  1. Two floor speakers. Good condition. Both Signed. One speaker has a scratch on the top but other than that they're in great condition. I live near Dallas. They're heavy and difficult/expensive to ship but if you're within a few hours drive of Dallas I'll certainly meet you half way.I know nothing about them but I contacted a pro who said "If those are in great condition those would be worth $2000 for the pair. At least that much."If you make an offer close to that - they're yours.- Jason
  2. http://www.ebay.com/itm/klipsch-la-scala-speakers-3-/262822286721?hash=item3d316dd581:g:CkkAAOSwopRYiCMa No affiliation but a great deal for someone in Illinois!
  3. Looking for one pair only of any of the four styles above. The must-haves: Any finish except black; Cabinets must be in excellent condition; Seller must be wiling to cooperate with my mover/shipper; No "industrial" cabinets, i.e., having the capped corners and handles; Internals in operating condition. Less important - my preference is to have the later, fabric-covered uppers if in the cases of LaScalas and K-horns. I will be doing a road trip in early January, and willing to go out of my way to see the right equipment. Route will take me from Upstate NY, over to Indiana, then to Mississippi, then on to Central Florida, then returning to Western NY. Also, I am near the Canadian border and, upon return, can make a subsequent trip to the lower Ontario region. It seems that many of you are located in the Southwest and West Coast. If you are not on the route described above I'd like to see what you have by way of high quality pictures. Cash is in-hand, and I'm willing to "pay-up" for the right pair of speakers.
  4. I've been browsing this site quite a bit lately but need some specific advice/opinion on a center channel set up. I am helping my dad look into some upgrades/additions to the home theater system. He currently has the original La Scala's that are in perfect condition and sound great. Last year He got a new receiver, a Yamaha Aventage RX-A1060 to power the system. He has an old, middle of the road Kenwood 5.1 system (not sure of model) sitting around collecting dust so we took the center channel from this and hooked it up to his current system. It does the job and is better than not having a center channel at all, but as you can imagine, doesn't even begin to keep up with the La Scala's. To give you an idea of what it's being used for, this is setup is used 50% to watch sports, mainly football, about 30% to watch movies and about 20% to listen to music. I'm anticipating that more music will be played on this in the near future though. In the future, this system may or may not be expanded upon further. He may be adding rear reference speakers and a sub to go full 5.1, but right now we both feel that a pair of La Scala's along with a solid center channel will be more than sufficient for its current use. I understand that if money was not in the equation, we should be looking at some of the nicest center channel's that Klipsch offers to pair with the La Scala's. Unfortunately that's not in the plan/budget. We are looking at the RC-62 II center channel and the RP-250C. They are both on sale right now and are very similar in price. By looking at these two speakers, I understand that the system won't be hitting its full potential, but I think it will be a good compromise between upgrading from the old Kenwood and breaking the bank with a higher end model. The question is, Is there a substantial difference between the two? Is the RC-62 clearly better and a no-brainer in this situation, or will the difference be negligible? The reason this is even an issue is that the TV is in a built in entertainment center that isn't going anywhere, and within that the tv is on an oak riser to get it to eye level. The RC-62 is just a little bit too big to fit under this riser, while the RP250 will fit just fine. The price in this instance isn't a big deal, they're both in the same price range, but I see that the RC-62 is a good amount more expensive at regular price. If we went with the RC-62, the options are to put it on top of the entertainment center, (which is roughly 5' high so I'm not sure if the angle would make a difference when we're sitting just 10' in front of the tv on a couch), or we could actually use the RC-62 itself as a tv riser instead of trying to fit it under the oak riser we currently have (The question within a question, Is it ok to place the tv directly onto one of these center channel's and use it as a riser? Wasn't sure if you get vibration up into the TV or mess with the speaker at all if this was done.). Neither one is a deal breaker, but the RP-250C will fit in the current set up with any problems, so that is a major perk. Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to make sure there is a full understanding of the setup and what it's being used for, the fitment issues are kind of unique and are the basis for this whole issue.
  5. I have some mid-range harshness in my La Scalas, which I know is a common complaint. I have been researching new speakers but am also wondering if a change/upgrade to my LSs would make a difference. I came across the daves fastlane site and their fastrac horns. Has anyone put these in La Scalas? And, if so, what difference did you hear? Also, I have Crites CT-125 tweeters and 4500 crossovers in my La Scalas. Thanks
  6. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/31/arts/music/london-listening-clubs-spiritland.html?rref=collection%2Fspotlightcollection%2FEditors’ Picks&action=click&contentCollection=Theater&module=Collection&region=Marginalia&src=me&version=spotlight&pgtype=article Hard to imagine anything much more favorable than this. Not a review at all, a detailed article about a trend towards audiophile listening cafes LS are repeatedly represented as the best of the best. Nice. Pic at the top of the article shows something that looks a lot like a set of DBB Corns. I wonder if these guys have ever heard a set of custom updated Klipschorns? So is the world finally catching up to the 2-Channel Forum?
  7. I really should stop looking for Klipsch on CL! http://denver.craigslist.org/ele/5833706600.html no affil.
  8. From ad: $1600 for the pair. If you know speakers you know Klipsch La Scalas Awesome condition. Sound is amazing. http://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/ele/5836010878.html No affiliation. Look to be in decent shape.
