Klipsch Console ($15k Indy)

Recommended Posts

It’s been listed in the garage sale section for a month or so
If it’s the same one, the seller used to work for Klipsch.

So what's next? Maybe avocado colored fridges? Heck, let's throw in the old 8-track players!

 

Gotta luv that console!

You nailed that on the head exactly. It was the last project the Historian/Curator, Jim Hunter, ever ran for Klipsch. The project was killed, pulled, whatever, I don't know about the particulars, but I suspect the hight cost/quality of what they put in would put it as a price, as you say, that wouldn't yield "sufficeint quantities to make it a viable" option.  

 

Only 10 Console's were made, Jim has the provenance on each and every one.

 

The Klipsch Museum of Audio History just acquired one through the very generous donations of one of it's members. (The IRS stills allows favorable write-off/tax incentitives of items to bonifide 501(c)(3) Museums).

 

The Museum hopes to have it on display and playing at one of the events it is hosting during Pilgrimage.

 

Stay tuned.
