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: have a friend with a complete klipsch set up. didnt want to spend thousands though. these are the best home speakers i have ever heard. i have bose sats and these mounted on the sides on tv and a boston center. ROCKS!!!
Summary: Let me simply say these speakers sound fantastic. I have been listening to a wide variety of music for the last several months, as well as blu-ray movies. The soundstage is great, and I cannot believe the clean and deep bass out of a set of bookshelf speakers with 6.5" woofers! I am not using any bass or treble adjustment; they sound good as they are. The finish on the product is excellent also. I highly recommend these speakers to budding or budget-concious audiophiles.
Summary: I downsized my living situation and decided to go with a small midsized speaker. I researched Bose, amongst other brands. I ended up purchasing the energy CD-20's. After an hour of demo I knew they were lacking in the highs, although they had great midrange sound. After returning the energy's I purchased the B&W CM1R. These got excellent online reviews yet once I tried them I felt they still lacked in the high range frequencies.
Summary: For those of you like myself who found the title unclear, this is for 2 speakers left & right. They sent me (to my delight) the RB-61 II speakers, the 2s are the second generation of the reference series of speaker systems. I agree with previous reviewers here, that these will take a little break-in period as they are very krispy kritters. That is what I like, that real crispy sound.
Summary: I have owned a pair of RB-61 for about 2 months now, and have it powered by a harmon kardon hk-3490 120 wpc, and use it for stereo listening, and some tv viewing. I listen to all kind of music and I have to say these pair of speakers sound excellent with clear high notes and rich deep base.
Summary: Don't pay more than $400/pair. Well worth that price though. Efficient, crisp, clear, LOUD - just like a Klipsch should be. Can take a beating before distorting. Beware of ear fatigue if your not used to loud music. If you don't like horn loaded tweeter's look elsewhere now, Klipsch sound is pretty much defined by it. The drawback is their size, for a 'bookshelf' speaker this fella has a pretty big footprint and cieling.
Summary: I auditioned numerous speakers before discovering Klipsch sort of by accident. It sounds overstated, but the simple truth is the rich perfect sound from these speakers exceeds anything I've ever heard. Polk, Cerwin Vega, Boston Acoustics, Infinity, Bose and many more that I or family members have owned all pale in comparison to these. The first thing I popped in when I paired these up with my RC-52 center was Eagle Eye on BluRay.
