  1. I got some more KLIPSCHHHHHH RP-160M going to be pulling front height duty for atmos/dts/auro3d content. I needed a replacement pair of bookshelves for this location when I discovered a bad driver in my old pair. I made a few calls, got a few leads for the RP-600M, but one look at Craigslist is all it took to get these guys. Funny story goes with this purchase. So I call phone number on the CL ad and the guy says come get em'. I say, I am going to the baseball stadium tonight to watch a game, so can you meet me somewhere to make the trip reasonable for me. 150 miles between us. He says sure and we set up to meet in a parking lot, where I drive to and wait. So this guy shows up, and he ends up being the same dude I just sold my Klipsch Academy speaker to two weeks ago in another parking lot location. He is like WTF are you doing here. I am also shocked, because we emailed on the first go around and neither of our phones made the contact familiarity apparent. I made sure to lock in the contact info this time. Thanks again if you ever read this David.
  2. you need to use an image resizer to edit your photo to get under the limit. You can try to crop as well.
  3. I agree. I even state something similar either in my add, or my response. Not getting my addy without some voice calls. Who I horse trade with is very important to me, and I am not afraid to bail-out. Recently I have resorted to making sales in parking lots to defeat some distance challanges. So far so good, but then I have not been the one holding the cash either. Google earth sat pics of given addresses also is very helpful. * disclaimer my statement is broad in aspect, and is not specific to anyone referred to, or participating within this thread.
  4. Pics, or it didn't happen. JK. Thanks for bailing me out. Glad it was you and not me. I needed them like a hole in my head. Seriously though, If you want to hang out on the forum, we would love your company. Welcome and congratulations.
  5. Some of the awesomeness I saw at the Axpona 2019 show.
  6. I agree. For instance When the Levee Breaks by Led Zeppelin sounded incredibly flat. I have heard the Forte III's before and had a better experience. I really think Klipsch missed the mark here and really should have used the opportunity to bring in Khorns or LaScalas. I heard so many amazing rooms at the Axpona show. IMHO the Klipsch room was the second poorest of them all. Unlike most spaces, everyone in the room with me was bluejeans and t-shirt and tennis shoes. The worst was the Harmon JBL L100 Classic demo room. It wasn't that $40K made the difference either. HSU did very well for $1200 and SVS gave me a nice body massage while watching a clip of TMNT for under $2K.

  8. Sorry I am out of stock now. Only have an extra KV-3 in medium oak remaining. I updated the thread. I know recently another member had 3 Klipsch Academy in Black that were offered. Do a search and give him a PM.
  9. For reference. Green Bay company. https://hifiheaven.net/shop/Klipsch-RF-52-II-Floorstanding-Speaker?language=en&currency=USD&gclid=Cj0KCQjw7sDlBRC9ARIsAD-pDFq8lWOfxFnOp41tr3UpczIGlBMVyWBYkujTiKXyrZj8brvcjUTNOysaArMLEALw_wcB
  10. I helped him out by sharing some of the latest prices as reported within our forums very own used Klipsch sold for pricing spreadsheet, clearly demonstrating the overindulgence here. I am however still interested.
  11. In 2004 I had very unpleasant results with a $1500 (adjusted for inflation) Yamaha AVR when combined with extended heritage. Times have changed, but not for the better I am afraid on anything non flagship. Oh, and if you want that receiver, I will sell it to you for $100. Makes for a piss pounding JBL garage system. Just find something to get by with for now, then go with Denon or Marantz after August when the prices are 55% of MSRP.
  12. What other Klipsch speakers did you see at the show? I am going tomorrow and would like a heads-up. Thanks
  13. I know there is a forum for those dedicated to the format. http://www.tapeheads.net/ I had all 100+ of my cassette tapes stolen out of my car many years ago. The thieves used a crowbar and peeled the door open. Been on CD ever since. Also, I did recently acquire and subsequently sell a very nice tape deck though. 1980 Aiwa AD-770 3 head in the original box. Got $212 for it. Never got to hear it, cause I have no tapes.
  14. Late, but posting anyway $500 is top market price. I have sold, and seen other sold for that. The midrange is lacking. KLF-30 solves that for a substantial increase in price. Also harder to find. As always, buy it now, before it is gone Sell it later when you find something better rinse repeat
  15. https://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/klipsch-70th-anniversary-khorns-one-of-70-pair-worldwide.864669/ If you can't open it, let me know.
  16. @Born2RockU $3K now. Best bet anymore is to get lucky on Ebay and put in your auto bid up to your max, then wait until you get one for for your price. It is possible to get to the $2K level that way. Anything less, anywhere else, and they get sold before you can respond. IMHO they will not drop in price over the next several years. At this point the Oppo UDP-205 hand has been played. Everyone is aware that selling them now for less is like gifting away cash.
  17. These have the matching center included https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/dak/ele/d/prior-lake-klipsch-reference-towers-and/6829890776.html If you like these, I can sell you the matching center for an additional $75 in mint condition https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/ele/d/minneapolis-klipsch-kg-45-speakers/6853624518.html
  18. @willlandLOL thanks for repeating me pretty much word for word. 😄
  19. Quick reply while I think about this. Definitely going to want to split your budget among 3 speakers. LCR. You quintets are going to perform much better in surround than they ever did as fronts. You want to match timbre for panning across the front. Where are you located? Are you ok with good conditioned used to double or triple your purchasing power? I will try to help you find something.
  20. How many speakers do you wish to purchase now? What is your speaker budget? What equipment will you be using? Does your wife enjoy very large wood veneered floor standing speakers? Where can you place the new speakers?
  21. Seller says "Last ditch effort" and is asking $7500 on the other forum. He has not listed them on our forum, but not because he does not welcome the attention. Private party, use discretion. I know this pair is original owner. Also not those internet sold pairs. If you are interested you would do well to communicate with the seller immediately.
  22. I concur. Unless you have no sub. If no sub, then front are set to full range. The remaining speakers are set to 80Hz.
