  2. Joe Holland, who is featured in the Klipsch Tape is alive and kicking at 92. As a friend of Paul Klipsch, he recorded this tape under the supervision of P.W.K. Joe would fly around with Paul in Paul’s personal plane introducing new speakers to dealers. Joe would play music from the Klipsch Tape, then The Tape would be played demonstrating the hi-fi quality of the speakers. The sounds on tape sounded like the live drum Joe was playing. This man has incredible stories. I took pics and videos of him but can’t figure out how to add to this page. You may be wondering g how a lady in Hot Springs, AR (1.25 hours from Hope.) meet this world class drummer. He advertised his Klipsch speakers in the state newspaper!!! (Ninety-two year olds aren’t prolific with Craigslist, EBay, Pinterest, etc.) he lives in Little Rock, an hours drive. So, off I went. I picked up his KG1s Bookshelf speakers he has had since mid 99’s. But, I picked up a new friend and heard hours of stories about his music experiences. You can google his name and Klipsch Tape to read more about him.

    Haha, I'm livin' it because passion is an amazing thing. I wouldn't be guilty of calling myself an audiophile but I have a passion for music.

    It still makes absolutely no sense... that's not dismissive, it's just a fact. Your read on me is way off base, don't play poker. I'm in no way as impassioned as your misinterpretation suggests... even @jimjimbo read on me is so far off base it's not even funny. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Klipsch the Three with subwoofer

    I've been considering getting The Three as a portable solution. I spend a lot of time away from home for work, and having some audio better than my laptop speakers or the hotel TV. Seem like a good solution for that duty?

    That's a good number of LPs to straighten out it you haven't in years! Heck I wish I had half that much. Don't consider myself an expert at all, but I now what I like. If you do not have tubes at all in your system at least put them in line with your LPs! I'd bet you would be as tickled as I am with what I picked up last year. Except the prices that I just looked at are 25% higher for the little Pro-ject DS tuber I run. It made the analog the best part of my stereo when I hooked it up!

    Don't be sorry, live life like there is no tomorrow and buy a pair of 70th's.

    Marantz 8B Amp

    8b were probably one of the best amps designed by the great Sid smith, only the model 9 monoblocks were considered better. It wasn’t called the golden age of audio for nothing! Buy them and don’t look back, you might want to have them looked over by a competent tech first though...let us know how this turns out, warm regards, tony

    This made me laugh. Out loud.

    Because of the early hefty price tag on the 70ths, most were sitting idle. When mine finally made it, all had loads of bird shite and dust on the boxes. All on pallets. No digs or dents on the merchandise. Good thoughts for Schu and his ying-yang arrival. .

    SOLD: Klipsch KLF-20 Minneapolis Area

    Oh wow, you sold the 5.5's too...I had thoughts of pairing all 4 of those with my KLF-C7 for a decent little home theater setup, but I guess I'll have to keep looking. And by looking I mean for a new job where I get a day off

    I'll drink to that! Adorama are a band of bumbling idiots. The pain can only be contained by JD and laxatives. I can only have happy thoughts for Schu and his procurement of some very fine high end, limited edition audio speakers.

    You may want to sit back and spend a little more time reading the forum before diving in and going fisticuffs with established members. You're woefully unprepared after a mere 11 days of membership.

    Schu has a pair of of LSII's that were a good deal, but ended up being demolished by UPS. It was a stressful and frustrating time for him.. now he's paid considerably more to buy these special editions and get some unblemished LSII's in his house (which is all he wanted to begin with), so cut him some slack if he's a little extra paranoid this time around.

    SOLD: Klipsch KLF-20 Minneapolis Area

    These were a very nice pair, wish I could've sold them to you. Interestingly, I've had several items listed on CL for weeks with no inquiries, no sales, nothing. This week though I've already sold 5 items, including the KLF-20's and a pair of KG 5.5's!

    70th anniversary La Scala II

    No Pete, Schu is not calm. He's hyper defensive and worried about being screwed. He's not gonna be. You proved it. He appears to think everyone is out to get him. The deal is legit I believe. Cut him slack? Fugetaboutit. The beauty of the sound is in the ears of the beholder. If you love the sound, and you love the look, the fact that you got such a great deal should make you love them even more. Congrats
