  1. I love these speakers !!!, I'm sitting here listening at midnight.....  happens a lot lately.   I have used three different preamps in my system so far and I have never had a speaker that was so revealing of changes upstream. I think that's a good thing.  I am a firm believer that many speakers can and will sound better as the quality of electronics ramps up.   I am hoping that 300b will be my last amp,  I am never going back to low efficiency speakers so I'm sure it will serve me well til I'm dead....

  2. I have owned the Forte IV since February...   Fido and I were amongst the first owners of these awesome speakers .  They are the best speakers I've ever owned , and I have owned several decent ones over the years.   I have been running a pair of Quicksilver 40 watt mono amps and it is such a great match.... so you don't have to break the bank to be rewarded with realistic , true to life sound.


    I wasn't even looking to purchase new speakers.  I had a pair of Heresy III, a fine speaker but made the mistake of listening to the Heresy IV while buying my daughter a sound bar .


    I also listened to the Forte III and almost bought them but I got a little advance notice that the Forte IV would be out soon and thats what I ended up with.  It was worth the wait and the premium over the III.

  3. I'm glad I bought my Forte IV in February... ...   were they worth 3k plus my trade?  Absolutely.   $4500 isn't chump change,  but its not unrealistic for a good speaker.    I love them but not sure if they are worth $5748...... they are great but now the Forte is priced similarly to Volti Razz ,  a better speaker by many accounts.  


    I think Klipsch will lose a lot of potential Heresy, Forte , and Cornwall customers .   Those three speakers were within reach for many folks,   now not so much.   There will always be buyers for LaScala and K Horn, I doubt sales will suffer for those two.    I like the Heresy IV but am not convinced its worth $3700 and I'm sure many will agree.

  4. I still listen to FM a lot.  I have a Magnum Dynalab MD102 tuner and just picked up a really nice condition Fanfare FT 1a with remote for $200....


    sounds great ,  I’m going leave it in my main system for a little while 


    This is the last component needed for a complete 2nd system minus speakers.  

  5. Initially I thought I really liked the KT 77 but they seemed to lean toward too much bass in my system.  One red plated after 10 months...so I put my spare KT88 Gold Lion in, they have many hours but still sound great.   

  6. If you are patient you can find some really nice stuff on CL or US Audiomart...  if you can afford new Heresy you can probably find a pair of Forte III for a good price.


    I've had a pair of Forte IV since February and I am loving them.   I am all over New England for work, if I see a nice pair of Heritage in my travels, I will PM you.

  7. Tubes are consumables,  no doubt ...and when I get noise I root out the problem immediately to prevent damage to my babies....   I had a weird screechey , other worldly sound recently and it was a new driver tube.  Tube was only a few weeks old.    I first will clean all tube pins with 99.9 iso and sockets as well that often gets rid of the noise,  but any weird noises after that I replace tube in question

  8. I was running my Heresy IIi with a pair of 40 watt Quicksilver Mid Monos and it was a great match.  Plenty of power in my 15 x 17 room ....


    I gave my brother a pair of H2 and he was driving them with a 15 w Technics receiver .   

    they don’t need a lot of watts but the better the amp the more you will be rewarded
