  1. I think you are correct. This old stereophile article says balanced inputs are a $500 option but it doesn’t even specify which model they reviewed. I’m thinking maybe the 8008ST they were an option or the $500 is the BB? The one I found is cosmetically challenged, plus shipping from the other coast won’t be cheap. If it’s the BB it’s a good deal. For the ST it’s probably not worth it. It does not have balanced inputs so I’m leaning towards it’s the ST model. Strange they wouldn’t at least put some kind of label on that back specifying what it is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Aren’t the balanced inputs optional? When I searched images I’ve seen both. Everything I see they look pretty identical. I was trying to avoid asking the guy to take the cover off Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’m looking at an 8008. Always wanted to try one or the 4004. I found one for sale but it’s not local. I want the 8008BB. The amp just says 8008 on it and the owner has no idea. Anyone know how to distinguish the 8008BB from the 8008ST? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. These aren’t too far. Seems like an awesome deal with upgrades. No affiliation https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649763069-klipsch-chorus-ii/

    You can save quite a bit on CL if you like them https://newjersey.craigslist.org/ele/d/mountain-lakes-klipsch-la-scala-speakers/7301378405.html
  6. I’m local to you. I already have way more speakers than I know what to do with. If someone has suggestions for the horns to complete them I’d be interested.

    https://www.avsforum.com/threads/klipsch-la-scalas-in-san-jose-california-1000-obo.3184327/ I’m not sure about the mods/ports lol but seems like you can get them for under $1000. With the prices I’ve been seeing, I’d check them out if I wasn’t across the country.

  9. When I’ve used uShip I got bids immediately. The longer you wait it gets cheaper and people undercut each other. It’s like ebay but backwards lol. I advise you list them locally and save yourself a big headache. They’ll sell. The cost and risk of shipping speakers like that kills the deal for most.
  10. I agree with everything you’re saying. I know I’m the minority but I actually prefer black. This one looks much nicer than most LSI’s I see. I live in NYC. They don’t come up for sale here often, when the do they seem to be about double your spread sheets. They don’t last long, so I assume they sell for close to asking price. I appreciate your spreadsheets. Very helpful and informative.
  11. If LSI averages $1000 for the pair, I’d say it seems right on the money. $500 for 1 equals $1000 for two?
  12. I’ve shipped across the country with uship. It’s pretty cool. You create the job description of what you’re shipping and an estimate of when you want it done. Different transport companies will bid on the job. Prices start a little high, then everyone outbids each other. For instance you find a company out of Florida that’s going to have a truck headed down with extra room or empty and they’re looking to fill it up. You research the companies by reviews and information and pick the one you want. Hopefully the seller is cooperative
  13. These are a few hours from me. I’d take them on but the possibly bad woofer kills the deal. Maybe a loose dust cover, but as far as I know replacements are a needle in a haystack. I’ve always wanted to try the Epic C3 or C4.
