  1. Here's the ASR review: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/review-and-measurements-of-neurochrome-modulus-286-amp.6443/ On reddit I saw the all-in price for a Modulus-86, which I assume would have measurements similar to the 286 would be only about $380 and a lot more fun than buying a used amp! https://neurochrome.com/collections/power-amplifiers/products/modulus-86 Still the question remains. How will this be on the Cornwall I's? I saw one or two heritage horn owners give it a thumbs up over on ASR. But, the best way to find out is to... BUILD 😁 Aaron
  2. So, I'm minding my own business obsessively researching amplifiers and I stumble across the Neurochrome Modulus kit amps. Wow. Totally microscopic distortion. A power amp that is kind of "not there at all"? Sounds like a great yin to the yang of my 300B based SET. Has anyone tried this amp on a Klipsch horn loaded speaker like my Cornwall I's? Would it be a bad idea? Seems like it could either be really good or really bad. Thanks! Aaron
  3. Thanks for the recommendations! I’ll take a look at all of them! TU-8600 is done and doing troubleshooting/burn in now. 9 watts can get pretty darn LOUD. Bass can be wobbly on my budget 300b tube. If I bi-amp, shouldn’t the crown be enough to manage the woofer?
  4. Hi. I'm about to complete a 10w 300b based tube kit amp. The Elekit TU-8600s. Of course I can't keep myself from thinking about getting a second amp to compliment it. I'm thinking that the Elekit will be may main amp for my normal low volume listening. I'm under the impression that for a fun/loud/party scenario with dance, rock, and electronica I should probably get a different amp and maybe make put an A-B switch in to choose an amp according to the mood. I'm guessing that SS might be the way to go. I need to keep it under $500. So, I'll consider anything. Used is fine. DIY would be great. An older AV amp maybe? I find my Yamaha Natural Sound HTR-3067 amp to be rather harsh with the Cornwall horns and I want to avoid that. Source audio is Spotify/Tidal via a Sonos connect. I may do an inexpensive DAC like the Topping E30. Thanks! Aaron
  5. Hi Joessportster. I demoed a Fezz Titania on my Cornwall I's. Besides my TubeCube7 it's the first tube amp I put on my Cornwalls. I'm a total noob, so I'm still developing opinions about things. The soundstage is massive. Effortless, clear, and detailed. No hiss or interference at all. BUT it didn't tame the harshness of the horns enough for me to buy it. The amp itself is a beast with an extremely high quality fit and finish for a not very expensive amp. I've got that one in the back of my mind and I may revisit it as I continue my amp search. It might work well on horns with an EQ.
  6. Another question: the spec sheet says: "the loudspeaker shall be Cornwall II" So, are they Cornwall II's? Aaron
  7. Thanks. I assume raw means just that. The customer has them finished as they wish. Correct?
  8. Thanks! Can you tell me what the CD-BR means? Is that Cornwall Decorator - Birch?
  9. Hi. I just got some Cornwalls! I'm very excited. I'm working on selecting an amp and I'd like to know more about the specs on my speakers. The Serial numbers are 15S389 and 15S390. Would these be Cornwall I speakers? It would be helpful if I could see some documentation on it, in particular I'd like to know the sensitivity. Is it 98db? I'm seeing several numbers on the forum. Pics attached. Thanks for your help with this! Aaron
  10. I ended up paying $1,000 for some Cornwalls in decent shape. Maybe 7.5/10. Some minor dings. A repaired woofer that didn't look exactly like the other. Everything seems to be working fine, however. I like them.
  11. Hi. I'm seeing prices higher than that on eBay. Where can I find Cornwalls listed for the prices that you mention? I'd be interested in these, but I'm in Maryland, so I guess that makes it tougher. Thanks! Aaron
