I was recently inspired by a friend to purchase a home audio system after seeing his new set up. His system is very basic (Yamaha RX-V367 and Klipsch HD Theater 500). His sounds great to me, as I am no audiophile. I have a decent background in car audio.
After becoming interested in this new home audio system I stumbled upon a deal that I would like some expert opinions on.
What is the deal?
$600 for the following:
(2) Klipsch RF-10
(1) Klipsch RC-10
(2) Klipsch RS-10
(1) Klipsch RW-10
This system was originally listed for $1000, then $800, and now $700 which I then talked the guy down to $600. He is very hesitant to sell it for this, and while he is still considering this price I wanted to make sure with you all that this would be a great deal for me.
Is this a real bargain, assuming that the speakers are in great used condition? He states they were purchased 2 years ago, and used for a little more than 1 year, which is when he upgraded.
My newbie research showed that this system could have retailed anywhere between $1300-$1700. I have seen nothing but excellent reviews for the above mentioned speakers. Please advise!
The speakers would likely be matched to a Yamaha RX-V367. The TV I have is a Samsung 37" 1080p 120hz LCD. The room is about 15'(d)x22'(w). Please let me know if you need any other specs of the application.
Thank you very much!
Do you like the sound of the speakers? For some, Klipsch horn tweeters can fatigue the ears.
That room is almost as large as mine and a single 12" sub didn't give me the performance I wanted. If you are coming from car audio, bass is usually where you guys are the hardest to satisfy.
