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created was another potential problem or recall or new series such as the 1516 is now the great 1517 only to be outdated 3 months later by...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: 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.
Summary: What else can be said about these horns. I have no knowledge of anyone who finds that some unfavorable comment. simply amazing. They will not disappoint. Great for a room or a small room in your home. Clear sound, defined and powerful.
Summary: Simply the best surrond sound system ever used in my life. Blows away competition. Connected with Yamaha RX-V887 and boy this packs a punch the satellites are little baby geniuses form Energy and when you plug with Energy VSW 10" sub to it..it becomes a monster . Tested Thor 3D 7.1 channel and the action sequences came to life. I don't know if I can watch movies with out this system.
Hands down better then bose. A must hear. You will love them.

Summary: These sound flawless.....what a buy, i really scored the best sound. I thought bose but the sub was not adjustable. I am really glad i went this way. I bought a less exapensive receiver and these speaker make me look like a pro. Buy them, you won't be disappointed.
Summary: I looked hard and did a lot of research before getting these Speakers, I am a big fan of Klipsh Polk, and Boston speakers, but I have to say, I am now a bigger fan of Energy now I hooked these up to my new Denon, and it didnt take long to fall in love with the crisp clean sound that these put out, I never herd much about Energy before I started reading reviews, and I found out that are made by Klipsh , so I had to see what they sounded like Get these speakers and you...
