    In Indy... Chorus II & Marantz 4400

    These are circa 1990. Paper tags are a dead giveaway, but the model# decodes the same model year.

    WTB Chorus II Passive Woofer

    If your search does not bear fruit, I would be happy to re-buy the single oak Chorus II back from you that is in need of the passive. Good Luck. I have not found the Walnut pair I have been looking for myself.

    SOLD Heresy II serial #3 and #4

    I am currently attempting to work out the serial ## and decode, so I can determine the historical significance on this pair. I don't have the ##'s yet though.

    What I Got Today!

    I needed to replace a broken tape measure and found these new models. Along the way I saw this new model saw on the clearance table. Crazy to even consider paying this much ($400) for a circular saw, but this was the store display model, so it was 25% off and that comes out to be $50 more than what the older 9.0 model sold for while adding about 2X the power and 33% more battery capacity. If you have not heard, the new 21700 lithium cells are a very substantial improvement over the 18650 last gen cells. I also buy one big driver bit set annually and this was the biggest one they had. BTW I got the security alarm included, so that is sitting in a bucket of water chirping away dying a slow death. LOL

    SOLD Heresy II serial #3 and #4

    He has a guy coming tomorrow, but he did not sound confident about the buyers ability to pay in full. I told him to call me if the sale falls apart. Then I ask myself why do I keep doing this? I don't need them, I am sitting on 33 speakers again.

    SOLD Heresy II serial #3 and #4

    Confirmed with the seller these are serial #000003/4 and are new old stock in unused condition. He has a hoard of new old stock much of it pre 1980. He sold most of the speakers, tube amps, preamps. Still has not got to the turntables or pro gear yet. Just selling everything now, beware appointments to pickers are not welcome. Send him a wish list and you may get lucky. Most items are buried and not currently listed for sale.

    SOLD Heresy II serial #3 and #4

    SOLD An active Milwaukee Craigslister who is a prominant collector, now turned seller, named Acorn Larry is listing a seamingly astonishing pair of Klipsch Heresy II's in Oak lacquer finish. They appear to be in showroom condition. The original packaging boxes included in the sale look to be in like new condition as well. The pictures show riser speaker stands, so may be included in the sale, but that is not confirmed. I hope to get some help from those here who are familiar with the 2003 Heresy serial number decoding to verify the claim of being #3 and #4. What do you think of the pricing? Yes it is very high, but with that being said what value could be added here given the condition? What do you know about the commonality of the oak lacquer finish in heresy II's? Not like they are Brazilian tea tree nut oil or something. Here are a few pics from the ad which can be seen here https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/ele/d/klipsch-collectors-heresy-ii/6740774808.html

    Forte II Risers

    @ARjetman Thank you for starting the thread. There always is some interest in new risers, as they take the most beating being the first point of contact with the floor, and have reached age 22-33 now. Used risers are exceedingly rare and your method is the most recommended method to creating authentic looking reproduction risers. Great outcome on the color match. If you get a chance please add/edit your OP with details on measurements, materials, products you used so you can provide those that visit here later a good reference for their own builds.
