  1. Thanks. I agree but the RB-75’s are rarely found affordable for me.
  2. Thanks for your input, sir. While on the subject, what would be a proper ranking in satisfaction for these bookshelf speakers? Something like this? RB-75 > RB-5 (I or II) > RB-35 > RB-81 (I or II)
  3. Thanks, Bill. I think I will go ahead with the purchase. I used to own a pair of RB-81 II's and kind of miss them. However, I can't pay their price today. I'm assuming the following ranking of satisfaction is somewhat accurate? RB-75 > RB-5 (I or II) > RB-35 > RB-81 (I or II) Dan.
  4. Hello and thanks. I think the RB-75's prove elusive both literally and financially for me. I did read that these 35's seem more like the 81's. I'll go ahead and take this affordable chance, especially since the finish looks nice. There is a pair of RB-5's on ebay. What do you think of those? 🙂
  5. Hello, all, including any disinterested folk. I think I'm going to purchase a pair of light cherry RB-35's soon. I would like to know if any of you own/have used these before in your two-channel setup or just for home theater? Thanks in advance for replies. Much obliged.
  6. Until recently, I had forgotten some of old Phil's "famous" remarks. On the subject of marriage: "When a man opens the car door for his wife, it's either a new car or a new wife." 😀
  7. . . . and it’s gone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. They are posted again and still no additional pics. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. BTW . . Did I mention that I just happened upon a pair of Black Chorus II speakers? Gotta thank FB and my hungry eyes for that one. My search is over! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Well, I finally found a pair of Forte I's but NOT black. They are a "Lacquered Oak" according to the one remaining sticker behind one of them. [emoji846]
  11. I think they are no longer for sale. Maybe someone got to them already. 😐
  12. Could someone who is familiar with the RB-75's confirm if that's what is visible here in this For Sale post in FB? I messaged the seller but he won't sell them separately from the pack. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1460850507587776/?ref=search&referral_code=marketplace_search I can't post the images from here. 😕
  13. At the risk of seeming redundant, I found this interesting subject about the future of personal sound. Think of the possibilities! I could use this while working when historically I would not be allowed via headphones or speaker. https://apnews.com/article/new-tech-device-sound-beaming-noveto-38327ae5fe116080a5eaf2374eb0f5c8
  14. Anyone interested in this pair of limited edition Forte III's? Not my listing nor am I associated in any way to the seller. https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/ele/d/dallas-speakers-klipsch-heritage-forte/7191327160.html
  15. The Stars are going to the Stanley Cup Finals!!!
  16. I almost had a pair of practically pristine black Forte II’s (fleabay). But I was mistaken as their posterior tags were labeled “Oak Oil”. Imagine the heresy of such discovery!
  17. Ok, . . . uh . . . they DON’T have to be black. Really. Tough crowd.
  18. Hi everyone. If anybody has the knows the whereabouts regarding a nice looking and wonderful sounding pair of Forte I's (or II's) in Black, then I would be interested in acquisition. Must be in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and within 4 hours drive (preferably less than) of DFW. Is this too much to ask I ask?
  19. How about these links for a reference? I believe the one I used to own (though non-working) was built in 1948. However, I'm not sure, if that's not mid-century, what is? The style is early twentieth century, I suppose. http://www.myvintagetv.com/magnavox_windsor.htm https://magnavoxhistory.com/portfolio/1948-record-playerradio/ 🤨
  20. Texas born and raised. South plains farm land, northeast of Lubbock. Currently reside in Garland, but have moved about since the 80's to Austin, Houston, Dallas, Plano, Amarillo, Rockwall, etc.
  21. Sorry, but I can't post these images yet. However, due to the seller's asking price, I think this link will be here awhile. https://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/ele/d/carrollton-antique-vintage-magnavox/7092527572.html
  22. Now, I'm not sure if any purists are going to be offended for not being able to "unsee" the following link. Clink at your own risk. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/899877827094816/ 😬
  23. Ok, nothing left to sell. I wish to thank all who participated (sniffle). It's been real swell.
