Excellent all around speaker

Mr Jazz, Amazon
14 October 2014
  • Summary: Excellent all around speaker, very efficient (5/5) and decently proficient (4.5/5) but they can be just a little muddy on some of the more challenging and complex passages. Very little wattage is needed to hear these fine speakers roar. Remember because these speakers are so sensitive they pick up every nuance so they require very clean power in. Do not buy these speakers if you have sub par audio equipment.( WARNING !!!

Awesome!!!

  • Summary: I've had these speakers for a couple of months now and as someone who's been an audiophile for over 50 years, I can tell you that they are truly awesome. With all components (pre-amp, amp, EQ, CD & tape players) remaining the same, I'm hearing a so much higher level of quality and enjoying notes that previoujsly went unheard. The research that I put into selecting new speakers has paid terrific dividends. They won't disappoint. .
  • Pros: Fantastic sound and hard to beat at this price point for a solid return on an investment. It's hard to imagine that higher priced speakers could deliver that much more quality than these. And, the folks at Crutchfield continue to be the very best to deal with, bar none.
  • Cons: None.

Klispch Cornwall III

GaryW, Crutchfield
6 September 2014
  • Summary: If your room have corners for the Klispchorn then good. These magnificent Cornwall speakers can be placed anywhere in a large room. They are large heavy solid speakers that won't diminish the quality ambiance of any room...with your choice of finishes . "30 yrs" ago I bought matched Hi Gloss matched Rosewood Cornwalls . The saying you get what you pay for applies to the top of the line Klispch speakers. Any audiophile will agree..
  • Pros: Clarity , accuracy, no distortion and a firm solid boom of a base drum sounds exactly like the bass drum with no distortion. At very low volume all the detail comes through alive and clear. Speakers do not cause ear fatigue. If you want to crank these speakers hard they can be heard a block away, without distortion. Years ago the Cornwall was used commercially , price and size became a problem. Cornwall has more base than the La Scaly that professionals use today.
  • Cons: None. . . These are large speakers a pair of these aren't made for a small. Room must be moderately large.

Great Speakers

Amazon Customer "Tie Tried", Amazon
5 April 2014
  • Summary: Once I realized that my Kilpsch Chorus speakers were over 25 years, I decided to purchase a pair of Cornwalls. My expectations of buyer’s remorse did not happen as these speakers sound so good and brings out a new dimension to both music and television shows.

Perfect complement for tube amplifier

Tutor Turtle, Amazon
12 January 2014
  • Summary: Iv'e owned the Cornwal III's a little over five years and driven them with a McIntosh MA6600 solid state (200 w/ch) and Luxman MB3045 mono-block tube amps (50 w/ch) The tubes at one quarter the power, sounded better all around. The McIntosh was retained as the preamp. That settled, These speakers are articulate "from a whisper to a scream", (to quote Elvis Costello) it is easy to place the instruments and voices within the soundstage.

Klipsch Cornwall III review

Far Horizon, Amazon
11 June 2013
  • Summary: KLIPSCH CORNWALL III This is a three-way, floor-standing, horn-loaded (midrange & tweeter only) speaker from the Klipsch company. The 15" woofer is in a ported enclosure. Bass: One strength of the Klipsch Cornwall III (henceforth CW) is the ability to clearly define bass lines in complicated music - When the bass gets busy, the CWs let you hear the differences between the percussion, lower-brass, and acoustic bass sections of an orchestra.
