    lets see YOUR two channel setups

    A fairly recent shot. Driving a pair of Cornie II's and AR 2ax's. Yes, they work well together. Using the Fisher 500C on the 4th row(have since moved it up on the rack) to drive them both, which it does well. Garrard Lab 80 and AR TX(early version of the XA) on the rack as well, with a Yamaha T-2 tuner and a Fisher X100-B integrated which I also use sometime with either pair of speakers. A slightly older wider shot with a view of the other turntable, a Dual 1019 and some of the collection.
  5. And a nice Marantz receiver for cheap also. I have a pair of Cornwall II's already and I'm tempted. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/ele/d/klipsch-cornwall-speakers-2/6425827183.html

    Who's Gonna Be Next?

    Uh, nobody nailed Mario Batali except Mario Batali. Next time maybe he'll keep his fat hands to himself and his fat mouth shut.
  7. Drool. Absolutely gorgeous, and would sound great with Klipsch's. Unfortunately out of my price range, but good luck with the sale. Would sure make a nice Xmas present.

    ZX-7 She doesn't care. Yes, I'm lucky. It'll be 21 years in May. They're not(at least I don't think they are). The Cornies are on an extra set of speakers(Wharfedale W60's) that I had lying around. Big heavy wood boxes, and after reading about the benefits of getting the Cornwall mid horn up to ear level, I did. But I like my 2ax's a lot also, and they are completely unfussy when it comes to placement, so put them on top of the Cornwalls. The 500C easily can drive 2 sets of 8 ohm speakers, so last night wired it all up and here we are. For cosmetic protection, or sonic benefit?

    Wall Of Sound

    Had some time on my hands today, so put my Cornwall's on some boxes(well, old speakers), and then put a pair of AR 2ax's on top of them. Driving them all with a Fisher 500C. Blaring a little bit of St. Stephen, the set up sounds surprisingly coherent. And quite good.
  10. Decided to do my own little experimenting today Had some spare Wharfedale W60's lying around. Haven't been able to sell them, didn't want to just give them away. Reading this thread and some others and thought "what do I have that I could use to go under the Cornies?" Voila! Jury is still out, but it's not bad.
  11. I agree. Ask for a discount and be done with it, assuming you like/love the way they sound. That's really not that bad, although at that price you should expect perfection. Just curious why you didn't ask to examine the speakers before you brought them home? Hope this works itself out for you. Sorry that you have to deal with this headache.

    Tube Amp for newbie

    A lot of nice stuff in these ads. Not cheap, but if the restoration is good not bad either. Worth a look. https://tampa.craigslist.org/pnl/ele/d/stereo-equipment-vintage/6353484703.html https://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/ele/d/dynaco-stereo-70-and-dyna-pas/6351418652.html I see a Harman Kardon Citation II for sale in your area on CL also, but it's $2500. It is easily one of the greatest amps ever, rivaling anything by Mac or Marantz. And then there's this, which looks very interesting. Again, worth a look https://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/ele/d/audiophile-stereo-tube-amp/6339257368.html

    Mazel Tov! But a little maintenance goes a long way.
