  1. Thanks. I chatted with him already and he sent me a bunch more pictures. Unfortunately, the more detailed pictures revealed some cosmetic flaws that don't pass the bar for me.
  2. Hi All, I'm looking for a pair of Icon WB-14 speakers (https://www.klipsch.com/products/wb-14-bookshelf-speaker) in very good to excellent condition, preferably in Espresso finish but I'll probably take Cabernet if the condition is great. Thanks.
  3. OK, OK. I have one small change to make once my latest purchase arrives. No, it's not more Palladiums. 🙂 One I get that in place I'll post pics to the "Lets see YOUR Home Theater" thread in the Home Theater forum and post a link to the entry back here.
  4. Ha, someone else who uses P-37F as surrounds. I'm using them as rear surrounds. I had to stick with P-27S for the side surround because of the narrow width of my room. I'm also using P-17B for front and rear heights for immersive surround. PDellisanti - Would you take KLF-30 in mahogany finish in trade? 😁

    Palladium set on eBay

    Listing ended. That was fast.
  6. It's this listing, right? https://www.ebay.com/itm/153447171623 It's been on eBay for a long time. I guess he doesn't realized how overpriced those are.
  7. The only Palladiums I've seen come up for sale in the US in a while. Maybe the seller would consider breaking up the set. https://www.ebay.com/itm/183838319904 "Klipsch Palladium Luxury Zebra Wood Speaker Set. Set includes 1 P27-C center speaker in expresso color, 2 P312-W subwoofers in natural finish, 2 P39-F tower speakers in natural finish, and 2 P27-S surround speakers in natural finish. The set is in very good used condition with one tower and 2 subwoofers in original packaging. The one exception to the very good condition is the unboxed P39-F has a tweeter in need of repair, all else is very good condition with minor surface blemishes."
  8. Not mine. https://www.ebay.com/itm/183838319904 "Klipsch Palladium Luxury Zebra Wood Speaker Set.

  9. The Palladium speakers (and subsequent speakers using the technology) have compression driver tweeters that have feature a linear travel suspension. It's not that LTS tweeters are not used as compression drivers. This page has an exploded view picture: https://www.klipsch.com/products/r-51m-5-1-home-theater-system. Unfortunately, it's unlabeled and there are really no details in description.
  10. You picked a bad time to get into Palladiums. They are getting very tough to find. I had to get the last pair to finish my setup from Scotland. Almost everything on HiFi Shark is in Europe. I guess Palladiums were more popular there then in the US. https://www.hifishark.com/search?q=klipsch+palladium
  11. There is one for sale on eBay in Espresso: https://www.ebay.com/itm/312587584353. Has some scratches.
  12. I hope that Windows XP machine is not connected to the network. XP went out of support five years ago. 😨
  13. That's $3898 right now. A little more that I wanted to pay but beggars can't be choosers.
  14. I found a pair of P-37F but I had to get them from Scotland. 😲 Luckily, the air freight shipping wasn't too bad. Can't wait until they get here. For some reason the listing is still up: https://www.audioemotion.co.uk/klipsch-p-37f-floorstanding-loudspeaker---preowned-17682-p.asp.
  15. If you are going to consider the Academy for a center, if possible audition it first. I owned one and had it as a center with original Fortes. I did not find it to be a sonic match at all (despite Klipsch marketing it as such). From the moment I started using it, I was aware of the sound character change in the center as sounds panned across the front. It was very disconcerting and was a constant distraction. Soon after I got it I went back to the dealer and made a deal to trade it in for a single Heresy II. I have been happy with that decision ever since. I now have KLF-30s where those Forte used to be and the Heresy works well as a center with those too. The Academy is not a bad speaker but in my opinion it's no match for the 3-way Heritage/Forte family/Legend series speakers. It sounds much more like a kg series speaker. If you have to have a horizontal center I would think the KLF-C7 might be a closer match due to the larger horn and higher sensitivity for a 2-way speaker. But I haven't had a chance to hear it.
