  1. Still having this nice center channel sitting unused.
  2. The reference speaker will stick out like a sore thumb it does not even come close to matching the Heritage line. Another Chorus or an Academy is the correct direction to go in also a Heresy II would fit the bill.
  3. Nothing special other than condition and cartons. The woofers are chincy in these old models and not capable of todays power output.
  4. Why not just stick with the sound that you are used to and get a new NAD integrated amplifier. Here are a couple that are currently available. There are a number of vintage integrated amplifiers out there that will sound great with Heresy III's Luxman and Yamaha come to mind. That said most of those are very old and would likely need refurbing so new would be the best choice. I am nearby if you need help fellow Vermonter. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_745C368/NAD-C-368.html https://www.crutchfield.com/p_745C388/NAD-C-388.html
  5. Just emailed my brother in law as he will be interested. Not sure if he has access to the forum though he has an account but seldom logs in. We'll be in touch.
  6. The correct timbre matched center(RC-62II) to your mains will always be the best choice although a third RF-62II would be the ideal choice.
  7. Your overdriving it apparently. Lower the level for the center and if you have a built in equalizer for that channel drop those particular frequencies some. That is only an entry level speakers system so perhaps lower your expectations or get a more robust center speaker.
  8. Me, a trio of LaScala's prior to that Klipschorn's and a LaScala center. I find the La Scala bass while not as low much more accurate than the Klipschorn. I have tried all the center's Academy, KLF-C7, KV-4, LaScala top section, etc.
  9. I don't think so! That is way off and unrealistic where is your benchmarking with prices like that eBay? There is no way birch raw cabinets are going to bring that. Hell there are Brazilian Rosewood versions selling for that price and that I can understand. I have owned four pairs of Klipschorn's in various finishes and have never paid over $1500 for them but with today's inflation I would still only push that to $2000.
  10. Those are 1980 Klipschorn's (Cornerhorns) with the B-type cabinet (collar between the LF/HF sections) finished in Birch Raw. Value depends on overall cabinet condition, original driver and crossovers, and last of all location. Real world fair pricing is between $1500 - $2500.
  11. Don't use eBay for price benchmarking as it is not realistic. You found a one off auction on the HIPs' as they typically sell in the $500 - $750 range dependent on overall condition and completeness. I just sold two pair that I had $700 for the older ones with no trim and $650 for the battle dressed version. Perhaps lowering your expectations some will help get them sold.
  12. Well let's see. The super rare DBX BXI of which I was running two of at one point. The Nakamichi PA-7II, Yahama MX-1000U, Onkyo M508 Grand Integra also come to mind.
  13. These are in my backyard I will look into them as I would love to replace my La Scala mains with this pair. Thanks for the alert.
  14. With the Jensen P15LL version of the K-33 I would place them in the early 60's.
  15. Up for sale an excellent to mint condition an Onkyo M-5010 2 channel amplifier. Great as a stand alone amp or as an add on to a receiver for an additional zone or additional surround channels. Shipping costs will be actual to your location. In perfect working order. Some specifications are: (75 W/Channel (8 Ohms, 1 kHz, 0.08% THD, 2 Channels Driven, FTC) Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry to Reduce Distortion Delivers Multi-Zone Audio with Selected Onkyo A/V Receivers. Damping Factor : 60 (Front, 1 kHz, 8 Ohms) Daisy-Chain with Additional M-5010s for Bi-Amping or Multi-Zone Audio Impedance Selector Switch (4-8 Ohms and 8-16 Ohms).Signal-to-Noise Ratio:110 dB (Line, IHF-A) High-Current, Low-Impedance Drive Flat, High-Rigidity, 1/16" (1.6 mm) Anti-Resonant Chassis 12 V Trigger Input and Output with Audio Switch Input Level Adjustment on Rear Panel Auto Standby On/Off Switch
  16. Tthe PL 1000 is most likely similar to the early RG Dynamics unit.
  17. I have owned and used them all up to the DBX 14/10 14-Band 2/3 Octave Computer Equalizer Analyzer and the rare DBX 5BX-DS 5-Band Computer Controlled Dynamic Controller. I feel the DBX 3BX-DS is the smoothest expander of them all. The 3BX-III is more edgy and geared more towards tape and vinyl where the 3BX-DS is ideal for digital sources. The best set up is to dedicate a 3BX-DS to each channel combining the inputs and outputs on each unit with "Y" adapters since the DBX units use mono triggered VCA's this works very well. A cheaper alternative and equally nice sounding is the Pioneer EX-9000 Dynamic Expander. Pioneer actually got it right as they use stereo triggered VCA's and the three bands are independently adjustable. I have manuals and service manuals in digital form for almost the entire line up. Unfortunately the Series Two unit is the least desired model.
  18. Still available if anyone is interested.
  19. How about a rarer pair of professional ported Heresy's. More efficient and higher power handling and built like a tank.
  20. Good luck with your sale fellow Vermonter. Those would also work very nicely with a pair of La Scala pro top sections I would imagine. Not sure how the efficiencies would line up but it would be fun to try.
  21. I have an excellent condition black satin KV-3 with the original carton that I am not using that I would offer for $150 plus split shipping if you have any interest in replacing the KV-1. Doubtful that replacement woofers are available. Maybe eBay or have them reconed if at all possible.
  22. If you have any interest in a more efficient pair (~102db @ 1W) and don't mind the industrial look I would offer one pair of my Heresy Industrial Ported (HIP)'s for $700 and they are far more potent than a standard Heresy. They were also more expensive to purchase than the standard Heresy as well. These would be turn key no updates or modifications needed. The aluminum trim is removable revealing perfectly sharp edges and corners. Plug and Play. Take a nice drive up to Vermont.
  23. The AK-2 is not a desired network. Klipsch corrected it with the AK-3 which is far more desirable. Remember that these networks are in two sections. One mounted in the top hat and the other half is mounted inside the woofer hatch door.
  24. I came across what looks to be a mint pair of Forte II's while browsing Craigslist. While I believe the asking price to be high the overall condition may warrant it. I am not affiliated with the seller in any way. https://vermont.craigslist.org/ele/d/underhill-center-klipsch-speakers/7506354592.html
