  1. Both items sold. Big thank you to Bonzo. Could not have been easier to work with.
  2. Both items now sold. Big thanks to Bonzo. Transaction smoother than butter. Nad 160/270 Preamp / Amp combination. Smooth and powerful. I’ve used the pair for 3 years to drive Klipsch fote’s. They were used sparingly and never abused..It would be hard to find a cleaner pair. Asking $475 plus shipping for both. Will separate. This is my first time selling here but my feedback on Audiogon (wdrazek) and Ebay (wayne--o) is perfect. Thanks for looking.
  3. If there are no tears I think you are good to go, unless the cosmetics bother you.
  4. He wants $525 for the Heresy's. As I mentioned, they are k22-k53-k77. I thought the woofer was changed to k24 before the mid changed to k53 from what I've read around here. A pair of metal stands similar in height to the risers and a beat up pair of old woofers are included. The cabinet is stained medium oak and looks OK but kinda scratchy. All in all I was interested but the distance is like 400 miles and nicer looking H1 and H2's are available closer for less. But amazingly a great number of the available pairs are the 1.5's. More of them than 1's or 2's and they were only made for a short time.
  5. I'm guessing that the consecutive SN's are about matching veneers, no?
  6. Tell me more, Budman. Why only K55V's and why only consecutive SN's? This is a major move for me from forte's to Heresy's and I want to get it right.
  7. Thanks for all the replies.Great information. Why is it that the "1.5" does not get a lot of love here? I am thinking that the difference between it and the others is small but these seem to come up all the time and generally are not as well liked as the others. The deal is contingent on a long drive and a trade for my NAD separates which I am very fond of. I'd really like to know if I'd be making a mistake not holding off for either 1's or 2's.
  8. I'm just confused a little confused it says HBR. I thought that 1985 was the start of the H2. Anyhow, how different do these models sound? I am downsizing from forte's which I adore because the large living room is about to become a much smaller living room soon. And fortunately I do have a trusty Sunfire sub for that missing bass. Those forte's with Crites caps and ti tweeter diaphragms will be up on the block soon, btw.
  9. Thanks, Budman. That part I knew. Kind of a shame they're stained like a medium walnut color. Just heard they have k22, k53k, k77 and an E2 crossover. That makes them 1.5 I think. Just a fluke they have an 85 serial number. Next question: how different do these sound from the 1 and 11 really?
  10. Hi, I may be trading for a pair of Heresy's on CL. However, I want to know exactly what these things are. The S/N's, while not consecutive, both begin with 8551 indicating a 1985 build date. That should make them Heresy 2's. However, the tags clearly state "HBR", not "HBR2." Any ideas on these mystery speakers? Wayne
  11. First time selling here, and will post pics in the next 24 hours. I've owned the rears for about 3 years and the fronts for about 1 year. I previously owned a set of RVX 42's and traded them for Gallo Micro ti's but was ultimately unsatisfied with them and went back to the RVX's. Lesson learned. Anyway, these are great for HT and pretty decent for music, but no match for my forte's. And yes you can definitely crank them if you need to do that. I am the second owner of all five speakers. Here are the specs: Set of 3 Klipsch RVX 42 LCR speakers. Klipsch reference line, retail $500 each. Dual 4” cerametallic woofers, one 1” titanium dome driver with round tractix horn. Extruded aluminium cabinet, side firing bass ports. 24” x 5.75” x 4.5”. 92-20khz +/-3db. 94 db sensitivity. 75 watts continuous power handing, 300 watts peak. 14lbs each. Pair of RSX5 rear surround speakers. Klipsch reference line, retail $500 each. One 5.25” cerametallic woofer, one 1” titanium dome compression driver. Extruded aluminium cabinet, rear firing bass port. 12.5” x 6.5” x 9”. 87-20khz +/-3db. 93 db sensitivity. 75 watts continuous power handing, 300 watts peak. 7 lbs each. All in very good condition, used with Pioneer Elite and Marantz AVR’s and never overdriven in a smoke free home. $600 or best offer for all, or will consider separating. Paypal preferred. Note: This is my first time putting items up here, but my feedback on the Audiogon system before they switched was perfect and my ebay rating is under wayne--o which is also perfect.
  12. +1. What he said. Go Heritage or Reference rather than the BB specials. The others are made to a higher standard. Your 40WPC is plenty for just about any Klipsch. Just don't overload a small room with giant speakers.
  13. That is a great quote from AE. As for the magazine and its writings, I grew beyond it around 15 years ago and never looked back. Everything they review is great, the more expensive the better, and the newer and more expensive the better yet. Got off their bus a while ago.
  14. Yeah, I figured that caps would be necessary. There is one authorized HK shop nearby but when I spoke to them they didn't sound dialed into the world of vintage. It takes a special passion, I think. My 35 year old Marantz 2226B still sounds pretty good but I know more is lurking under the surface.
  15. His current wait is 10 months. OUCH!! Must be in demand.
