Hawaiian koa veneer?

 

I got two samples of that stuff, almost looks like cedar with a sheen, nothing nearly as figured as this.

I was looking up the cost of some new Venere for my H-1’s. Holy cow this stuff has gone through the roof The stuff I wanted is that purple wood. Forget the name. But a sheet of 4x8 was over 1200. Plus shipping

One-time Opportunity Sale Of Museum Edition Klipschorn AK6-ME

A RARE BEAST 

In addition to the legendary acoustics and impressive upgrades already included in the AK6, the Klipsch Museum of Audio History is proud to offer a limited production of one (1) pair of unique Museum Edition Klipschorns – Numbered AK6 ME-001 and AK6 ME-002 – with official documentation verifying their provenance.

HANDSOMELY APPOINTED The units are custom veneered with Black Limba (Terminalia Superba), a beautiful West African species who’s lower trunk wood yields deep, radiating markings. Often used for guitar bodies and heirloom boxes, Black Limba’s grain pattern is said to be reminiscent of sound waves. 

DuraCrest has been supplying Klipsch Heritage loudspeaker grilles for nearly half a century. To celebrate the creation of the Museum Edition Klipschorns they have crafted a resplendent woven licorice and chocolate cloth that expertly complements the Black Limba’s depth and hue. 

“We have been tasked with the responsibility of doing what we do best... building beautiful grilles for Klipsch. We are calling it Klipsch #18-45 M . 18 is for the color designation, 45 is the number of years DuraCrest has been building grilles for Klipsch, and M for Museum.” – Ralph Fortino Jr.

TRULY UNIQUE Official Museum Edition plaques are affixed to the rear of each speaker enclosure – numbered and hand-signed by Roy Delgado, Jr. – PWK protégé and acoustic designer of the Klipschorn AK6. The Museum Edition Klipschorns also feature hand-matched AK6 crossover networks and drivers, personally selected by Roy. 

YOUR PURCHASE DIRECTLY SUPPORTS OUR CAUSE 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this exclusive pair of Klipschorn AK6 Museum Edition loudspeakers will go directly to the Klipsch Museum of Audio History, supporting its mission to proliferate the scientific principals and preserve the archives of Paul W. Klipsch.

LIFETIME MUSEUM MEMBERSHIP INCLUDED Your purchase includes a lifetime Khorn Corps membership to the Klipsch Museum of Audio History. You will receive a personalized plaque for home display, your named plaque on display in the Klipsch Museum of Audio History Hall of Fame, a monogrammed logo polo shirt and invitations to members-only events held during Klipsch Pilgrimage week each year.

These are SOLD.

 

They sold within an hour of being listed, multiple offers.

 

More info to follow about buyer, build, delivery, etc. (a great and longtime Klipschfan).

 

LaScala Museum Edition to be listed soon, I will give advance notice of time they are going up.

 

They will be exactly like the Museum Edition Khorns except . . . they will be the brand new AK5 LaScalas (same Tractrix tweeter and neodymium driver as AK6 Khorns).*

 

 

 

*They will have a different Museum Membership that will be offered as part of the sale.

OK, so who got them?

A very, very nice gentleman from Illinois, a 20 something year owner of Khorns who is upgrading his entire system before he retires. 

 

He had bought Fortes for his son awhile back and his son will now be getting his Khorns!

 

Multigenerational Klipsch fans!
