Heresy III's join the fold

I am pretty impressed with the sound of the Heresy III's. I been wanting some heresy's for a bedroom system for a while. I've watched for some minty ones to become available, but all the ones I've been seeing are not mutch less than new ones--so I just pulled the trigger on some new ones.

I received a pretty good a$$ chewin from my wife, but after listening to them all night last night and today, she has decided that they are hers. She now claims the h-III's and rf-7 II's (the new ones are hers and the old ones are mine).

I have only heard one set of older heresy's that a buddy has--it's been a while since I've heard his, so I can't really compare to the h-III's. To my ears they have a really sweet sound. I'm not running a sub right now--and probably won't. I've got them in corners, and the base sounds pretty good. I'm am very pleased with them.

Very nice. Did you oil them up or are they really that shiny? They look as good as my custom rosewood H3s. I was cranking my pair yesterday. I put a new CD player in my main system and "trickled down" a nice Cambridge 640C to my H3 system. They were sounding good even without the sub running but really rocked when I fired up the sub. The sub takes them down a few more hertz for the music that needs a little more bottom end.

They looked that way out of the box. Had them playing all day today. I've got them goin in the bedroom, cornwalls goin in the offce/cave and rf-7's goin in the living room--all grouped together on sonos. It's kinda cool walking through the house listening to the different Klipsch flavors. :D

Hard to beat the walnut, though I'm tempted to try a cherry on anything else I might get. My JBL 4311 speakers are walnut and still look pretty good after 40 years. My HIIs are black lacquer and the La Scalas are a nice Walnut stained birch. The black HIIs kinda disappear and goes with just about anything else. Currently they are sitting between my LS doing TV duty.
