LOL you guys stop encouraging me.

 

One speaker has an intermitant tweeter. It was probably known by the P.O. but thats ok. 

 

Bob Crites has replacement tweeters but the diaphragms are long discontinued. And to think I had a shelf of those babies (K77 Diaphrams) back in the 80's 

 

:((

 

Only a slight bump in the road.

 

Hooked up the Dynaco ST70 to it today. Wow... sounds great. IM happy enough for now. Cant go dumping the kids savings into tweeks and upgrades.

 

Cheers

Thanks all.

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.

Hi Chris,

Congrats for your CW...i myself also got a CWI few months back & I changed the crossover (got it from Bob Crites).

So much in love with the sound.

Cheers,

Jimmy

Cornwalls have been running amazing. 

Hooked up to a Dynaco St70

 

Just waiting on funds for tweeter and covers from Bob Crites.

Then some decent interconnects and speaker wire and I'm DONE!!

 

This is not gonna be a money pit.

 

Thanks for all the support and comments

Noooooo

 

No discussion. Its just what I'm doing. Im not a specification free. Ill just buy something decent and be done with it.

 

All good... No further comment on wire is needed. 

 

We will keep it Klipsch only.

 

cheers

After a resounding failure trying to buy a pair of K-Horns earlier this year it looks like I am on my way for a pair of Cornwall I speakers.

Im a bit more happy this time because although the K-Horns are the eclipse of vintage Klipsch they were a bit pricey and I was already reconfiguring my living space to accomodate two corners.

Ill work with the Cornwalls and don't foresee any problems. At the ready is a KSW-300 Sub.

Price is 650 CDN and I am waiting on pics of serial number for final verification of age.

Hopefully in a few short days Ill be the new owner of some Cornwall's. Money and delivery in place.

Pics ... All comments are welcome.

As someone posted before, you won't need the sub...just my 2 cents...

I bumped this post because I wanted to update it with the original information.

 

 

Cornwall's are spectacular. Left them stock.

Klipsch KSW 300 Sub (fill only) not really needed at all.

Dynaco ST70 tube Amp

Bryston Preamp or Little Bear tube pre/headphone amp

Moon 100D Dac

Apple Mini source via SPDIF lossless 96hz is best i can get. (suggestions)

Monster interconnects

Monster 1000 speaker cables

 

 

 

Listening to the exact above system as I write this. Some Floyd :))

 

Thanks all who added their comments and pushed me to hang in there and buy them.
