They looked OK from the outside — the cabinets and veneers were in decent shape with no gouges or chips, only some water damage. The grilles were complete but the weave was sagging. Inside drivers in both cabinets looked complete and untouched. I purchased the set from a nice older gentleman who had bought them new along with a wheezy Pioneer SX receiver. For some reason he held on to the receiver, however.
The 12 Most Significant Loudspeakers of All Time
Speakerholic: KLH Model 17 Speakers
A few months ago, I found these sad KLH 20 speakers in the corner of an almost cleaned-out estate sale. As I walked in, someone was already walking out with a very nice-looking Dual model turntable and I heard from the guy running the sale that a pair of KLH Model 12s and a KLH Model 20 stereo amplifier and turntable had also already walked out the door. KLH Model 20 speakers. The 20s were only sold as part of a proprietary system along with a turntable and amplifier. Period advertisements show them on matching space-age stands, which could be configured to stand together in a floating console-look system or arrayed around a room for better stereo dispersion. The 20s are still collectible, especially as a system. I wondered why someone would walk out with the amplifier and turntable, but without the speakers.
KLH Raises the Bar
Free shipping. Condition is Used. Cabinets are decent speakers are good.
By stupidhead , March 4, in KLH. I have been poking around in these forums for a while, and now looking for a little input from those in the know. I used to own a pair of 17s back in the day as a matter of fact. My question is is there a pecking order for the KLH line. For example in ARs we have the AR 3a considered to be the most revered of the vintage floor standers.
