  1. 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.

  2. 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.  

  3. 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.   

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. I'm glad I pulled the trigger on my Forte IV in February...   I used my Heresy III for almost 4 years and got only $300 less than what I paid for them, because I bought them right before they went up in price. They were MSRP of $2000, then went to $2598.....  I paid $1800  for the H3 so my trade in was better than expected, I actually benefited from the increase...   I hope the $500 jump in price doesn't keep one from looking at the IV, they are really a great speaker.
