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.
Summary: These speakers were better than I expected. I replaced a set of bose speakers and could not be happier. The sound is crisp, more depth...and the price was $250 less than what I could have paid at a retail outlet. I was amazed at the quick delivery, they arrived by courier the next day.
