Hello, I am a new member and this is my first post. I have the chance to get some Special Edition Cornwall III’s from a friend. He paid $2000 for them, but the veneer needs some work. The original owner had movers that did an awful job and some of the corners and edges are beat up. Other than that, the speakers look awesome and he has allowed me to bring them home to work on them and have a chance to listen. A few questions I have: -at that price, are they worth it if I can fix them up to look close to original? -what are good methods to fill in the veneer gashes and cracks? I plan to use clamps to push the bowed veneer back in and then wood glue/saw dust to fill in the gaps or match with colored wood putty. I’ve also heard Shellac sticks are an option but can be expensive if I buy the kit to match. I have ave three amp options to work with - Marantz 2230, Elekit TU-8200 (upgraded), and a Bob Latino VTA-120.
Good day all, I have a set Cornwall 1. I listen to these speaker at conversation level, or slightly higher 90 plus % of the time. what like is that they have great detail at low levels, very room filling sound, and still sound great off axis/in another room. I am soon to move. New room 12x24, with 8 ft ceilings. The speakers will be on 12x16 portion because of hallway opening breaking the wall up. 1 speaker will be close to corner, and other, only back wall. I have been kicking around the idea of selling my Cornwalls for either NEW Cornwall/ La scala/ Fortes, or used chorus ll. I have a pair of quartets, so I get an idea of the flavor of the rear passive speakers, however I have to crank them louder than I usually like, to get them to open up, but at louder levels I might enjoy them better than the Corwalls at the same level. I am wondering if the quartets (New) bigger siblings can play as well or better at lower levels as my Cornwalls, or would they be similar to quartets? Would the La Scalas need more room to breath even at my normal listening levels? I wonder if it would be worth the change since I listen mostly low to medium low levels with the occasional crank fest? Should I just upgrade the stock Cornwall's? If I do upgrade, who do you think would have the upgrades that would best fit my style of listening. I listen to all music except the screaming metal. I don't know the name of the genre. grateful for responses
