partymark Posted March 31, 2022 Share Posted March 31, 2022 I am about to take the plunge and get a set of Cornwall IV's here in Canada. We recently had an MSRP increase to $9400+ tax. I found a dealer who is still giving the old price and a bit of a discount so I decided now is the time to buy. I do have experience with Cornwall's as I have a "1.5" model from 1983 I currently use. I have powered it using only vintage receivers a Kenwood KR-6600 and a Yamaha CR-800. I would like to get a modern amp to match my modern speakers. Ideally I am looking for an integrated, probably solid state in the $2000-3000 CAD price range. All the amps I have seen in reviews that state they are great with the Cornwall's are quite pricey, stuff like the Pass Labs INT-25 come up a lot, but at $7600 USD (probably $10k Canadian) this is just out of my range. I primarily listen to vinyl and some CD (Maybe 85/15 split) so having a good built in phono pre amp is a good feature I'd like to look at. I am no opposed to separates, but I would love to know if there is a good powerful clean sounding all in 1 with a phono preamp in it for around $2-3K Canadian? I can maybe stretch it a bit further if need be. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
