A Klipsch-horn was the first Hifi speaker I heard and my first Hifi Speaker was a Klipsch RF-3..one of the most exciting speakers i heard. Enjoy it...

Great buy elangoas.
Please post your impressions after initial break-in.

Thanks..Sure.. Will share in sometime..

Thanks.. Sure.. Bookshelf was from US, Center was from Netherlands..

Nope.. My friend who got the center, didn't carry any electronics with him, so naturally the customs officer can overlook him.. Actually duty is not required, since the center channel cost only 24K INR..

Looks fantastic... Would the bookshelves be your front or surround speakers?

Try to add the same speakers as surrounds, E. It would match and sound great. Timbre matching! And 5 channel stereo would be a killer!!!

Yes.. Sure.. That was the idea.. Having experienced Satellite / BS as surrounds and Dipoles, i like the idea of speaker angled to the listener.

The Klipsch RP 140SA



It is actually an Atmos Add on Speaker, but can also be wall mounted as regular surrounds..

Appreciate inputs on surrounds angled towards to the listener...

Bookshelf cost US$ 400 (27K INR) on amazon.com.. My friend was returning to India after a year's time.. So he had a limit to carry goods more than 75K per customs... If it is checked in as part of check in baggage, you will always skip the customs until & unless customs stop you for an enquiry..

The Center cost 389 Euro (29K INR) in Netherlands.. Since my friend was on a tourist VISA, has claimed a refund of 67 Euro (Wasn't aware of this).. So effectively 24K INR..Lucky to save an other 5K..:)

That's a monstrous Center Channel, I love the Sound Signature of Klipsch. The BS & surrounds look amazing too. Congratulations on your purchase, please update us with a review. Happy Listening.

The Klipsch are one hell of speakers. Great dynamic range from very little power. Fantastic bass too. Have fun.
