These new Klipsch Forte's were one of the best sounding speakers at CES.

Nice to see an improved Forte. I hope this means the Chorus III is next This is a great move from Klipsch.

Is that reasonable?

(I like them, but remember when the MSRP was $1085/pair)

- - saw an ad for one K-horn shipped = $6000

I'd might not get more than one tenth of 12,000 for my pair of 81 K-horn

Given the small remaining dealer base and niche market for such a product, the list price seems reasonable. Many loudspeakers targeting today's audiophile offer much less and cost much more.

At that price is it better than Golden Ear Triton? I would like a review by KR in Stereophile.

I found Klipsch also offers a $3600 version, and that they increased the dealer mark-up from when I was a dealer

I've not heard cones in the mids sound as good as the big new horns (as in the new Forte).
