  1. Both pair of the LaScalas are sold... Thanks again to the forum members for your questions and comments.
  2. Both pair of the LaScalas are sold... Thanks to the forum members for your questions and comments.
  3. Thanks Mark I appreciate it... I had my first surgery 12 years ago and have been through 2 separate fusions. 5 surgeries total, with 3 in the last 18 months. I'm not much better from a pain standpoint, but I no longer have any metal in my body. Tony
  4. I had 3 pair of LaScalas last year... Sold a pair when I sold and moved out of my house last April. I have 2 pair left which are for sale here. I only have one pair of cane grilles which go with the 2002 LaScalas. Not looking to sell the grilles separately at this point. But I may do that later (depending on offers) if there's no interest in keeping them with the speakers.
  5. Hello all... haven't been on in a long while. Hate to do it but I need to sell my LaScalas. Medical/living expenses and not having any health insurance have forced my hand. I've got 2 pair available. Here is the link to: My other pair... 1999 Birch Raw This pair are 2002 Birch Lacquered with the AL-4 crossover and black grilles. This version is also Bi-amp/Bi-wire capable and has a separate input panel on the back that can accept banana plugs. There is also a factory pair of cane grilles that were purchased by the original owner. All original drivers and no changes to the crossovers. I do have the original boxes for this pair. Serial Numbers: LSBL3 - 02510001 & 0002 I purchased these from the original owner here in the DFW area and have had them about 10 years. This is a VERY nice pair in close to, if not mint condtion. I'd say they are easily 9/9.5 with sharp corners. The top, sides and all external surfaces are silky smooth and have no nicks or visible scratches. They are a very nice blond color and have always been kept out of the sun. The installed black grilles are in excellent condition and the Klipsch badges are flat and intact. The other pair of factory cane grilles are still brand new and have never been installed. These were in my 5 channel, all LaScala system, that I had in my home. And they were used as the front left/right channels in that system. Unfortunately they've been sitting in the back of my apartment for the last year collecting "LaScala dust". I'm asking $1600, but if someone was interested in buying both pair, I'd be willing to knock 8-10% or so off the price. Cash is king, but I do have a PayPal account (plus fees) if that would be better for you. These are local pickup only. And I'm in a 2nd story apartment right now, so you'd need a two wheeler and some help to get them down the stairs. Though with notice I can probably get my brother over here to help move them. I'm located in Mansfield, Texas... zip 76063. If you have any questions, please let me know... Thanks, Tony
  6. Hello all... haven't been on in a long while. Hate to do it but I need to sell my LaScalas. Medical/living expenses and not having any health insurance have forced my hand. I've got 2 pair available. Here is the link to: My other pair... 2002 Birch Lacquered This pair are 1999 Birch Raw with the AL-3 crossover and brown grilles. All original drivers and no changes to the crossovers. No boxes. Serial Numbers: LSBR18 - 99440001 & 0002 According to the previous owner (I'm the 3rd owner), the mid-horn's had some type of silver foil backed damping applied to them (visible in the photos). And they may have had a very light coat of clear lacquer applied to them (they don't feel raw, but they're not as silky smooth as my other factory lacquered pair). Whether they were lacquered or not, they have a nice reddish/blond patina. But they have not gotten any darker since I bought them. General condition I'd say is an 8/8.5 with good corners. But there are a few nicks/scratches here and there. The grilles are in excellent condition and the Klipsch badges are flat and intact. I've had them quite awhile and they were bought here in the DFW area. This pair was in my 5 channel, all LaScala system, that I had in my home. They were rotated in/out of the center channel position every year or so. But they've been sitting in the back of my apartment for the last year collecting "LaScala dust". I'm asking $1100, but if someone was interested in buying both pair, I'd be willing to knock 8-10% or so off the price.

  10. I could go for that as well... That would be more of a KLF update though. Call it a KLF-50!
  11. I'm always up late... I already have more Klipsch than I have room for anyway. BUT, if they were to bring out a Chorus III, I wouldn't be able to resist.
  12. Not being in Texas has nothing to do with it. The way it's run and operated has everything to do with it. Just look at some of the inductees... Being in Cleveland doesn't help it though. Klipsch would get a much better return on their investment by putting their money just about anywhere else.
  13. Drones are regulated by the FAA and whether they are being used for recreational or commercial purposes, they should be registered with the FAA... That makes them an "aircraft" and shooting one down or assaulting the drone operator is against the law and a federal crime. And as long as they are following the airspace rules, safety guidelines and within line of site, it would appear that flying over your house or property is perfectly legal. https://www.faa.gov/uas/ https://www.faa.gov/uas/faqs/ https://www.faa.gov/uas/where_to_fly/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/johngoglia/2016/04/13/faa-confirms-shooting-drone-federal-crime-so-when-will-us-prosecute/#4c103f82a25a https://www.justice.gov/usam/criminal-resource-manual-2-aircraft-sabotage-18-usc-32
  14. None of the "Shop Now" buttons are working yet... Wonder how much longer?
  15. The'd be better off spending that money elsewhere... The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame is a joke as far as I'm concerned.
