Summary: I just bought this speaker system after reading the reviews on here, and wow, what great sound. I am running them off of my new Sony receiver, and the sound through my Sony Blu Ray player with True HD is amazing.
Summary: Have only had the speakers for a couple weeks now so am technically still in the break-in period but with my past experience sound quality usually does not change drastically post break-in. Got these on sale and absolutely love the decision to purchase.
Summary: These speakers are quality. They look great and they deliver splendid sound. I have yet to test them out at really loud levels because Energy recommends a 50 hour break in period before cranking up the volume. But at normal volume levels the sound is exceptionally clear and crisp.
Summary: I was lucky enough to buy the Energy Take Classic 5.1 (Same speakers as these but w a subwoofer included) at a great price during Circuit City's going out of business clearance. Now I understand why[...] gave the Classic 5.1 a top rating & rave review.
Summary: I was looking for a decent entry level speaker set. I wanted them small so I can wall mount them. After checking some speaker site, I came across these energy speakers. I never heard of this brand, so i was kind of hesitant at first. After some research, I decided to buy this set.
Summary: I looked at Axiom, B&W, Klipsch, & Definitive Technology speakers first and at the $200.00/per speaker price I couldn't quite afford that. Although these can't produce the sound of the afore mentioned they do an exceptional job, and their price is just what I was looking for.
Summary: The positive reviews of this package are right on target. These speakers are nice when they work. However, I had very bad experiences with them. If only one or two speakers of the five broke, I would give it a 3 or 4 star rating. However, I had to send each and every one of them to service.
Summary: I've owned a number of Energy speakers over the last 10 years. I decided to go with the Take Classic due to now having samll kids and the big heavy bookshelf speakers I previously had were just to heavy and dangerous. Anyways, I went with the 5.0 as I already had a sub.
Summary: I was throughly impressed by the quality of these small speakers. They are great in fit, finish, and function. They look great and sound even better. They blew my 1 year old pioneer satellites out of the water in their sound reproduction.
