Summary: I have long been a fan of Cambridge Soundworks and Klipsch for my speaker needs. I wasn't able to find anything at Cambridge Soundworks that I liked, and I really didn't want to spend $1,500 on my game room for speakers and a receiver.
Summary: Had these for about a week so far. Hooked up to my Onkyo NR509 with 14 gauge RCA speaker wire. They play together really well. Great sound! The speakers were much smaller than i had expected (which is a good thing). Also glad that the center channel is designed to lay horizontally.
Summary: People are going to think I am crazy but here goes nuthin'...I had to liquidate my $20K plus system which included DefTech Super Towers x 4, two Carver subs, DefTech Mythos One surround back speakers and a DefTech Mythos 9 center. All of this was driven by a Pioneer top of the line SC-09TX receiver.
Summary: I love these speakers! I can not believe the incredible sound we get from these little Energys! I labored over reviews for a few weeks trying to decide on a really good set of speakers that wouldn't break the bank. These Energy 5.1 Take Classics fit the bill!
Summary: I used to own a Samsung HTIB that I thought had decent sound. Was I ever wrong. I never knew anything about DTS:HD-MA until I hooked these Take Classics to my Pioneer VSX-1020-K receiver. The first movie that I watched was 3:10 To Yuma which has an excellent soundtrack, and audio track.
Summary: Recently purchased the Energy 5.1 Take Classic for my newly purchased Denon AVR 1911 receiver and new Sony Blu Ray player. WoW! At first I was going to put off all purchases because I could not afford the much more expensive speakers that I wanted to buy (Focal Domes).
Summary: At first I was concerned about how the piano black finish would look but once I received it I was impressed. They have a classy gloss appearance which actually makes them look more expensive in my opnion. The speakers feel like they are well constructed and have a very good weight.
Summary: I had owned a Sony HTCT-100 sound bar for several months and while it was satisfactory. I wanted something that could produce a decent sound i.e. 5.1 at an affordable price and was highly rated.
Summary: You read the subject right! 7 channel surround sound. I bought the Take Classic 5.1 set off Amazon and thought the sound was so completely amazing that I was able to contact Energy and purchase two additional satellite speakers. I currently run a 7.1 system (including two front "height" speakers.
