We had a great time in Hope!  Thanks so much to everyone who worked so hard to make this happen.   It was great to see folks we hadn't seen in years, and to also make some new friends.  I decided it was time I got my own profile here since I have loved Klipsch for almost 50 years!  The very first time I heard the Khorns I was at my boyfriends house  and Stairway to Heaven was playing on an LP.  His Dad was an avid music lover and had a top of the line system.  I was totally blown away!  I wound up marrying that boyfriend (Rigma) and we have been collecting Klipsch from the very beginning.  I've never really understood the term WAF as it sure as heck does not apply to me!  I look forward to being a part of the group.

welcome aboard a pleasure to have you join us. My first Klipsch experience was when I was about 16 years old I think, a friends older brother not long out of university got his first real job as a professional engineer and he bought a system with a pair of Belle's. I do not recall the gear in the system but the loudspeakers were to me the most beautiful that I had ever seen or heard. My very first WOW experience in audio was a good one thanks to PWK. Not so long after that I bought a pair of well used but good condition Altec A7-800. I liked the Altec's but they lacked the beauty of the Belle which  seemed compact in comparison. Those Altec were my last horns (I had them for about a year in my bedroom at home, my mom was not impressed) for a very long time before I found my way back to Klipsch. I would like to hear the new Cornwall lV but would rather that it was a two way with a large format driver.

We heard the new Cornwall IV’s in Roy’s lab and they have me wanting them REAL BAD!

You might change your mind once you hear the Cornwall IV. When I listened to it at Chief Boneheads Class I did not expect how significant the audible improvements are on so many levels as well as the new Heresy IV are as well.

 

I honestly am amazed at how much Roy has reduced the box coloration that all previous models had when compared to fully horn loaded models like the La Scalas,  Belles or Klipschorns.

 

Whether a loudspeaker is 2-way or 3-way doesn’t really matter in the end but instead what the total loudspeaker brings to sound reproduction and IMHO the new Cornwall IV is going to kick-*** at twice it’s price point... 😄
