  1. Send me a PM if you have you are willing to sell or know someone who is. Shipping is preferred. Original box and packaging is preferred. Original remote and Wifi dongle included is also preferred.
  2. Thanks for the link @Shiva When you build and work in large commercial buildings like I do, you are not going to have the luxury of wood studs. This goes for taller residential buildings, like high rise condos for instance. Steel studs and drywall everywhere. Wood backer is used for everything in the plans that will be mounted, but plans are always changing. And when they do, I personally have had the greatest success using the Toggler Snaptoggle. I called them zip toggles because they work like a cable zip tie. I have mounted the heaviest things you can imaging using these things. The more it weighs, the more anchors you use. I also really enjoy using the Zip-it style nylons versions for their ease of use. Can't miss. 😉
  3. I am looking for your help on this one. Please participate in anyway you feel fit. I am not looking for a battle, just friendly suggestions on how the current lineup could improve in the future. I choose question #1 to gauge interest potential in either the Cornwall IV or Chorus III I choose question #2 to allow those who would prefer to keep the Forte III an opportunity to participate. Knowing that a Chorus III cannot coexist with a Forte III we have to make a choice. Yes, the Forte III does currently exist with the Cornwall III. So vote accordingly. I choose question #3 to dig a touch deeper into the history of those who voted. You do not need to have experience with any of these speakers mentioned to vote. I choose to keep the poll open indefinitely, as there is no current known plans for either option in the topic title. I will leave my comments and opinions out until a later date once you folks have had an opportunity to participate in this thread. What are your preferred drivers on the Cornwall IV or Chorus III? Are you like me and think that the most logical upgrade path here would be the following... K-100-TI 1” (2.54cm) Titanium diaphragm compression driver on a K-79T horn K-70 1.75” (4.45cm) Titanium diaphragm compression driver on a K-703-M horn K-33-E 15” (38.1cm) Fiber-composite cone woofer in the Cornwall IV New design similar type woofer with the conversion for an acoustic suspension Chorus II with a KD-15 15” (38.1cm) Passive cone radiator Please add content as you wish, but please start your own thread if you want to try to pressure interest toward any other "NEW" speaker not listed in the topic. *Disclaimer* For those folks who are not aware the Cornwall IV and Chorus III do not exist. No known plans for production of them either. They are only a fictional thought of what those speakers could be. This thread intended to gauge potential interest only. I have not been directed by anyone to create this thread.*
  4. 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.
  5. you need to use an image resizer to edit your photo to get under the limit. You can try to crop as well.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Some of the awesomeness I saw at the Axpona 2019 show.
  9. 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.

  11. 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.
  12. For reference. Green Bay company. https://hifiheaven.net/shop/Klipsch-RF-52-II-Floorstanding-Speaker?language=en&currency=USD&gclid=Cj0KCQjw7sDlBRC9ARIsAD-pDFq8lWOfxFnOp41tr3UpczIGlBMVyWBYkujTiKXyrZj8brvcjUTNOysaArMLEALw_wcB
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. What other Klipsch speakers did you see at the show? I am going tomorrow and would like a heads-up. Thanks
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. @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.
  20. 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
  21. @willlandLOL thanks for repeating me pretty much word for word. 😄
