Cornwall IV vs. Volti Rival, Razz; Razz v. 1, 2, 3 -- what changed?
@norust "he wanted me to reach out to him on his email- evidently not allowed.  This was the last I heard of him..... " That's probably it. Same here, received a message asking to engage and share more. Maybe too enthusiastic for this forum -or... 
Cornwall IV vs. Volti Rival, Razz; Razz v. 1, 2, 3 -- what changed?
Looks like all of @silverfoxvtx1800 posts are gone, removed from this thread, and a few others too perhaps.  What's going on with forum posts lately. Is that self-removed or forum moderators, and if so maybe less effort is the way going forward if... 
Cornwall IV vs. Volti Rival, Razz; Razz v. 1, 2, 3 -- what changed?
@silverfoxvtx1800 thanks for the history and all that you’ve worked through prior. I’m not looking for speakers for myself, yet helping a few friends looking at ideas from time to time. I have followed Gary/BorderPatrol and Greg/Volti some from th... 
Cornwall IV vs. Volti Rival, Razz; Razz v. 1, 2, 3 -- what changed?
@silverfoxvtx1800 what is it about the Volti Audio speakers that you enjoy more [when compared with the same amplifier], Is it the bass, midrange, top-end, or maybe how its being presented differently in a more desirable way? Or, perhaps how the m... 
Aftermarket fuse to tame a bright system?
[to @gavin1977] As a quick test and self reminder of what just happened, try re-inserting a pure copper interconnect head of stream, back at the source, ahead of the downstream silver cables. You can move the cable up/down the stack and find a bal... 
Upgrade Interconnects/Cables or…?
@kennythekey "I’m sure I can get him to suggest what to use for the whole package and maybe this might be a loom of cables." I’d recommend trying one component cable set at a time -vs- jumping over to a full loom all at once or you really won’t... 
Cornwall IV vs. Volti Rival, Razz; Razz v. 1, 2, 3 -- what changed?
@plinko I think the newest Klipsch speakers (Forte, Cornwall, Klipschorn) are far better than their past versions. Good to know. If you don’t mind the ask - have you actually compared the different versions first hand? A buddy of mine has owne... 
Interconnects priority
source first  
Do your ears deceive you?
@panzrwagn "Maybe you could define of what a sufficient system is made." @coralking "One where you can hear the differences between cables."   Interesting question and points. A musician family buddy, also a very capable audiophile and I trad... 
What speaker cable for Martin Logan motion series (AMT) tweeter.
@bobrock it seems like you’ve already got a good handle on trying different cables and helpful examples so far getting started. I got baited by a good friend 30+ years ago who had a massive supply, and later again with a few dealer friends who let... 
Cardas vs Cardas vs Shunyata interconnects
@classicrockfan "I write posts on this forum not for elon musk but for audio enthusiasts who live on a budget more than 90% of us." How do you write about something you've never tested before?  Again, it's all just a bunch of babble until you ... 
What speaker cable for Martin Logan motion series (AMT) tweeter.
@bobrock +1 to what @soix said and what about the Mogami speaker cables do you not like now? What are you looking for more or less of out of the sound? btw, for reference I also run ML Motion Series in my Home Theater and use silver-over-copper c... 
Trying to decide between Quad S2 and Ascend Sierra 2 EX
channeling @hilde45 he has the larger Ascend and Fritz both, fwiw.  
Cardas vs Cardas vs Shunyata interconnects
To @classicrockfan - as they say, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. The guy was a telco engineer specializing in transmitting audio over cable. He employées family and locals and they do a fantastic job. Assembly Plant tou... 
Trying to decide between Quad S2 and Ascend Sierra 2 EX
If you are going to stay with your Rotel integrated, you could get by with the Quad, and its on sale at half the price of the Ascend right now at Music Direct. Both are 8ohms and sensitivity 87/88 db, so if you’re thinking of stepping up on ampli...
