Yes...... Cornwall IV, Cheviot/Turnbury (a stretch to Kensington?) and 0/93 are 'in the mix'. Maybe Canton 8K, but they can't hug the front wall like the others.

merkinman - did you have the opportunity to audition any other Tannoy models?
I haven't, but have been curious myself. The Cheviots are great though and it appears you get the bigger driver for your money with Legacy series. Much of the costs of the GR series are attributed to the cabinet.

One of the biggest problems in our 'sport' (hunting down the 'right' gear) these days is actually being able to audition something that "reads good". With the lack of B&M stores I'm finding it difficult to find the Cornwall IV or any Tannoy to listen to. With their size, speaker shopping is considerably more difficult than most all the rest of our gear.
