What I Got Today!

Got he "price listing from @wvu80 (thanks again) and think it might be worth it. Buy it or not? :) Appreciate your inputs.

You have my spreadsheet, so you now know what I know.  Buy or not?  IMO it's kind of a choice of values.

 

You already know they are about $138 under the "average" price, so good to go on that front. 

 

Those front grills aren't in good shape and I think in a living room set up it might bug you.  They have the dreaded plant on top, so look for water rings. 

 

My favorite speakers, the CF-4s don't have front grills so they are relegated to the Man Cave, which is OK with me because it's where I do most of my listening.  The pretty RF-83's do living room duty.

 

Like you, the Chorus II's fascinate me.  I would love to hear them sometime.

 

I think the $500 might be a fair price for speakers in that condition, which would be a Condition C on my spreadsheet because of the grills.  If you resell them I don't think you would get top dollar out of them, but I think you could get your money back out of them if you don't like them. 

 

I say go for it, but offer $400 because of the damage to the grills and probably water rings on the top.

 

Then tell me how they sound.  B)

Sure, why not

Thank you SIR :) Will get them if I can. :( (Woman) seller is kind of a "pain" ... asked for extra pics and response was "just come and look at them." Also, asked to "audition" them, with response "they are fine." :) 

Cheers, Emile

Hi @oldtimer and @wvu80 Thanks for the "go-ahead" advice. Have been trying and trying :(  but seller is an absolute pain in the a**. She already cancelled 2 appointments, does not want to sent extra pics, raised the price by $100 since someone else was interested and won't confirm that they are hooked up so that I can check them out. :(  (Lost $250 on a bad pair of KG5.2's a month ago because I did not check them. :( ) Will try one more time tomorrow. Also ... "bad" part of town so I'll be "carrying" my F&N Five-Seven. :) 

Cheers, Emile

$600 now?  They would have to be near perfect, only small barely noticeable nicks and dings plus in perfect working order for that.  If you are going to check them out bring your own power and music source, and some speaker wire and hook it up yourself.  Sheesh.  Good luck, maybe these aren't meant to be.

Raised the price 'cause someone was interested? Sounds like a real piece of work to me. Considering  the antics she's pulled would be last she would hear from me. I need nothing that bad. Pass ----

Yeah; some of these sellers seem to know Klipsch fanatics and will screw us for a couple of extra bucks. :( 

Cheers, Emile

Nice!  We probably shouldn't talk shop about such things (I'm avoiding the "G" word) but I also CC and that Five-Seven is awesome!  FYI have an M&P Shield 9mm.

 

I don't know what to tell you about the PIA Seller who raised the price a hundred bucks.  Only you know if it's worth it to you.  I trust your judgement.

Awesome!  Actually, have some F&N's PS90's also... we live on Tampa Bay and IF a good size hurricane hits we'll need them to keep looters out. :)

Found this advertised locally. I wish it had the case but even so I really have no NEED for it but it was at an attractive price. Widow selling stuff, said she had some of those Klipsch speakers of unknown model in the other house; we are meeting at 9:00 tomorrow morning to see what they are. She didn't like the sound of the Mc so when I noticed that she had connected the speakers to SPK 1 left and SPK 2 left she still didn't want to keep it.

That's a beaut @USNRET and FIVE-WAY tone control to boot!

Thanks. That is her listing photo. Guess I'll replace the Sansui AU / TU 5900 combo with this as I have zero room for extras. The sui powers JBL 4312s in the kids' game room; karaoke and gaming.
