I'm glad you don't live close to me. Please tell me these are already gone.

Sorry to say I have had no bites whatsoever. I was surprised honestly since I know when I got these they were a hot commodity. However, I've been doing all this a while now like you guys so I realize that timing is everything. No worries though, if they don't sell I can always use them in my office and post them again at another time.

Income Tax time would likely be a better time.  Funds tend to be tight during Christmas.  Best wishes with the sale.

Im a Klipsch newb and not trying to troll, but are the 75s that much better than RB-5s at nearly three times the price? Or is it just what the market bears on them now?

I have owned two pairs of RB-5's and my current RB-75's.  IMO, the 75's are clearly better from top to bottom.  With that said, value is relative to purchaser.  I(my opinion) think they are "worth" every penny of what the going average price is today, which is $600.00 to $700.00.  I think just for that fact that the 75's have 1.75" compression drivers similar to the RF-7's is a reason to be twice the value of the 5's.  Then add a larger wood veneered cabinet, Reference III magnetic grill(much more durable than the 5's broken peg prone grill), and front ported.

Very good! Was just wondering. There are a number of niche speakers from different manufacturers that seem to dig in and hold a good value.

The RB-75 doesn't use exactly the same compression driver as the RF-7, Looks quit different as well.

I have the same opinion as Bill.  I have owned RB-5, RB-75, RB-35, RB-81ii (all 4 are similar in size and specs) and have heard a friend's RB-5's in his setup. To me, I wasn't super impressed with the sound of the RB-5's, RB-35 or RB-81ii.  I was however very impressed with the RB-75's.  The larger tweeter makes the RB-75 sound like a Mini-RF-7.

The RB-75 will continue to hold it's value because it is IMO the best bookshelf reference speaker Klipsch has ever produced.
