  1. Thanks for all of the replies. I missed out in the deal and am still looking.
  2. Thanks for he replies, reviving this because I have rethought it. I have another room with perfect corners on the front walls but no rear wall, (opens onto stair landing.) Would the absence of a rear wall be a problem?
  3. Hey Bama Mike, Im not far away in Bham. Nice set up!
  4. Thanks for the replies. I’m using a Dehavilland Ultraverve preamp. I’ve enjoyed the Vandys over the years but I recently acquired some Forte IIs that I’m using in a second system with Bottlehead pre and Pass ACA monos. The Fortes got new Crites xovers. I had some Forte I’s in the main system years ago but changed to Thiels and later the the Vandys because my room was too boomy with the Forte I. My room has since been improved. Listening to the Forte II’s in the 2nd system reminded me about the visceral experience from horns and I’d like to try the Cornwall’s in my main system.

  6. I may have a good deal on a pair of like new Cornwall III. My current speakers are Vandy 3A Sig. My Bryston 4B SST works well with these. I saw a q/a on the Crutchfield site under the Cornwall III listing where a customer with a 200 wpc amp is advised that 200/ch is too high. This doesnt seem right for normal listening volumes but the Cornwall IIIs cease to be a good deal for me if I’m going to need to replace my amp too.
  7. I use the DeHavilland Ultraverve, can be had used for your budget. There is a remote version.
  8. My listening room/theater has acoustic foam covered with painted cloth to match the interior on front and rear walls, side wall are painted sheet rock. The foam really improved the sound (Forte II/Crites) I am interested in Khorns but the front wall covering will result in corners that have acoustic foam in half of each corner. Can anyone predict how this will affect the corner speaker performance?
  9. Moray, Can you describe/link to a photo/plan for a the La Scala riser?
  10. Thanks for the suggestions. I missed on a couple of CL deals but still searching. Is it recommended to remove the old veneer. If so, how? Sander/heat gun?

  12. see below https://www.audioxpress.com/news/klipsch-refreshes-iconic-cornwall-speaker-at-rocky-mountain-audio-fest-2019
  13. It's disappointing to me about the corners still being a requirement. I can't put them in corners-this quote from the Klipsch website got my hopes up. eliminates the need for the loudspeakers to be positioned tightly in the corner of a listening room
