My Klipsch Forte IIIs are in perfect condition...with walnut finish. I am only selling to make room for the Klipsch La Scala IIs (walnut finish) I just bought from a seller on audiogon. I bought the Forte IIIs in November 2017 from a local dealer (brand new). I have the original boxes and associated packing materials. Absolutely no reason for you to buy new if you’re looking for Forte IIIs. I assure you that I take care of my stuff and will take great care with shipment (only within continental United States) or local delivery.
