YAY got my Cornwalls Yay

 

FROM SELLER:

They are gone...I showed him the drivers were in perfect condition...we loaded in his truck...strapped.

 
I think you got a great deal... Enjoy !!   Pleasure doing business with you.
I built stands for them to specs I got on the net... You can remove them if you wish... very similar to Heresy stands.
 
Cheers, 
Claude

Yes the information I have read is that the old oil and paper caps from 20 years ago did their job well for years but a 'freshen' up does not hurt, keeping the values the same with some quality caps.

 

I don't believe its taking away from the Vintage Cornwall. In fact giving it a bit more life.

 

I don't have any real big plans for the Cornwalls possible Crites x-over upgrade and depending on the finish and how bad someone messed with it I may re-veneer. 

Again no big plans.

 

Initial plan is a small tube amp, some new capacitors and I'm done.

 

Again 

 

Thanks everyone.

YAH

 

They arrived no worse for wear after traveling 800km or so to me.

 

Finally hooked them up to a temporary source and they still sound amazing.

 

Dynaco tube will be here any day and final setup will happen soon. For now I have stollen a space in the kids play area. The only space available large enough to fit the speakers.

 

Thank you everyone for the comments and suggestions on the earlier posts.

Wood shed...

 

Got tired of looking at the insulated half wall so I just threw up some partial board... fastest cheapest way....

I hate drywall. Putty, wait, sand, putty, wait, sand, final putty, wait, sand, primer, wait, paint..... 

Partial board, screw.... done. :))
