Is there a way to make the sale of these limited edition speakers (for lack of a better term), "more fair"   to those who might be interested in them?  Perhaps something like a private bid auction or something similar?  Set a base price and then take private PM bids for them for a limited amount of time?  Seems that the Khorns and LS were gone in a flash, and many folks didn't even get a chance at them.  I don't know, just thinking out loud.

Jim the Klipschorns sold in a day.

 

The La Scalas were offered in January and I agreed to purchase them May 3rd so everyone had ample time to decide if they wanted to buy them.

 

PS... I wanted them as soon as I saw them and I thought someone would grab them before my resistance to buy another speaker gave out .... so it’s everyone on this forum fault that I own them now...😄

I do like the museum's logo. Props to whoever put that together.

The Renaissance Man, Matt Sommers, Creative Director for KGI, KHMA Trustee, and Chair of Social Media Committee.

 

He did the Museum Edition Klipschorn AK-  6 brochure, he writes, produces and directs the cool Klipsch videos, photographer, graphic artist.  He says he is a "Klipsch Lifer."

 

If I hand him a rough draft of something he hands me back a diamond,  over, and over again.  He is one of the most talanted and creative people I have ever met.

You obviously didn't have your camera with you.

 

Have you picked drivers and crossovers networks for them yet?

FYI..... for anyone who might be interested in these museum edition loudspeaker systems while also helping support the Museum I wanted to highlight the hand selecting and matching of drivers and networks.

 

While spending time with Roy at the Chief Bonehead Class gathering we were talking about the La Scala AL5 Museum Edition I own and if I remember correctly he told me he matched the drivers and networks to within 1/4 dB.

 

These museum edition loudspeakers really are very special one of a kind treasures to own and enjoy..!!! 👍🙂

@Chief bonehead please correct me if I remembered incorrectly. 🙂

Holy Cow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

He told me way back when he had selected them for both the AK6 and the AL5, but he didn't elaborate what all he was doing to get them Chief Bone-asized or the extent of the Boneazation process. He just kept mumbling stuff about "they should look and sound like they belong in a museum" and "tractrixically speaking I would say that . . . ."

 

Mike is correct, 100% of the sales proceeds go to the Museum, less the cost of bullet proof crating, in some cases special shipping arrangements, and special insurance we purchase. We prefer checks over credit cards in order to maximize every dollar to the Museum. The wood vendor for KGI, thus far has thrown their support behind this project by donating to the cause the special wood veneers that we would normally eat into our return; and Duracrest stepped up and went out and purchased and commissioned special fabric just for the ME's specifically for that particular wood. KGI tries to save scrap plywood so that Jim Hunter can build the crates at no expense. Then there a dozen more that helped in so many way. Cory for example, said we could advertise on his social media when it was clear that "our" product was competing with his potential Heritage customers.

 

In the last decade or so I think Capitol Records is the only other outside company that been officially co-labeled with a Klipsch Heritage speaker model. I have said it before, but it bears repeating, the Museum was truly honored to be entrusted with partnering with KGI in creating an official speaker. Roy, Jim and Matt have put a lot of time into this concept hoping for a true win-win, maximize funds for the Museum while providing the purchaser with something extra, extra special and a lot of enjoyment. 

 

I am sincerely glad you are enjoying yours Mike.

Is the color of those photos pretty accurate or no? The grills almost look purple-ish/red-ish?

 

The African Limba veneer and Brown Grille Cloth are so beautiful in person and pictures are hard to take that captures the true beauty of them.

 


Here are pictures of my Museum LaScala to try to give anyone interested a better representation of the color of the veneer and grille cloth which is Brown if its the same as mine which I believe it is.

 

Travis ... I don’t want to distract from your thread so please feel free to remove this post later if you like since I’m just trying to give others interested in these Museum Edition Cornwall lV a good representation of what they can expect until better pictures of them can be posted by you.

I really enjoyed the livestream and the comments/questions on the feed. Thanks to the high bidder for benefitting the museum.

It was hard for me to see who all when in there because I was trying to track bids, I went back and listened and picked up a bunch more info.

Indeed. The Chief might consider a bracket to mount his computer on the “tree” he kept company. Save some steps and not keep everyone hanging on his every drop, err word —
