Summary: I purchased a pair of Heresy II's in 1983, along with a Luxman receiver, a nice turntable, and a $275.00 CD player(hey, they'd only been pressing CD's a couple years). When my friends would audition my new system, they simply couldn't believe their ears! How in the HELL did all that sound come out of those small enclosures? One friend even smirked and did that face, you know, that condescending crap.
Summary: I bought a pair of Heresy II's back in the eraly 1980's...after about 8 years of use, I heard some rattling in the base...after further checking them out, I found the corners of the cabinets were becomming seperated by about 1/4 of an inch.! I took them back to the store that I prchased them from, and just asked to have them re-glued...they sent them back to the factory, and Klipsch said, this should have never happened!..
Summary: I've owned Heresy I, Heresy II, KG4 (with crites upgrade) and I must say with my mcintosh tube gear it all sounds great. However, I do prefer my II's over all of the others. They cover the highs and mid's in a spectacular way that all cone speakers cannot. The low end is a bit light in it's cycles, but 50 hz is where a good sub can assist and I plan to add one in the future.
Summary: The speakers sound great! I was pleased with the timely delivery. I decide to refinish the speakers and after striping them down to bare wood determined that the wood grain was different and match up for each speaker, but I'm still pleased with the end result. They sound and look great now!
Summary: They sound great using MC 225 amp through MX 112 Pre amp with a Numark Pro TT 1 Turntable aqnd a Zoom Multi Track Digital recorder CD player as sources in addition to the MX 112 AM/FM tuner. They look pretty darn good for Speakers that were buit in they seventies - or so. Price was reasonable. Shipping was high but packed very well.
