    Beautiful speakers. Great collectible example from the first owner, who apparently cherish them.
    I see beaten down La Scalas too often, with scars and nicks all over, and very often in ugly black & grayish color.

    I love unfinished plywood Klipsch with Goldish / Amber cast.

    I just not sure if they turn goldish because of age? Or because they were lightly stained in some point of time?

    I attached photos of these beauties from Craigslist post.

    I bought a pair of pristine Khorns about 70 miles from there awhile back for $1000.00.

    $3K might be a bit high for those.

    AL crossovers are coveted? I thought they were the worst ones AL

    Nice but that would be a (puff puff) pass.

    $3k vs. the price of new doesn't seem too bad to me. Not that Id EVER sell my 'ugly' black Lascalas but I wouldn't even consider $3K. But, in all honesty, the only thing left to my Lascalas would be the original woofers. Everything else has been changed/modified.

    I kinda like the fact that they are all original too. ..Not big on all this modifying that goes on as I'm not convinced the speakers are being improved. If I were in the market for used Heritage Klipsch's, I definitely would be partial to units that haven't been tinkered with.

    Listen to a pair of La Scala that have original 35 year old caps in the crossovers, and then listen to a pair with good quality caps, and you will be convinced.
