  1. "Klipsch is the #1 premium speaker brand in the United States with over 25% total market share in the home audio category. Klipsch is the #1 premium speaker brand in Canada with over 35% total market share in the home audio category...." https://investors.voxxintl.com/static-files/37d349d2-67fb-4b9f-8512-b2dcbdb15714
  2. Just use one song. An audiophile recording of Long After You're Gone by Chris Jones.
  3. Looks like Benton, Illinois https://carbondale.craigslist.org/ele/d/benton-klipsch-lascalas/6911891367.html no affiliation
  4. https://maine.craigslist.org/ele/d/saco-1967-klipsch-heresy-upgrades/6882093645.html I've no affiliation. These could have been posted earlier but a quick search did not show it. Might be worth a trip if in the upper northeast.
  5. Stock price hit a one year low yesterday of $3.50 a share and share price has declined 37% in the past year during a time of near unprecedented prosperity for the US business community. VOXX now has a market cap of $84 million. The stock hit an intraday high of $6.25 on July 10, 2018.
  6. I would like to see Klipsch prosper and for it to have a corporate parent capable of providing the resources to swim in a crowded lake. However, I continue to be baffled at the lack of retail presence in major population centers. Granted, a lot of product seems to be sold via guerrilla marketing and/or by heavily discounted mail order. Maybe that is by design.
  7. Following another VOXX International Corporation poor quarterly performance, and its stock price down sharply, some analysts recently questioned if it's time to consider liquidating the company and selling off profitable assets as the breakup value could exceed the current $3.60 share price. This is quite the quarterly earnings transcript. Would urge you to read it all. What happens on Wall Street can impact what happens in Hope, like it or not. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/edited-transcript-voxx-earnings-conference-011420171.html
  8. believe we are talking about the same person for repair options LOL.
  9. A plate amp will power the sub box, but additional amplification and crossovers will be required for the external speakers and the audio control pod system will not function. If it were me and I was set on that system (they are getting harder and harder to find) I would spring to have it repaired or acquire another one. Most of the autopsies on these traced the failure to bad caps, cooked resistors or a combination thereof and the occasional failed power transformer. If you opt for a plate amp solution to keep the sub, you are free to pick and choose your other components.
  10. There is a reliable vendor on eBay with whom I have no connection who had offered a repair service for these. He can be found by searching for stpeteshepherd . His pricing is average, but he has 100% feedback for more than 3,000 transactions. The issue with the early 2.1 failures and later, the 4.1, was heat. But it is still some of the best sound you can get for that amount of money. I have a 14 year old 2.1 at home that has never missed a beat and I have another one that is fried.
  11. Any thoughts on what the recent downward slope in Voxx stock is all about?
  12. Far too much of it available to be the result of recurring or persistent QC issues. Seems more like a guerilla marketing strategy to expand the customer base with a more affordable version of the product. Like "Psssst - I know a guy who has 'em for half price. Here's his number but ya can't tell anybody...."
  13. Just an observation. There seems to be a near endless supply of B stock available. Is Hope quality control really that rigid or is product that doesn't sell at retail just being rebranded and sold out of a warehouse somewhere at half price just to move it? I have B stock H3 and I feel fortunate to have gotten it for the price I paid. Given the obvious pressure on Voxx to cut costs while its stock keeps falling - why would you continue a design or manufacturing process that results in oodles of a supposed cosmetically imperfect product?
  14. If I'm not mistaken Klipsch sued Monoprice a few years ago: patent infringement, trade dress infringement, unfair competition and copyright infringement. I assume some sort of amicable resolution was achieved. https://www.cnet.com/news/klipsch-monoprice-settle-patent-dispute-over-speakers/
