  1. This very odd, some find the Cornwall bass almost too much in certain rooms.
  2. Looks like the perfect room for Cornwalls to me. Your sitting area should be pretty sweet and you will be able to listen to everything whilst cooking at the far end. A nice large speaker for a large room always seems to work best in my experience.
  3. If nothing within the speaker is disconnected and it isn't an amp issue you are probably looking at a blown tweeter. Replacements are available. They are a good model and worth the effort.
  4. I also use the exact same Marantz unit - highly underrated. You will be fine. It matches well with Klipsch products. go for the best speakers you can find/afford. The Marantz could be changed down the road. In the mean time you will be very pleased. I'd lean towards Fortes or if fortunate Cornwalls.
  5. Good evening all. I have a small KSW 100 sub. Bought it back in 2013 and have used it ever since. I have noticed lately that once the source is turned off it doesn't seem to kick back in when next turned on. For years I kept it on auto. The odd thing is that if I unplug and replug, it goes back into activity. I thought it might be the power bar I had it connected to - I changed it but this same pattern exists. Do the switches go after time? Once I "reboot" it things are fine. Weird...or maybe not. Anyone ever run into this sort of thing?
  6. The Forte IV is an evolution that corrected all the former weaknesses. The new Heresy IV is in the same boat.
  7. Small bookcases up flat against the walls behind the speakers could help.

    I hope you get your 50 years! Love you crazy Americans and hope to spend my winters on the gulf coast of Florida ( family tradition). Going to be 59 in two weeks, just shy of the BIG one. The men in my family are not known for our longevity so I enjoy every minute. If I make 78 I will tie the record set by my father a few years back.

    I hear you , although being a Canadian my metaphor is the last ten minutes of the third period hoping for overtime.
  10. Love it! We used to call it stereo TV. I know several people who are moving back to a straight up two channel system for music/TV movies and ditching the 5,7, 11, 224.12 systems. I do like having a centre but could live without it. What I would consider the perfect solution would be the rise of three channel "stereo" amps.
  11. I don't like the sounds of this at all. I'll stick with streaming Jazz Fm Toronto live and the Radio Tunes channels.
  12. Very interesting design but even larger than than I have now.
  13. This could be the ticket.
  14. Power/surge bars. We still get a lot of sudden power outs which is hard on everything. This winter has been better than most years though.
