The increase in prices is probably due to an increase in labor cost? These are hand made products...

Forte II's from the extended Heritage line were $700 each in the 90's when I got mine. Now they are $1800 each for new Forte III's. Will probably see price increase to $2K each in 2018, but still getting a pair eventually regardless. You get what you paid for with Klipsch Heritage, their price to performance and build ratio has always been outstanding IMO

If you have priced other top of the line speakers from JBL, B&W, Magico, Mcintosh, etc you will find Klispch Heritage is still a great bargain and worthwhile investment. When you get to this level of performance you have to realize there are costs involved. You just don't go out and buy top of the line at the drop of the hat. You should only have to buy your new Khorns and a nice pre-owned Belle or new La Scala just once. Its like buying a MC 275 with a MC 75 for the center, all you need to do is buy them once. If you have any reservations, don't!

Is there much interest in the Heritage line?

I am thinking about buying a pair for display in Cape Cod.

They are well built, dynamic, efficient but like with his hobby, budget and taste come into play.

I don't know what you are cry about. Have you priced JBL's DD67000, or Magicos S7 or new M6. B&W's aren't cheap either. How about Macs new 2.1k speaker at 130,000 a pair. Some of Sonus Fabers are over 100,000. How about MBL or Steinway Lyngdorf Speakers?. Let face it Klipsch still gives the best performance for the price. Even the latest Magnepans are $30,000 a pair. And they are very dynamically challenged. So hang in there. I can remember saving money and choosing between Concert Grands and Klipschorns, They were under a $1000 each back in 65.
