Yes this is my first post, & I have the audio bug bad. I have had this affliction ever since I heard a pair of Klipsch Horns in about 1963,but could never afford. Now some 40 years latter I can afford a pair of used Klipchs, or Axiom m80's. My listening area is abot 18x38 & I am currently runing (two channel only)Eosone 600's,pushed by Onkyo 8511 receiver, that I am reasonably satisfied with but cant help but think perhaps I have only begun to crack open the door to truly fine hi-fi. I have spent hours reading this forum, & fully understand that the only way to really know what I will like best is to do the side by side a-b test in my on home. But with the vast amount of experienced user's found on this board, I am hoping there might be a previous owner of Eosone who would share there thoughts on a comparison of Eosone 600, Axiom m80, & Klipsch Cornwall. Will I really hear a $1,000.00 differnce?
I won't be much help on the Eosone/Axiom comparison. But you might try dropping a private message to Craigsub
. He has the M80s, and I know he has owned Klipsch. I think they were the Cornwalls, but I'm not 100% sure of that.
Welcome to the forum.
I thought I remember Craig having Cornerhorns, of course I could be wrong.There was a fellow here a bit back that had some Klipsch Hershey's and went to some M60s.He has told me that there was a vast difference between the two.He perfered the M60s to the Klipsch.
Rick that thing looks like a Bose 901 sitting on top of the cookie sheet cabinet in our kitchen...slightly off color though.
Don't be giving Bose any ideas now....
tsk ... That "thing" is the loudspeaker that made audio history. That is a speaker which has been in constant production since 1947 - The original Klipschorn.
We had a pair of those, a pair of Belles and still have a pair of Cornwalls in our garage for summer "Rock Out" parties.
Great speakers, the Cornwalls - but very quirky.
Shame on you Rick, if you ever heard a set I do beleive you would be impressed.Back in the 80s I used to frequent a shop that carried these and would go in for listen as much as possible.I loved these speakers but couldn't afford them at the time.
Sorry fellas, I must have been doing other things 'back in the day' and missed this wonderful speaker that looks like a Bose 901 sitting on top of a cookie sheet cabinet in my kitchen. I'll refrain from now on.
