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: 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.
Summary: This product is what I expected and I purchased for our home entertainment center. It works well for what I wanted and I am happy with it, it isn't the highest quality I could of purchased, but it is a good quality product.

Summary: Excellent Speakers. was looking for speakers for a month and finally went with energy 5.1 classic attached to yamaha 373 AV receiver. worth every penny. Loved the design and sound quality of speakers. Sub Woofer is excellent ++. heart pumping 200W. Suggested to small to medium rooms. i used in 16' X 12' room. sounds amazing. only one compliant: no speaker cables, no sub woofer cable included. just speakers.
Summary: Recently purchased the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System to go with a Denon AVR1712 receiver & Samsung(PN60E8000GFXZA60) 60 inch Plasma TV. Considered Bose, Klipsch & Definitive Technology. CNET (best product) review was the deciding factor. Speakers can easily handle the thunderous highs and lows associated with movies. Music sounds brilliant. Just need to break the speakers in for about 50 hours. This was easy because I always am listening to music.
Summary: I love this system. I spent DAYS crawling through "various sites" trying to piece together a system filled names like bose, klipsch, pioneer, etc. I had no plan on going with an all-in-one system. I had shopping sites in one browser window and product reviews in another window. As usual, i found that with every technological advance, created was another potential problem or recall or new series such as the 1516 is now the great 1517 only to be outdated 3 months later by...
