Summary: Bought these speakers a month back but was waiting for some good deals on receivers to hook these to. Just installed them and to start with the sound was not up to the mark (and was about to start the troubleshooting) but i recollected about the break-in periodic...
Summary: The quality of these speakers floored me. I did a ton of research online to try to find some of the best values so I could get my home theater up and running cheaply. These got excellent reviews, so I took the plunge. I was immediately impressed by their appearance.
Summary: Honestly, a truly great speaker system. Like others, I questioned if these were as good as advertised and I think they are even better. I replaced a bose satellite system with these and immediately noticed the difference, bang for the buck nothing can touch them. Buy with confidence...
5 stars but wish I would have gotten the 5.1 instead

Summary: I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination and I also will say that I can't give 100% credit to the Take Classics for the great sound as the Denon receiver also plays a part in it. What I WILL say is that these speakers sound beautiful.
Summary: It is excellent compact surround sound speakers. I use it with my powerful 135w receiver, giant Klipsch floor stand speakers and two 12" subwoofers. These little Energy speakers provides excellent center and surround sounds.
Summary: I wanted to get rid of my old big box speakers sony 5.1 and get some nice compact speakers. I first ck bose always wanted a set but all the reviews said other wise. So I check reviews about small to med. speakers and it always ended up more than not towards energy classic 5.
wow! Fulfilled all of my special needs and demands

Summary: I have only one functioning ear. As such, dialog is often difficult to understand even if the volume is loud enough.The center channel produces such clear voice that I understand even the whispers.

Summary: Love the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System. I presently own two Bose systems one being an aging lifestyle 28. I decided to purchase this system because I just can't buy into the overpriced hype any more.