  9. Hey all, We have been quite pleased with the overwhelming success of the limited run of 70th Anniversary edition Heresy and Klipschorns. So much so that I've been told to ask you all about your thoughts on possible future "custom" Heritage speakers. We're talking strictly cosmetics here - finishes and grilles. What finish / grille combo(s) would you love to see and be interested in for the Khorn / Heresy III / Cornwall III / La Scala II? I'll be compiling this thread and handing it over to key decision makers sometime soon. We are just gauging interest for now, so let's hear it! Oh yeah, these of course would be built in Hope just like always. Thanks!
  10. Pair of La Scala's located in the Boise Idaho area. https://boise.craigslist.org/ele/5784933327.html Not Affiliated
  11. So I got lucky. There was an online auction where a listing said "Klipsch La Scala" but showed pictures of some old Yamaha PA speakers worth next to nothing. I knew nothing about Klipsch speakers or La Scalas except that they can be worth some money. I bid on them and won. $400. The company said the listing was wrong and let me chose between the La Scalas and the Yamahas, so obviously I picked the La Scalas. They are in generally good shape, just some scratching to the finish. I have cleaned them up some, they wreaked of nicotine. I was directed here from Audiokarma. So far I have found out I have probably joined a cult. Also that my La Scala are industrial and they have the AL-3 crossover. Now I want to know more. I can get more pictures if necessary. I'd love more specs. What's the difference between the industrial and the home version? Was $400 a good price? What have I gotten myself into??
  12. Last Friday and Saturday, I drove 1,030 mile round trip to pick up a pair of refurbished La Scalas from Mathews. Left around 10:00 a.m. on Friday morning. First stop was U-Haul to rent a package of furniture moving pads. Two day rental was $10.00 plus tax. It's not a bad deal all things considered. Didn't have any old blankets or comforters as a big load of them went to Goodwill just a month ago. Decided to take the southern route, Cinci to Louisville then up to St. Louis and across to Columbia. Wasn't a bad drive but after 8 hours I was a little road crazed upon arriving at Matthew's house. He sensed my dazed condition and provide a nice cup of coffee and some tunes. Love the way the La Scalas sounded through his wall of tube goodness. Just magical. Spent the night in Mt. Vernon, Illinois, 3 hours east of Columbia. Driving through St. Louis twice in one day was not well thought out on my part. Rained both times. Traffic was heavy. Typical stuff. Here are some pictures of loading the speakers: La Scalas in the CRV: Proud new La Scala papa: All bundled up and ready to go Home, unscathed, in the garage: On temporary duty in the family room waiting for the music room to get painted Sounding great.... Glad I had the opportunity to meet Matt. What a nice guy! Listening to these beauties right now. So happy I pulled the trigger and bought this wonderful looking and sounding pair of speakers. Mark

  16. From ad: I am selling a pair of Klipsch La Scala speakers in pretty much mint condition.

  20. I tried my best to purchase Matt's La Scalas but the distance made it tough (I'm in Montgomery, AL) and by the time I figured out my pony express they were gone. But alas... the wife and I were headed to Atlanta for dinner and a show this past weekend and on a whim I thought... I should check the Atlanta Criagslist! LOL Found a nice original pair from a gentlemen in Marietta (see my post in alerts for his Chorus he has for sale). I'm not sure of the year yet... if they are like the Heresy date code, I think these are 1980 or 1981. They are all original with a couple of dings and scratches but darn nice for their age. Left our hotel Sunday morning in downtown Atlanta and went and picked them up. It's a 3 hour drive home with a good chance of rain so moving blankets and a tarp were in order. Made it home just in time to beat the rain. I plan to rebuild the crossovers but they sure sound great as is!! I loved my Heresies but the La Scala? WOW. Very nice. I'm a happy guy! I'm driving these with an M-504 Onkyo Integra right now. not sure which system will eventually be "the one" but for now this will work. My room is almost 700 sq ft as it used to be the garage so I have plenty of room to open them up. I have a pair of Cerwin Vega CL-215's running in the rear of the room as well. The La Scalas are so sensitive, you can barely here the CV's! LOL This is a good thing in my book as they just add a little bottom end to the room with their dual 15's.
  21. I'm just asking for someone's opinion on the value of two brand new 1970s La Scalas still in their original shipping boxes. I'm undecided whether to sell them and need some guidance. I picked them up at the factory in Hope Arkansas about 40 years ago and they've been kept in storage since then. I believe the cabinets are unfinished birch.
  22. There's a pair of Classic RF-7 speakers for sale in my area, with factory-upgraded crossovers. I'm interested but not finding much info on them. Can anyone tell me: - How do Classic RF-7's compare with RF-7II's sonically? - Are Classic RF-7's better for 2-channel music or 5.1 home theater? What types of music or movies are they best suited for? (my AVR is a Yamaha A-3000, my 2-channel amps are Odyssey Stratos Monos) - When would you choose La Scala's over Classic RF-7's or RF-7II's? Thanks in advance for enabling my latest obsession...
