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!
