  1. Yeah the la scala's are incredible speakers. To this day they are one of my favorite speakers I have owned from Klipsch. Sounds to me like you actually like them better than the K-horns?
  2. What do you mean stupidly selling your la scala's, did you sell them now you regret it?
  3. Yes you are very right about that and truthfully I really don't want to sell these I would rather wait until my wife and I get a house and use them but financially I could use the money right now. I guess if they sell they sell if they dont I will enjoy them.
  4. Lol my fault I completely forgot to put that in there.. Original post has been updated. I am asking 12k now please tell me guys if you think that's a a fair price. I know everyone on here is honest and I've met nothing but good people on here. I know them being a mismatched pair that will limit my interest like I mentioned but that does not affect how they sound or look. The only time that may affect them is if the buyer wanted to sell them down the line.
  5. Yeah they are definitely gorgeous, my wife says they look more like furniture than a speaker.
  6. I am considering selling my Klipschorn 70th anniversary speakers bought a couple years ago and have literally been sitting in storage for years. I would guess they have less than 10 hours of play time on them if I had to be honest. I bought them then immediately after ended up buying jubilees and storing these. They are 99% mint the only issue is when moving them I used a little hand truck and the lip of the truck got caught on the black baseboard at the front and kind of chipped it. Other than that they are 100% mint and look brand new. They are works of art and sound incredible. To be honest I doubt they are even fully broken in. There is one issue though that I have ran into trying to sell them in the past. They somehow got mixed up at the store I bought them from (onecall.com) and they sent me a mismatched serial number pair. Now they are only one number off but many people that were interested in buying had a big problem with that. Obviously that doesn't affect how they sound but I suppose it will affect resale value down the line if the buyer decided to sell them. I also do not have the boxes anymore as they were huge and I had to get rid of them. I am in the CT area and definitely do not want to ship these so local pick up or someone willing to travel would definitely be ideal. Asking 12,000 OBO Unfortunately the site has an extremely small size limit on photos so if anyone is interested I can send them through email or text.
  7. I know this is a very old thread but I am resurrecting it! I was very fortunate to be able to sell everything I had except for the K-horns! I sold everything to @tidmack it was a great experience and I hope he can chime in and tell me how he is enjoying his jubilee's and all the equipment he bought. I am now considering possibly letting go of the K-horns as well. Just kind of putting a feeler out to see if I have any interest. They are located in CT and I reallly don't want to go through the trouble of shipping them so I would like someone local or willing to travel @tidmack saw them so he can attest to the pristine shape they are in.
  8. I know the price is getting higher and higher every year. They are already significantly more than what I paid when I bought them new a couple years ago.
  9. Yes that is them! Thank you so much for that. I have been out of state as I stated I moved to Rhode island and havent been able to get any pictures. I never even thought to look at my old thread. Sorry to those of you that I haven't responded to. Truthfully parting with these things is harder than I thought. I am having doubts as to whether or not I should sell them or just store them until I can use them again.
  10. Long story short I recently moved in with my girlfriend and am thinking of downsizing. The place we got can't accomodate all the audio equipment I have. I am in the CT area I have a pair of Klipsch Jubilee's purchased from Cory Harrison mint condition with Xillica XP 2040 As well as Klipschorn 70th anniversary speakers. Those I actually have barely used. Bought them and didn't really like the way they sounded in my listening room so bought the Jubilees. The problem with the Khorns is the serial numbers don't match. The store I bought them from got confused and sent the wrong pair but they are only off by 1 number. I also have JTR orbital Shifters x2 and Emotiva XPA-7 amp and XMC-1 processor Prices are Jubilees 5k Khorns 8k JTR 2k each Emotiva XMC-1 $800 Emotiva XPA-7 Gen 3 1k Shipping on speakers would not be available buyer would need to be able to transport them but i will help move them out of the house. Pictures upon request.
  11. Check out the KI-396 SMA I am running it between two Jubilees and it's fantastic. It's got the same K-691 driver the Jubilee's use and it blends flawlessly. Don't forget to contact @MetropolisLakeOutfitters he's a great Klipsch dealer. http://www.klipsch.com/pro/permanent-installation
  12. Ya I know plus it's very risky moving them without damaging them.
  13. Yes I do own a pair that I would consider selling, they've got probably less than 10 hours of playtime on them. They've been just sitting in my storage room for months now and I can say definitely having the closed backs helps with bass response tremendously. The whole reason I bought those instead of the regular K-horns is because one of the corners in my room has a pipe so I was not able to get it flush in the corner (had to be about a foot out) and they still have very impressive clean bass.
