  1. Dear all, Just to give an update... Finally my 1981 Cornwalls that I got from ebay are arrived. They came in extremely well packaged. They have travelled from US all the way down to here in the sandpit, almost half of the globe. Both are still in their original crossovers & drivers. Some scratches & dings on the veneer on both speaker but it's not so visible from seating position. I've been using 2-ch of RF62 for the last 6 years & these are my 1st Cornwalls ever. My set up are Denon 2809 receiver which goes through the VTA SP12 pre-amp & Latino's ST120 amp. Mostly I listen to jazz & classic using AppleTV (Flac), all using only 2-ch fronts. I placed those Cornwall right next to the wall on the side and around 60cm from the rear wall with toe-in about 45 deegrees to my listening position. Distance are around 3.5m between the CWs and 3m from each to my seating position. Compare to the RF62, at the same volume level & tone control set up, these Cornwall bring up more details, bass and wider sound stage. The bass is huge as to my taste and it's not boomy. The last two days i've been listening for at least 4-6 consecutive hours and it wasn't fatiguing. When i played Norah Jones' "Seven Year", the sounds of the hands on the strings can be heard in more details. Roberta Flack's voice was heard just like she sing up in front of me. The sound of Coltrane's sax also much more details & I could hear some of his breaths in between the passages. So far I love the way those 2 CWs sounding & I will do some upgrades on the crossover as well as the driver, but not in the near future. Thanks to all who gave me some helps on the info re: those "beasts". Warmest regards from the Sandpit, Jimmy PS: Herewith I attached pictures of the CWs.

  5. Hi guys, Just want to ask, if you have to choose between Cornwall I or II, which one you prefer & why? Is it true that the CW I is easier to work with because all drivers are mounted from the back while CW II is front mounted? Both seller said they are in good working condition, so no need to upgrade Caps/Xover anytime soon, but I will do the upgrade anyway. Cosmetically, the CW I has few dings here & there and does't seat on riser while the CW II is excellent (from the pictures). I'm in a position that can not audition both CWs. Any suggestions & advices much appreciated. Thanks, Jimmy
  6. Elijah Wood tweeted us last night with a picture of his Klipsch La Scala and the Klipsch Hobbit t-shirt! For those wondering, we don't pay for Elijah to use La Scalas. He's just a big fan who tweeted us one day about it. Apparently, he is a big-time audiophile. Check out the tubes!
  7. I have a few Klipsch KG speakers. I have been using them throughout my house. One 3.5 has a indentation on its cone. I prefer local pickup.
  8. I purchased the Klipsch S4i Rugged Edition about 6 months ago, and they have quickly become my favorite pair of earphones ever. However, I have recently lost the eartips that fit me best. Can you guys tell me where I can get replacement ear tips in India? Thanks a bunch! Mathew
  9. Not sure if any of you got wind of this yet, but Classic Album Sundays is putting on monthly listening sessions with Klipsch La Scala speakers in Brooklyn, NY at the Baby's All Right night club: http://www.klipsch.com/Classic-Album-Sundays-Press-Release Classic Album Sundays is a really cool organization that shares the stories behind noteworthy albums and orchestrating in-depth vinyl listening sessions for fellow music enthusiasts. In other words, this is an event made for audiophiles by audiophiles. The first Classic Album Sundays event at Baby’s All Right is Sunday, May 11 at 4 p.m. and will highlight Neil Young’s landmark 1972 album “Harvest”. If you love music or simply just want to check out the La Scala speakers in-person, this is a great place to do it. It's probably the best demo opportunity you could ever get. For tickets & more info, go to http://www.ticketfly.com/event/562037-classic-album-sundays-neil-brooklyn/ Big shout-out to Stuart's Audio for doing the install: http://www.stuartsaudio.com/
  10. Amy and I found a bunch of the 65th Anniversary Klipsch posters (only 500 ever made) in a backroom and thought y'all might like to snag one! Of course, nothing in life is free, so we have a request from you in order to receive a poster... As you may have heard through the rumor mill, we are launching a new all-encompassing Klipsch Blog and we are looking to score some really great content for it. That's where you come in! To snag one of these posters, we are requesting that you write a blog post about your Klipsch setup in the following format. Here we go... MAIN PHOTO: We will only accept high-res photos for this so please do put some effort into the photos. We really cannot accept low quality photos with the way the blog is going to be setup - highly visual & landscape. WHEN/WHY YOU FIRST HEARD OF KLIPSCH: Just write about how you first came into contact with the brand. WHERE & WHERE YOU MADE YOUR PURCHASE: THE SETUP: Discuss how you went about setting up your system and what you use it for. MAIN SPEAKERS: What model they are and why you selected them CENTER CHANNEL (If applicable): What model it is and why you selected it SURROUNDS/BOOKSHELVES (if applicable): What model they are and why you selected them SUBWOOFER (If applicable): What model it is and why you selected it RECEIVER: What model it is and why you selected it AMPLIFIER (if applicable): What model it is and why you selected it MEDIA CABINETS (if applicable): People sometimes like to know what media cabinets you're using.

