  1. There is another pair closer to home for $800, and at least that one comes with a RC-7 center. I said "go fish" to that "deal". 

    I do however remember selling a pair myself on ebay and collecting $750 so I guess it may happen for these guys too.

    I just thought it was funny to see quartets listed for $1100. Pretty sure that shattered the previous record.

    Chorus would be more likely to sell though.

    I agree. Just name them Klipsch Heritage Chorus III. Once people had a chance to hear them, I don't see the Forte having a chance. Will even eat into the Cornwall sales. As a company, they need to focus on putting as much cash in the drawer as possible, so product diversity is what is likely getting in the way. I know I will be not be selling any of my 3 pairs of my modified Chorus II's to pay for anything in the current Heritage lineup. Exception being LaScalla AL5, size and money ruling them out though. No way 5 of them are ever going into my room. Even 5 Cornwalls in any flavor wouldn't make it.

    I;'d agree.  More Heritage than Chorus.

    Not picking on you, just sayin....Forte is not any more Heritage than Chorus. Both were considered "Extended Heritage" before Klipsch adopted the Forte III into the current Heritage moniker.The Forte compared to the Chorus just sold more pairs in the past, cost less, was smaller, lighter, likely had a larger profit margin. As far as room space.... most of the Forte III rooms I saw set up had ample spaaaace for a larger speaker. And in the speaker world, size does matter. Laws of physics.


    Stay tuned....8/23/19

    I am sure that a certain Heritage will be getting a new horn soon. But will it be tractrix? And will it have mumps? More importantly, how will it sound? And then how will that sound make you feel? Here is to good things yet come.

  4. Anyone else here super excited to hear the announcement of the newest Klipsch Heritage speaker to get an update? Can't wait to get all the details. Hope we do get all of the details on 8/23/19.  I will post links to the media announcements as they get posted. I am sure we are many months away from any official reviews though. I know I will be visiting my Klipsch dealer for an audition just as soon as they get their hands on a pair. 

  5. I believe this will be the final week to get your votes in before one of these iconic speakers will be getting their turn at a refresh. Which one it will be? I will not be adding to the rumors here, but I am pretty sure I already figured it out. If you know Klipsch and follow their current sales focus, you will be able to figure it out too. I will leave it up to you guys to search for details on the current lineup and future plans. I have no details to add. Anything I know about has already been posted on this website. Thank you all for participating in my poll and expressing your interests. I am very pleased to have the opportunity to share these wishes with you all.  Super stoked to have a "NEW" Klipsch Heritage to gush over in the months ahead.

    I think you will have half your wish by the end of the month, and the other half -well might not even be on the distant horizon.


    I'm guessing there are a lot of factors that go into all of this.  Product placement, pricing, what they have on the drawing board for 1, 2 and 3 years out.



    Interesting comment. Care to elaborate a little bit more? I am just a little unsure of where you were directing your post.

    Very nice, I'll bet 5 Chorus lls sound spectacular.....congrats, I'm digging the granite.

    Upon reviewing the custom granite tops, in my listening tests, I have noticed slightly enhanced upper midrange transients, ocassional extended decay on the high notes, and a noticeably  faster roll off on the bottom end. I could not detect any induced ringing. Also, I could not perceive the changes in resonant frequency due to the added coupling. Well worth the additional investment.


    If any one believes that BS, send me a PM cause I have some stuff for sale you may also like.

    I myself just like the style and protection they will provide.

  8. I finally finished cutting my black granite slabs that I have had for almost a year now. Placed them on top of my 5 Chorus II's and my diy audio racks for a seamless look. The other 2 Chorus II's are in surround position with matching black granite tops. So what do you guys think? Do you like the look of black granite and walnut?

    Shiit Loki tone control/equalizer. This is my second one for another system in the house. The first one I'm actually using in my main system with a tube amp.

    This is the only analog EQ/tone control I've ever had that didn't impact the sound in a negative way. I use it very sparingly to cut some mids and it works very well.....tubes and solid state

    I have heard good things about that piece. A couple db here and there. A very good problem solver. Not quite parametric though, but who needs that?
