Hi,

 

Search here :

 

https://www.klipsch.com/dealers

 

Where in Scandinavia ? Sweden, Norway, Denmark ? 

Thanks, I’m in Sweden and I know of dealers in Stockholm but that’s a 5 hour drive (single journey) from where I live. When the Covid situation comes under control I’m going. 

 

I have called dealers and talked to them but they tend to try and talk me out of the idea of buying Klipsch, instead they recommend other brands, one suggested Dynaudio, another suggested going for the JBL L100 classic. Dynaudio is not a speaker that is particularly fun (although they are usually forgiving of bad recordings). I have heard the JBL L100 classic and that speaker is very engaging with scale and dynamics, to me it sounded awesome with classical music and jazz. On the downside, I found them to be harsh with classic rock and other rock music, live recordings (even good ones) sounded flat and not engaging at all. At low volumes they were not engaging at all. Not sure if the CW4 will provide what’s good with the JBL and fix what I did not like, but I do want a speaker that can bring scale and dynamics. There’s a dealer admitting that the Klipsch are great fun and to me that’s what it’s all about, I’ll visit them later on. In the mean time I’m trying to see what people like about their CW IVs (and perhaps what they don’t like).

Hi,

I had the same problem as you in 2016. When I bought my Cornwall IIIs, no one was selling them in France, I found them in Germany at 12 o'clock (one way) from home, in addition they were not in the store, but in boxes packed at the importer. Impossible to go listen to them, I ordered the speakers on the net with closed ears. And I was right, because not only did the price double a few months later (from 3000 to 6000 € the pair) but the sound is really what I was looking for: a dynamic and lively sound, good with all music: from Rock to Jazz, and Classic, from acoustic to electric. If you are really interested then take the step, but only you have the answer to know if it is worth it. I think the biggest flaw is that the speakers take a long time to break in, and a lot of people listen to them new out of the box saying they're stiff and lacking in bass, it creates a bad reputation especially now with the internet.

The funniest thing is that now for 2 or 3 years, there is an authorized Klipsch Heritage dealer 20kms from my home, with plenty of Heritage on display in their showroom

Hi @dwilawyer

 

I bought mine in 2016 in Germany, the importer is Osiris Audio, there is their brand on the packaging of my photo.  https://osirisaudio.de/produkt-kategorie/klipsch-heritage-series/


The store which is 20km (12.5 Miles) from my home is Iacono in Nîmes, France

Nb: I don't know what they have at the moment like Heritage in the store, on the Klipsch.com site it says La Scala, Heresy and Klipschorn and I know that in 2020 he also had Forte III and CWIII Special Edition East Indian Rosewood that they sold at the end of 2020. With Covid 19 the store does not receive the public for a simple visit, they only do internet sales or visits by appointment for a purchase.

Well I love Nimes, and everything around it, that is very, very beautiful area.

 

When things settle down I am really looking forward to checking this hotel out:
