    So they are an all new mid horn I take it? Wow...$6,000 MSRP. I guess that can help pay for retooling a mid horn....if that's what they did. I'm sure they will sound great.

    $3K each...already exceeds the total of what I payed for 6 pre-owned Chorus II's. Apples to oranges, I know. Oh well, knew they would not come cheap. I really do hope they are 6X better. Not that I have faith in that. Just that it would really be something.

     

    Holding out for more info and reviews on the new midrange. That was the one thing that to me was in dire need of an update. 

     

    My local Certified Klipsch Heritage  Dealer was one of the first in the country to have set up in the showroom the AK6 Klipschorn. (The La Scala AL5 were my favs.) I may just get a chance to listen soon after Rocky Mountain.

    Hey 314, what mods did you do to your C2's?

    Just curious as I got a pair a few months ago. I have to get them to NY before I can listen and see what needs doing. I saw your SET12 mention but can't find anything beside the Audiogon posts. I don't think I can spend $$$ but maybe if I got some background I'd get pointed in the right direction. 

    BTW, I recapped my RB5's via Crites.

     

    I don't understand. Tell me if I am wrong here. So you don't have them set up where you can listen to them, and don't know how they sound, but you want to modify them? Why?

  3. Which Home Theater?

    I have not posted in this thread before, so I though why not now.

     

    The dedicated theater room is currently getting a back wall makeover so here is a pic taken showing the recent front wall makeover. I run JBL in there

    The Klipsch room is a non-dedicated all purpose space. Ready for anything.

  4. Today I got all the wood I needed for my next project. A custom made audio equipment rack. This one will go in the JBL theater room. It will not be like the last 2 racks I made that are sandwiched between Klipsch Chorus II's. I am planning for something a bit more toward the high end furniture look with this build. 60" height 25" width 20"depth with casters. 7 shelves plus the top.

  5. 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. They just will not fit. I barely shoehorn 5 Chorus II's now.

    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.


  8. 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.

  10. 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.
