I keep wondering why Klipsch is selling those off at about 1/2 price. Do they have something else in the works or just quitting the more expensive stuff to concentrate on pedestrian surround sound and their "Heritage" Heresy/Cornwall/LaScala/Klipschorn products.

System includes KEF R500 floor standing, R200C center, R100 surrounds, SVS SB2000 subwoofer, NAD T758 receiver, Pro-Ject RPM1 turntable w/ Sumiko Pearl cartridge, Bluesound Vault, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer, MCS System cassette deck. The last 2 items are dust collectors but will work if asked.

I have seen some speculation as to what Klipsch is doing on other forums. That is what most seem to think, is that they are closing out the Palladium line. I always wanted a pair but could not afford them at their regular price. When they dropped to half price, I jumped on the deal.

ThePalladiums are very good sounding speakers. I used to have e pair of Klipsch KG5.5 before I had the B&Ws. In fact, that was why I changed out the B&Ws is because I miss the sound I was so used to from running the KG5.5 for 21 years with my old Adcom GFA 5500 power amp and Adcom pre amp. I loved they way they sounded and going to the b&Ws, they just sounded shrill to me. I do not posses all the savy audio lingo to describe the differences between the B&Ws and the Palladiums, but WOW pretty much sums it up.

Joined long time ago but posting now. At the beginning I had JBL Northridge E series system with E80 towers EC25 center and E10 surrounds running with Denon AVR-1507 then replaced Denon with Harman Kardon AVR-255 which gave me lots of improvement in bass and overall better sound quality. And 3 years so sold Northridges and replaced them with Studio 5 system (Studio 530 for front, Studio 520 central and Studio L810s for surround) and wow what a difference!! Everything became so much more detailed and open like I haven't been listening to music before. The only thing I couldn't find is matching sub (Studio 550) and got BK XLS200 275watt sub instead which is aslo a very musical sub. Everything now running with Harman Kardon AVR-255 with multichannel in form Oppo BDP-95, also front channels powered by NAD C326BEE with direct in from HK.

Onkyo and Klipsch owner

Hello everyone. I updated my Home Theater system last Black Friday from

Onkyo TX-DS555
Fisher STV-410 M - 3 way Floorstanding 10 inch Fronts. (They were on sale in the Early 90's)
Infinity CC-1 Center
Infinity Bookshelf Speakers - RS1 Surrounds
Infinity BU-80 Sub

To:

Onkyo TX-NR646
Klipsch R-26F Fronts
Klipsch R-25C Center
Klipsch R-15M Surrounds
Onkyo SKH-410 Atmos Add Ons
Klipsch R-10SW Sub

I love my new system. Still calibrating the system for the best sound for my room. Klipsch speakers are easy to run. My receiver does not get hot at all.

Klipsch Reference series are easy on receivers, that true.

Easy on ears....not to a good number of people. You're the one who has to be happy though, so congratulations.

I'm running all Sinclair Audio speakers, their Brighton line:

4 x 460T
2 x 50B
1 x 25CC
1 x 310S

It works well enough for me. I would always like more bass from the sub, but it's good enough that my wife complains about it constantly, so I must be doing something right I figure. It's a pretty nice setup though, I'm not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination, but it's good clear sound and the bass has oomph behind it.
