Great speaker, excellent value posted on 07/12/2014
|I have a pair of these and have played them in 3 homes. They sound great in all 3. Paired mine with a Cayin MA-88T integrated amp; wonderful with it.
These speakers are a great value, 2 reasons: 1. They sound great. There are better speakers out there, no doubt. However, there probably aren't better 7k$ full range (OK, nearly full range) speakers. I think part of this is has to do with the boxy design. These are not the prettiest speakers but we don't listen with our eyes. Your $ pays for great sound, not pretty.
2. Because they are horns they are VERY efficient. The Cayin is far more powerful than it needs to be, even in ultra linear. This means less $ on amplification and still get rock concert levels (also great at acoustic level). Bass horns are not as placement sensitive. I have used them only inches from the wall to great effect. No bloated bass in small rooms!
They image well. Properly set up you will have a great sweet spot to "watch" the band.

|I have heard this speaker at the Klipsch engineering lab in Hope Arkansas. Being an owner of both home and industrial versions of the earlier LaScala speakers I was already a fan.
Klipsch has upped the ante this time, with heavy 1" MDF in the bass bin to tame cabinet vibrations and help propel low bass notes forward. Horn is the venerable 400 Hz cutoff for a very musical soundstage and the K77 tweeter is also upgraded as is the crossover network. This is a monster speaker with 104 db/watt efficiency rating and very capable of handling peaks of 200 watts. Fantastic sound for critical stereo listening or Home Theatre useage.
The furniture grade cabinet, previously available only in unfinished birch, black or industrial varieties, has been given a beautiful real wood veneer treatment for placement in the home environment. For easy movement, the top section is removable, and the LS sports a new riser base.
Well done Klipsch!
