In this boring video full of talk LM 845 integrated amp with Klipsch Heresy III made a unpleasant hot treble to my ears:

The Heresy III’s I heard had that exact amp and they were wonderful. Like Steve says in that video, warm and smooth but also with engagement that’s off the charts. Excellent match of amp/speaker.

Do you could prefer the RF83 or RF63? (they are two way)

I have Heresy III's driven by a LM 218ia. Superb combination... much like what Tommy describes in his post. FWIW, I'd probably never use (or trust) the audio output from a YouTube video to make any sort of product evaluation.
