Summary: In moving to our new house, I decided to finally replace a 12 year old set of Kenwood Home Theater in a Box speakers with something a bit more stylish and punchy sounding. The receiver was replaced years ago, but due to financial inertia I kept the old speakers around. My wife was wanting the home theater setup in the living room to look a lot cleaner than it did, so I started looking small. Surprisingly, this set of speakers came up aces in almost everyone's book.
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....started the music and left it on for more than 4 hours and trust me it sounds great, cant imagine how good them be once the 'break in' period is over.
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. They have a great looking piano black finish; they definitely don't look cheap.
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...
Summary: The positive reviews from CNET were correct these speakers sound way better than my old Bose 321 system(6 years old0 that is totally outdated. Now I have real surround sound and music from my Ipod Touch and Iphone sound awesome. These small speakers really bang subwoofer has nice base, set half way up.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Looks Nice And Sleek, Thundering Bass
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. I waited the suggested burn-in before turning the volume up too high. These speakers handle every bit of what my 110w/ch amp sends them without distortion.
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. If you don't want to have an over size surround speakers hanging over your head, this little speaker is an excellent choice. It blew away my previous 7.1 surround sound speakers......
