  1. I would really like to get a very nice pair of Chorus 2’s or Cornwall 1’s. I’ve got a nice set of original Zebrawood Forte’s, but I’m looking to add a pair of speakers that I can run a bit more power through (at times) without pushing the speakers past their limits. I’d rather purchase/trade from/with someone in this group, and I know from many comments on here that quite a few members have sets of these. I know that I’m not the only person on here expressing interest in obtaining Chorus 2’s or Cornwall 1’s, and cash hasn’t seemed to motivate much interest in owners offering to sell, so . . . I figured I would use a really nice McIntosh amp as additional bait. Have a minty vintage Mac752 amp, 75 watts per channelx2, checked out by one of the best vintage gear guys in Arkansas, sounds sweet, and was my daily user until a few months ago when I moved to a 2205 amp. Few 752 amps were made, so they don’t come up for sale very often (I think there is only one for sale in the entire country currently at Audioclassics for about $1k), it’s a very nice and reasonably unique piece of Mac gear. I’m willing to travel quite a ways (400 miles, more possibly) from Arkansas for the right deal. Wouldn’t be interested in black speakers or plain birch. BONUS points if you are willing to part with Chorus 2’s or Cornwall 1’s in Zebrawood to match my Fortes! Let me know if anyone is open to the Mac752 and/some cash in trade. Thanks.

  3. That makes no sense since his ad still states the asking price is $1,400.00, and, it mentions that he can show original invoice where he only paid $4,225,00.

  5. A mere 18 hours or so . . .each way.
  6. Bobby2xs, I posted another pair I saw for sale, in the Alerts section. Higher $ as they are being sold with matching subs.

  9. I think it depends on what matters most to you. -You want to flip them? Then pass. -You want a super nice looking speaker that also sounds great? Wait for a more mint looking pair to come up for sale (3-12 months). -Listen to them, and if you love the sound, and plan to keep them for years, buy them without a moments hesitation. Dickering/worrying over $200 from a bargain bin type price versus the $600 asking price is less than $20 bucks a month over a year. You’ll get that much enjoyment out of them in a year if you listen to much music, and additional years are just a bonus. Worst case, you sell them for $400-$600, and you take a small loss. Worth it? Probably, if you love the way they sound when you buy them. Life is short, pull the trigger if you love the sound.

  13. Just picked up these beautifully upgraded speakers. Great job, quality work. I’ll be running some music through them this evening to get them acclimated to their new home. Thanks Ken, top notch!

  15. Pictures and a rough location would be very helpful.

  17. Compressed pics don’t do them justice (the original owner took fantastic care of the speakers), but:
  18. Tried to post a pic or two, but it won’t allow (gets message I’m limited to 2MB). Ah well.
  19. I’m not using any equalization to boost the bass response, but appreciate the tip to check the rear passives. In regard to the Chorus ii, if a nice pair comes up for sale anywhere near Arkansas, I’m going to have some explaining to do, to my beautiful wife.
  20. Thanks for the replies. Looking over some of the other comment strings as well this evening, the JEM replacements look well regarded and a good route to take. They will likely be getting a phone call from me tomorrow. Hopefully, not too complicated to replace. Content? Not so sure . . . but one indication is that Chorus iis and older pairs of Cornwalls sure catch my attention every time I see some on the Alerts section!
  21. I was lucky enough to purchase a beautiful set of Forte 1’s in zebra wood about 8 months ago, and have enjoyed them almost daily ever since. I was told they are original, and since they appear to be an early set (round cup on back indicating 96db efficiency apparently would suggest an earlier set in the run), that would put them at about 25 years old. I must admit, I like my music (much) louder than most, at times, and when the speakers are really pushed, I sometimes hear a “pop” from one of them. I don’t believe it’s the amp clipping, as it’s a MC 2205. Wondering if this might be an indication the caps might need to be replaced, or if there is a way to test if the caps are on their way out. First post, I apologize if this has been covered already elsewhere.
