an old classic that is ocassional maligned
but when it comesdown to it, this scottish table
is one of the most musical out there; it has great
rhythm but changes with the wind, humidity,
moon phase..etc still, one of my favorite tables

77 Klipsch Cornwall w/ Type B Crossover - AlNiCo Mid/Tweet

a great classic that is a World Beater! this box would make some SERIOUS waves if released today! the beasts are huge. horn loaded in midrange and
tweeter with Alnico magnets. bass supplied by 15" woofer reflex loaded. listen, if you told me I would be listening to Klipsch speakers in 2002, I would have dug you a grave with a telephone shovel... actually, I can't say enough positives about this amazing speaker that has transformed my SET system in one fell swoop, sending my ProAc Minitowers to second system status in a matter of minutes. the dynamics and bloom here are simply amazing. really, these speakers put so many audiophile offerings to shame as the soundfield is huge as the music envelopes you. I have never seen a bigger soundfield.

the only problem is they require quality amplification, with lower power tubes being by far the number one candidate. klipsch vintage horns do not take too well to grainy solid state amplification where they can drill a hole in center of skull with piercing glare. some still run these monsters with 70s solid state at hundred's of watts! christ, they only need a few watts to produce an inhome concert! the damn things sound heavenly with SET power but with the vintage eico hf-81, just do wonders... makes you realize that we have not come very far in 40 years; indeed, at times, i believe we have gone backwards....
