These speakers are really in decent physical shape, not perfect. I have more photos and am absolutely willing to do a "video tour" to show fronts sides and back all together on both if anyone is interested. Had them in my living room for quite a while, they are just too big for my house though. Sound amazing to me but I really don't know much about speakers or sound systems. I have a feeling someone would love to have these for a better than decent price so make an offer if you are interested. They are heavy too so I don't really want to ship them, wouldn't even know how to do that, but I suppose I would entertain the idea if you are paying for the shipping. Better if you are in driving range of Austin Texas and can come get them. OK go... don't be shy.
Hi gang, First time poster. Thanks for being here. I just went and looked at a pair of Klipschorns (1990, type B, oiled oak). They are in amazing cosmetic shape aside from a few minor nicks - original wicker grilles... all original K-55-M squakers, K-77-M tweeters, and AK-3 crossovers. They were sitting in the middle of a small room side-by-side hooked up to a crappy Yamaha A/V receiver and a JBL active subwoofer??! They sounded pretty awful. I turned off the subwoofer and tried to remove all of the DSP from the amp (don't think I was 100% successful) enough to verify that the tweeters/squakers/drivers were all functional. The only music source I had for the demo was unfortunately over-processed FM radio. I'm aware of the fact that when I get them home and put them in the corners they will sound better and have increased bass response. The current owner said he inherited these from his neighbor 2 years ago when he moved, and exclaimed "they don't make these anymore", and "they CRANK". My longterm goal would be to tri-amp them with active 3-way crossovers and possibly replace some of the diaphrams. He says (true or not) that a guy is coming on Sunday with cash, so I have only a short time to decide. He's $1500 firm for the pair. What do you all think... should I go for it? - Justin
