  1. Agreed! However, if running a Heritage center speaker (e.g. La Scala) in a Home Theater setup, one might consider two of the new Heritage subs to give a more balanced aesthetic! 😉
  2. After spending the past year looking for a single used La Scala to use as a center channel in our home theater, I was lucky to find a pair of La Scalas (1978) for sale locally this past weekend at a great price. Overall, they are in average cosmetic condition and the drivers seem to work as they should. Regarding cosmetics, there are some chips and marks in the veneer on the edges and top plate. Also, they appear to be stained a dark walnut color. I believe they were originally raw birch based on the unfinished sections inside the bass bin cavity as well as looking up information on the serial numbers. This is something that I’ll have to remedy sooner than later because the contrasting colors stand out. Any ideas on what to do regarding the finish for someone who doesn’t have wood working or wood finishing skills? Painting black maybe? Are there vinyl wraps that could work and look nice? As far as the crossovers, do they need to be replaced and/or updated? The tweeters are the DE-120 and I have the originals also. Any other ideas or suggestions would be welcome. Thanks!
  3. @PrestonTom Thank you for your reply. Good news! This weekend I saw a FB ad for a "vintage stereo package" that included a set of La Scalas located a mere 45 minutes from me in Virginia Beach and reasonably priced. Reached out and now they're in my garage! They'll need a little cosmetic work but they work great for now. I'll post some info and pics in the larger forum.
  4. H.T. is in the main living space and looks will matter, unfortunately. Ideally, I'd locate a La Scala (or a pair) that needs some cosmetic and/or other work and priced accordingly. I could re-veneer or paint them as well as fix any issues with operation. I did have one lined up at the end of last year but that fell through after waiting a few months.
  5. Don’t have a La Scala. This would be the center between my 1985 walnut oil Khorns.
  6. Thanks for the link! Would the Belle work as well as a La Scala in the center position as far as timbre matching?
  7. You make no sense. Too much “juice” tonight brother? Just say’n.
  8. What??? Why would you assume that? What did I miss here?
  9. Oh! Didn't get from their post that this is a "Klipsch sound" issue. From the O.P.'s title and post I thought they were talking primarily about potentially downsizing from Heritage to another Klipsch line. O.P., please weigh in and reply.
  10. Would that result in an improvement in sound quality for the O.P.?
  11. Two original Klipsch K-77 tweeters without lenses. Lenses were sold separately. These came as extras with a pair of 1976 Klipschorns I purchased earlier this year. I haven't tested them but previous owner indicated they did work when he removed them. $75 + shipping/fees.
