Can someone who is familiar with these help me know why these are worth that much (yes I have to be that guy, but maybe someone else wants to know too)

you obviously know the best speakers out there, so why don't you put your money where your mouth is and post great deals on them.


it's nice to sit and comment from the peanut gallery while offering no actual sustenance except for trashing the threads...

I'll second this. I went toured the factory in Hope, AR where these are still being made a couple of weeks ago and it was awesome to see a high quality product still being made in the US.

Odd name, but it's made in USA which is very uncommon for electronics.

Anyone have any thoughts on the amp? I've been considering getting a pair of Heresys but I'm still not sure what amp to pair them with. This seems like a decent deal though.

Also been debating on whether to get the Heresy III now or wait on the new Fifteens that Klipsch debuts at CES this year.

Love tube music. I have a Cary Audio SLA-70 tube amp, Melos Preamp, and Vandersteen 2ci speakers. Amazing stage presence If you have a chance, listen to Kristen Vigard (1988) album -- it is amazing.

The amp reviews very well (http://www.tonepublications.com/r...retro-50/) ... and sells for $1500 on it's own, (Amazon, Adorama, etc..) and the speakers run $1000 EACH.

So yea, $2k for $3500 worth of kit is a pretty good price IF this is your thing.
