  1. After 18 months of overly cautious searching, I have a pair LSIs' of my own. First set I listened to belonged to @jimjimbo. Like everything I have heard at Jim's, they were impressive. I let 3 or 4 pairs get away for a variety of reasons, but decided that the next I found would come home with me. As luck would have it, the were only about an hours drive. The trim is intact, but will need refinished. The cabinets are very nice and hopefully, with a lot of cleaning and polishing, I can make them beautiful. (SN 1294, 1295) Now, a couple of questions.....Is there a record of serial numbers and production dates?......Are the square magnet K77 tweeters correct?.......are the K55 push connect drivers correct? .....My horn section has "Klipsch" silkscreened in white between the tweeter and squawker but it was covered with a Klipsch badge. Is this correct? I have tested all the components and plan to power them up tonight. AA crossovers look original. I am sure capacitors need upgraded. Any suggestions are welcomed. Jerry
  2. @jimjimbo With possibly the exception of your McIntosh 275, my Fisher 500C makes the most pleasing sounds I have ever heard. The Marantz 8 that I heard was very nice. I need to audition side by side with my 500C to know it different is better. Maybe I should be satisfied, but I would like to try some different equipment. (Industrial LaScalas are still on my shopping list) I am building a new workshop and need some audio equipment to fill the 3000sf space with sound. Jerry
  3. I have been looking at a Marantz 8B or 8 amplifier. Had a chance to hear one locally that was not for sale. Thought it was a very nice sounding amp. There has been one for sale in Atlanta and I have found several on Ebay. I would love to hear from anyone that has personal experience with this amp. Last yearI fell in love with a Marantz 2285, then I could not resist the temptation of a Fisher 500C. ( thanks @Bonzo !! My listening experience has been forever changed) Should I resist the urge to find a vintage Marantz? Jerry
  4. @Pats3of4 I borrowed a router, bought a cutter, carefully measured and marked and mine came out fine. I have almost NO woodworking experience, but asked a lot of questions. Yes, it would have been easier to have been able to buy a motorboard, but it only took a couple of hours.
  5. When you find 60 year old women attractive.😍
  6. @jimjimbo Jim, I'm in Georgia if you are still looking.
  7. With all the Cornwall's that have been upgraded, I thought it would be easy to find "original" X- overs. Jerry
  8. @loudnproud Thanks for the response, I prefer a match to the one I have. I have not seen a X-over marked as you describe. I would like to see a picture. Jerry
  9. I am in need of one original 'B' crossover. I will take a pair but really need just one. My Cornwall's are 1979's and I want to have original parts. Yes, a recapped x-over is fine, but my first choice is "as delivered from factory". Thanks, Jerry
  10. These are about as clean as one will find, and a price that will be hard to beat. Good luck!

    Stirling Engines

    I bought my "Hot Air" engine in 1977 when I was teaching Math & Science to 5th graders. (made by Solar Engines in Arizona) It still fascinates my 6 and 8 year old granddaughters. @Mallette The issue is low efficiency. In the 60% range I believe. I haven't read on this in years, not certain if there are other problems with the technology.
  12. The panel that needs replaced is small and easily accessed. If these were close to Georgia, I would be on my way to get them. Worst part of the repair is stripping the paint.
  13. @Maximus89 I also thought the price was very high. But in the end, I have exactly what I wanted, and the price was only $40 more than my budget. Jerry
  14. @Maximus89 Grill cloth came from 123Stitch.com I purchased the largest piece to cover my Cornwall's.($77.39)
  15. I purchased the Cornwall badges from him a couple of months ago. Maybe not perfect, only have seen pictures of original's to compare, so they look great on my refurbished Cornwall's. Klipsch used these badges on their Limited Edition Cornwall III's (The Irish Linen grill cloth looks good too too!)
