  1. Micah's dad is my best and oldest friend. In the late 60's, another friends' dad had a McIntosh/Klipschorn setup that was our introduction to quality hi-fi, and we both heard it for the first time together, and were flabbergasted and dumbfounded right from the get go. How could an album sound so live and real?? Needless to say, the passion for high quality music reproduction has been prominent in our lives ever since. Last year, Micah introduced me to DAC and streaming music, I was so old school, I hadn't a clue. I owe him a big thanks for that, and I know he must be super pleased to have scored these Forte 2s. It can be a small world, eh?
  2. I believe my friend Micah from K.C. bought them. A young man who is a true hi fi enthusiast, same as me...but I am not young anymore!
  3. If you have Tidal or similiar, give this track a spin. The lows are hair raising thru a fine system. Not to mention the stellar guitar work.
  4. Is the factory warranty transferrable?
  5. If so, why wouldn't he list it here under Garage Sale?
  6. These are B stock as confirmed on the labels. Consecutive #s. What do you all think would be a good counter offer on these? I don't see any flaws except for a slight light stain on one of the woofers.
  7. Suspension Blackbird Declan ... all by Jeff Beck
  8. Hook 'em up! I drove my Chorus IIs with my 45wpc Marantz 2245 for several years. About a year ago I upgraded to a new Yamaha AS2200 (90 wpc) integrated. Let us know how you like 'em!
  9. Hey fellas, I appreciate all the various viewpoints, and all are valid and well taken. I did not mean to pit 2 great speakers against each other in a "duel" lol! If I decide to get new or lightly used Cornwalls, my Chorus' will be going to a friend. who really wants them bad, so it's not like I will never hear them again. And to pass on great speakers to a much younger man, would offer me some level of satisfaction. I do believe appreciation for quality hi-fi is a gene that not many people have. Anyways, I still haven't decided, and am going to dwell on it for a few months. It is a lot of scratch to shell out. I should really be happy with what I already have...and I am! It is just the lure, the temptation, to dip my toes into the luxury upgrade Heritage waters...is a considerable temptation indeed!
  10. I have listened to the CWIV at Common Wave in Los Angeles, and yes, they are awesome. Looking at the spec sheet, the the CW gets a little deeper on the low end than my Chorus IIs. I admire the LaScalas, but I don't have room for those plus a sub, so that's off the table. I just was hoping to find someone here who is able to answer my question, based on their own experience.
  11. I have a pair of minty Chorus IIs (w/crites xovers & ti 'phrams) and am pretty pleased with them. I am debating with myself over passing them along to my friend's son, who has offered to buy them, and getting the Cornwall IVs. Has anyone here made the same move? If so, your thoughts on the audible differences would be appreciated.
  12. Check out a well recorded dynamic jazz cd: Gordon Goodwin's Little Phat Band: An Elusive Man.
  13. I agree with Bubo, and would recommend the Heresy IVs. May be a bit smaller than what you desire, but it makes the most sense for your room, as it won't need to be close to a wall to be efficient.