First...hmm...let's say 10 people to do this will snag a sweet 65th Anniversary Klipsch poster! Thanks, everyone EDIT: Just post your answers to these questions below or, if you find that uncomfortable, shoot an email to alex.leopold@klipsch.com
  11. I am putting together my first ever stereo system (turntable, speakers, receiver), and I recently purchased a pair of vintage 1980 Klipsch Heresy HWL speakers. My dad had a similar pair when I was younger, so I purchased them partly for nostalgia and sentimental reasons. My earliest musical listening experiences were through Klipsch. They had a tremendous impact on me and are a huge reason why I'm a musician today. My next step is getting a tubed receiver. All the research I've done on the vintage Heresy speakers suggest that the Heresys really sing through tubed instead of solid state, as that is what they were designed for. They also recommend getting a receiver or amp with a mid level controller. So far, I've been looking at Marantz (specifically the 2270 and 2275 model), Mcintosh, and Fischer. However, I'm also trying not to break the bank and am open to other suggestions. I will only be playing vinyl through this set-up. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions, recommendations, or advice. I'm brand new to this! Thanks!
  12. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to hear Jeff Hoak's LaScalas and they were beautiful sounding speakers. I had the chance to pick up a pair recently and had TOTALLY forgot how large they were. LOL. These have an absolutely beautiful finish. Other than a few small nicks near the bottom of the cabinets, they are in amazing condition for a 34 year old speaker. Everything looks original and they have AA Crossovers. Serial Numbers are Sequential. Based on the serial number, they are Vintage 1980. There weren't any stickers on the back so I'm not sure of the style these (not even sure what different variety LaScalas came in. I have no idea what finish these are in or if they were stained at one time. Feel free to help educate me on these because I know little to nothing about them. I've been listening to a variety of source material. Youtube and streaming and Airplay from my cell phone sound like garbage on them. Haha. I think it's because they are just very revealing? Once I hooked up Dave Matthews, Eagles and a few other concert DVD's, they sounded very nice. I've always heard guys speak of how the 3-way heritage speakers have better midrange. I've owned Forte II and Chorus II and I thought those were "heritage" but later found out they weren't part of the heritage series. I never felt they blew away my RF-83's in the midrange department. The LaScalas definitely have a better midrange though. That midrange horn is HUGE! The throat on the horn is 2ft deep. It's very smooth and vocals sound amazingly natural. Bass from the LaScalas in my HT is extremely weak. I even turned the crossover for my mains to Full and they were still weak. I've always heard guys say that about the LaScalas and there are a few that "claim" the LaScalas have plenty of bass. Sorry, that's just not the case in my room. Over the next week, I want to move them into my living room (wife has to leave for a few hours to do that). I want to see how bass sounds with hardwood floor and how they sound in a very open floorplan layout. No worries as long as you have a capable sub. My RSW-15 provided plenty of low end to allow the LaScalas to really shine. Movies sounded amazingly clear and precise. Very detailed. My next step is to do some A/B comparison between the LaScalas and the RF-83's to see how they directly compare to each other. Because the LaScalas do not have banana plugs, I have a set of speaker cables hooked up to the RF-83's and a second set hooked up to the LaScalas and will have to change the cables on the back of the amp. It should be another fun comparison. Here are some pics I took of them tonight.
