Klipsch Reference RF-83 5.0 Speaker System

These guys have been my bread and butter for Netflix and gaming for about 15 years and they still sound fantastic.

The RF-83 speakers are an odd bird for Klipsch because the compression driver / horn is more laid back than the standard Klipsch speaker, so it's not as fatiguing as other speakers of theirs (a lot of people even say laid back). These could be the least Klipsch speakers they've put out, but the dynamics are still fantastic with plenty of boom / pow / etc as needed. The RC-64 center matches well (same approach to compression driver / horn), and the RS-62 speakers round it out well for surrounds. These are the high end of Klipsch's high end at the time.

These belong together, I'm not interested in selling these speakers outside of the full set.

Glowing Review for the system (except they have matching subs in review, I went DIY on that):

There's many more positive things said if you google forums for feedback.

Detail on the specific speakers:

This configuration was about $4400 back in the day.
I'm looking for $1500 OBRO (Or Best Reasonable Offer).

Anyone seriously interested is welcome to listen to the speakers first.

And no - the subwoofer is NOT for sale (I put it together myself, DIY, not for sale, but I can steer you in the right direction if you like it for doing similar...).

LOCAL PURCHASES ONLY / CASH ONLY / NO SCAMMERS PLS
