Summary: Well To start things off me and my wife are getting ready to move...My home theater consists of paradigm center and rear surrounds, four foot advent tower speakers, and an acoustic research 12" subwoofer...These speakers have a very LARGE sound, and they should because of their size..
Summary: When I oppened the package I tought they were just a tyny set of speakers and considered my self cheap, they are still on the break in period so I don't turn the volume all the way now, Yesterday I saw a movie at moderate level and I can tell you I hear stuff that I didn't before and I can now tell...
Summary: These speakers sound amazing both for music and for movies. They have very crisp treble and a full, warm midrange. Coupled with the Energy ESW-8HG subwoofer, the bass blended perfectly with the satellites to provide a very well-balanced sound.
Summary: The speakers are great looking. Looking forward to listening to them when I get a new receiver. Old receiver died. Must save to get new receiver. Got them because most reviews rated them very good for the price. I do not think I will be disappointed.
Summary: I researched various brands of Speakers when my wife told me that she wanted to get me a new set for Christmas. It was narrowed down to 3: Definitive Technologies, Mirage, and Energy Take 5 Classic.
Summary: We purchased these surround speakers to go with our new Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K 7.1 channel A/V receiver and they have exceeded our expectations. Movies, especially action or Sci-Fi movies are absolutely incredible heard through this surround system.
Summary: I did a lot of homework looking for speakers and[...] gave these speakers an impressive review; these speakers are every bit as good as the review and are a steal at ~$200 for the 5 speakers and ~150 for the subwoofer; super clear sound great for movies and especially video games (and music)-...
Energy Take 5 Classic -- Quite Impressive -- Very Satisfied

Summary: Pros: These are crisp, clean, lots of range, lots of imaging (ability to sound like an actual 3D event, rather than sound coming from speakers.) Very well matched as a set. They fill my reasonably large TV/audio rooms very, very well.
Summary: They seem to be able to hear all my music and movies now... these things sound 10x bigger than they are. They look stunning too! Make sure you get the to get thundering but undistorted bass and LFE! I have these hooked up to an Onkyo receiver with 16 gauge speaker wire.
