    Quartets

    https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/ele/d/minneapolis-klipsch-quartet-speakers/7033220662.html One more listing. $550 in MN
  2. Still available for as long as you see this ad.
  3. Sounds like you never owned a Klipsch speaker before. Would you like to try a pair of Klipsch before you say "end game"?
  4. I have read that article before. It is what actually inspired me to go out and purchase 2 pairs of JBL 250Ti's over the past couple years. Coming from a man who personally designed hundreds of products over 40 years, for them to make a his personal top 5 list told me that my own youth era dreams should indeed be validated. Now if I could ever get my hands on Everest models. Probably will never happen for me, but I would settle for M2's LOL. BTW he really got the shafted in the end at Harman. Basically just asked him to come in to the office and handed him his walking papers and escorted out. Other JBL engineers followed him out soon after. http://www.audioheritage.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?37395-End-of-an-Era-43-years-with-JBL-is-Over

    Quartets

    Found another pair for ya'll, again. This one is near Minneapolis and the price is $450. Will be interesting to see how many days these last compared to the other recent listings. https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/ele/d/mound-klipsch-quartet-speakers/7018326264.html
  6. https://iowacity.craigslist.org/ele/d/dearing-klipsch-forte-ii-speakers/7016689531.html Forte II pair for $700 on CL

    Quartets

    I got $750 within the first 24 hours when I sold my Quartets on Ebay.
  9. This is the Hot Topic for me now. Going to concentrate on the sale of this amp. Time wasters and my own refusal to give shipping quotes have proven to be past road blocks on other sights. Please research your own shipping costs. I would love to sell this here to another member. I will pack it myself like it is going to war. I can deliver this myself if required for 50 cents per mile from 53932.
  10. The other ones on the list are not current, but are not vintage either, 5-10 years as can be evidenced by their current resale pricing.
  11. A very accurate statement. Do not confuse any L100 with the new classics, other than they are 3 way speakers in a wood cabinet. Best bang for the buck 3 way vintage speaker in a space conscious wood cabinet with true impressive bass response to 30Hz for under $1K the JBL 240Ti is my go to speaker. Above 50Hz, another story completely. If you want to do better than 240Ti you could look for JBL M2 Master Reference Monitors or JBL 4367 Synthesis consumer versions. Expect to expand your budget $5K-8K. Other recommendations for high performance, lowish price tags, and smaller cabinet sizes on the used market that will beat the snot out of the ones the OP is entertaining are: Revel Performa F52 Definitive Technology BP7000 Paradigm Reference Signature S8 Klipschorns make the performance list, but unfortunately their size puts them out of the running for this list Of course each one of these speakers has their place, and will perform admirably in their own respectful ways in most peoples homes. In the brand new speaker world, it is very hard to beat proven winners on the used market for any given price range.
