Summary: Looked at a number of different 5.1 surround sound speaker options. I wanted something on the smaller size but didn't want to pay the price of a Bose system. Saw the review on these at CNet & decided to take the plunge. I haven't been disappointed at all. You can actually feel the sound effects during a movie if you choose to play it loud enought. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase.
Summary: Great set of speakers. Sound good and look great. Only drawback as I seen it is that you cannot get extra sattelite speakers for making a 7.1 or 9.1 channel system. Also, speakers have a single mounting point on the back rather than two which makes it a little tricky to mount properly on my Sanus HTB-3 floor stands, although that is as much a problem with the latter as the former.
Summary: I was a little hesitant about buying a surround sound at first, but was totally worth it. Music that I've listened to in the past sounds like new now. I can pick up on every individual instrument now as through listening through a stereo.
Summary: These speakers are the real deal. For anyone looking for an all-in-one solution to their home theater needs at great value - look no further. I went with the Energy Take 5 after reading hords of positive reviews and here I am writing one of my own. The bass is thunderous and responsive, the satellite speakers are sharp and clear, and the center channel is a beast that does all of the aforementioned. Lastly, they look subtle and classic just as their name indicates.
Summary: I wouldn't consider myself a true audiophile, but I am musically trained and I have a very good ear. Obviously I wanted a good sounding system, but unfortunately I am a college student with a very limited budget. That being the case, I did a lot of research before buying a new system to try to get the most I could for the money. I had previously never heard of the energy brand before I came across the Take 5 package.
Summary: The clarity on these things is amazing. Mine are set up with a Sony Blu-Ray player, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002PHM0XQ/ref=oss_product and a Pioneer receiver, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0039XQL2G/ref=oss_product . They sound great for their size. Definitely much better than the Samsung HTB they replaced. If you are looking for a set of small 5.1 surround speakers, you would be hard pressed to beat these at any price.
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...Anyways Me and my wife were discussing our move, and got on the topic of all my speakers, and i agreed that not only will it be hard to move everything, but tough to fit it all in a smaller...
Summary: I purchased this set about 6 mos ago. One of the speakers didn't sound right so I took it to be repaired (still under warranty). The repair facility just happens to be around 10 miles from my house. The repair facility confirmed a bad tweeter and driver. They ordered the parts. The tweeter came in HOWEVER, the "driver" is back ordered and no idea when it will come in.
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 you these small speakers sound eaven better than my old yamaha speaker system which speakers were like 8 times bigger. You definetly need a sub for lower frequency wave.
