@rsf507 You nailed it !  
Confused with size of speaker to get when placed along long wall in large room
As a listener you need to determine what sound and presentation characteristics are most important to you. If you stated them, I am sorry.....BTW, what series Cornwall ?. Only the series IV meet my criteria. I love my Lascala / sub combo.  
Cornwall IV's with Accuphase E-650? good match?
I am currently using a very robust designed rawsonte FW F4, and the sound quality I am experiencing through my Lascalas, is possibly the finest in a very long time. Let me add, prior I was going passive, but a preamp is necessary with the F4. Unli... 
Eliminated my preamp with amazing results
Currently, I am not using my Luminous unit, which I have raved about on these pages for years. Purchasing a very fine, robustly built rawsonte F4, has forced me to use a preamp in my system. Of the many preamps I own, I am enjoying, so very much, ... 
From NAMM 24. Manteo Mancuso
Anyone into fine guitar players, especially electric, should check him out. SRV is a favorite of mine, and has a style unlike most. Matteo,  seems to be able to play any genre of guitar music. We all have favorites, and I know I had backlash from ...

Good Speakers for Rock and Roll Under 15K
The reality I think, is that rock and roll goes hand in hand with loud. Anything can play loud, but so much music is compressed, as so many speakers. This is why I threw in that jazz piece as a demo for everyone to try. Playing Satch and Ozzy mean...

Play " Housed From Edward " from Trio Jeepy. Not rock. But crank this, and see what your system brings to the table. Being there are fan boys of all types, and those stating mine is bigger than yours..... I Love my Lascalas ! BTW, interesting that... 
Ribbon cable inside amplifiers
I had an AGI 511 preamp for years. It used a ribbon cable that went from the board to another board of the rca connectors. A popular upgrade for this was to remove the ribbon cable and use good quality shielded cable to each connector. A very larg... 
Preamp Recommendation for First Watt F4
I am using an Usher P307A with my rawsonte F4. Possibly the best amp/pre combo I ever had ( with Lascalas ). Enjoy ! MrD.  
Good Speakers for Rock and Roll Under 15K
Dynamics and transients are key characteristics in producing lifelike sound. I never heard an 86db speaker excel at these, no matter what amp / amps were used. Keep in mind, rock and roll recordings are generally very compressed, compared to class...
