  1. Thats awesome! What better pedigree for a classic speaker than that?
  2. How sick is it that I tried to find that ad and buy those? I just got a pair of IVs three months ago. I could certainly have seen those in another room ...... Hopefully they went to a good , loving home.
  3. I agree on the Cherry. Mine were really light. I kind of liked them, having always had dark finishes like Walnut. They are three months old and are getting that nice grain contrast. They are darker yes but still have a natural look as opposed to stained which was like my Heresy III. I much prefer the natural Cherry. walnut is beautiful too. It is a tough choice. I was all ready to get Distressed Oak but I didn’t really like it in person. Black and the new grilles are a sharp contrast too. Tough decision . I’m glad I went with Cherry.
  4. Heritage speakers are reliable, but the new 10 year warranty has a lot of value to me. Plus I'm OCD when it comes to condition so buying new meant no disappointment. I used to work for a company that would open brand new stuff that was not selling and sell it as B stock. So sometimes you do get a true open box unit. Sometimes you got something that saw 6 months or a year of use and was repaired and reboxxed....you never know
  5. Enjoy. !!! I am loving mine. Probably the best money ever spent on audio. They are awesome. I am also running my subs rolled off at 45 Hz and a steep slope via my Velodyne SMS 1 . The bass is so good with the Forte IV that a sub really isn't necessary in the appropriate sized room. I use the sub when playing movies mostly.
  6. That’s awesome !!!! You will love them I’m sure. Lots of great info and a great community here. Enjoy
  7. I’m in our delivery van, about 15 away from Westford.....so tempted
  8. Craigslist boston. WESTFORD MA. Look mint, if I didn't just buy my girlfriend a dog, these would have followed me home instead
  9. Those look tiny in front of the Jubilee.... That finish makes for a very cool looking speaker. Enjoy !!!
  10. Hope you end up dialing them into your liking.... I had to experiment a little with placement but it paid off.
  11. I picked up a pair of Heresy II oiled oak for my brother a year or so back. They were beautiful, obviously loved their whole life. only bad part, no serial number tags.... so I guess they are a matched pair. I got a good price and he loves them so I wasn’t so hung up about their provenance They appear to be stock and sound great. However, if buying new, I would want the Heresy IV.... not a copy of an original Heresy
  12. I miss my Heresy III... they were a great speaker no doubt. As I posted earlier I wasn’t even looking for a new speaker (lie) but after hearing the Heresy IV and Cornwall IV and also hearing the Forte IV was voiced similarly I bought the Forte IV sight unseen. Best money I have ever spent on audio... also the most spent, but worth every penny. You will love them.
  13. I don't currently have my Vault's analog out connected but I think I just may run analog out to my preamp.... I used the analog outs when I had Tidal. Using Qobuz and RP mainly when streaming. My DAC recognizes the MQA Radio Paradise stream as " 88.2k" can anyone explain why? It identifies the "CD" quality stream on RP as 44.1.
  14. Don’t get me wrong, would have loved to get CW IV... could easily justify the $1500 difference but I am absolutely loving my Forte IV . They are the perfect size and sound pretty good in their own right.
  15. I like RP. It has turned me on to a lot of great music
  16. I like the blue... I like the orange too...tough choice, I would get a spare pair to have both of those colors....
  17. welcome. This is a much friendlier place ! I picked up a pair of Heresy II for my brother last year. They were really nice, oiled oak. I paid $500 but up here in New England thats actually not bad. I owned Heresy III and really liked them, should be good deals on those. I actually went to listen to Heresy IV to hear the difference and ended up buying Forte IV. If not for a generous trade in I would have kept them....
  18. The Cornwall IV are pretty awesome.... you should listen to them...
  19. Very sorry to hear this , please accept my condolences. I just spoke to him a week or two back about a Heresy project he was working on. Sorry for your loss, he was a good guy.
  20. They definitely look nice. Each one is a little different which adds to the cool factor
  21. Prices are crazy up here in NE......I bought my brother a really nice pair of Heresy II for $500 a year or so back and I thought it was fair considering what some of the asking prices are here in Boston.
  22. Basically anything Quicksilver is built like a tank and sounds good. Ever use that amp with Forte ?
