  1. And you mean the last lascala? There is quite a difference between the current version and the one from the 90s I think.
  2. Agree on that. Nothing wrong with this video (although I don't fully agree on some points, but that's fine) And no one is saying there is a problem with his opinion of the CW4. My reaction was to a group of youtubers who are making reviews. A number of things I find striking and remarkable and raise some questions in my mind, which makes me a bit skeptical about the sincerity of the reviewers.
  3. I don't know. I personally find it striking how many you tubers "suddenly" give the Heritage speakers a review and how remarkably many find these speakers the best they have heard. So good in fact, that most keep this speaker as a main speaker. Is this a coincidence? Are they genuine reviews?... Or is this a very smart move by Klipsch. I don't know, but I find some reviews contradictory, which makes me a bit skeptical about the sincerity of the reviewers.
  4. Nice video, I just can't agree with his comparison of the CW4 with the Forte 4 With a listening demo at the hi-fi shop I was able to compare these speakers next to each other and I found the difference between these two speakers quite big.
  5. When I had the CW3 together with the Dynaco ST70 I found the basses to sound absolutely boomy at times. When I first heard the CW4 at the hi-fi store during a demo, I was disappointed in the CW4. A very fat dominant bass, which is why I thought the Forte 4 sounded better than the CW4. More punch in the low end and it seemed more balanced. A second demo of the CW4 at another hi-fi shop gave me a completely different experience. The sound sounded a bit less lively, but the basses were fine. Now that the CW 4 is at my house with the Melody MDA2, they sound different again. The low end is balanced (perhaps still a bit too thin), the music is snappy and dynamic, but I would like a little more punch in the low end. This is my experience with the CW where I do believe that the CW can sound very boomy
  6. Indeed this is a very nice amplifier This review only makes a mistake, it is not a Push Pull but a PSET amp. Unfortunately, I don't know the McIntosh. My experience with various brands and types is quite limited (yet) But I share your opinion that an amplifier that amplifies the basses will not be a good match with the CW. I've also heard the CW4 and the CW3 sound like boomy speakers. And I don't like that at all.
  7. A Tube amp (Melody MDA2-2A3 tubes) and the Cambridge Cxn-v2 with Tidal
  8. I totally agree with what you're saying here. It's about the right combination of gear and your personal preference, everyone will choose a different speaker as a favorite. Exactly for this reason I started my reaction with "funny".. Approximately the same setups, different experiences
  9. OK, because the funny thing is that my experience is just the opposite. I've traded in my Lascalas for the Cornwall 4, and the Lascalas have never impressed me to the same extent as the CW4. Although I have to say that I had the lascala in the garage for 12 years and so it was also 12 years ago that I last heard them play πŸ˜‰
  10. Just curious, What version of Cornwalls do you own?
  11. For some reason the lascala never really impressed me that much. It may well be that this was because I had not optimally tuned my audio equipment
  12. Agree on that. But what would you advise outside of the Heritage 4 line?
  13. 🀣🀣🀣... OK, I didn't expect this reason
  14. Chorus 1 above the Chorus 2?? Can you explain this perhaps? If money is not an issue then go for a Heritage 4 speaker. The bigger the speaker the better, although the lascala can be not your cup of thea because of the bass. If you prefer a more affordable speaker, give Chorus (1 or 2) a try. Since you're talking about bass, I think the Chorus 2 is the better choice for you. Basing my suggestion on: I have owned the RF3, RF3 II, lascala, heresy 2,chorus 1,CW3 Have heared at a demo the Forte 4,Heresy 4 Owning the CW4 atm.
  15. Just curious, have you ever heard the Dynaco ST70? And if so, how do the amplifiers sound compared to each other?
  16. But also for metal?.. I mean, that's a bit more extreme.
  17. Thank you all for your input (nice to hear you again @EpicKlipschFan) That's clear.. No tube amp for my brother, better go for an SS amp. πŸ‘πŸ»
  18. Thanks for the comments. Perhaps I should ask the question a little more clearly. I think his room is 5.5m x 6 m(His room is divided into two parts and this is the size of his audio room) He is listening to metal for 50%..pop and electrical instruments 30%..focal,acoustic, jazz 20% When he listened at my home to my set to some acoustic and jazz (tube amp with 2A3 tubes+CW4) he was really impressed with the sound. But when we listened to some metal on my set it was clear that this was not the most ideal combination. Because he thought the tube sound sounded very nice, his preference is for a tube amp. But that is why it is perhaps better to first ask the question, is metal and a tube amp a good combination at all? If this combination is by definition not ok then it is immediately clear that It has to be a SS amp.
  19. OK... +2 for a SS amp πŸ‘πŸ» I still find it difficult to understand why a lot of Wattage is so important with a speaker with an efficiency of 101 DB /W. First of all, why is so many watt needed? And secondly, if that is the reason why you recommend an SS amp then I would think that a PP tubeamp with KT88 tubes is also sufficient. These tube amps do reach the 100w. Do you agree?
  20. On request, I have made my own post for this question. My brother bought my Chorus 1 speakers. He would like to buy a good matching amplifier. As music he plays a lot of rock, pop, electric instruments, metal.. But also (to a lesser extent) folk, acoustic, some jazz.. Now he may also want to take over my Dynaco ST70 (El34), but I wonder if this amplifier is the best choice for him. A tube amp appeals to him, but perhaps an SS amp is the better choice given his music taste. So basically my first question is, given the music my brother likes to play., Do you recommend an SS amp or a tube amp. And question two is,if he is going to buy a tube amplifier, is my Dynaco ST70 a good choice or he better should buy another type of amplifier with, for example, the kt88 tube. I'd love to hear your opinion.
  21. Perhaps I can ask my question here as the Chorus was the replacement for the Cornwall. My brother bought my Chorus 1 speakers. He would like to buy a good matching amplifier. As music he plays a lot of rock, pop, electric instruments, metal.. But also (to a lesser extent) folk, acoustic, some jazz.. Now he may also want to take over my Dynaco ST70 (El34), but I wonder if this amplifier is the best choice for him. A tube amp appeals to him, but perhaps an SS amp is the better choice given his music taste. But if he is going to buy a tube amplifier, is my Dynaco ST70 a good choice or he better should buy another type of amplifier with, for example, the kt88 tube. I'd love to hear your opinion.
  22. This is exactly the speaker I am using for the Melody MDA2 πŸ˜‰..the CW4.. In the beginning I found the sound a little too shrill. But now that the tubes have more break in time the amplifier sounds really fantastic. I have little experience with other amplifiers, but I find the build quality and appearance very good.
  23. And thank you!! .. This topic drove me crazy and now I have an appointment next Sunday with someone to buy the Dynaco ST35 from him.... And this is no joke πŸ˜„, I read the post... Immediately looked at Marktplaats (sort of Ebay).. There just happened to be 1 for sale that (again, no joke) was offered for sale just 2 hours ago. I made an offer, and now I can pick it up next Sunday. Sooooooo.... Thank you so much for driving me crazyπŸ˜‰
