I'll see if I can audition them before buying. They appear to be in good shape from the pictures in the craigslist ad. Do they favor vinyl and tube amps or will a newer receiver sound good? I have a Denon AVRS in my HT and like the sound as compare to the Onkyo and Pioneers I've had in the past within the same price range.

To be completely honest I don't have much experience with Heritage speakers. They have quite the following but they're just so expensive if you buy them new. If those Heresy's are in good shape that's a killer deal. You better act quickly because I don't think they'll last long at that price.

Initial impressions before running Audyssey is they aren't nearly as bright/harsh with music. That was one of my complaints with the 82's. With some music Adele for instance they could become a bit fatiguing at higher volumes. That is definitely gone so I may scrap the separate 2 channel rig.
I am glad you like them and they squeeze into the space.
It's been over five years since I have done serious comparative listening but your description of the 7's vs the 82's is pretty much the way I have described the difference between the 83's and the 82's.
When the Reference II series hit the showroom my brother and I visited them and I was very impressed with the 7's. Not to the point of getting rid of the 83's but very impressed.

I never see my speakers nekked but that RC-64 sitting there in its birthday suit really grabs my attention.

Enjoy the new toys.

I've never personally heard the 83's but from everything I've read they compare favorably with the 7's. Some even seem to prefer them over the 7's when the main preference is a musical application. The 7's are definitely an upgrade over my 82's in every way. The front stage is purdy to look at with the grills off but I only did that for the pics. You sound like the upgrade bug is itching and needs to be scratched. RC-64 II?

From time to time I itch for the RC-64, but the space it has to fit into is no bigger now than it was when I settled on the RC-62.
The PS3 lives on one side of the center channel and ROKU, network switch, HDD live on the other side.

Sounds like an easy fix to me. New entertainment center?

Man, I've been away too long! JBRAX, love the new speakers! Welcome to the club! I watched The Fast and the Furious tonight on the 7's and 64 tonight, and what a "Furious" soundtrack! These speakers just reproduce everything so effortlessly. The play so nice with my PB13 Ultra, that I think they were made for each other.
