    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    Room Treatment: Diffusion

    This link may help someone with working with diffusion panels. Simple explanations of some of the concepts of how distance and placement and amount of diffusion effects the sounds we hear. http://arqen.com/sound-diffusers/faq/?awt_l=809_W&awt_m=3vamGTydekOvzB9&utm_source=diffusersdiy-list&utm_medium=email&utm_term=reflex&utm_campaign=DiffusersDIY-followup#modulations
  15. From acoustic memory, considering I run a Chorus II/Forte II sysytem, the Forte III had a very familiar top and bottom. I felt that the midrange imaged wider. Smoother. Accurate. Defined. Balanced. I think I have the mumps! I thought the Cornwall III was imaging wider on the low end, but not balanced. I definitely noticed a dip at the lower midrange/upper woofer cutoff. The Klipschorn AK6 was for me a more enjoyable experience on every level without question compared to the lesser models. This all makes me want a Chorus III even more.

    New Khorns???

    I spent 1 hour at Audio Emporium (Milwaukee County, Wisconsin) with the entire Klipsch Heritage Collection. Yes that does include the Klipschorn AK6. Dave Holmes is the owner, and was my contact. Dave allowed me and my wife the freedom to listen to what I wanted on what I wanted. He provided us with insight and technical details, and made sure we had a positive experience. The Klipschorns were set up in corners of an alcove. McIntosh at the source and Kimber Cable everywhere. Ipad and Tidal made switching songs a breeze. My time was limited, but I made sure I got 5 songs in on the new Khorns before I continued browsing. There were a pair of Lascalas set up in the main space, but I wanted time with the Forte III's and Cornwall III's sitting side by side in another listening room. I went back and forth comparing those 2 but did not indulge in the Heresey III's that were bookending the Forte III's. I will be returning for more demo time. I also noticed Elac, Goldenear, Magnapan, Quad, Emotiva, Salamander Designs. I have honestly never in my life been surrounded by this much gear, of this much quality, of this much value, all readily available for purchase. I highly recommend Audio Emporium as a must visit to any serious audiophile that is visiting in the Milwaukee area. Here is a link to their site. http://www.audioemporium.com

    What I Got Today!

    OK, not Klipsch, but I also maintain a JBL room so this pertains to that space. JBL 250Ti circa 1984. The original owner passed away 10 years ago, and his son who has kept them in immaculate condition graciously allowed me to purchase them from him. He told me moving out of state and downsizing has its disadvantages, but he rarely had time to use them anyway. As some of you may know I have recently made serious efforts to obtain such a pair of speakers, and to find them within 150 miles, and in such pristine condition is unbelievable to me. They even came with very large speaker spikes added by the original owner. Although there are very few examples of actual sales of JBL 250Ti's made over the past 10 years, I ended up paying to the lower end of that range, but a substantial investment was made no doubt. I am also considering purchasing his entire rack system, also circa 1984, with the prize pieces being a reconditioned Sumo Andromeda amp and a Sumo Electra preamp. Yeah, I know, get rid of the tv stand, hey, I am trying but no one wants it so far Here they are in their new home.

    Removed OPPO UDP-205 no longer available

    I have edited the OP to inform anyone that reads this that I have accepted a purchase of a pair of JBL 250TI in perfect condition for cash, and also the OPPO UDP-205 is no longer available. Thanks for looking.
  22. EDIT: I have an accepted sale offer for a pair of JBL 250Ti's in perfect condition paid in cash. The OPPO UDP-205 is no longer available either. Thanks for looking. Just an off chance here. Are you wanting to purchase a new UDP-205 new, unopened, factory sealed? If you are, I am looking to trade for a pair of Klipsch Chorus II in oiled walnut plus cash. Also I have a deep desire to own a pair of JBL 250Ti but that is probably for another forum. If you do not own what I want, I will be happy to read your offers of other equipment you feel is in a similar supply/demand crunch. Send a PM only please for those other pieces you have. If it is a cash only offer you are looking for, please ask me in a PM first. And please don't be offensive, no is always a perfectly acceptable answer. List of items I would consider: Klipsch: Chorus II -_ Forte II -_ Forte III -_ Walnut CW II _- CWIII _- JBL: 250Ti 240Ti Mcintosh: ? Denon/Marantz: Pre/pro model years 2016 and newer.

    I misread, misspoke, misunderstood. Sorry for the rants in this thread people. Please send PM's

    Removed OPPO UDP-205 no longer available

    I am well within the Klipsch Forum Garage Sale rules. I only said cash to offset valuation for anyone who makes a equipment trade offer, which I have had, to make up the differences for the seller, which I have, which have been acceptable terms to all those who I have had real business with. At this time it is all about the equipment not meeting the requirements, not the issues suggested by anyone other than me.
