAC and Radio are the easiest 2 to controlled via phone app. However, I couldn't turn each zone off individually, so the 12 volt out from AVR was a no go. I purchased 3 12 volt wall worts, spliced in the connection to each 12 volt in of each amp. Plugged each wort into a smart outlet strip controlled via phone app. Yup its seems wonky, once working, it has proven well. I recently purchased a Marantz SR5015, so not sure how it will all work.

    They'd be worth it, come with extra caps, plus you'dget to hear Cornwall IV if you haven't yet. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

    I really hate selling these as I planned to hand them down to one of my kids, but unfortunately I don't have storage space. So up for sale they go. If memory serves, they should 81s with B1 networks. Networks have had cap replacements with Dayton 1%, if I locate the Sonicaps I will throw those in as well. Woofers were replaced with Eminence kappa 15c, not sure why and wish I hadn't but it is what it is. I'd say that do to some scratches, grill wear, and the mods, I'd rate them 7 out of 10. Asking $1000.00 O.B.O. for the pair, cash, local pickup in Omaha, Ne, 69157. Feel free to ask any questions. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  22. You may try https://critesspeakers.com/ Or you may have to make some. Are you looking for a set of Cornwalls? Where are you located? Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  23. Probably done once any screw is removed.
  24. More so the path I guess, how does the signal split (other than High/low, obivioulsy) I guess to me the schematic is quit clear.
  25. On another note, I am glad to see more and more audio shops with these offerings. Its nice to be able to hear before you listen.
