    Rob,

    That's awesome. I enjoyed a pair of Cornwall III's and I'm sure the Forte III are wonderful. I'm looking forward to your decision and more comparisons.

    Re: Behold the Klipsch Forte III speakers

    What Kevvy doesn't do is actually play them in his vid, i think the finish is what architectural people refer to as 'pickled' oak. Whoever is in charge of Klipsch nowadays 'gets it' they managed to strike a chord with the retro crowd yet they brought their speaker range up to date and are 'modern sounding' for lack of a better descriptor. I def like what I heard/saw.

    Add a sweet solid state or good tube amp and I’m sure it’s going to be awesome.

    I haven’t heard the Diablo but think it could be great as well.

    Re: Behold the Klipsch Forte III speakers

    Just thought I would give a bit of an update. Almost a year in and Iím still enamored with these speakers. Iíve had several quite different amplifiers on them and they have each given an unfailingly musical result. Iím playing with 7Ē stands for them now which is fun. There is definitely some improvement in the mids with them raised and a bit of a trade off in the bass at the moment, but again they are just fun and engaging to listen to regardless. Their shortcomings just donít seem to hinder my enjoyment of them. Just thought Iíd share! Thanks!

    For the price, what shortcomings? you're being modest These are great speakers anywhere near 5K+ for anyone that doubts that, schlepp your amp and LPs/USB stick to a Klipsch dealer for a listen. I'm thinking of reasons NOT to buy them. For the person with a Shindo amp or if you're looking at Harbeth and own a punny <30 WPC tube amp, you should hear Forte IIIs. Even if your amp is SS and makes 500 WPC you should still hear them.
