  1. I appreciate the offer of trade, but looking to sell only.
  2. Good advice, I'm sure for my move south. I've enjoyed my time in NC, but am looking forward to our move to Florida.
  3. A few photos taken today. I'm hoping photos are attached successfully.
  4. Having difficult time with downloading photos - but the serial numbers of speakers are: 13R760 and 13R761 The original tags are intact on back of each speaker. I'll add additional photos once I've figured out how to do so.
  5. Very difficult decision to sell my Cornwalls. I have been attempting to downsize my systems for the past 1 and 1/2 years as I expect my living space to become smaller once my wife retires and we relocate to Florida. At this time, don't expect to replace these Cornwalls - in fact - will likely sell my Scott LK-48 integrated amp which I primarily used to drive my Cornwalls. I have several McIntosh Solid State amps and a McIntosh tube preamp and McIntosh solid state preamp which I intend to keep long term. I also have a pair of Quad ESL-2905 speakers which I intend to keep. I'll likely keep an eye out for a smaller pair of speakers which I can use with one of the McIntosh front ends.
  6. Selling my Klipsch Cornwall speakers. I'm second owner of this pair of Cornwalls. Speakers are in very good cosmetic condition, with only a very few minor marks on cabinets. I'll add more photos later today of cabinets, drivers. Speakers include original B-3 crossovers as well as upgraded ALK crossovers. Also have the original K-77 drivers, as well as Crites CT-120 drivers. Speakers have sequential serial numbers (I'll add serial numbers later today - I believe these were produced in 1979) as well as original cartons. I purchased the risers from Crites, so they are not original. Asking $1,350 for everything. Speakers are located in Chapel Hill, NC and for local sale only.
  7. I would say biggest difference between Pass Labs and McIntosh, which I heard, was the Pass Labs was possibly a little more clean and "analytical" sounding. I personally prefer the McIntosh front end with the Klipsch Cornwalls. Relative to tubes, I have a McIntosh C-22 preamp which I'm currently using in another system. I don't intend to sell the C-22 and will likely bring it into this system in place of the C-28 sometime in near future. I also have a refurbished Scott LK-48 integrated amp which I sometimes drive the Cornwalls with. I'm always impressed with the Scott and Cornwalls. At some point (would need to sell something I currently have) I would like to try a Single Ended Tube amp. I've never heard one perform, but there are many posts describing how well they perform with Heritage Klipsch speakers.
  8. I listen to vinyl, at most, 10% of time, the rest of time I stream music. While I enjoyed the Clearaudio turntable, I had owned a Denon previously, and regretted selling it. The vintage look and convenience of "auto stop/lift" make it more desirable for me.
  9. Just an update to my Cornwall system. Sold the Pass Labs amp/preamp and Clearaudio turntable. Now using McIntosh amp/preamp and Denon turntable. I've yet to put original crossovers back in - just enjoy their sound too much as they are.
  10. Thanks for positive comment - I appreciate it. My Cornwalls have upgraded ALK crossovers and I put the CT120 drivers in after I bought them from original owner. With the Scott LK-48 integrated they sound wonderful to me. I'm pleasantly surprised how now they sound with the Pioneer receiver.
  11. Just hooked my Pioneer SX-1980 up to my Cornwalls and pleasantly surprised how well the combination sounds.
  12. Thanks for comments. I've been sufficiently impressed with the Cornwall speakers with ALK X-overs performance - I put the Pass Labs equipment in place of McIntosh front end. Also added turntable to hear how vinyl sounded. I'm extremely pleased with how this system sounds. It images extremely well and the soundstage is both wide and deep. I intend to listen to this system as is for several weeks and then put the B3 X-overs in to hear difference which the X-overs make.
  13. Getting ready to simplify my systems over the next several years as I get ready to retire and relocate. I have some nice McIntosh pieces, which I intend to keep given how they perform - plus I'm a fan of the older McIntosh pieces. I decided to find a pair of Cornwall speakers (I've owned several pair in past and like their performance and their flexibility with matching up to low power amps) to use with the McIntosh pieces. Picked this pair of Cornwall I speakers up Saturday in Rochester NY. Single owner speakers, wth original cartons and a set of ALK crossovers in addition to original B3 crossovers. Hooked them up this morning and happy with how the system sounds. Only pending change, as I sell other systems, is replacing the MC2105 amp with a McIntosh tube amp. Very glad to own a pair of Heritage Klipsch again.
  14. Couldn't agree more with these sentiments. I have owned most Klipsch Heritage speakers (Belles, Cornwall, Chorus I, Forte II, Forte I, as well as RF-63, and RF-7 Series II) and enjoyed them all. If I had room, I'd have the K-Horns listed in Raleigh currently. I'm a big fan of Klipsch speakers. I have multiple 2 channel systems and just put a pair of Bose 901 Series VI speakers with a Pioneer SX-1250 receiver. Part of reason for putting this system together is memory of visiting a stereo shop in Elmira, NY in late 70's and hearing same system - best sound I had ever heard to that point (clearly, there were likely better systems available at the time). I've been listening to the Pioneer/Bose system since last night. To say "no lows and no highs" would not be how I would describe their sound. In listening position, sound level is 65 Db and is very satisfactory.
