  1. I have a nice L52 with panlocs I would sell. It's the same size as an L12, but with with round feet, not wedge feet. $270 plus shipping from 53528. Jeff
  2. Jim, Flanner's in the Milwaukee area used to offer this service, but I'm not sure if they still do. There was an "upgrade" kit you could purchase from Klipsch to bring your Heritage speaker networks and wiring up to par with what was currently being sold. When I used to work at American TV in the late 1990's, they too, sold the upgrade kits, but didn't do the installation. I hope this helps a bit. Jeff
  3. I really appreciate the compliment, Joe. I wish I could compare this one to something else, but honestly, I just don't have a ton of experience with tube amps. I can say that what really blew me away the first time I heard this Cantabile is how much headroom it has and how upfront the bass was on my Klipschorns. If you are able to sell an amp and have further interest, don't hesitate to reach out. Jeff
  4. Peter, you made me spit my cereal out this morning! I know we can't lean on a Stereophile review too heavily, but this amp is truly a brick shi*house. Their comments about build quality are spot on. It's not fussy, either, which I like. I still use solid state stuff because of its "plug n play" characteristics, but I've had this tube amp for about 15 years and have enjoyed the hell out of it.
  5. My sincere apologies, Joe. I appreciate your interest and patience, too. If you have interest in the amp, shoot me a PM and I can tell you the story of how I purchased it directly from a Nobis employee. Jeff
  6. Joe, good to hear from you! I completely jumped the gun on this post...hoping to get the amp from my Dad's house tonight and get some photos posted. My apologies for leaving you hanging! Jeff
  7. I purchased a box from McIntosh today and this until will be on eBay in the next couple weeks.
  8. Bumping this up. I can't stress how clean this unit is. The chrome is bright and not pitted. The power supply, cage, and face are also super clean. Have your favorite audio do the cap kit and you should be ready for the better part of your lifetime. Jeff
  9. I'm not surprised to get you never had a return, Andy. Even while posting, you're detail orientated and particular about getting facts straight. You should start a new thread about the day in the life of HDBRBuilder while at Klipsch. Seriously.
  10. Here's a pair of '81 (W serial #) Heresys in my house! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. Okay, what a great tidbit. Are speakers with a letter A built by YOU?
  12. No other stamps, Andy. Just the USA along the edge. Jeff
  13. Enjoy the speakers, Kelly! What an absolute pleasure to meet you today. Thanks again for the response on these, guys, they're going to a terrific home. Jeff
  14. Super cool info! I responded to my other thread with the Cornwalls for sale and tagged you, so no one reading this gets confused with which speakers we're talking about. Jeff
  15. @HDBRbuilder , here is a photo of the stamp. Grade stamp of some sort? Jeff
  16. Andy, I appreciate you setting me straight on that. I've always described Heritage speakers that came from the factory without a grill as decorators, but I understand completely that the serial number description for these doesn't have any sort of "decorator" designation. For anyone else who reads this, you will not regret paging through some of Andy's posts. He was here when I signed up in the late '90s and is a wealth of knowledge. Most guys from that era don't come around here any more, for a variety of reasons, but it is damn nice to see Andy posting regularly again. Back in the day, he was the only "golden age" Klipsch employee on the board and has great PWK stories, insight into build strategy, and hints to make our speakers sound better. Each member's posts are archived though our profiles and some should almost be required reading for members to get an idea of where this forum came from. Thanks again. Jeff
  17. The grill material and banding appear to be finish nailed to the fronts.
  18. Bump, with price reduction to $850. Jeff
  19. I've had a few inquiries on these Cornwalls, with two people asking if I am open to an offer. I have adjusted the price to where I absolutely need to be on these. Jeff
  20. No worries at all! If I were closer, I'd be in to assist. I'm a transplant, from the Milwaukee area originally. I will check out Madisound sometime, I am not familiar with them. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
