Another set of Klipschorns on ebay....


Audible Nectar

Recommended Posts

Sorry Guys. I had to buy them. The seller only lives 2 miles from my house, same town. I went to look at them yesterday, and thay are great. Very clean, consecutive numbers, (10R697 & 8), and he has paperwork.

I know they will be awesome with the Fisher 500C tube reciever I just bought and am having brought up to spec.

Now, I have to put my Cornwalls on Ebay for a local buyer for at least $700.

I am sooooo excited to be getting my dream speakers.

I can tell you right now, the vintage tubes sound so damn good with vintage Klipsch! I cant think of a more musical match... Yes, a SET amp will bring about increased resolution and better transparency along with the lowered noise floor; but I have to say that the soul of the music is VERY well served with a simple push-pull vintage unit with EL-84 or the like.

My EICO HF-81 is more fun than it has any right to be via my '77 Cornwall I; your Fisher 500C should be as well!

Sweet jobman! We'll need pics and a full report soon! Smile.gif

It's good that you were only a couple miles away so you could go look before using the buy it now feature. I hate when sellers put a picture of a new "whatever they are selling" instead of the actual item for sale. Real pictures are more comforting than ones copied from the manufacturers website.

My system thus far:

1980 Cornwalls (mains)

1990 Heresy II's (rears)

2001 KLF-C7 (center)

2001 KSW15 (Subwoofer)

HK AVR 510 (reciever - Going back soon!)

Kenwood DV402 (DVD)

Thanks. This board is just awesome for it wealth of information and ideas. From what I have learned here, it made it really easy to know what to look and listen for when I inspected the K-Horns.

BigBusa: Pics will come as soon as possible. (I had just finished taking pic of the Cornwall setup to post)

I was looking at a pair of K-Horns in L.A., but someone did the Buy it Now for $2100, and with these for $1600, I was not going to lose again. I was also watching a nice pair of Belles on Ebay, but they are now up to $1125, to close to the price of the K-horns, so it was a no brainer.

The WAF is also higher with these K-horns. She loves the sound of the Cornwalls, (as in, THEY ROCK!) but the K-horns will match our existing furniture better. (and they will ROCK even more!)

That'll unsettle the blighter - They were supposed to be mine. I mean I even had a buyer lined up for the kids and the cat for crying out loud!
