  1. Great speakers - perfect condition.  I'll say 9.5/10 because nothing is perfect and I'm sure there is some minute flaw that I can't see.  I bought them with the intention to replace my Heresy IIs.  For a stand-alone full range speaker I do prefer these to the Heresy because the bass is much more substantial, but I'm running my Heresys with a R-115SW sub so the lack of bass isn't a problem.  For the rest of the spectrum the 3-way on the Heresy edges out the RF82 by a slight margin.

     

    Overall these are nice full range speakers that I just don't have room for in my house.

     

    In the DFW area - asking $300 for the pair.

  2. If the subs in the picture are included, then $1600 might not be bad.  But overall too much.  I sold a pair of walnut LaScalas about 3 years ago that were in very nice shape and the best I could get for them was $1200.  Quite a shame if you ask me considering they are over $8000 new.

  3. The price is fine.  The location is the problem.  With something this big it can't be shipped so your potential buyer for this has to be within your driving area.  I'm in TX.  If you were in Dallas I'd buy this for $300.  


  4. After listening to them more they have a high "sizzle and boom" appeal, but lack the midrange clarity of the Heresys.  Since I am running dual 12" subs with 250w per sub to supplement the Heresys I'm going to stick with them and sell the RF82s.  They would be a very nice speaker to cover the full audio spectrum by themselves, but when you take away the appeal of the stronger low end they don't measure up to the Heresy IIs.

  5. I haven't listened to them head to head yet, but I hooked up the RF82s by themselves to a receiver in the garage and listened to them a bit that way.  My first impression is that the bass was strong, better than the Heresy stand-alone, but not as good as the Heresy with a sub.  The highs seemed stronger and crisper also, but the midrange clarity wasn't as good as the Heresy.  I'll hook them up in my bedroom in the next few days so I can listen side by side with the Heresy.

  6. I have a pair of Heresy IIs but I have a chance to get a pair of RF82 ii towers at a good price.  If I own both, which one do members think would be better? Which to keep and which to sell?  I'm running a 250w Sunfire powered sub to help the low end on the Heresys.  Thoughts?

  7. You can't look at auction prices until just a few minutes before it ends to get any idea of what they're selling for.  I buy a lot from the Goodwill onsite site, but if it's a popular item that people recognize the bidding will get crazy and I've seen a few items get so high that people are bidding more than what they would buy it for new!  So buyer beware and be cautious when bidding.


  8. FOR SALE: Klipsch RB25s WITH STANDS:
    $150

    Offering here to this group before I post it anywhere else.

     

    I've been using a pair of RB 25s with a subwoofer in my master BR. I found some stands to get them to a good listening height. I unexpectedly found a pair of Heresy IIs at an estate sales that were in immaculate condition.

     

    I don't have room for both so the RB 25s need a new home. Heresy IIs to RB 25s isn't even a comparison, so I now have a pair of RB 25s for sale. The condition is almost perfect. I would rate the cabinet a 9/10.  Stands are included.  Drivers are great and sound is great.  Stands included which sell for $30-$40 on their own.

     

    Located in Ft Worth, TX.  I would consider shipping, but the shipping cost on these might be more than the cost of the speakers themselves.

  9. I have a single RF-62 REV IV that I picked up from an auction.  I would like to get a 2nd one to match, OR sell the one I have to someone else looking for a single.

     

    I'm in the Dallas-Ft Worth area and could drive within a reasonable distance to meet someone.


  10. I'm not planning on bringing anything unless someone specifically asks.  I went to a lot of effort the past couple of years and it was basically for nothing.  The expense to bring everything was more money than what I ended up selling anything for.  If you want something, send me a PM and I'll tell you what I have.


  11. Simple question...how well will a K-44e woofer work in a Cornwall II?  I have a chance to pick up some Cornwall IIs that have a woofer that is going to need to be replaced.  At the same time I ran across a pair of K-44e matching 15" that have just been reconed professionally.  Would those work in the Cornwall II?

    I can hook it up and you can play with it, but I have no idea of  the quality of the current cartridge or whether or not it is properly aligned.  So much depends on proper alignment and matching the TT with a good cartridge.  In my experience, I have been able to tell an improvement with certain higher-end tables.  However, it really depends on getting them setup properly.  I've not had any time to get this one setup and sit down to get some quality time evaluating it.  I bought this one on reputation alone and the knowledge that I could flip it.  I currently have a Pro-ject table I'm happy with and didn't buy the Sansui to replace it.  I just picked it up to flip it to someone who would appreciate it.  Having had several Technics 1200's  and 1210's over the years, this one seems to have similar build quality, but a nicer overall finish which I guess would be more appealing for home use vs. the commercial use of the Technics.

    We know that a brand new Pro ject table runs about $400. So in your opinion how does this table sound compared to it?


  13. I am in Fort Worth and I have several turntables but none of them are what I would call high-end. I would be very interested in listening to this turntable to see if buying a high end table really makes that much of a difference in performance over a mid-range table. I'm willing to spend the money to get it but I don't want to do it blind without hearing if it really makes that much of a difference.

    Actually we purchased an A/V receiver from him which we are EXTREMELY pleased with. I do not need Heresies, as I have a pair of originals and HIIs, in addition to all the other Klipsch in this house, including Quintets, RB75s, two pairs of Forte IIs, a pair of Forte IIIs, MWMs/402s, Cornwall IIIs and everything in between! It’s all good. Roy calls me a cry baby...must control my tears!!!  Lol

    Glad you're still enjoying the receiver. It seems like the real problem you have is trying to find the time to go from one room to the next to listen to all of the great speakers you have.
