  1. I agree! I think Klipsch should have reintroduced the Forte II instead of a new, badly-designed Cornwall III. It's an excellent, fault-free Heritage that is not as oversized, overweight, or as unbalanced in horn-vs-direct radiator propagation as the C/W's. I think the C/W I and II are better for jazz and movies than for classical music, whereas the Forte II seems better balanced in that respect to me. What do you think, eth2? Ok I'll bite on the "badly-designed Cornwall III" remark as I'd like to understand why you feel this way? -R
  2. I'm interested in the RF-82's if no one else is. -R
  3. Sold to a fellow forum member, thank you Gregg!! Rick
  4. Thanks all! If it weren't for upgrading to the Cornwall III's these would be keepers for me.
  5. Hooked up the Cornwall III's last night, WOW! I couldn't be more happy with these amazing speakers. They sound as beautiful as they look. Amazingly detailed, great bass and excellent imaging. Thanks again Deene! -Rick
  6. Opps It's my Audiokarma profile that posts my location not my Klipsch one. I'll update that. I'm about 20 mins north of Boston.
  7. It's now time to part with my 1987 Oiled Oak Forte I's They are in great condition and sound excellent. They have been recapped. $450 for a wonderful pair of plug and play speakers that will give you many years of enjoyment
  8. May have been sold. The Craigslist ad is down, Worth a try though. Also, they were down to $1,500. I'm the happy new owner . Went to meet Deene (great guy!) yesterday and we were able to work something out. Beautiful set of Cornwall III's that will be the centerpiece of my gear for many years. -R
  9. Found a beautiful pair that I'll be extremely happy with for years!!!
  10. All PM's have been replied to!
  11. Those Belles look nice! Almost into K-horn territory there.
  12. I tried the guy in VT and got no response a few weeks back I currently have a beautiful pair of Forte I, I'm just looking to get my Cornwall back. I miss them.
  13. Hi All, Been awhile since I've posted here but I'm hoping someone can help me out. I'm looking to buy a pair of Cornwall's. I'm pretty open to condition of the cabs as long as they work well. I prefer black, but I'm certainly open to others as well. I'm located on the North Shore of MA but I'm certainly willing to travel a decent distance for the right pair. Thank you! -R FOUND! Thanks all for the help!
  14. I also made the jump from RF-82 to RF-63. I couldn't figure how 3 6" could sound better then 2 8" then I heard the RF-63's sing. Smoother tighter bass with an all around great sound and excellent sound stage. Plus I know where you can get a nice pair well under $1000 []
  15. I have just my RF-63's hooked up to my Marantz 170dc and Marantz 3250. I get a much fuller sound and deeper bass from that then I do with the Denon and the sub hooked up. Although no watching surround sound on the Marantz gear
  16. You're welcome. If you decide to give it away, I can PM you my shipping address. For a resonable fee it's yours! It will probably be in the Garage Sale section soon. I like the Emotiva idea, been kicking that around for a while. Maybe now is the time to pull the trigger.
  17. Well it's back in the box. I'm moving next week so we'll see what happens when I set everything back up as as 5.1. Something tells me I'll end up with another Marantz and just sell the Denon. Thank you all for the help!
  18. Hmmm tried both suggestions I can feel the sub move slightly. I'm sure there is some setting that I'm missing. It's been a long time since I've owned a HT receiver and I think this one is WAY more then I can handle. It may be a bit much of a sub for me too, lots of settings to choose from. With that said, it there some type of loudness button on the Denon? I had an older Pioneer that fpr whatever reason the sub wouldn't kick in till the loudness button was on Thanks again, -R
  19. Do I need to run the calibration set up after that? It still doesnt recognize the sub. I have it seton Stereo Direct mode and the sub is a Klipsch XW-500d. Stillno luck. Thanks!
  20. I have a Denon 4308ci that I don't know much about. I read through the instuction manual and it isn't very helpful to me. I'm pretty much ready to sell this thing and get back to a Marantz. Anyway with that said, I'm just running my RF-63's and a sub for a 2.1 set up right now. Unfortunatly the sub isnt being picked up for some reason. When I ran the audio set up, it found the sub, but for the life of me I can't get it to work. Am I missing something? I have the speakers set to large and the sub turned on but still nothing. Thanks -R
  21. I've pushed my RF-82 with 3 different vintage Marantz setups. 3250B/170DC/2110 Sounds great, the 170DC has been re-capped. Has a nice warm and full sound 2252B No mods or re-cap sounded very good but slightly bright for a Marantz 2015 OUTSTANDING! only 15 wpc but by far the warmest and most tube like sound of them all. No mods or re-cap on this either. My Fav! Here is where I get beat on by everybody, wait for it, wait for it..... I had the 2252B and the 2015 hooked up to my Heresys. After I hooked it up the the RF-82 I sold the Heresys there was no need for them anymore. The 82's sound much better. Hope my 2 cents helped. Thanks, Rocko
  22. Those rock speakers are nice, a lot of people take them for granite. Ok enough with my poor humor. I really enjoy my KHO-7's on the back deck. Good luck! Rocko
