That is a good buy, 20% less than Klipsch was getting for them when discontinued.

you are definitely right on that one , new pair - mint condition - no scratches -is a lot better for 9k$  for a used set -at least 10 years of 0 problems -

 

-have you ever considered buying a pair of these speakers , and are they that good   ?  by that I mean superior to a Khorn

They are getting harder to find, especially in great shape like these appear to be. Some people paid 20k for those a few years ago. I think they sound superb. They are 3-4 people on here that have Palladiums and Khorns, they all chose the Palladium overall. They are stunning in person.

I would wonder how these really sound like ,I never saw a pair anywhere in my neck of the woods -

the sad part is that they were not powered speakers , with built in amps

I dont doubt it at all - it must be quite an experience to be able to hear them play - their reputation is spotless   - I would buy a pair at the right price  if the deal comes up -

This is a good price for spectacular speakers. If I didn't have two kids in college, and had an extra 8k laying around, these would be in my living room....along with the P38s there now 😀

Fortunately they weren't self powered with built in amps. Look up the KSP-300 and KSP-400 for built in amps that fail

yeah , you are right on that one , the owners had better luck pulling the amps out and using an external amp---------after 15 years -----the amp technology was so much superior -

I've never heard any of the Palladium series but have heard many positive reviews.  What is the factory support on this series?  If a woofer or other driver gets damaged, are there replacements available?

There is a limited supply of parts, someone on here replaced a couple woofers a while back. Probably getting slim though. These are actually 3.5 way speakers.

As far as the sound goes, a few years ago in Hope they were demoed in the same room as khorns and rf7s. I preferred khorns over them, so did my wife. They did sound better than the rf7s. Wonderful midrange, voices really lifelike but khorns better overall
