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created was another potential problem or recall or new series such as the 1516 is now the great 1517 only to be outdated 3 months later by...
Summary: It has been 8 months since I have installed these speakers. I have compared them with my roommates Bose Lifestyle Speakers. I could not tell the difference. That says a lot as these are about a quarter of the price he paid for the Bose. I am using a Yamaha RX-V667 7.2-Channel Home Theater Receiver (Black) . While I am not happy with that receiver, it still seems to make these speaker sound amazing. For the price I think that they are they best you will find anywhere.
Summary: Very good sound for my home theater AND for music. I ditch my old speakers due to poor music performance even though movies sounded good. These can do both well. I did notice a sound from the right channel that sounded like sand pouring on a drum head under certain circumstances. That problem seems to have gone away. FYI... Not sure what to make of that.
