Man.......... $14k??? Almost double the LaScala II price????

 

I was so excited for this release, and Klipsch comes with that price? Disappointed to say the least. They are gorgeous, nonetheless. But $7000 a piece?? No way

Not liking the price....Definitely not liking the Australian Walnut...I do like the Cornwall's in California Black Walnut....But these I'll pass on.....

 

Are trees that rare in Australia?

 

 

 

G.E.M.

Australian Walnut is fairly common in Australia.  Additional shipping and handling costs to get it to the US make up much of the cost difference compared to domestic sourced American Walnut. If you are in the market for La Scala II, Klipsch has a deal for you. $14,000 from the 'Land Down Under' or $8,000 from the 'Land of the Red, White, and Blue'.  (Same speaker as for as I know.)

 

G.E.M.

Why is the LaScala markup even bigger than the KHorn one??

 

I'm still just blown away by this $14k price tag. Good Lord...

 

There are still 70th KHorns unsold on the site, wouldn't that indicate that the price is set a little high? Only 70 sets and not sold out...

 

Damn, this price is such a disappointment. Heresy's were marked up the least and they sold out almost immediately...

My joking answer would be that they only need to sell one pair...Not so funny is it makes one wonder could this be the last reiteration of them from Hope...Dunno but they do look nice.

You have to pay a premium for "PRETTY"

From what I understand, making any of them pretty (whether it be Heritage vs. Pro or whatever) is a nice chunk of the production cost anyway.

That would be hard to believe. A company's fixed cost of production is plant, overhead, and labor. The Anniversary speakers are made in the same plant, with the same overhead and labor.  Cost of materials may be more, we don't know.  If so, they could actually offset the added material cost by applying a marginal cost factor to the limited product.

Chad, after reading your link, the page describes the CWIII70 as having "folded horn technology". Are the ports for the woofer considered a "folded horn"??

I'm guessing they copied and pasted wrong like last time. When they announced the 70th klipschorns, I believe they were labeled small speakers. This was copied from the heresy's.

Yeah, that was a copy/paste mistake. I'll have our copy editor properly flogged.

besides the nice veneer..... What's inside the speakers, i.e. are there any sonic upgrades improvements?

In case you aren't on our email mailing list (why aren't you?) - here's the product page for the 70th Anniversary Cornwall: http://www.klipsch.com/products/cornwall-iii-70th-anniversary-edition

 

 

Visited the link, thanks. Looks like only a veneer change.

 

What about the LaScala, there's not mention on the website about the 70th anniversary La Scala shown in your original post.

Well I'm just glad to see new product coming out in the Heritage line:D

 

Been a long time since I've been to the forum, love the new look, not as much as the two new releases but close;)

14....K. Wooowzers.:blink: Different strokes for different folks I guess. Definitely not feeling this groove. I think I'll go the Forte/Fifteens route.
