  1. Posting for a good friend - these are original owner and have been in storage unused for some time. All original components one small ding on one of the cabinets - they are selling due to a family situation. speakers and seller located in Cleveland, TN Asking $450!!
  2. I forgot to mention that with 4 kids in the house, and a true love of the oiled walnut look, it would alleviate my constant stress not only when entertaining but on day to day keeping them pristine
  3. What store did you find those at, in Maine?? curious that is a fantastic deal.
  4. Hello - I have Chorus 2 in Oiled Walnut - finish is fantastic still and they are holding up well with annual Howards treatment. Question - I went to a friends recently and he had some smoked glass cut as protective tops for his Cornwalls - wondering if I should do this to further protect the tops of the Chorus and if anyone with walnut oiled Klipsch (any model) may have done this and have pictures to share??? Thanks! James
  5. Hi - I just sold a pair of Forte2 on consignment at New England HiFi in South Portland and they had another pair listed for $999! I ran mine from a marantz 2220 at one point and it was a nice combo! Good luck
  6. are these a suitable replacement for the Chorus 2 passives, or is that a different specific part #?
  7. Anyone in New England looking for a KLF-C7 - all stock no smoking or pets works as it should. Cabinet is in excellent condition! Asking $425
  8. That is what I have done thus far - just replated the tweeter diaphragms in these and my Academy center and havent' touched crossovers yet.
  9. I have opportunity at a pair of Forte 2 in Oiled Oak - excellent condition no scratches, smoking, pets, etc... all original no upgrades.... not listed for sale but would like to pair fair price for both parties, what would these typically sell for recently? sorry if this isnt the right forum, if someone would direct me I'll repost properly!
  10. Also thrilled to report that almost an entire can of DeOxit spray was used and the input selector knob finally was moving and moving well and alas - both channels work and sound amazing! a couple of the switches were quite dirty too - one of the speaker selector switches spring wasn't clicking, a little cleaning to do and a light to replace at some point but for now just enjoying it... thanks everyone!
  11. I am happy to report that after a nice Sunday drive to Boston area this 730 is now in Maine at its new home - will start to work to repair/restore to its working glory!! Thanks to John!
