FS: Bob Crites Cornscala Style C - SOLD

Recommended Posts

I'm selling my Bob Crites Style C Cornscala high efficiency speakers. These are Klipsch Cornwall + LaScala hybrids, combining the best qualities of each speaker. They are incredibly efficient, operating at 102dB sensitivity. They're perfect with SET amps or any tube amp offering 2 or more watts. They have selenium drivers, and were finished by the previous owner. I have rated them at a 7 because there's a ~1.5" sliver of wood that chipped off the bottom front of one speaker. I still have the piece and it can easily be glued back on, I just never got around to it.


 


SOLD


 


Negotiating down from the listed price will result in none of the 3 extras being included.


Speaker Details: http://www.critesspeakers.com/cornscala-style-c.html


 


Not much activity here, but I have the same username on Audiogon and USAudioMart with years of all-positive feedback.


 


Available for pickup only in zip code 87102.

These are the same Cornscalas I posted last week. They are a good deal if you are in either Pittsburgh or Albuquerque . I love mine.

 

Welcome to the Forum Maha, even if it is for a short time.

Welcome to the forum and to Albuquerque! I hope you sell these before you move here so I won't be tempted.

 

GLWS!

Beautiful speakers, once again too bad you are not in Michigan.

I admire the cinder block stands, my kind of guy. I did the same for some rather large solid state monoblocks.

But really, what self respecting audiophile would use Home Depot Lowes stands? And not spend at least what the value of the equipment that's sits on them is worth?! Oh, the shame of it! Good luck -

These are sold by now, right?

 

From the post it sounds like they are now on his moving truck on the way to NM.

Yup, they're still for sale! I had numerous people flake in PA before they went on the truck, so they'll be available to buy in Albuquerque as of Tuesday, May 17th!

And just why are you selling them?   I seem to have seen several people who sold them within weeks of acquisition?

There is no sound reason (no pun intended) why owners of the "C" would be selling them. I have had a pair for about two years and they are superior, in my opinion, to the Cornwalls, which I also own. I also own LaScalas and while the "Cs" are different, they are not inferrior

I'm selling them because:

1. I sold all the tube gear I had before I moved out here b/c I didn't want to deal with the generated heat now that I live in the desert.

2. To replace the tubed gear, I bought a NAD M12/M22 combo and a pair of GoldenEar Triton Ones. 

3. I really don't need two stereos in my house at this point. One will do just fine. I loved these speakers, I'm not offloading b/c they're inferior in any way. In fact, they actually do a number of things MUCH better than the 5k Triton Ones do (primarily low volume level enjoyment - I've never had a speaker touch these in that regard, including $8k Vienna Acoustic speakers).

 

The speakers are still available, and I'm dropping the price to $850 inclusive of the speaker cabling.

If only these were near Pa., I would "be all over these."

Sorry, couldn't resist.

This is a great deal though. I like mine a lot.
