I had a pair of vintage Heresey II's that were really really good to me for about 10 years. They are really efficient (of course 'cause of the horn) and if you like the signature forward Klipsch sound youll like these.
I don't have Heresys but I do have Fortes. I love the sound and have been told the Heresys are very similar. But do I need to say that what I or anyone thinks will take a back seat to your opinion? Go to the Klipsch Forum and ask for an audition. Those guys are pretty cool.
I have a few clients out there with them. Two of them upgraded from $6000 high end speakers into them with small tube amps and they could not be more happy. Totally upgraded speaker. Better drivers, stiffer cabinet, upgraded crossover.
Not the most accurate speaker in the world, nor does it pretend to be. There are speakers with deeper bass and more resolution. What most of them miss is the sheer pleasure of listening the Heritage speakers bring to folks. They are FUN. They get the dynamics right. They give people a **** eating grin. There is a reason they've been in constant production so many years and a reason you haven't seen a single used pair of the new series out there. Klipsch sells all they build.
They are going up in price on Tuesday to $799 each. PM if you want a set at the old price.
