I don't know how many Klipsch "fanatics" frequent Audiogon but I do own and enjoy many flavors of Klipsch.
I have heard several Klipsch speakers over the years and I always thought them to be a little too bright, even harsh for my tastes. I recently purchased a pair of Klipsch RP-160M speakers. These are
6 1/2 inch 2-way monitors.The 160Ms are current production and originally retailed at $540 and have been reduced to $440. About $100 less than the original 685s, making them somewhat equivalent budget wise. As with many, they can be found discounted.
I am in the process of making comparison with my B&W 685s as driven by an NAD 326BEE integrated (my secondary system). As of yet I have only made comparison outdoors w/o room boundary effects. I also plan on making this comparison in my dedicated audio room with my main system. Please allow me to get back to you on this.
