A dealer I know very well says the fit and finish on the new sealed Khorns doesn't match up with the 70 reissue or the pair he owns from the late 90's.

Wow. That is surprising.

Hmmm, this is really surprising cause the 70th Anniversary is just not too long ago. On the contrary, the AK6 should be made even better as its the product that will carry them onwards till the 80th Anniversary Edition being released.

Plus, this is one bad ass speaker that goes beyond the 20k Hz ... not something I can hear (mine probably 16kHz at most), but surely, the "feel" of the extra KHz would be nice to have (though may not be heard, I speak for myself).

Is it just the pair your dealer have that exhibits this workmanship flaw? Cant be the whole line in production. Klipsch quality control can't be that bad after the 70th Anniversary. Thats my point of view.

An acquaintance of mine went to see the kornerhorns that don't have to be placed in corners and he says the fit and finish is just not the same as the older K-horns. But that you'll have to judge for yourselves. Early production units can be less than perfect, no matter who builds them. I still say the two sets of Rosewood K-horns we sold were the prettiest Klipsch. speakers I have ever seen. And a Paragon is mighty impressive, but didn't compare.
