    That LG Cinebeam looks interesting. Still haven't seen any reviews for it. (Hint, hint, Jerry.)

    True 4K at $2500.

    Richard, do you have any first-hand experience with any of the older Klipsch "legacy" speakers? If so, what are your thoughts about them for a two-channel setup?

    Forte vs La Scala vs Heresy...

    Tracy,

    Sorry, no experience with the much older Klipsch speakers.
    I remember you writing that Klipsch speakers were too bright for your music taste, but better suited for movies.
    Quite a while ago, I remember seeing a demo of a Klipsch speaker, the size of a dishwasher, being driven by a small handheld transistor radio.

    I don't remember making that exact statement, but I don't remember what I had for breakfast some days.

    I do remember saying that horn drivers can have a distinctive sound and that it might not be for everyone. I ask since I recently heard a rather large pair of Altec studio monitor speakers that used horns for the tweeters and mids. I was very impressed with the sound and that has me wanting to hear more horn loaded designs.

    I have a pair of Realistic Mach Ones at my parent's house that I need to dig out. They too have horn tweeters and mids and I remember my teen self loving those speakers but I suspect it had more to do with the 15-inch woofers.

    As for your Klipsch dishwasher-sized speaker, I suppose it could have been a Klipschorn https://www.klipsch.com/products/kli...anding-speaker

    or the Cornwalls, https://www.klipsch.com/products/cor...anding-speaker

    or La Scalas, https://www.klipsch.com/products/la-...anding-speaker

    I was paraphrasing a comment by you cicra 2009, maybe earlier. On a good day, my memory is similar to your breakfast comment. I remember your comment since it came just after I had purchased the Klipsch package. I don't listen to music in the home theater so your comment was a non-player. Listening to music in my home theater, while sitting in a recliner, would put me to sleep.

    The Klipsch I was referring to was a Klipschhorn with a much larger base and not pretty. It had the largest horn I had ever seen, filling the front of the cabinet. The back of the horn was tiny.

    Most all of those horn drivers are crazy efficient. Give them the tiniest bit of clean power and they can make your ears bleed.