  14. This is more of a post to see what kind of interest there would be for these. As many of you know I purchased the 70th anniversary K-horns not too long ago and then pretty quickly upgraded to the Jubilee's. I doubt the K-horns even have 10 hours of play time on them honestly. They have been sitting in storage for months now and I've been debating selling them or keeping them but I really don't see any use in keeping them truthfully. As I said they are brand new and I paid 12k for them One of them has a slight chip in the baseboard from moving them. Very small I will post pictures but with all considered I was thinking around a 10k asking price. I do still have all original paperwork of course but I do not have the boxes. Shipping is really not an option because it would be too expensive and risky without the boxes but I do have a truck and I could deliver within a reasonable distance. I know the asking price is high but I did just buy them and honestly I'd rather just keep them than let them go for any less. Oh ya and as many of you know the serial numbers are not sequential it's off by one number. Haha, the more I think about it I'm probably better off just keeping them but you never know I mean the serial number's obviously don't affect sound but I know that's very important to some.
  15. Hey @Lost240 it just so happens that after all the upgrading I've done I am selling my 2 that are in pretty much mint condition. They are the ones with the braided finish I posted pictures when I got them. I'll take some pics right now but I am actually located in CT as well. I believe we have spoken before.
  16. I had a marantz that would do that as well. Since my seating position isn't right in the center it would make one speaker much louder than the other. What I always did was keep all the other settings intact but set the speakers to the same level dB which make it sound a lot better in my situation. Also in my experience, not sure about your AVR because I've never used that model but stereo mode should keep the calibration. Make sure and set the speakers to small also, I know a lot of those callibration programs love to set them to large. If they are set to large, it may not use the sub when in stereo mode. That's been my experience with many AVR's.
  17. @BlueHusky79 It was a pleasure doing business with you and meeting you and your wife, enjoy your new amp!
  18. Perhaps you just don't like the sound of the Marantz. Personally I had one and I didn't much care for the sound either. I ended up getting rid of it pretty quickly. I first upgraded to a separate amp which improved it a bit but then later on ended up just getting rid of it all together. I never really cared for it's sound. I had the SR5011
  19. Note this image here is of my 7 channel just to give those an idea of how it looks when it's on. They are both literally the same and look the same, 5 channel just has 5 lights instead of 7 and says 5 in the bottom right corner instead of 7. Just don't have the other hooked up so I used this one as an example. All other pictures are of the one for sale.
  20. I've got a spare Emotiva XPA Gen 3 5 channel amp. Everyone on here know's I am a huge fan of Emotiva. The reason I am selling this is because I ended up buying a 7 channel for the extra channels my Jub's needed and I thought I would have another application for the 5 channel which is why I didn't just send it in for upgrade. Turns out it's been just sitting and I don't see anything going on with it. Amp is MINT used way less than a year and I actually do have original box this time. Brand new this thing goes for 1600 with the configuration I've got so I think 1200 is a fair price considering age and condition. I would rather not ship because it would be expensive but I will look into it if there is interest because as I said I do have the original box and anyone that has bought from Emotiva knows they give a very heavy duty box. This thing has XLR inputs as well as RCA and is very heavy and well built. I personally think Emotiva goes very well with Klipsch. Unit also has a 12volt trigger input and output. I actually do not have that cable though it did come with it. I am using it for one of my subs but they are very cheap on either amazon or you can even get them at radio shack. I paid 5 dollars for the ones I am using. They are not required though as it does have an on/standby switch in the front. Also as many of you know these things are upgradeable to 7 channel but just an FYI if you wish to do that you do NEED to send it in to Emotiva, they do not send the extra channels because it's a risk of electrical shock, trust me I tried having them send the part's they will not budge on that matter so if you want to upgrade, be prepared to send it out. You also need original box to send it out so anyone interested I would highly suggest keeping original box as well. They will NOT accept it if it's not in its original box. Alright time for pictures...
