#1683076 What direction is Klipsch going in?

Posted by Amy on 15 January 2014 - 02:39 PM

We are getting ready to launch an complete new line of R.... oh, crap, I'm probably not supposed to say anything yet.

Rest your fears. This is the year of copper. We're not going anywhere. Either is the Heritage line.




#1707741 Unhappy theater is finished

Posted by Youthman on 20 March 2014 - 10:32 AM

There is a lot of excitement that comes with building a HT. I like you spent countless hours in the forums, looking up reviews, searching Cragslist. Lots of excitement and anticipation during my build. I've often shared on the forum that my journey was just as fun as the end result.

I love my HT but honestly, I don't use it but maybe a few times a month. My son uses it the most in our family. Wake Junkie thinks I'm crazy that I don't spend more time in there but I just stay too busy with my side business to break away to enjoy it very often.

I don't see anything wrong with you no longer enjoying the HT as much as you once did. People change hobbies all the time. My Dad used to be an avid fisherman, now he hunts. Maybe that's the same thing that is happening?

Unfortunately, everything in this life provides limited happiness. Remember as a kid that toy you were dying to have? Several years later, you can't even find the toy. The excitement is gone, and we move onto something else. That's just the nature of this world. That's why "stuff" will never really satisfy and provide lasting happiness. Relationships are what really matter. Friends, family, & faith are what mean the most to me. Those things never get old. ;) Even if you don't enjoy the HT as much as you did, enjoy the time you are able to spend with those friends and family that come over and enjoy your HT.

#1707291 Thanks to all...

Posted by Robert B. on 19 March 2014 - 01:26 PM

..for the warm welcome, encouragement, advise and critism....lol...... I am ashamed to admit that at 56 years of age not only is this the first pair of Klipsch I have owned, but the first time I've listened to any, even though I've been aware of their exixtence and reputation since 1979. If there is a silver lining here, is that at my age, I've actually gotten excited about sometihng!

#1711245 Picked up a little something today........

Posted by Tasdom on 29 March 2014 - 09:45 PM

Found some excellent condition Belle's (4) on CL locally. Original owner purchased new in 82-83, all original. My first listening experience with these in his garage. He powered them for me with a vintage Pioneer receiver and they sound fantastic. Looking forward to bringing these back so spec for an even greater experience......sorry for the crappy iPhone pics :) Running these now in 2 channel from the Oppo and wow, incredible sound.

#1710157 Love my Klipsch speakers

Posted by Khornukopia on 26 March 2014 - 11:50 PM

Hello Klipsch fans,

I have been to hundreds of symphony orchestra performances, off-Broadway musical theater shows and decades of rock concerts. At the end of the day, it is always a pleasure to get home and listen to my Klipsch speakers.

I would like to join your Klipsch Forum. You folks are a very friendly, interesting and intellectually generous group of people.

Here is a picture of one of my classic Rosewood Klipschorns.

Thanks

#1706647 The best looking La Scala ever?

Posted by Max2 on 17 March 2014 - 09:26 PM

I think these are. The cane and blonde color just looks good to me. I have kept these pics for a few years and have yet to see another pair like them. Maybe they are owned by a forum member now? I believe they were on Ebay at one time.

Feel free to post other LS's that stand out among the crowd

This guy scared me half to death yesterday, although I'm sure I did the same for him (her?). Canon 60D, f5.6, ISO 800 (nearly 6 pm, overcast), 300mm focal length, exp 1/80 sec.

#1688951 Scala's are home, WOW :)

Posted by Matt 1970 on 02 February 2014 - 11:12 AM

Several years ago, I picked up a pair of RF-7's thinking I will never part with. Well, in short, goodbye my ol' friends. Hello! La Scala!!!

After getting them settled in (had to paint the wall behind cause they clashed with the yellow). Replaced a diaphragm on one HF horn (I'll do the other next week). It was time for a test drive!

Three words, OMG!!! :) -the delicacy of sound from these is amazing. The warmth is attractive and the look, well, look at them! Gorgeous!

I was a little worried they would be too much. Those worries went quickly out the door with the twist of the throttle. Oh dear Lord, I had no idea what I have been missing. Now to smooth over the neighbors. I think some fresh baked cookies are in order :)

#1713293 AA battery powered Klipschorns

Posted by BEC on 04 April 2014 - 06:53 PM

I have heard that Paul Klipsch, in the early days of his company, used to travel around with a Klipschorn for demonstrations and he powered it with a small portable radio. He would probably have been happy to have something as good as an Ipod and dock.




#1707509 Anyone heard the Tangent T-5000(s)???

Posted by beeker on 19 March 2014 - 08:29 PM

These look really close to the KLF line. Could it be that these were what led to building the KLF series?

That is very a interesting thought. Timeline would lead this way. Bottom 12 is passive in the 500/5000. I will say klfs(at least 20&30)are better but with some upgrades the tangents hold their own. I eq'd mine for a while and tried a good powered 12 driven off speaker wire in 2ch format and the 5000's imo do not need a powered sub. You are onto it. The klf was directly after the tangent thousands were out of production. Seems to me you just brought to mind whats up. Interesting




#1704283 A little "Free" Surfing Security

Posted by minermark on 11 March 2014 - 11:23 PM

This is the Beta and it rocks, don't think your every mouse click is not being tracked and sold ?

Now you can see on every web page, who, and how many are stealing your every move, and selling it.

On facebook just a min ago all I did was sign on, 144 tracking hits, oh and by the way, it blocks every dam one of them!

Quite a little perk for free!

Takes aprox two min to install. you will sleep a little better knowing your web surfing is NOT being Marketed.