  13. Hello, I am new to the Klipsch community and I have been listening to Klipsch speakers my whole life, love them, and I have something I would like to share with everyone so here is my story. About two years ago I was online looking for a pair of Klipsch speakers. I wanted a pair of La scala or Cornwalls but I didn't have a lot of money at the time and just wanted see what was out there and what the going prices were. Then I found a listing for a pair of Cornwalls that were pretty rough looking and had blown speakers but they were only $500 and for some reason I had to have them, so I bought them. I live in Dayton Ohio and the seller lived in Chicago. He wouldn't ship them so I rented a SUV and headed to the windy city. When I got to the sellers house he greated me and we talked for a bit (really good guy, Klipsch nut) and then he said, well let me show you your speakers. When I turned the corner and saw them the first thing I thought was, I made a huge mistake and it's to late to turn back now. The cabinets looked like they had never been cleaned, covered with a dark film and dirt. The grills were both broken and there were some pretty deep scratches. This guys cat was sleeping inside one of the cabinets and had been using them as a cat scratcher too, they were in bad shape. He helped me load them up and I headed home thinking all the way, I screwed up big time. When I got to my home there were two of my buddies waiting on me to help me unload them and take them in the house. Man did they give me a hard time, laughing and ribbing me about how bad they looked and, You rented a SUV and drove all that way and paid $500 for these, and to make things worse we unscrewed the back panels and they had Radio Shack woofers in them. Everything else was there and all original but Radio Shack woofers, Really. After making the drive there and back and getting razzed about how bad they looked and the RS woofers it was time for a beer and let that day go. The next morning I started working on my diamonds in the rough, taking everything out of them (the RS woofers went right in the trash) and started to clean them up. They had the correct crossovers, tweeters, horns, drivers so things were starting to look up. I started wiping the cabinets down with some Murrphys oil soap in warm water but this stuff wasn't coming off. After getting them as clean as I could they still looked a little dark. I could start to see the gain and the real color of the wood starting to come out but I didn't know what kind of wood it was. It didn't look like any finish on a Klipsch speaker that I had ever seen. I got some very fine sand paper and started sanding them down very lightly, taking my time and being very careful not to go to deep. As I was sanding I suddenly realized these were something different, something very different, and I was right. After doing some research on Klipsch web site I knew I had found some diamonds in the rough and it was all well worth it. The cabinets have consecutive serial numbers and were made in 1973. They are made with Zebra wood and according to Klipsch they are very rare. Only a few pairs were ever made using this type of wood and Klipsch never used it again. In 1973 a lot of groups were protesting about the destruction of the rain forrest and all the trees being cut down. Zebra wood comes from the rain forrest and Klipsch wanted to avoid any bad publisity for importing this exotic type of wood so they stopped using it before they really even started to. I don't know how many they made but I have never seen a pair like it and probably never will. I was able to find a nice clean pair of the correct 15" K-33E woofers along with replacing all the diaphragms in the K-55 and K-77 drivers. I sent the crossovers to Bob Crites to replace the old capacitors and make sure everything was up to spec. I went to a local wood working/ cabinet shop and talked to them about what would be the best way to refinish the cabinets and make that zebra wood pop. They were very helpful and told me what to do and what not to do. It has taken some time and money but it was well worth it. In the sun light the zebra wood looks awesome, very detailed lines and color running through the grain, sometimes I just stand there and look at them. After I got them back together and started listening to them on my 10wpc set tube amp I was amazed. Nothing sounds like a Cornwall powered by a single ended tube amp and nothing looks this good either. So that's my little story about how my diamonds in the rough became to be the crown jewels. I have some pictures of the whole process they went though and I just wanted to share them with everyone. Let me know what you think and thanks for taking the time to read my post.

  20. An acquaintance of mine contacted me asking if I knew anyone that might be interested in purchasing a pair of RT-10D. I've never owned any of the RT Series and have only heard one demo a LONG time ago. I want to see how they compare to my RSW-15 so I decided to buy them. My schedule has been crazy busy lately but as soon as I have some time, I will do some comparisons between Dual RT10D and a Single RSW15. Do you think that would be a fair comparison? To me, it's hard to tell because you have (1) Active 15" & (1) Passive 15" in the RSW-15 vs (2) Active 10" & (4) Passive 10" in the RT-10D. What are your thoughts on which might come out on top? RSW-15 Specs: 600 RMS / 2400 Peak Down to 19Hz 121dB Surface Area: 352 RT-10D Specs: 700 RMS / 1600 Peak Down to 22Hz 119dB with Single RT-10D 122dB with Dual RT-10D Surface Area of single RT-10D: 235.5 Surface Area of Dual RT-10D: 471 The RT-10D is designed to be in a corner so I'm thinking about leaving my RSW-15 behind the bottom right door of the False Wall and placing the RT-10D behind the false wall in the corners. Here is my prediction.....the RSW-15 will beat a single RT-10D but Dual RT-10D will beat RSW-15. Now when I say beat, I'm probably just talking shear impact. The RSW-15 is very musical but I've heard the same about the RT-10D series as well. Guess that's part of the fun finding out through experimentation. Visually, the finish on the RT-10D is absolutely gorgeous! Very deep, dark cherry wood color. Although they have a small profile, they are quite heavy for their size. The foam surrounds are very tight and thick. Unfortunately, everyone is in bed so I'll have to wait till tomorrow night to fire them up! This should be a fun comparison! Below are some pics for your enjoyment.

  23. One owner, excellent condition RF52's, with the original shipping boxes! I cannot find any marks or blemishes on any of the surfaces of these speakers, they are in outstanding condition. These are not RF52II's. These are the original, older and slightly more affordable RF's. I used these as surrounds and ended up with RF52's as mains, they are nearly identical, I can tell no sonic differences, and aesthetics are incredibly minor. I bought the speakers as I had the money and they upgraded the line before I had completed the system! I have the original boxes and packaging materials so they will be safe to ship - buyer pays shipping. I am currently in Winston-Salem, NC, however I will be moving in a few months to Lexington, KY and making some what regular trips up there - if that influences any one's purchasing decisions. Click here for more images Please let me know if you have any questions! These were originally $329 Each - a total of $658 Retail. Buy the pair for $300!
