Price Advice K Horn

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Anyone able to give me advice on what price they'd be expecting to on a pair of KB-WO's from the 1970's (not sure exact year yet as seller is away). 

Seller will provide exact year, exact condition and images when they return home.

 

What would you expect to pay providing they are in good condition? Seller is saying $4400 is the going rate for that model in great condition, seems a bit high to me, or am I wrong?

 

Thanks

@wvu80 where's that dang spreadsheet? Should be pinned to Garage sale or something. You have worked so diligently to create and keep up.

I'm sure I'll butcher the spelling but if they were Macassar Ebony or Ramblin Rosewood.....  (or some of the other exotic veneers they used) I wouldn't let the price push me away yet....  but if they are walnut, oak...or one of the (no offense intended) pedestrian finishes....  then I'd be a lot more hesitant on the price.

Thanks so much for your help, it feels a little high from what I've seen around but I'm new to the Klipsch world and very much a beginner. Hopefully this spreadsheet might help provide some more answers!

I'm in Indianapolis, if you need any help with these, let me know. I have a friend here in Indy, he's from England, I'll buzz him to see if he has any ideas on shipping. Seems like it has to be pretty expensive.

Thanks so much, I may we’ll take you up on this. Has your friend shipped Khorns to the U.K. before by any chance?

Did you check with a Klipsch UK Dealer for B Stock Khorns or LaScala -or even Cornwall IV  , the New Cornwall IV  are actually amazing speakers -

B Stock are  brand new speakers with imperfections that can be anything from scratches to a corner damage  - or a veneer issue - but they are rebated -

I think I remember Cory saying B stock on Heritage is limited to U.S. retailers.

 

@billll How long have you been looking for a pair of khorns?  If I were you I'd much rather find something at least in Europe.  I can't imagine how expensive shipping from the U.S. to you would be on them!

I don't think he has shipped much gear overseas, but he might have an idea.

@wuzzzer about 2.5 years and I missed the last pair to come up in the U.K. by 6 months.

 

Europe is an option but the prices are far more expensive than the US, it actually looks like it works out cheaper buying from the US and sending over.
