Reference premier towers?

Recommended Posts

These seem to be behind schedule? No one around me has them to demo? And I know of a few others that have ordered them and are just waiting on them in other areas. What gives?

A guy on AVS claims he is supposed to have his RP450c delivered tomorrow, maybe they're all getting ready for delivery.

I found a place by me that sells them and they only have the book shelf also. the towers haven't been in yet. I also listened to them. Not bad, but not great IMO. I think RFll sound better.I listened to both lines while at the place.

I see….what are your impressions? You have an RC64ll also correct?

Just looking at them they are surprisingly impressive.  Haven't listened to them yet, been trying to wrap up other projects.

They definitely have a nicer look to them than the older Reference. I like the cabinets a lot more than the older Reference and the vinyl seems to be a lot better and crisper looking.

They have had the towers for a couple of weeks at my local dealer in Calgary.

Tell me where? I went out looking some weeks back at Future shop no luck. Where did you find them? Thank. Best regards Moray James.

thats not very exciting considering I'm waiting on a set of these.

Which did you compare? And what did you like less about one over the other?

http://www.radiocrafts.ca/klipsch-calgary-store.html 16th ave and 7th street, they are all setup when you go in. My understanding is they will not be sold at Futureshop.

Well Future Shop had them advertised in flyers that came to my door and they were in their computer system just not in stock at the time. Thanks I will pop up to the Craft some time when they are not busy. Will ask at London Drugs as well just to see what they say. Thank you for the heads up. Best regards Moray James

I would say its bigger but it could be an optical illusion, I mean look how much bigger those two middle 6.5's look on the RC-64ii. It's the same size as the outside ones but it doesn't look like it. I'll look in person sometime. My good camera is broken right now, this other one might be doing weird stuff.

I love how klipsch has done nothing but ignore this question every where I have asked.

Strange- my local dealer here has the new stuff in the showroom.... I bought their floor model RF7ii's so they could have room in their Klipsch room for the new stuff. (Awesome show room... Everything Klipsch on hand! They have la-scala on display, and k-horns! )

It's in Rockford, Illinois. Primetime audio & video.

They've had the new rp-280 for about 2 weeks I think.

And that camera picture looks like it has some fisheye distortion causing the center objects to appear larger.
