My new Forte III has just arrive!!!  :)


After 2 years of listening to my Forte III day in day out. And with recent addition of my KI396 Pro-series, finally i can write a short review on my feel about the Forte III.

The first day i received my Forte III. During the unboxing, my first impression on the Forte III Matt Black Special Edition...Wow this is gorgeous. The quality, the finishing are in tip top condition. The grill are made from Silver Luster grille cloth.
I am a HT Lover and has never consider myself as a Audiophile guy. So you can expect that this beautiful Forte III on my 5.1 HT setup...

From Music to Concert to movie, this beautiful Forte III do a wonderful job. Bring everything to live... listen to it is a pleasure... you can sit down and listen for hours and you will never get tired... 8) 8) 8). The detail, the kick drum, the bass, the smoothness, the involvement with the music and concert make you want to listen to it everyday.  ;) ;) ;)

I have also swap the speaker for a week for a short comparison with the KI-396 Pro-series. The KI-396 is a 2 ways design which come with a 3" compression driver with a much bigger horn as compare to the Forte III.
The KI-396 sound more neutral as compare to the Forte III. The Forte III is a 3 ways design that make it sound more detail on the high.
KI-396 is very good in Stereo listening. The sound stage and imaging are way much better as compare to the Forte III... one more thing to add is the KI-396 mid bass slam is super... ;D ;D ;D
For the Forte III it has a better match with my current 5.1 setup due to the Driver and Horn size in term of sound matching.
As for the KI-396 i will need to upgrade the rest of my other speakers to match my KI-Pro-series. For current i will use it for Stereo listening.  ;D ;D ;D
Both speaker are equally sound good to me and i will definitely keep both of these speaker.. 8) 8) 8)

The Volti Rival speakers makes me explore my collection of music all over again. The speaker is very transparent and picks up noises from noisy equipment easily.

I end up upgrading my tube and digital gear further
I think I'm the only owner in Singapore, as far as I know.

The new Klipsch La Scala AL5 is really tempting.

They will not bring in the Klipschorn. Klipschorn are probably order to made.

Klipsch, a VOXX International Company, announced that its Cornwall IV speakers, from its legendary Heritage series, have received modern acoustic and cosmetic updates that further enhance the replication of the live music performance. Visitors to the RMAF 2019 show will have the chance to hear the improved three-way design, now featuring an updated compression driver and substantial electro-acoustic improvements to the mid and high frequency dispersion. The Klipsch Cornwall IV speakers continue to be designed and handcrafted in the USA.

In 1946 Paul W. Klipsch, inventor, acoustics pioneer and maverick, founded Klipsch Audio with the sole purpose of bringing the power, detail and emotion of the live music experience into his living room, through the use of highly efficient speaker designs, handcrafted cabinetry and a thirst for real engineering breakthroughs. The Klipsch Cornwall model was initially introduced in 1959. Now in its fourth iteration, the three-way design uses horn-loaded compression drivers for the midrange and treble and a direct-radiating 15-inch woofer for low frequencies to deliver the full-range bass response of the Klipschorn with the sensitivity and output approaching the fully horn-loaded models.

New features in the refreshed Cornwall IV speakers include the use of an all new K-702 midrange compression mated to a modified proprietary Tractrix horn with patented Klipsch Mumps technology for even mid frequencies and consistent sound throughout the listening area. A new high-fidelity, steep slope network, was also integrated to improve sound reproduction with best in class efficiency and power handling. New ports with Tractrix flares deliver the most efficient, fastest air transfer in their class, resulting in reduced port noise and clean, more powerful, punchy bass.

Further refinements in the new Klipsch Cornwall IV speakers include a newly designed wide dispersion high frequency phase plug to ensure the last octave matches the coverage pattern of the midrange and high frequency horns. The premium aluminum input panels accommodate large, high-quality speaker cables, while strong binding posts allow for bi-wiring or bi-amping, while an updated passive network now features premium grade AudioQuest internal wiring.

The Klipsch Cornwall IV is available in three real-wood veneer finishes, with satin black ash, American walnut and natural cherry choices to complement modern furnishings. As with the entire Klipsch Heritage series, the Cornwall IV speakers are designed and handcrafted in the USA. Each speaker is grain-matched using wood veneer panels from the same timber, resulting in a speaker pair that is virtually indistinguishable from the other.

Klipsch will debut the new speakers at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Suite # 7154, September 5-8, 2019 in Denver, CO. The Klipsch Cornwall IV (US MSRP is $2,999 each) speakers will be available through Certified Heritage Dealers
