    Interesting, thank you for your pointers!  Absolutely, this stuff is fun...Fun...FUN.

    The system I heard had a B&C DCM50 (based on an old Western Electric driver) as the midrange and Fostex operating down to 4KHZ. You should try disconnecting the tweeter in the Klipsch and let the Fostex handle the entire frequency range. It's a far superior transducer to any of the Klipsch drivers. And for not a lot of cash, you can replace the midrange driver with a DCM50.

    Have fun, killer system you have there.

    I have kept the stock Cornwall internals.  I did a frequency sweep to find out in my room, the speaker's top end rolls off at 13kHz -3db.  So with a little help of a friend, setup a 2nd order crossover at 13kHz.  So the T500A mkii is playing with the Cornwall's tweeter.

    I've listened extensively to the Fostex T500A with Lamm equipment, I don't think there's a better tweeter. But, I'm obviously partial to Lamm equipment. 

    Did you deactivate the Klipsch tweeter?

    Speakers I've owned with the ML2:
    Living Voice OBX r2
    Wilson Audio Duette
    Klipsch Cornwall III with Fostex T500A mkII super tweeter

    What other speakers have you tried with the LAMM SET's? Also, is that a Fostex supertweeter?

    shadorne, Dave, thank you for the kind words.  I hear Symposium vibration control systems work very well to my ears.  

    If you look closely, the Cornwalls are on double-stacked Rollerballs which changes the speaker dramatically for the better.  Then I was able to get ride of surface resonances on the speaker cabinet by using a Svelt Shelf.

    This Cornwall experiment has turned out perfect for me.  102 db Sensitivity, near full range, perfect for my amps.

    Agree with shadorne, fantastic setup. James, you are obviously a man that values the importance of state-of-the-art vibration elimination. Very impressive.

    Obviously Klipsch Cornwalls driven by LAMM amps, a Chord DAC and what looks like a Thorens TT. Can't identify the cartridge....

    Fantastic setup! I would love be to hear your setup!

    Sure...what would you like to know?

    OK this looks like an interesting system. Please tell us more....or anything.
