Klipsch Heresy II UK Review


The Klipsch Heresy was announced in 1957 which means it has been in production for 60 years. Then version II was released in 1985 and Heresy III was around 2006. This review is for the Heresy II. It isn't often I agree with a review never mind read one but this was sent to me and it is spot on. 

More on the History of the Heresy here http://www.klipsch.com/heresy-history

Altec Voice Of The Theater Ad

Really vintage Voice Of The Theatre ad. Could this be a foreign advert since they spelled Theatre re?

Mag Lev Audio Turntable

I don't post new stuff very often but this is cool. A magnetic levitation platter turntable. I have a lot of questions but the cool factor alone makes me want one. The price is not going to be prohibitive as the price should be around $1500. I'm not crazy about the project arm but hey the price is right and the freaking thing levitates.

Check out some of the propaganda. 

Worlds first levitating turntable

How to use.

Demo.

Junior Marvin Police And Thieves

I've posted this before but I don't care because Junior Marvin was one of the best vocalist ever. The Clash as MC Hammer would say can't touch this.

Polysics Turns 20

One of my favorite bands. We have traveled many miles to see them live. Live shows are better than their albums which is hard to do.

Klipsch Museum Of Audio History Donations Needed

Ok friends I have never run ad campaigns or tried to sell anything on itishifi.com even though everyone tells me I should monetize this site. I am a trustee of the Klipsch Museum Of Audio History and my wife is on the executive board. We are a certified 501c3 non profit organization. This past weekend Voxx International and Klipsch donated the original Klipsch factory building including artifact collection of PWK and the massive paper archives of PWK to our museum association. These archives are not just Klipsch related but every industry pioneer from the golden age of Hi-Fi.  To get to the point the building needs some work and we are looking at foundation and HVAC work. This is expensive and we are on a minimal budget starting out. Donations are greatly appreciated.
We would appreciate any donation you can afford. Every donation counts. 





THANK YOU

Here is an older video of the museum much has changed but it is a great window into the museum. Once on a sound financial footing we have many exciting plans moving forward.
