These legendary speakers came to us with some cosmetic issues. There were scratches on just about every surface as the Cherry finish is rather soft, and unfortunately the former owner/moving crew was careless.

We spent a good deal of time working on these to clean them up, and eventually got both speakers looking very presentable especially at a 3 foot distance. Upon close inspection you can still see the scratches at a specific angle.

The inconsistency you see in the grills was created by the camera, they are both near perfect.

Functionally they are perfect and were well tested in our shop. All drivers work as they should and crossovers are intact.

These are my favorite Klipsch speakers (other than the Jubilees of course) and produce the most realistic music I have ever heard.

Don't be fooled by the low bass response specification, these can rattle the windows in your house mostly due to the folded horn designs and huge woofer.

Stereophile just gave these a class A rating in their latest issue which will surely create high demand.

We cannot publish the price so please call if you're interested. Expect a nice discount - but not a fire sale.

From the new Stereophile review by Alex Halberstadt:

“The Klipsch La Scala has been in constant production for 59 years, longer than all but a tiny handful of audio products, and this is surely not an accident. They aren’t perfect, and they require a large room and a suitable amplifier, but they offer the closest thing I’ve heard to a musical performance taking place in my home. They do this as reliably with a solo violin as they do with Minor Threat. Best of all, they provide as direct a route as I’ve found to hours of musical engagement—to emdoying what some Samuka -san described as “endless energy with sorrow,” to which I would add love, rage, humor, and elation. $13,198 is an investment, but it will buy you one of the world’s most sonically irrepressible and musically communicative speakers. It just may sustain you for life.”

The SkyFi Testing Process for Speakers:

Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.

After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.
