I didn't know we even had electricity 500 years ago.

They didn't, that's what makes the Klipsch design noteworthy. It took years to figure out how to make the monolith speak.

I figured they were not readily available from retailers.

"Now available for purchase direct from Klipsch.com (US residents only)! Klipsch Heritage Series products are built to order, handmade in the US at our Hope, Ark. manufacturing facility. Please allow approximately 4 weeks turnaround"

Sounds to me like you have to order them, so not really true retail, but I guess a few upper end stores might carry a set.

Yeah, the living room is pretty empty. We like it more or less tidy. No, I haven't heard the klipsch speakers in my environment. I'm also afraid that they could be a little too bright in my living room, but there's just one way to find out, I guess.

I've only seen them at one shop so I do imagine they are very limited.

Rick,
No need to give up the M80s. Boy have I got a deal for you on a mint pair of Cornwalls that I have owned since new. My wife has been 'suggesting' for years how she'd love more space in our living room! (of course the 73" DLP takes a bit of room too ;o) They will be replaced with M80s or M60s. (both will arrive here in about a week along with VP150 and 4 QS8s :o)

You wanna trade them M80s? ;\)





They would make a killer pair of back 7.1's! \:D

Dave, if they were really the Klipshorns I would indeed. Those in the pics are not them.

Ah, but Randy said "retail sold Klipsch speakers" those don't count.

15" drivers, holy, those would give the A1400 a workout.

I got some 15" drivers for ya, Jay.
