  1. As a lover of Chorus II's let me be the first to say they have lost their marbles.
  2. Vintage Marantz and Chorus II's make a very enjoyable match in my book. I had the 2270 and the 2325 and enjoyed them both. They were a little warmer, thicker, and less detailed sounding than say vintage Yamaha or Luxman. As far as price, minty or pristine pairs have been going between 15-1800. My money its an easy decision at 1200. I call that a downright bargain. Good luck and by all means have fun along the journey.
  3. Agreed but unlike a big venue with bad sound its more like a personal show.
  4. Klipsch just grabs you and doesn't let go.
  5. K2's are still awesome and will never be sold off.
  6. I am so content with the music reaching my ears. It just feels all worth it to reach this level of enjoyment. Klipsch Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ‘
  7. I can just hear DJK's response. The man knew more than most of us combined.
  8. Probably entered some distortion into the mix with only 600wpc.๐Ÿ˜ I find at 1600wpc you give in long before distortion sets in.๐Ÿ™‚ LOL
  9. I must of liked to rock a little too hard. I couldn't keep woofers in mine. Only speakers I've ever blown anything in over 45 years of jamming. Now the K48, now that's a woofer!
  10. I use to have the same impression back when I ran adcom gear in 1990 when they first came out. I still thought they were the best sounding speaker of that particular line which is why I bought them. Thirty three years later and 40 amplifiers, preamplifiers, integrates and receivers later I have enjoyed them with each and every one. The most enjoyment always comes with huge power with gain controls. Adcom, Forte, B&K, Aragon, Bryston, McCormack to name a few and then I switched over to pro gear. QSC, Crown and Carver Professional which changed my enjoyment in a big way. The ease at which the music leaves the speakers is pretty awesome in my opinion. At this point my Chorus II's are receiving 1600 watts rms and they have never sounded so smooth and dynamic. I also admit I must have a pair of subwoofers that I eq in the mix to complete the full band effect. I have tried many different Klipsch offerings but to me the Chorus II still stands tall.
  11. Reminds me of an ELO song. โ€Donโ€™t Bring Me Downโ€
  12. It would be another new purchase from me.๐Ÿ‘
  13. I love my Chorus II's as much as the next guy but come on. There has to be a point where the insanity takes a back seat.
  14. I consider them tone controls. But I am only one voice.
  15. Understatement of the day! That K-48 just can't seem to get enough.
  16. Well I have ran 4 ohm Cerwin Vega DX 9s that dip into the 2 ohm territory without any hiccups. Actually they don't even break a sweat. But what they do for the Chorus II's at low to medium volume is just unbelievable. So much realism throughout the audio spectrum. But when you decide to crack the throttle I am front row at the event. ๐Ÿ‘
  17. I'll stick with my 1200 wpc @8ohms / 1600 wpc @4ohms ss monoblocs. What dips? ๐Ÿ˜

    Sold

    Did Klipsch start carrying the K79 diaphragms again?
  19. That gets my vote. Theyโ€™ve been pending since the 7th. Fake for sale addโ€ฆ..?. At least itโ€™s not as bad as send payment to an overseas bank account.
  20. I would assume more than you paid for them. Klipsch are off the charts these days. Heck everything is. We aren't in Kansas anymore.
