Summary: I bought these speakers four years ago, and and and still love them. I have have run them of of 3 different amps and they have have done great on the biggest pioneers to the smallest lepai. Beautiful sound, and works for all genres of music.
Summary: I picked out a set of these, over the Definitive Tech Studio Monitors, of the same size and wattage. I spent a long time comparing them side by side, I truly liked them better than the DefTechs. (and over the Polk's, Klipsch's, Martin Logan, & B&W too..
Summary: I took me 4 months and many listening sessions to pull the trigger on these. I am very familiar with the Energy Take 5s as I've owned 2 sets. For the price, they have exceeded my expectations. I'm using for a home theater set up so they work perfectly.
Summary: I recently purchased the Take Classic 5.1 system and was blown away by the crystal clear highs, warm yet fast bass and wonderful definition of mid-tones that system put out. I then decided to upgrade the center speaker to the CC-10 to help out music playback and give movies a little more punch.
Summary: I have had a set of the CB-5 Energy speakers for about a year now and those little puppies are great. Which is why I purchased these without even listening to them. I am (not surprisingly) very happy. These CB-20 speakers are really great.
Summary: As a treat, I wanted to upgrade my PC monitors from my old scrappy Wharfedale Diamonds 6. So I picked up a pair of these well constructed bookshelf speakers which are getting great reviews. I tried them out on my home theatre rig and they sounded pretty good. They do sound a bit dark.
