No word yet on pricing. I'll bet maybe a 5-10% msrp increase, maybe they'll stay the same price. Still a long way from the Palladium pricing, at least Palladium msrp.

The RF-7III's look and no doubt sound great but I still very much love my RF-7II's and have no plans of upgrading soon...eventually down the line...I likely will.

i don't have plans to change mine either.. the newer rf-7iiis look nice but something about the black front and wood veneer mix that doesn't look good.. well it's just my thoughts..

I really had to work to finally get up to rf-7ii/64ii's, so to upgrade and take probably a significant loss $ wise in the process will be out of the question for me. I wonder how many took the $ hit and upgraded from the 82ii to the rp280. I'm assuming very few justified the $ loss worth the upgrade. Any opinions?


I went from 82ii's to the 7ii's so I saw more of an upgrade for the $$ imo

If you are really happy with your current 7IIs there is no reason to upgrade. You have a really nice speaker. I'm perfectly happy with my RP280s and don't see a reason to upgrade anytime soon just so I have have something newer. The sound is perfect to my ears as it is.

Hey guys,

I have an older Klipsch set in my home theater room. I have KLF-20's for my 2 front mains and a KLF C-7 center. Older surrounds I will have to check when I get home. I run 2 sunfire subs.

Speakers have to be close to 20 years old. They still sound great but I have been looking around at newer Klipsch stuff.

What do you guys think would be in the same size/sound/price as of today if I wanted to start listening to some new Klipsch speakers?

Thanks.

Brian

I would like to see or know more details about the horn placed in the RF7III and RC64III (not the rubber siding), and what exactly it's producing that's an improvement over the existing unit. Am I misreading it and it's just referring to the rubber?

IMO the RF7ii's look way better. No regrets

Edit: I should be more clear - the RF7 III's look great, but I prefer the II's because of the all around cherry veneer. Looks a bit classier is all.

Also really interested in hearing more about The Sixes. Need to replace my music only system speakers that are attached to my PC

For full disclosure, I'll admit I'm not terribly familiar with the KLf/RF/BBF and ZF speaker lines (I've only owned Heritage my entire life)

That said, why would you replace something with something of similar size? My experience has been, in the world of Klipsch, it gets better as you go bigger.

New for the sake of new, doesn't always mean better. (I'd put my 38 year old LaScalas up against many of these smaller speakers and feel they'd hold their own)

Now, Palladiums would be a worthy upgrade! I've been around, but have been spending more time on the Sony 940c thread. Went to 4k with the Sony and an Oppo 203, so been dialing that in. Once I added the 7 II's, my upgraditis with speakers has gone away. One of the best speakers I've ever heard and I'm still amazed when I watch movies I've seen multiple times, but my first time with the 7's. I hear details I've never heard before and it's a lovely experience.

I'm still curious as to what Klipsch will recommend as matching surrounds / bookshelves for the new RF-7III/RC-64III system. The current TOTL RP bookshelves / surrounds aren't quite up to the level of the RS-62II / RB-81II.

Also, I like the plinth that the new speakers have (like the rest of the RP line), but I hope they don't have any backward tilt. The tilt is perfect for my RP-260Fs but it'd make my RF-7s beam right over my head.

Of course, the RF-7II's outriggers are even better than the plinth.

I recommend you use any Klipsch speaker you like for surrounds.

Looking at the ces video it does appear that the new R7III plinth is exactly like RP line which the speaker has upward angle. I could be wrong but it looks that way.

It has a 2 degree slant just like RP line.

You know I didn't even notice my RP280s had a slant til my wife told me when she was dusting the speaker. Told me why I had something under the speaker to angle it up since the tweeter is already above our ears. After reading threads I see it made that way with the slant. What are the obvious reasons for the slant? Only reason I can think of is for home theater for back row so the sound can reach further into the room? Either way, slant or no slant I find my rp280s very good sounding and enjoy them much more than my axiom audio m60s which is in another room.

is the palladium line better than the ref line? I know it has more exotic wood finishes and looks more high end but how is the sound compared to the ref 7s? If someone were to purchase palladium line vs new r7III and has same pricing I would assume they would get the palladiums? Or maybe they will come out with new palladiums as well?

I don't know the reason why the RP line has the slant, I wasn't involved in that project or its decisions. I can say some people use it to help time align the tweeter to the woofer section in some cases. Sometimes it is used to keep the slight off axis response in line with the ear for various reasons, matching the power response of an LF section is one example. In some cases there is the just plain aesthetics reasons.
