  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. With the Jensen P15LL version of the K-33 I would place them in the early 60's.
  5. 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
  6. Tthe PL 1000 is most likely similar to the early RG Dynamics unit.
  7. 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.
  8. Still available if anyone is interested.
  9. How about a rarer pair of professional ported Heresy's. More efficient and higher power handling and built like a tank.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. Way too high for the overall condition of the speakers. Those grills are not removable as they look like verticals and it is quite a job to replace that fabric since it is stapled to the front motorboard. Top of the mark would be about $800.
  16. I just kept my original Klipsch ProMedia 2.1's and replaced the satellites with a pair of ADS L200E's. What a difference! These were the best of th ebest when it came to mini speakers and they are even just a tad smaller than the Klipsch satellite. They sold for about $350/pr new and can be had for $100 or less online used. You will not be disappointed at all.
  17. Heresy HIP's are still available for pickup. I will offer a $100 price reduction for forum members making them $650
  18. I came across this auction in my searches it is a very early model H the precursor to the H700 and eventually the Heresy. It has all three drivers in it. I am sure it could be cleaned up I have not seen one this old for auction before. Would make a nice collectors item for sure. It has the University tweeter in it. I would jump on it but I am already trying to sell the speakers that I already have. It would make a nice center channel speaker conversation piece for sure. https://www.ebay.com/itm/255546396618?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160811114145%26meid%3D9b5ee9e804e648ea99d1165e57db7ac6%26pid%3D100667%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D363848927488%26itm%3D255546396618%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2334524%26brand%3DKlipsch&_trksid=p2334524.c100667.m2042
  19. I was the first to try Popbumpers Academy network and it literally transformed it. I had a lengthy post back them that I titled "An Academy Tale" the stock network is an obvious compromise. The detail and clarity really increased with his network installed keep in mind is did not come cheap but it is worth it. I know which one I would choose between the stock network and the K-Stack.
  20. Here is the schematic for the Academy crossover network. You also have to take into consideration that many, many movie soundtracks are just mixed horribly there are some that I struggle to hear the dialogue on and I have a La Scala center with the best components and network. Updating the network components will make a difference if you use high quality parts not the mediocre crap from JEM or Crites. Here is a comparison between Popbumpers K-Stack and the stock network for comparison. Guess which one sounds better.
  21. I have a pair of Heresy Industrial HIP's I do not have the means to box and ship these but would be willing to drop them off to a pack and ship place for a buyer.
  22. Not a chance. I had an all Klipschorn HT for awhile now that was overkill. Slowly started downgrading to Belle's, then La Scala's now La Scala's Cornwall's and Heresy HIP's. No such thing as too much. It will sound phenomenal.
  23. This is not true regardless of open or closed backs the Klipschorn still needs a solid corner with ~ 4ft on either side of it to perform to listed specifications. That will never change and is listed right in the documentation. Don't believe still ask Trey Cannon and he will confirm it for you.
  24. They have the steel stamped frame K-42 woofers, the K-55M midranges with the 8 hole K-700 horn, and the K-77M tweeter and the HIE networks stock. I would also take some a/d/s L-980, L-880, L400 or L300 series speakers as partial trade.
