    It was recommended in an earlier thread that I audition the Klipsch RF-7 series. Apparently, they are discontinued, but still available... The dealer told me the RF-82 series is comparable...Her is the email in a nutshell:


    I confirmed that the RF-7 line of loudspeakers is discontinued. There is limited availability of the RF-7 and RC-7, but no RS-7 (the surround speakers) are available.



    Pricing on what is available is as follows:



    Speaker
    MSRP
    Your Cost

    RF-7 floorstanding loudspeakers: available in Black, Cherry, and Maple
    $1049 each
    $899 each

    RC-7 center channel, available in black or cherry
    $649 each
    $579 each




    If you need a recommendation for a compatible surround speaker, I would suggest the RS-62 surround, available in black for $479 each.



    There are no guarantees the discontinued units will be available, so acting quickly is the safest way to ensure getting the product.



    Based on our brief conversation, I would like to recommend the following setup, which feature current products.



    Klipsch RF-82 Home Theater

    Speakers
    MSRP
    Your Cost

    RF-82 floorstanding speakers
    $499 each
    $469 each

    RC-62 center channel speakers
    $449 each
    $399 each

    RS-62 surround speakers
    $499 each
    $479 each

    I would buy Klipsch Legend speakers if you can find them.

    I'm wondering if the 82's are comparable to the RF-7 Series.

    Price listed includes set up, delivery and removal of packaging. He said he would take off 25 dollars per speaker if I pick them up which totals to 125 dollars in savings for a 35 minute trip

    Do you have a way to audition each one?

    the guy says he can get the RF-7s but he has the 82s setup in store. I will be in the erie area this weekend and am going to listen to the Paradigms again while the Klipsch's are still fresh in my mind

    I will be using Private Ryan and Journey's One Night in Houston as reference discs...may also bring along Pulse or Zoo TV.

    Basically the RF-7s are twice as much...So I am guessing that teh 82 Series is less speaker than I am looking for.
