Summary: I have had these speakers for 5 years now, and still, they sound amazing. Very clear, accurate and crisp sound. if you have a small room, get ready to be blown away. The sub woofer is great, can;t go past 5 on them, too loud, and subwoofer begins to distort after 7, depending on level of bass.
Summary: This review should be 5 stars, but no product is perfect, so I'm just going to pick one small nit. Energy doesn't sell the Take classic satellites individually, so you're out of luck if you want to make a 7.1 set. Other than that, perfect.
Summary: I purchased these this system for use in my main living room so size and inconspiciousness was important for me. After reading a positive review from the $100 a foot speaker wire crowd I decided to purchase. The sound is excellant for both movies and music. Very spacious, smooth and accurate.
Summary: First off, get yourself a great Reciever ... your speakers are only as good as the speaker. With a nice reciever, the Take 2 is simply put the best mid range speaker on the market. In fact even compared to many speakers twice the price range, the energy speakers are far superior.
Summary: These speakers sound very clean and can play very loud with no distortion. The only improvement can be with the sub. The sub sounds good, but can't seem to keep up with the other speakers, but after all its only an 8" driver. All in all a very good sounding system.
Summary: probably the best speaker set in the 'compact' category, excellent reviews on cnet... the center speaker does sound slightly boxy when watching older tv programs with not so good audio especially dialogue, but overall excellent sound
Summary: I like the reviews I've read about the Energy Take Classic II 5.1 speaker package, and for the price on sale it's difficult to pass quality in a small package. Also, I like the fact that the 8 inch sub is down firing, which fills the room perfectly for a small sub.
