I'm trying to decide upon what finish to get. They offer Cherry, Walnut and black. All are nice, and I'm sort of in between Cherry and black. The Cherry has a nice contrast to it, but black looks 'serious'.
I know there are more 'advanced' speakers available, but they all get superseded by the next best thing. One year it's the latest and greatest and the next, they end up on ebay so the next great thing can be bought. The Cornwalls are not like that. They generally remain constant for decades with relatively minor changes. The Cornwall III's have a new design motor board to relocate the 15 inch woofer more centrally. They are now MDF and not plywood. But they are impressive and just look like quality through and through.
I think this will be a great performing system. And at some point I will have to relocate it to a larger area. Anyway, by next week I should have the order in if all goes according to plan.
