That is a true bummer as I am no longer able to collect Klipsch speakers in my new life, like I have in the past. I have a set of KLF-20s, a Audiosource AMP300, and a denon reciever, that is it.
Over the past several years I have watching Audio stores close, and corporations selling out, so I am not too surprised about hearing this. I dont think that Klipsch would sell every patten to Audiovox, so they will have to compensate the new possible lines of Klipsch if they even keep the name going.
My new gal complains about the KLF-20s and how big they are, its a shame that when I pass on, I am thinking they are going to go to good will. To her, they are just a set of big speakers, no one has any idea about the history, nor the quality of these products.
Everyone is into their I-pods and headphones, no one cares about a true Audiophile system anymore, and that may never come back.
If Klipsch does sell, or it may be in the works, it may be a wise idea for those who can, to start collecting now before the prices on E-bay, or ECT may actually double. No one is going to want to buy a set of Klipsch speakers made by Audiovox. Goodbye Khorns I see on the way for sure.
I am not happy hearing about this news, I have listened to Klipsch since 1989, and have been registered on the forum for over 10 years, and I have had a lot of fun purchasing and hearing the different lines of speakers, as well as modifying a set of K-horns, and restoring the pair of Type Ds I once had, into Type C.
All we can do I recon, is watch all good things come to pass, and never be replaced, and to keep enjoying what was once made that made a difference.
