  1. I never threw my CD collection away and I'm glad. Redicovering it with a nice CEC transport and tube DAC. Have TIDAL Hi-Fi and also buying very specific records that are not available otherwise. My new Technics SL1210 GR player is totally silent.
  2. I use a Reisong A10 with Tungsol EL34s and Voshkod preamp tubes with my Cornwall IIIs. Sounds really beautiful with deep bass. The bass is really dependent on the position of the speakers in relation to the corners and wall behind the speakers.
  3. With horn speakers that's the journey always towards bigger and bigger... 😄
  4. Sounds fantastic with single ended tube amps.
  5. If you have the space, get the Cornwalls.
  6. I suppose I was trying to say design your room around Cornwalls. With Khorns, design your house around them...LOL Like the lady working at Klipsch who bought a house specifically to fit Khorns.
  7. He has too much stuff! LOL. However, I like his selection of turntables. With Klipschorns, you need to build your house around it. :-D
  8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=br9Pk8siBrM&fbclid=IwAR07VWm_-oBWrPPTLjwuY8J-b8_wGRbF_XDDvx1_xpwr7eNdJw_ovCdRC14 Very cool setup of Klipschorns.
  9. Sound definitely changes. I have also noticed this multiple times with guitar speakers too. https://www.klipsch.ca/blog/how-to-break-in-a-speaker https://www.klipsch.ca/blog/how-and-why-to-break-in-your-new-speakers
  10. LPs will only be for a very specialized collection of older jazz and Indian classical music and I'm starting from zero. I was not considering direct drive until very recently but after reading about these new Technics it just seems far more logical and plug and play compared to turntables with free standing motors and fishing line thread. ;-) Garrard idlers interest me but they are now too expensive and time consuming to restore.
  11. I'm using a 6 watt amp with my Cornwall IIIs but I feel I could do better on the bass at around 18 -25 watts with a parallel SET or push pull but I'm sticking with SET amps for the moment. However, La Scalas are more efficient and 6-8 watt SET should be fine.
  12. I found it started to sound good on the bass well past 100 hours with my new Cornwall IIIs. After 300 hours, it seems to have stabilized. I played a lot of tracks with strong bass but a lot of different types of music. I did not blast the speakers so it took more time.
  13. Sure. Any Cornwall you like...:-D The basic concept is great.
  14. Cornwall looks like a gentle giant. However, there are a lot of expensive ugly and mean looking speakers out there. :-D
  15. With my 6 watt SET, I had to put the Cornwall IIIs close to the walls and corners to get bass. Good balanced bass but not slamming bass. However, I'm not willing to give up on SET amps. I have them on dollies about 3" off the floor to avoid any floor interaction. I use Audio Sensibility speaker cables and a PL-PLUS DMC Furman power conditioner.
