Description

Allo Allo from Aotearoa New Zealand.  This is my happy place, where the glow of the tubes (and those various pesky LED component lights) bring a little ambience to night time music listening sessions.

I recently upgraded to the Klipsch Cornwall IV from the Forte III.  The PrimaLuna has been in the system for a while, with plenty of tube rolling.  Currently rocking Tung-Sol KT120s and 12AU7s.

The Wand New Zealand made turntable and arm arriving soon!

Very nice!  Given the size of the Cornwall’s, I would think it would be easy for them to overwhelm many listening rooms (certainly mine!) but they fit in your room beautifully.  Looks like a real relaxing atmosphere to enjoy music.  👍🏻

What a lovely space to relax in.  You've build a very good thing.  And documented it nicely with artful photography!

Thank you @earlflynn its an absolute pleasure to listen to.  Roy Delgado certainly worked some magic on the Cornwall speakers, they are truly beautiful.

@jond thank you, and yes it’s a New Zealand made table and arm.  I haven’t yet received it, I’ve just purchased.  So the table in the photos show my current Project.

I have listened to it extensively however, and it is a beautiful table that I can’t wait to experience - I’ll add photos when it arrives.

It is available internationally through a small dealer network listed on their website in case one is local to you and you ever wish to have a listen.  I highly recommend.

@dcpillai currently running Tung-Sol KT120s with some NOS JAN Philips 12AU7s.  I tube-roll between the 120s, some Gold Lion KT88s, Psvane EL34s and the original PL 34s.  Also have some Tung-Sol 12AU7s and some Telefunkens.  The 120s are stunning - better control and depth in the bass with more mid range magic than the 88s :D

A calming and beautiful room. A fellow PL user here :-) In relation to the tubes you are using (love the nighttime pics of the tubes BTW), are they aftermarket? KT88s / KT120s? In any event, welcome on board and enjoy the music!

Cornwall and PrimaLuna may be a perfect combo.
I have older Forte and Mystere (sister company) and it works well.
