Is this a decent price for Cornwalls?I am interested in upgrading my KG-4s to Cornwalls. How do the Cornwalls compare to the KG-4s? I've never had the opportunity to hear them.
BTW, I'm currently using a Sansui G-9000 with the KG-4s. I've got a G-22000 that I plan to use, once it's repaired.
The Cornwalls are on Ebay, in my neck of the woods.
Cornwalls are highly regaurded and are some of the best Klipsch speakers out there. I have a set of KG4 that I really like and would love to get a set of Cornwalls. I heard Cornwalls on a tube amp about 15 years ago and still remember how good they sounded. I do not think you will be dissappointed. Some day I hope to get a set.
I've owned a pair of Cornwall's for about 2 weeks now. Here is my review of them:
I don't see them leaving the ManCave any time soon.
Price isn't bad considering you can pick them up. They are nice speakers with a huge following.
Value questions go here, in Dollars and Sense, even if they're about forum-specific gear.
I just recently paid roughly that price for a pair of vintage Cornwalls with no shipping involved. Mine included new caps from Bob Crites and were consecutive serial numbers. As for the sound of the Cornwalls
I'd be worried about the recone...not that I know it to be a bad thing, it would just concern me if for nothing other than cosmetic reasons. $750 seems to be about the going price for them stock, at least I've seen some on CL for that.
The Cornwall is one of the best Klipsches ever. With warm electronics, they sing. A friend had a pair for a long time, driven by Aragon amp/pre and a TOTL Yammmy CDP. It was a beautiful sound on everything he played. But as I said, I think warm electronics (or at least completely neutral) are called for.
