    Academy anyone?

    OK, it's official...I have an ACADEMY!!! Thanks to Dave, who responded to my whining, I have a beautiful black Academy perched atop my 58-incher. Got it yesterday, and stayed up way too late enjoying it. The difference is amazing...it is seamless with my Chorus II's and Forte II's... Moral of the story: If you've been thinking of giving up the search for an Academy - DON'T! Well worth it! Second Moral of the story: Klipsch forumites are the best!
  2. definitely svs subs...they're next on my list... I've heard good things about the hk...me myself, I like Yamas...

    Say it ain't so!!!! Luchenback BIDDING on an Academy???? wait...let me get up off the floor... oh, and Mike...regarding your question about Fortes and Chorus'...if I had to choose one, the Chorus would win, hands down. Yeah, the Fortes have the bigger bass, but the whole package with the Chorus is unbelievable! Close your eyes and you're there... and that's why the perfect setup (for me - IMHO) is Chorus II mains and Forte II rears...tremendous soundstage and no sacrifice in bass.

    Believe me, when, not if, but WHEN I get my Academy, I'll definitely let you know if it lives up to it's reputation. Although I'm pretty sure it will. See, last year I was hellbent on using a Forte II as a center, and I actually passed on an Academy...but my best bud got it, and is using it with his setup, which is identical to mine. When I realized I didn't have the room to use a Forte, I of course begged him for his. Can you believe he told me no?! So it's back to the search!!! and yeah, I saw the newest on eBay...looks a bit beat up... Bev
  9. jhawk... my system is alot like yours... Chorus II's in front, Forte II's in back, Optimus Pro LX5 Linaeum's for FX... all I'm missing is the Academy!!!! I was soooo certain I was going to use another Forte II as a center, that I actually passed on an Academy once...I am sooooo kicking myself for that now!
  10. jhawk... my system is alot like yours... Chorus II's in front, Forte II's in back, Optimus Pro LX5 Linaeum's for FX
  11. jhawk... my system is alot like yours... Chorus II's in front, Forte II's in back, Optimus Pro LX5 Linaeum's for FX
  12. jhawk...thanks for the sentiment! I'm sooooo envious, I can't wait to have an Academy of my own. Chuck, I only hope I don't have to wait as long as you did! Ok y'all...here's your mission: find me an Academy!!!! Bev

    Academy anyone?

    Well...if it's any consolation, I think a fellow forum Klipschite got the eBay academy...and I'm glad he got a good deal, however, I couldn't resist emailing the seller and telling him I would've paid more than $300!! I don't know if it would be worth turning him in...jeez, don't want sour grapes... K-foot, looks like our search continues! Luchenbach...where are you? we still want yours!!!! Bev
  14. Congrats Chuck... looks like you outbid & outdealed me on this one! well, and I'm glad that a fellow forum user and true Klipsch aficianado got it... now, can you help me find one???? Bev
