All of the usual suspects (World Wide Stereo, Crutchfield, Amazon & resellers, etc.) are blowing out the Reference II speakers (except for the RF-7II and RC-64II) for 40% off of MSRP.

Wow, those prices are good. I wonder if those prices will be the new normal or if they're for this weekend only...?

Size (i.e. woofer size) isn't the only difference. The RF-7II has a completely different (and significantly more sophisticated) compression driver compared to the other reference speakers (aside...

Call ASD or SD and you should be able to get that price on a new-in-box A-stock unit.

Hmmm -- your dealer might be blowing smoke. The RS-41II's are still showing as available for order directly through Klipsch's website (see screenshot below), so I have no idea why your dealer...

Alex, I find the description of the baffle improvements a bit disingenuous:

It's not like the Reference IIs have solid ABS front baffles -- rather, there's just an ABS trim piece over the MDF...

Considering the original MSRP on these was $600/each I'd be pretty satisfied with that (which amounts to $400 each). But given the current "regular" pricing of $480 each you might be able to do...

He's after the RS-62II's.

I'd go with either Sound Distributors or Acoustic Sound Design.

No argument there. I was just emphasizing the fact that the Sub-12, while no SVS, is still a helluva sub for $200. In fact, even the cheapest SVS is $600, and I wouldn't say that the SVS is three...

For three times the cost the SVS had damned well be better than the Klipsch! Given its modest cost, the Sub-12 isn't a bad sub at all. I've got one in my workout room paired with two Synergy B-3's...

Nope, they're 8 ohms nominal. They may dip below 8 ohms at certain frequencies, but almost any decent receiver can drive them to obscene volume levels without issue.

I understand Alex. Klipsch is still in a period of flux and while we're in the midst of that things will be a little weird.

I hope you realize that now that you, being a Klipsch employee and all,...

Conventional wisdom seems to be that DTS:X will be available as an upgrade for the X7200W because Denon's flagship receivers tend to be updated on a two-year cycle as opposed to every year as with...

I use RS-62II's for my rear surrounds because my back wall is reasonably close to my seating position and RB's wouldn't work very well. YMMV.

I was looking to upgrade to the X7200W immediately upon its release, but I'm now biding my time a little bit. For one, I want to wait until it ships with the HDCP 2.2 upgrade already installed. ...

Why don't you want to get the RC-62II? It'll match the best with your RF-82II's. The 450 with the new horn most definitely won't match.

I think the only things that might be coming later this year would be replacements for the RF-7II, RC-64II, RB-81II, and RS-62II. The first three models are still in the line-up for the foreseeable...
