Summary: Bought this after reading a review in CNET. Glad I did. It is just amazing the sound that comes out of these little speakers! Plenty of bass too, but adjustable to your taste. Read the CNET review , then buy them. you won't be sorry.
Summary: I purchased the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System speakers are part of my first entertainment system. I paired it them up with the Denon AVR2312CI Integrated Network A/V Surround Receiver and couldn't be happier. I purchased everything except the receiver through Amazon. I bought a refurbished Denon from accessories4less.com with the extended warranty to save some money. The speakers sound amazing and they are small and compact.
Summary: That's the only way I can describe the experience of these high quality speakers. I had a menagerie of speakers attached to my Pioneer VSX-815 amp that I thought were just O.K. but cumbersome with no sub-woofer. The room is 9 X 12 and has a carpeted cement floor. The T.V. is a 55" smart LG LCD.
Summary: I researched online and asking friends for weeks to find the right surround sound for my husband's anniversary present and man am I happy I came across this one!!! For the price that we were looking in, I was a little worried I couldn't get a really good quality sound, but this one has it!!! The subwoofer is awesome and the little side speakers make a movie seem so much more real! My husband says at least twice a week, "I love my sound system!
Summary: I've owned much larger Polk Audio towers and subwoofer. Have also had Bose satellite speakers. This system is simply amazing..it sounds nearly as good as a huge speaker system that costs 2 or 3 times as much, and far better than the Bose satellite system. I don't miss my huge Polks at all. In fact I think most people would be very satisfied with this Energy system. It's in a large 17 x 25 room and sounds great even at high volumes.
Summary: Bought this based on the cnet review. Paired it with a Pioneer VSX-1122-K. The room is 25 x 18. The set showed up very tightly packaged. No chance it could get damaged. Each piece is quite elegant looking (more aggressive with fabric screen removed), however the shiny black surface shows every finger print. It requires a 50 hour break in period that took a few days for me. After that I pushed them hard and was impressed.
