  1. I noticed that with my PSB M2, they got darker over time.   Those are one speaker I regret selling.  Such a great speaker..... I hope to find another pair someday.....   I expect my Cherry Forte IV to get a little darker... hopefully not too much.   I have owned mostly dark wood speakers and these were a nice change of scenery.  They are really beautiful...  nice grain pattern.   They did a great job matching the veneer....  hard to tell the two speakers apart.  

  2. I have a pair of Klipsch HP 3 and I love them.  Sometimes it is a good change of pace to fire them up every now and then.  Also have a pair of Grado RS2e and enjoy them as well. 

    But as Shakey mentioned it’s not very comfortable for extended listening....but  it’s nice to be able to “disconnect “ and block out the outside world for a while.   


  3. My Fortes sounded good out of the box, bass was a little wooly for lack of a better word.   Ran them for a few days and began to question the age of the tubes on my amp.  They are old and have been my back up.   So I swapped out a new pair of KT 77.  

    After repositioning them and a Jack and Coke , things improved 


    Was it the new tubes?  Putting them closer to the wall which to me was counter to what I expected 


    Was it the Jack and Coke?  Maybe, who knows but I have run them many many hours in the past two weeks and whether it was my ears adapting, placement , tube variety/weak tube?    A combination of them all?  Not sure but I have never been so happy with how my system sounds. 

  4. It’s hard NOT to say how awesome they are ...   hopefully others will chime in soon saying they received a pair.    I counted and this is my  13th pair of speakers since I was about 15.

      My bucket list speaker I would have to say is LaScala but even if that dream comes true some day I will keep these Forte

    Until you upgrade something else in the system. Or perhaps if you reposition them? In the past I have gone months thinking I had the perfect speaker location only to move them a little and find out I was wrong.



    If I had the room I probably would have bought Cornwalls....   but that will change soon so you never know....



  6. I have always been a little skeptical about electronics break in time.    I agree with others that it is more about acclimating to the new speaker.  Although with the treated textile cloth surround on Klipsch woofers, I do tend to believe there is some break in for it to be compliant but I think I’m long past that.   

    Once I got the speakers positioned correctly the bass was great.  The bass is tight and deep , really no need for a sub.    I think they sound as good they can at this point.
