Perfect center channel addition to the home theater.

Summary: First lets just take a moment to recognize its beautiful; looks even better in the room, but the fidelity of the sound is really quite exceptional. I pulled out some movies that I knew had scenes where the dialogue was difficult to hear, and it came right through. The vocals tones of the actors dialogue is also very natural. Fantastic addition to any home entertainment system.
Summary: I'll leave the detailed audio reviews to the audiophile sites. However, this is an incredible center channel that can produce great dynamics and very life-like voices. Here are some things I noticed that other's haven't mentioned: -The Klipsch packing is outstanding and provides the speaker with good protection during shipping.
Summary: I love A/V and have invested in a fairly nice home theater. The core sound in my HT is powered by a pair of Paradigm S8 v3 speakers. I added this speaker as my center channel. Relative to the S8s, I would rate this as a very capable center channel speaker that sounds very good. However, after hearing it I wish I had either purchased a Paradigm CC-690 center or waited to find a great deal on a Paradigm Signature C5.
Summary: Read my other related review on the RF-7 speakers. The RC-64 is the bomb of center channel speakers. I don't understand how all these other companies minimize the size and number of drivers in the center speakers. For dialogue and to maximize the front stage with the front left/right speakers, especially with matched Klipsch speakers, the RC-64 cannot be beat. My family is consistently commenting on how awesome this speaker is, and the entire front stage for that matter.
Summary: After trying many center channel speakers looking for clear, balanced dialogue that I could hear and understand I finally found one that delivers. Sure, it costs a fortune for us average Joe's but it is worth it if you have a decent sized room and a good quality home theater system. I've used it for 6 months now and it's simply amazing.
