Summary: People either love Klipsch or hate them. I love the precision of the sound - you get the highest highs, the lowest lows and everything in between. These speakers are part of the following system: Denon AVR-X3000 2 Klipsch RB-61 1 Klipsch RC-52 1 BIC America F12 The speakers are fairly large, but fit perfectly in my entertainment center (which I purchased just for this system). My volume goes up to 95.
Summary: Way better then my $250 Klipsch 5.1 bundle pack that I previously owned! The sound is crystal clear and (for the volume levels I use) and I felt these speakers were the best value for the price.
Summary: Klipsch has done it once again! I can't believe they have the ability to surprise me. I replaced a set of rb-35's with these and the sound is fabulous. The RB-61 II 's are smaller and lighter than the rb 35's. The rb-61 II blows away my other speakers. They are capable of a more "full" sound and are MUCH louder when needed. I am still shocked! You will not be disappointed if you get these.
Summary: Many years ago I had a decent amplifier and speakers, and music was a constant in my life; somehow, over time, I let that system be replaced with lesser quality components. Partly I was seduced by the consolidation of functions into a home theater system, which unfortunately made listening to music more challenging and hence less frequent. Recently I bought a new stereo for the dining room.
Summary: I have been a Klipsch listener for over 20 years and had to buy new book shelve speakers. These are it! The lows,clarity for a "book shelve " speaker are not in the vocabulary. Well worth it ,wonderful ,wonderful sound! Iam hearing things on these I have not heard before. Don't let the last previews fool you, they play wonderful jazz and classical! Treat yourself!
Summary: I have a fairly small family room where my home theater resides. It has evolved over time in a 7.1 configuration. The weak link was the left and right front speakers. I chose the outgoing pair a long time ago and decided to treat myself to something newer and better. I had to have bookshelf-sized speakers to fit in the space that I have, plus I wanted them to blend into the décor. Oh yes, I wanted them to sound good.

Summary: Excellent build quality and nice appearance one expects from Klipsch. Highly efficient, reproduces bass better than I thought they would at low volume. Very well matched to my vintage Pioneer SX 1250 receiver.
Summary: Top Quality sound with no distortion. Amazing power. Check your dimensions though. These are easily twice the size of your average bookshelf speakers. I had to make some changes to my setup...but well worth the time!
Summary: My system - RB 62 II - Pioneer SX-828 - Fiio E7 DAC Overall these speakers are great as bookshelf speakers. The highs are unbeatable, mids are great, and the bass is tight. When I plugged them in for the first time, I sat down and listened to about 2 hours of music ranging from classic rock to dubstep and everything in between. After a good hour, the horn tweeters really started to give me some fatigue. By the second hour, I really need to take a nap.
Summary: A huge improvement over my previous 10+ year old bookshelf speakers. I was wondering if upgrading my speakers was going to make a difference - wow. 256k streaming music actually sounds good now - I can't believe it. If you're looking for high sound quality bookshelf sized speakers, you won't be disappointed with these. Excellent bass for a small speaker. Their Tractrix Horn technology does the job on highs and mid-range.
