    Cornwall return

    Nice set up...congrats..
  6. Just to share my experience. I just replaced my K-77M driver-to-horn gasket with the "Garlock Style 3000 Blue-gard compressed non-asbestos" sheet gasketing (1/32 inch thickness). I could hear the improvement especially (at least to my hearing) it eliminates the high-end distortion that usually heard whenever I maximised the treble gain on my pre-amp (I'm using VTA-12 tubes pre amp). Does anybody has the same experience by replacing their K-77 driver-to-horn gaskets especially when there are NO aftermarket gaskets for K-77M driver-to-horn? My Cornwalll is the 1981 version with all original stocks and Bob Crites' B2 crossovers inside. Cheers, Jimmy

    Your first Klipsch experience?

    My first Klipsch experience was in 2008 when I decided to get a 5-channels surround on Klipsch Ref. Series. I'm more to music than movies. Few years ago, I went for 2-channels 1981' Cornwall. Upgraded the crossover, and have it hooked on tubes amp/pre-amp.I love the sound of my Cornwall. Cheers, Jimmy
  8. Congrats on your CW, nice pair... I got mine two years ago and love it especially after I upgraded the B2 crossover from Bob Crites. Cheers, Jimmy

    Tubes Rolling

    Thanks Maynard for the info, I didn't know that rectifier doesn't have sonic signature. Re: the rectifier tubes, what about the voltage differences between 5U families and 5R/GZ families which when I swaped from the first to the latter, I had to bring down the voltage from .65 to .5 dcV? Cheers, Jimmy
