  1. Wow, thanks for all the attention to my post! Haha I bumped the price up by $100 on CL, and 7 people reached out to me, which was quite a surprise. I sold the Khorns but still have the solo vertical Cornwall, and could easily retrieve its matching pair from one of my best friends. Regardless, I truly enjoyed having the v. Cornwall fit just right under my screen, as seen from the photo. If someone is looking for one or two of these, let me know. I'll be in Seattle for the next couple months and will likely visit once a month after that. In no huge rush to sell it as I can certainly find a use for it in the future, even if it's a garage speaker.
  2. The Khorns have been sold to a local Klipsch fan. I still have a vertical Cornwall if anyone needs one, and could track down its matching pair if needed. Cheers, Nate
  3. Thanks, Schu. I suppose the money shot would help! 😎 I haven't done research into shipping, but I do have access to pallets if the buyer can arrange shipping details. Also Schu, while I haven't been on here much of late, I wanted to thank you for your forum contributions. I've learned a great deal from you and others, and it has vastly improved my audio enjoyment over the years!
  4. I'm moving from Seattle area to Okanogan County 3.5 hours away, and won't have a proper setup. I've had these three speakers as my LCR for the last 8-9 years. Great for home theater and even better for music. I've run various amps (Lab Gruppen, HK tube amps, Emotiva) and now a Denon x4300 receiver. I recommend amps for more full-bodied power, asit made a difference in my setup, but I'm thinning the herd in anticipation of moving in early July. The '78 Khorns are consecutive serial numbers and the crossovers are original AA. In solid but not top quality shape with some nicks and scratches, as seen from the photos. Non smoking, pet free home. The Cornwall is from 1972, which I purchased from someone who stood them up the wrong way for a vertical Cornwall. The prior owner was not very careful, hence the scratches on its side which thankfully wasn't evident based on my setup. I upgraded the crossover with the great Bob Crites. The CW pairs very well with the Khorns sonically and visually, and fit perfectly in my home theater setup. I have access to its matching pair, if needed, as I sold it to a friend who hasn't put it to use just yet. See details in https://photos.app.goo.gl/EWi7wfz8AbTj1cut8 The speakers are currently hooked up and ready for demo. I can help you load up on a truck, and am currently not interested in shipping. I do have a trailer, so I could meet in WA state. I drive from Kirkland to Winthrop quite regularly, and sometimes make it to the TriCities. Price is $2,000 for the pair or $2300 for all 3 speakers. I'd prefer to move all 3, but could sell the Cornwall separately depending on interest. I've bought and sold on the forum back in the day, and have 'Bay and AVSForum references, too.
  5. Well, I have resisted selling these for several years, but the demands of family life (2 young kids) and needing extra space require shifting of gears. This forum has been great to me and I have enjoyed mostly lurking for a long time. See pics here: https://flic.kr/s/aHskEojoYa, and let me know if you need any specific angles/shots. 1979 BK WO Belles in decent 7 out of 10 condition with AA crossovers. I replaced crossover caps with Crites parts ~2 years ago. They've been great speakers for me, and my wife grew to love them, but it's time to downsize speakers. Powered with a B&K ST-202 amp for a while (sounded great!) and now a Marantz NR-1604 receiver (underpowered, but never played loud because of the kiddos). Matching serial #s. Price is $1825. Downstairs in my man cave, I have 1970s Klipschorns in 7/10 condition with AK crossovers. I will post pics and more details tonight or tomorrow. I split up a pair of Vertical Cornwalls from 1972 to use as a center channel, which was a great LCR. All caps replaced via Crites. Matching serial #s. Price is $1850. A friend is borrowing the other of the pair of Cornwalls to use with a pair of CF-4 I let him borrow. These speakers sounds so great in a 2.1 setup. Powered by an Emotiva XPA-3. The Cornwall single is $400. If you want the pair, I can easily get the matching one from my friend. Will post pics in the next 24 hours. This post is making me realize how many Klipsch speakers I have owned in the last 7 years, mainly because of this amazing forum! I can't really upgrade from here, but am looking at the DIY route with my father in law. I am not looking to ship these speakers. Hoping the Klipsch community is interested so I don't have to go the Craigslist route. : )
  6. Hi Bill, PM sent. I got the job so I can justify the purchase. : ) Cheers, Nate
  7. If I get a job offer by Monday, I'm totally buying this preamp.
  8. Bumping this thread. I have Belles up front in my living room and have the itch for some surrounds, too. Right now, I'm running a 2.1 setup but have looked around at Klipsch surrounds. I was primarily looking at speaker sensitivity because it's a challenge to mix/match with non-Klipsch speakers when your L/R are 100+db efficient and you pair it with a set that's 88db efficient.
  9. Welcome to the DTS-10 club! I agree that these subs really need to be EQ'd before they play nice. I'm using a Behringer EP 2500 and it definitely does the job.
  10. That's a nice find and I agree with Moray James that these are gems! I've heard my CF-4's with a 3 watt/channel tube amp and a 600 watt/channel Lab Gruppen amp... both amps were outstanding! If you don't go the tube route, definitely do your best to get a power amp if your budget allows. Even though these are very efficient, you will find that they really do love more watts (150-300). They will put out prodigous bass and are very versatile. Off of a normal receiver (I have an HK AVR 3600), it just never sounded quite as good. Good luck!
  11. +1. I have this demo disk. Bought it a few months back. As I don't have a blu ray burner, I paid extra for a forum member to make it. It cost $50 but has so many different tracks that are categorized into 3 segments: 1. Visuals 2. Surround 3. Bass They are all wonderful and I would gladly buy the next demo that comes out as it's a great way to show off the system to friends and family.
  12. Anyone who pays retail for that Energy sub is off their rocker. It's $350 on Amazon, too. Not too shabby. You've picked 3 very solid subs in that price range. I'd still stick with Hsu and never look back, but the other two options are not bad options, either. The downfiring seems like it's suited to you better in case you accidentally kick the woofer on the side firing Energy sub.
  13. I agree with the Hsu recommendation. It's heavier which is always good and the form factors are pretty similar. Ported is going to give you more bang for the buck if power is constant so I think that'd be the way to go for your setup. What are you using to power your wb-14's? I've always wondered what a computer system would sound like if it was powered by something like this: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=310-300
  14. Hmm, I have never seen the ohm rating as a selectable option on any Harman Kardon receivers. It's good to know that that might be the source of the problem, despite whether or not this is something I can change on my receiver. Strange!
