  2. That may be what they did for "web" purposes, but perhaps not. My Forte IIIs (in walnut w/ black grilles 'cause momma said) sure look extremely close like that, too, in real life. Just get the stock walnut setup. You won't care one whit about the grille color once you've got them up and running. And do yourself a real favor by having Cory ship them to you new. He just might could customize the grilles, too.

  5. Just what I need ... more speakers. Must ... resist ...
  6. https://stlouis.craigslist.org/ele/d/saint-louis-klipsch-horns-corner/6873823576.html I'm so tempted, but I'm fresh out of storage space, drivers, and don't feel like building a top hat or veneering.
  7. Today
  8. The distressed oak Forte and the California black walnut comes with Lambs wool grills ask Cory if he has any of those.
  9. Try calling Cory he may be able to get you the ones with lambs wool grills or at least a discount on the Forte's.
  10. Yea and then some people get bent out of shape when they call Bob Crites for parts.....You would think they woud sell a Klipsch owner any parts he needs. I see the reason for having a serial number thats a reasonable request to prove you have a product.

    Was already on my knees giving thanks this a.m. after seeing your email when I woke up this morning. Hope you can get some rest now, too, Steve. Lots of folks one their way to Hope for the weekend, but we have the THE Hope! Thank your Jesus! Bruce
  13. Agreed. Somehow everything is a little better when on the water. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Very nice room by the way. Sometimes simple little rigs do the trick. Enjoy. Bill
  15. During the years, I have come to realise that what I am looking for in a speaker is not ultimate details, deeeeep bass or Concert level sound pressure. The Heresies are very dynamic and lifelike. There is a presence to the sound that resonates with my ears. Currently they are resting on the TV console and that places them just a bit to high for the tweets to be more at ear level. I hope that lowering them on custom stands is going to do help creating a stronger 3D illusion, which is one of the traits that I value in a speaker. (the small Tanbergs in the photo excel in this but lack the snap the Hereires have.) Amplification curtesy of this little gem. EL84 push pull VA-One by QUAD
  16. Current list of tweaks 1. sanded down and oiled up with 1-3 turp oil ration 2. new 2uF sonicaps installed 3. Tweets Crites CT120s 4. Swapped back with 3/4 plywood and installed more user friendly terminals 5. no plans to change woof or k55...yet 6. move from temporary placement by TV and build appropriate stands playing sweet music now
  17. Asked the same question but got an answer. $450.00 for the lambs wool grills from he factory. I'll pass at that price.

    Excellent news Steve. I hope for the best for your Brother. The power of positive thinking is very powerful.
  19. any more info on these?????
  20. For months I've been trying to find Klipsch Forte IIIs in any darker wood (e.g. walnut, rosewood) but with the lighter grilles such as lambswool (beige). It's no trouble finding the speakers but the beige grilles are rare as hens' teeth. So the simple solution, I figured, would be to buy walnut speakers on the aftermarket and then source the grilles from the factory. But when I've tried corresponding with Klipsch to determine availability and pricing they won't discuss it with me until and unless I can supply them with serial numbers. Advice? Look at these pages--they just reversed the image to demonstrate veneer 'bookmatching' https://www.klipsch.com/products/forte-iii https://www.klipsch.com/products/cornwall-iii-special-edition-rosewood
  21. I used to work with a guy who'd owned a Harley, a BMW, and a Gold Wing. He told me each bike was a pretty good machine that he'd been happy with. He also said that each one had its own cult following, and each one looked down on the other two. He found all of it amusing.

    Thought i’d violate my forum ban and let you all know that my brother had successful cancer surgery today. It was an eight hour ordeal; but, they managed to save 1/3 of his Esophagus and tested areas around where they cut out the tumor and they have tested clean. He’s in ICU for a few days, then a week in a regular room. Feeding tube for a month or so ... but alive. Surgeons and hospital staff were top notch! The hospital is a magnet hospital and that clearly is evident in the care he has received. I praise Jesus for answering my prayer and the prayers of many, many others ... some of you included. Thank you. My brother is quite a likable guy and the support has been inspiring -- i’m happy that he’s loved by so many. Praying that the tissues meld together nicely, that there are no leaks, and no infections. Since you were notified of this situation when I found out, i wanted to let you know that the outcome looks great. Alright ... time to go away again. Peace. Steve oh yeah ... i hope you all are doing super good.
  23. Wow those look absolutely stunning. What I wouldn't give.....
