Isshinryu Posted March 18, 2022 Share Posted March 18, 2022 (edited) After much deliberation, I have decided to sell my 2017 La Scala II speakers. Most of my decision is based on an upcoming move in mid-May and, due largely to their physical size and weight, I really don't want to move these speakers to our new home. I purchased them as brand new, factory sealed, B stock from a dealer in Wisconsin. The B stock designation has nothing to do with damage and everything to do with the finish. They have been used with quality electronics including Luxman integrated (20WPC Class A), Modwright pre amp, and First Watt power amp (25WPC Class A). As to the finish, the dealer I purchased these from told me Klipsch used leftover veneer from the "limited production" 70th Anniversary La Scala (Australian Walnut) for this pair of non-70th Anniversary speakers. The images show this pair with serial numbers ending in 001 and 002. I do not know how many pairs of these speakers were made with this veneer, so the serial numbers should not be considered as representing rarity for this version. While the workmanship on these speakers is entirely first-rate, you will note the veneer is not book-matched. I suspect that is due to the use of the leftover veneer. The pictures illustrate this, as well as the beauty and condition of these speakers. They are in perfect condition with no imperfections of any kind (beyond the non-standard veneer). They have not been moved since being originally placed. Boxes are in like-new condition and all paperwork received with the speakers conveys with the purchase. Price is $4,500. These speakers are located (and have been used) in my smoke-, child-, and pet-free home and always used by "older" responsible adults. Never played to excess or abused in any fashion. These will require pickup from my home outside Knoxville, Tennessee. I will be glad to help with the very careful packing and loading. I have no interest in shipping these due to the potential for damage or loss during transit. Lastly, it is likely obvious that I am not an expert in either Klipsch or La Scala speakers. Please consider all discussion regarding the use of the 70th Anniversary version veneer as anecdotal. I've only represented what I was told during the transacted sale. If you have questions, please PM me. Thanks. Edited March 21, 2022 by Isshinryu Speakers were sold today (3/21/2022) 6 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
