  1. Enjoy !   I have had my Heresy III for about 4 months and love them.  They are the best audio purchase I've made in a long time, huge bang for the buck.   I've had more expensive and supposedly "better" speakers in this room but none have sounded as great as these do ....

  2. I've had a number of speakers,  several KEF, several PSB, Paradigm, B&W , and a few Klipch.   One speaker I regretted selling was the Klipsch CF 4.... that's probably when I heard a pair or Heresy III  I had to buy them.  Really enjoying them, will never sell them.   The fun per dollar ratio is off the chart.   


     Another speaker I miss was the PSB M2 Platinum monitor.  I will buy the first mint pair I come across, they were that good.  Never should have sold them, replaced them with Revel M106 which were nice but in hindsight the M2 was better.   

  3. I have had the Heresy III for three months and I have to say they are great speakers for the money.   40 watts of EL34 is plenty and they sound big and bold.   Not "polite" like my last few speakers.... which were fine , don't get me wrong but the H3 REALLY rock .    Love 'em


    I'm using a c-j Classic 2SE pre and Quicksilver mono amps but just for fun I connected the Heresy to a circa 1979 Technics 15 watt RX and they still sounded pretty good .....

  4. I am using a REL R305 which is older but sounds great with the Heresy III .  A little tricky to get it dialed in because the Klipsch are more sensitive than my last speakers .  Sounds great though.   You might even want to look at subs with an EQ , I am getting excellent results with the REL and a Velodyne SMS 1 ....

  5. Unlikely you will get it completely off.... my kg1s were missing the badge,  i "froze" the glue by holdi g a can of air duster upside down and gently scraped it off....  looks ok , i tried to touch it up with a sharpie    i would just cover the badge with electical tape

  6. Can't believe you have no interest....the CF line were one of my favorites.   I had a pair of CF 4.  Damn millenials...and their iPods...you should put them in the Boston CL and  us audio mart..  I have had good luck there.

  7. I just re-lamped and cleaned up a friends McIntosh C26.   It was his Dads and he had no idea really what it was.....So of course I had to put it in a system while I had it..... Sounded pretty good .....I was surprised how good.   I gave him a pair of speakers and and a small 60 watt amp and she lives again.   

  8. Spotify is great..... I use it mainly for casual listening, the sound quality is pretty good through my DAC.   Tons of music I would have never discovered.   I use Pandora free version through my BluRay player and thats not bad either through my DAC.   I still listen to FM ,.... and CDs  but the variety and convenience is hard to beat.   

  9. You're right Willand, there is something special about these speakers.    My son came home for the weekend and wanted to hear them with some of his music.....rap unfortunately.  We cranked 'em up and he was blown away.   I was blown away too.... Their sense of scale and impact is unlike anything I've ever owned.... they handle complex passages without even breaking a sweat.  I was nervous about how they would sound in this room, but they are the perfect size .   They are well balanced and there is not one hint of harshness.  In fact they are smooth compared to some metal domes I've owned.    Their best attribute is they never loose their composure even at higher volumes.  In fact they are so clear that I can see where you could play them at dangerous levels and not realize really how loud it is.    I almost bought another pair of monitors and I'm glad I chose these instead.  Huge value for the money.

  10. I am thoroughly enjoying these Heresys....  They are such a departure from every other speaker I've owned , including Klipsch CF 4.....  They are an enigma....they are a  60 year old design,  but they do something quite right....  they make music...... I'm using a conrad johnson Classic 2 SE preamp and a pair of Quicksilver Mid Mono amps.   These speakers convey the dynamics and impact of live music like no other speaker I've owned. 

  11. My Heresys only took a week so hopefully you'll see them soon..... They are well worth the wait.   The fit and finish is excellent, beautiful matched veneer.   I've only got a few hours on them but they sound great.    Big , dynamic sound  thats the closest to live than I've ever had in my living room..... you will like.....  They are fun to listen to and will put a smile on your face when you crank em up

  12. I just took delivery of my new Heresy lll in Cherry finish.....   the fit and finish, veneer matching and overall eye appeal is higher than expected.    I haven't really spent much time listening but they sound great so far.    These little guys rock, the bass isnt the deepest but it has really good pitch definition and with my REL 305 it's awesome......  a bass guitar sounds like a bass guitar , a kick drum has kick.

  13. Thanks for the reply, already pulled the trigger......  was just wondering.... I demo'd them at Audio Visual Thereapy in Nashua NH .  They to my knowledge are the only Heritage dealer within close proximity.   John and Mark are great guys to deal with,  I would encourage anyone to visit them, great place and great service.   They had a pair of Heresy Capitol in blonde cherry, they were beautiful and I almost took them home.... but I just couldnt justify the $500 + premium over standard finishes.   Plus I really like the standard cherry, plus the PWK badge over the capitol logo.   

  14. I had a pair of CF 4 when they came out and they were awesome speakers.  Unfortunately they were way too big for my listening room, so as much as I liked them they were just huge.  Anyway , shortly thereafter I switched to several stand mounted monitors and a sub . All which were very good , but none had the sense of scale and weight of those CF 4 ....... I have a great pair of Quicksilver amps that I love so I started looking at higher efficiency speakers to get the most out of them and thats when I decided to look at the Heresys.   They checked off all the boxes for me, compact,  easy to drive , sealed cabinet, can go close to the wall.   So I demo' d a pair last week and ordered a pair.    It was weird listening to them without a sub,  they really drop off like a rock around 60 hz ,  but with a good sub they rock.  Can't wait.   

  15. There are some good deals on the CJ Classic preamps.....  I have a Classic 2 SE and it sounds phenomenal......yeah it has zero features but if you can live with out balance or remote it is a real sleeper.   My DAC and streamer have remote volume so its not an issue for me.  But I have no problem getting up to adjust the volume.....it sounds that good i dont even care
