  1. Hey hanksjim1, Thanks for posting this, but it looks like you put up the wrong link: https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/ele/d/portland-vintage-receivers-tuners/7341757694.html I think this is what you want: https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/ele/d/beaverton-trade-klipsch-chorus-walnut/7343094538.html --triceratops
  2. He decided to keep his speakers. Then you suggested he could have netted more by parting them out. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
  3. Randy, On the Klipsch forum we typically celebrate when someone decides to keep their Klipsch speakers instead of selling them. Instead you suggest that this owner shouldn't keep, but should dismantle an intact, vintage pair Klipsch speakers in order to part them out to sell them for maximum return. I'm confused. Is this the Klipsch forum or the Flipper forum?
  4. I think monastery policy comes from the Vatican school 😇 Isn't AutoCorrect great? 🤣
  5. If they are from 1975, these probably would have come with the original pie slice badges, usually in a plastic envelope stapled to the back of the cabinet. The idea was that owners might want to install the badges in mirror image position, or symmetrically, or centrally, or not at all. Some people never opened the envelope and don't even know what's in there. I have no idea if these Klipschorns have uninstalled badges, but if they do it's another plus.
  6. Chris, My hat is off to you! You are a true pillar of the Klipsch community, and I'm glad to see you're still around. triceratops
  7. Local pickup only depresses bidding, too.
  8. You know there was a reserve, right?
  9. Nobody bid and it's over!
  10. If he's right, Shiva's got better vision than me. The CF-4's that were posted previously did not have the faded numbers that these do. In any case, the one number shown does not match the Craig's List speakers and does not appear to be 1994. The ones on Craig's List were 1994. This auction closes in 5 minutes!
  11. Looking good! Nice score, SOJ!
  12. It looks like that left grill has some kind staining where the badge once was. Sometimes grilles get stashed in a less-pristine environment, when speakers are being run without them. But the speakers themselves were obviously well cared for--I wish I could snag these.
  13. Beautiful--thanks, Oicu812! Now the thread will live on after the ad is gone!
  14. Yeah, it was my failed attempt at converting a hi-fi amp into a guitar rig. Conrad Sundholm (Sunn amplifiers) did it successfully with Dynaco tube gear, but by using a Southwest Technical Products solid-state power amp kit, I bet on the wrong pony.
