These speakers are really amazing in looks, sound, and price!!
13 February 2012
Summary: Great buy and great sound!! Had 4 BIC America Ventures Series Towers and center channel at 150 watts each and a 350 Cerwin Vega 12" powered sub on a Denon 3802 home theater amp before this. It sounded amazing but I needed room so I had to part with it. I bought the Energy Take Classics expecting to be disappointed but I wasn't!! These are really a great speaker in a tiny box!!! My room is 20 ft X 23 ft.....
Summary: First off let me explain that the Energy Classic speakers in this kit are the exact same as the Energy Take Classic 5.1 except that you don't get the subwoofer. These speakers are just mind boggling good. They come in gloss piano black finish. They sound better than any speakers I've ever owned - even ones 5 times bigger. I use them mostly for music thru my Onkyo receiver but home theater sounds just as good.
Summary: I purchased this speaker set based on the reviews I found here and all over the internet. After hooking up the speakers I found that the tweeter in the center channel speaker and in one of the satellite speakers was not working. The non-functioning tweeters issue wasn't immediately noticeable to me.
Summary: I purchased the Energy system in August of this year and am extremely impressed with its performance. I should preface this review by disclosing that I am a heavy researcher, my wife says bordering on compulsive. Whenever I am considering a large purchase I plot and plan for weeks, scouring reviews and forums pertaining to whatever product it is I'm interested in. My aim in this research is to get the best possible value for my money.
Summary: I tried many sets before this. I had the Infinity's TSS-800 and the TSS-1200 before I bought the Energy. And man, am I happy! These speakers sound great! The bass is deep and solid, no distortion at all. The highs sound crisp and clear and mids are rich. I'm currently using them with a Denon 1912 receiver. Couple of things you should know before you buy though: First, these speakers ship without speaker wire, so make sure you buy some and a sub cable as well.
Summary: I have long been a fan of Cambridge Soundworks and Klipsch for my speaker needs. I wasn't able to find anything at Cambridge Soundworks that I liked, and I really didn't want to spend $1,500 on my game room for speakers and a receiver. I bought these based on the high reviews here, and overall I think this is a great value.
Summary: Had these for about a week so far. Hooked up to my Onkyo NR509 with 14 gauge RCA speaker wire. They play together really well. Great sound! The speakers were much smaller than i had expected (which is a good thing). Also glad that the center channel is designed to lay horizontally. It hides under my tv perfectly. Very happy with my purchase.
