Selling Pair of RP-5s (3-way towers w/powered subs), matching RC-3 Center, Integra DTR 9.1 U2

Recommended Posts

So I'm fundraising for family medical needs and thought I'd approach this forum about the set of audio gear I'm selling. I live in Philadelphia, so a buyer in the northeast corridor would be ideal since this is some heavy stuff, but shipping isn't completely out of the question.

So here's what's on the block:

  • 2 (1 pair) RP-5 Towers

Integra DTR 9.1 U2 Receiver - 7.1 Channel THX Ultra2 Certified, 130W x 7 channels @ 8 ohms...this thing is a monster. Integra is Onkyo's high-end line, and the 9.1U2 was the most feature-rich receiver of its day. It can still wipe the floor with most anything out there today; it's just not going to connect directly to your wireless router or dock your iPhone. It does pack all the crossovers and processing (e.g. 8 192 kHz/24-Bit DACs) you'd expect and then some...2 sub pre-amp outs (perfect for the RP-5s), 7 pre-amp outs, one for each channel for additional power amps, Zone 2 amplification, 12v triggers, even discrete 5.1 multichannel inputs (which future-proofed this beast - it lacks HDMI, but any source that can output up to 6 (for 5.1) discrete preamplified analog channels over RCA - which it will upconvert to 7.1 - will flow beautifully into this thing via the included RCA to DB-25 adaptor...I could go on. Hit the links for the whole story. Official Product Page. Online Manual.






Klipsch Speakers: The three speakers are in great condition. Functionally they are flawless and sound amazing. There are small dents in the mid driver of each RP-5, but otherwise all other aspects of the speakers are in excellent condition. The grilles of the RP-5s and the RC-3 are fine, but missing a few pegs; they all fit securely into the speakers.

Integra Receiver: This unit itself is in near mint condition. The backlit learning remote control (RC-418M) has a crack in the plastic underneath the power button, but it's cosmetic only, barely noticeable, and the remote is functionally perfect. The receiver comes with power cable, remote, and DB-25 to 6-CA Adapter

Terms & Asking Price:

The speakers sell as a set; I will sell the receiver separately or throw everything together. At the right price I'll throw in monster cables for all three speakers, plus 2 preamped subwoofer cables for the RP-5s. Please keep in mind I paid over $2K for the three speakers and $3K for the receiver. To reiterate, there'd be no way I'd sell these unless it was for the purpose stated at the beginning of the post.

  • I'm asking $650 for the three Klipsch speakers (2 x RP-5, 1 x RC-3)
  • I'm asking $650 for the Integra DTR 9.1 U2 Receiver (incl. Remote, of course)
  • I'll take $1200 for all of the above and throw in:
    • (3) Monster Cable M-Series Speaker Cables (two are red/black for L/R - one is 10', the other 15', and the third 10' green/black for C)
    • (2) Monster Cable M-Series Subwoofer Cables (quite long, est. one is 15' and the other is 20')

PM me with offers, and I'll answer any questions I can in this thread. Pics of this actual gear forthcoming,

Welcome to the forum. We do not bid around here, I'm pretty sure it's against forum rules also. Most forums are this way. Please put an asking price to get some interest.

Thanks for the welcome! I've edited the initial post with asking prices. Here's the receiver, you can see the RC-3 in the photo as well. Note that I've opened the extendable/retractable motorized door that reveals additional controls and the headphone jack:
