Klipsch Cornwall III


Can anyone point me to any dealer in the country who has Cornwall III, LaScala II, in the store for audition? All I can find are custom AV guys who simply spec stuff. Looking to put together a fun/loud system when I feel like straying from my Harbeth M40.1.

Thanks

I think Acoustic Sounds carries them
You might find the Cornwall knocking the Harbeth off the throne.

Klipsch does a poor job of placing their better speakers in the hands of dealers. Hope you find a place to audition them. For what it's worth, I have CW III's in my 2 channel system and love them. Probably would like the La Scala midrange better, but they just don't dig deep enough and I don't like the idea of having to add a sub (or pay for one). Cheers
I can believe that. Harbeth's are some of the most overrated and overpriced speakers out there. Followed closely by the Spendor SP100s.
Go the thrift shop route. You can also find these speakers in antique shops as well.
You wouldn't find any Cornwall 3's in thrift shops, that's the current production model, if they are indeed still making them - I believe the company was sold a few years back and is concentrating more on their home theater stuff now. You might see some Cornwall 1's or 2's, though. Fantastic speakers, I use a pair of Cornwall 2's myself.
I am not sure if they have their Klipsch Heritage sound room completed but give W.C. at Panacea Engineering a call and pick his brain. W.C. is a top shelf guy and great deal with.

Nice to hear from a troll. You just felt like puking out a snide remark because you're so happy with your life. Typical of the Audiogon elite.

If you find a pair in a thrift shop, you would do well to buy them posthaste. The pair I recently purchased displaced a pair of highly regarded 8K loudspeakers.

You could always go the Cornscala route. I am picking up a pair of these in a week. I have high hopes that they will best my CW IIs.

Shakey,

Do you have to assemble your Cornscala speakers or can they be purchased totally finished and ready to go? I've been looking at these and don't have a clear idea of what's available. It has been a while since I've talked to the Bob.

Thanks.
Bob will finish them for you and he has those prices on his website. I am buying my pair used, but Bob built them for the original owner.

Regardless, what I said about Harbeth 40.1s is true. They're not worth the asking price at all. But, they're certainly not the only underperforming and overpriced speaker out there...
this may not be helpful to you, but for others please let them know that Petery-Hedden Co. stocks Cornwall III and Heresy III speakers along with some Jolida tube amplifiers. those sound great together. In the Louisville, Ky. area.
