Its like looking at a car and knowing its limits without even driving it. Same thing.
I'm not sure of this analogy but are you saying I'm NOT going to be able to pick up K-horns, Lascalas and RF-7IIs on ebay for cheap when owners liquidate their old speakers and purchase the new?
Just kidding but OT praise aside, this very well could become the "Klipsch Bashing Thread," when their new lines come out and that could be uncomfortable for the AVS Forum and their sponsors...I've followed Klipsch for quite some time and will say with the internet, internet-direct, and steep competition, speakers in this price range aren't going to be "upgrades" to previous models but should still be a good bang-for-your buck at the various price points...
Then again, I could be wrong and there could be improvement all of the way down the line and if we want Klipsch to remain a viable company not prejudge comparable models, although I have no problem folks exposing information that doesn't ring true. After all, we all know that the original RF-7s are better than those crappy ol' RF-7IIs.
Btw, I don't have a vested interest in VOXX, but there really are some artisans that work in Hope, Ar and I would like to see them keep making speakers. My 2 cents, and of course y'all do whatever you want.
