  1. There's no reason that he can't both answer here now and do the same Q&A for the livestream audience. 🙂
  2. I was present at the drawing for a pair of Klipschorn AK6 that the Museum did a while back similar to this, which I had entered. The drawing was held at the PWK Birthday Bash, two years ago if I'm remembering correctly. There were no ticket numbers assigned beforehand for that contest either. However, I saw how they generated the slips of paper (one per entry purchased per person) that went into the large bowl for selecting the winner. Everything I saw was on the up and up. I believe @Schu won that pair.
  3. They should have some of us who have heard the new La Scala on the livestream to give our opinion. Roy knows that I'd give a glowing review. 😁
  4. As I mentioned in my coverage of the last Chief Bonehead class, Roy said that one of the reasons that the redesign of the was done in a way that didn't require changes to the cabinets was to allow an upgrade. Klipsch has a tradition of providing Heritage upgrade kits where possible. The Heresy II to III kit and the Forte III to IV kit are examples. I assume there will be a delay between ramping up the new speaker production and the introduction of the upgrade kit. I am curious to know what that delay will be.
  5. I'd like to know the estimated timetable for the release of the upgrade kits for La Scala AL5 and Klipschorn AK6 owners.
  6. At the Chief Bonehead class on the new La Scala back in March, I believe Roy said that the DSP crossover units for the La Scala AL6/Klipschorn AK7 will have both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) inputs and outputs just like the DSP for the Jubilee. Of course, confirming this with Roy would be a good idea.
  7. There should be an upgrade kit coming for La Scala AL5 and Klipschorn AK6 owners. I'll be first in line for it.
  8. I got an email. Perhaps they are giving museum members first access. @Travis In Austin or @Chief bonehead, are we allowed to share the details here yet?
  9. I'm using six KI-102-SMA-II as Atmos speakers for my Jubilee, modified Belle, La Scala 5.0 ground layer. They work really well and have the advantage of being really easy to mount and point toward the listening position when mounted using the optional SB-102 U-bracket.
  10. Do you mean oak lacquer finish? The original poster was asking about what people used on oiled finishes so I assumed you were talking about the same.
  11. As @billybob mentioned, if you can wait, there are Heritage Horn-loaded Vented System subwoofers coming.
  12. Klipsch specifically mentioned not using products that contain wax on oiled wood finishes in the manuals from that era. As I mention in the document, you can use those products with pleasing results, but you will no longer have an oiled wood finish appearance. It's not what one should use if maintaining the original oiled wood appearance is the goal.
  13. Danish Oil contains varnish. It polymerizes and essentially creates a sealed finish. So, it will alter the appearance and type of finish. It's a valid choice if that is what is desired. However, it's not what one should use if maintaining the original oiled wood appearance is the goal.
  14. Yes, it was disappointing and contemplating sending them back was no fun. Thankfully, the Trade Secret furniture polish saved the day.
  15. If these are still unfinished plywood as they came from the factory, then it depends on what you intend to do. If you want to keep them in "raw" (unfinished) condition, then just dust them. Putting anything on them will cause it to soak into the wood. However, applying a finish of some kind will protect the wood, especially from getting stains. You can apply almost any finish with or without staining them first - lacquer, polyurethane, varnish, etc. I presume you could even apply furniture oil to the plywood to create an oiled finish, although I don't know how even the absorption of the oil would be on the edges since there is glue between the layers of the plywood. However, most people who purchased speakers with raw plywood usually applied a sealed finish like poly, lacquer, etc.
