  1. I'm sure I've said this before but those are gorgeous. I also see a pCAT there in the bottom right corner! Very nice as well!
  2. This is a shame to hear. I've only been to one ZZ Top concert, that was back in the mid-eighties. I think that concert contributed to my tinnitus. ­čść
  3. Whoops, this was supposed to go in the Alerts section. Moderators: please move. @dtel
  4. Looks like a great deal given the current market. https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/ele/d/rowlett-klipsch-forte-stereo-speakers/7343612427.html

  6. @MalletteI'm very saddened and shocked to hear this news. It's been almost twenty years ago, but Dave invited me and a few other forum members to his home to listen to his Klipschorns powered by tube amplification (a type of ST-70 if I remember correctly), which I really wanted to hear. I recall he had them set-up in his bedroom as that was the room that had the best corners. I think that was in 2002. I only met him that one time but had communicated with him in other instances and here on the forum. He was likeable and clearly a good guy from my viewpoint. My prayers, thoughts, and condolences go out to his family and friends.

    Dead Deal

    Great price!!! @condensedflesh95
  8. Post your photos here, to include photos of the serial number tags so we can determine what you have and when they were made. This is a good place to sell them. If you want a wider audience, I suggest U.S. Audio Mart or Canuck Audio Mart in the event you are in Canada.
  9. Great price, even if they are just the bottoms.
  10. As noted above, the Belle has a shorter horn. One other difference of significance is that due to the nature of the structure of each cabinet, the Belle should resonate slightly less at higher volumes. This is due to the side panels of the Belle bass horn having a smaller (un-braced) area than the La Scala. Regardless, both speakers are fantastic and there are going to be much, much more similarities than differences. Although I've never heard them, the La Scala IIs are likely an improvement over both -- La Scala-sized mid horn, Belle-type looks, and much thicker panels to reduce cabinet resonances even further.
  11. As long as Klipsch continues working to improve the existing models, there's no reason to go back.
  12. FYI: Discussion on K-510 "clones."
  13. Do my eyes deceive me, or are those a bunch of K-402 horns??? And are there also K-510 horns on that pallet and in the background (left side of photo)?? More photos:
  14. Ran across this set if you are still looking: https://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/ele/d/plano-onkyo-integra-set/7303081754.html
  15. This seems like a pretty good price on what should be a very nice sounding 2A3 SET amp. Those with Klipschorns, Belles, La Scalas, and even Cornwalls should consider these. https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649727134-triode-lab-2a3-set-amplifier/

  17. Last year HiFi man had some pretty good sales right after Christmas. I bought an open box HE400i for I think around $130 and the prices were so good I also got the HE350 for something like $80. Both are great for the prices paid -- it was less than $220 for both shipped. The HE400i is regulary $450. It's now on sale for $159 but appears to be out of stock. Check their website for other items on sale: https://store.hifiman.com/index.php/he-400i.html https://store.hifiman.com/clearance-sales
  18. The speakers aren't mine, but you can find more photos here (yes, they are gorgeous): @RobBeamer
  19. This is a great deal. I picked up a set from Costco in December at this price.
  20. I didn't know @kirby but this is still sad news. Looks like he was a local. Condolences to his family and friends.
  21. What do you consider vintage and what do you consider "crazy expensive?"
