Oh and here is the blog I wrote for these beauties: LINK

 

Also, would y'all be interested in a bunch of production photos that I have? The production photo on the 70th Anniversary Heresy III page is a legitimate shot of these speakers. Not one from years past.

 

If you guys are interested, I'll edit a bunch of them and post them here and probably on our flickr account as well.

Yes, please do!

$3200 a pair?  You really think they'll go fast?

 

Yes. Many have already been accounted for. Trust me, I was surprised too! Not because the speakers aren't worth it - they are truly breathtaking - however, that is a certainly a lot of coin.

 

 

Referencing Stereo Review's "Stereo Directory & Buying Guide 1974" the Heresy is listed at $276 which in today's dollars is $1413 or $2826/pr.

 

Given the 70th ed. comes with a fancy veneer, a set of floor stands and free shipping the price isn't out of line (it's not a bargain either).

 

FWIW, the Klipschorn in the same directory is listed at $990 ea. or $10,136/pr in 2016 dollars.  The factory list is $12,000/pr. which is 1.18X higher than the 2016 equivalent of the 1974 price.

Well, my order from Klipsch.com went through, but was canceled two days later due to the warehouse being out of stock...

 

Luckily, an immediate search online landed me a pair from Hifi Heaven, which had them on the way from Klipsch already!! In my opinion, the $3200 price tag is relatively cheap for such a limited run, and I was happy to pay it. I don't exactly have anywhere to put these yet, but that won't be a problem for long.

Wow that makes me wonder if I should have ordered about 10 pair.  :)  

 

The one set I ordered will probably be here in a couple days.  Yes there will be pictures.

I would love a set of the Heresy logo's for my piano black decorator Heresy's.  What are the chances for a set of the logos?  I assume they are adhesive backed or a pin.

Forgive my lack of photography skills on the above pics, I can't take good pictures to save my life.
