Summary: Simply amazing sound. PERIOD. When you consider their size... mind-boggling. Best book shelf speakers I've ever heard, and as I read somewhere, they're kind of mini monitors because the rear port makes them better if they're not jammed in a corner.
Summary: I've both these little bookshelfs and my Synchrony One B's and they hold up very well against the PSB's in my smallish living room. The Energys have a very sweet tonal balance if a little on the warm side on some material and that's why they'll distinguish themselves best when place on stands.
Summary: Easily one of the best speaker purchases I've ever made. I was very impressed with the build quality of these speakers. The cabinets are very solid and they look good too. 5-way gold binding posts accommodate bi-amping or bi-wiring, but I just use the bottom set of terminals.
Summary: Although these speakers are no longer available I would like to say how fantastic they sound. The break in period that Energy recommends is a fact. They tend to open up with a clarity that is great. I purchased these through Amazon which was filled by Vanns. Both have been great in my experience.
Summary: I am by no means an audiophile but I will say that these speakers have been more than enough for my music and movie needs. I use them in a 5.1 setup with an Energy S10.3 sub and they sound great. They are wonderful for music. I particularly enjoyed listening to Jack Johnson En Concert on them.
Summary: I bought these along with a to use with my iMac instead of computer speakers. I absolutely love them. The sounds produced by these speakers are clear, crisp and not bothered with harmonics. An amplifier with about 100w RMS per channel into 8 ohms is about right for these.
Summary: For this review, I would like to concentrate on the so-called "break in period" for these little beauties; the previous reviewers comments on amazing bass, clarity and smooth tweeter response all still apply - they really are a RIDICULOUS BUY for $200.00: If I had to do it all over again, I would...
