Thought that I'd update this thread with the fact that I have now traded in my Cornwall 3's to 4's. This happened about 3 months ago and the 4's are settling in nicely. They are definitely more detailed and accurate than the 3's and the stereo imaging is a bit sharper. I have also added a bigger sub to the system, a BK P12-300 DF. I'm still experimenting with the settings on the sub as it breaks in but happy so far. At the moment I'm not using the spikes that were supplied with the sub, it just sits on the carpet.

Next on the agenda is to try a pair of Townshend seismic speaker isolation platforms under the Cornwall 4's. The speakers currently sit on a carpeted plus underlay concrete floor so it will be very interesting to see what difference ' if any ' these platforms make to the sound signature.
Here's a picture of the 4's with grills off but with my old sub.

It's never a good idea to arrange a demo at a hi-fi dealer. Occasionally you might end up with more than you bargained for. I fell for the charms of a pair of Klipsch Forte IVs last year during such a visit. I told the salesperson it would be a while before I could allocate funds for a pair. My Q Acoustics C500s were doing a brilliant job and I was more than happy with them. The memory of listening to the Fortes never quite left me and a glance through the internet a month ago threw up a pair of ex-demo Forte IVs. I knew I may not get a better chance of owning a pair, especially at the price. Klipsch had raised their prices late last year. A few phone calls later and they were on the way to a new listening room. Needless to say I was as captivated by them now as I was when I listened to them initially. I find it very hard to stop listening once I start, lots of late nights!

I was looking for speakers last year and visited the Daventry show.
The ones that grabbed my attention were Cornwalls and DeVore O96s.

A quick visit to Fanthorpes and...

Cracking speakers, good choice, but I would say that wouldn't I 😁
I'm convinced the sound improves considerably over the first 6 months or so, ymmv. Enjoy
