Summary: I purchased a complete set of speakers from http://www.sounddistributors.com/ and could not be happier with the system or the service I received. Sound Distributors were very helpful and directed me with what type of speaker would best fit my application. I was skeptical buying on line with this type of purchases but was shipped same day as ordered and arrived on scheduled date.
Summary: Love these speakers. They do sound a little "bright" out of the box, but everything I read says they need to be broken in for a little while before they give a nice "warm" sound. I have them paired with a Pioneer SC-1223-K which I've also read will contribute to that endeavor. They are very solid and well-built, and look beautiful with grill or without. The grill is magnetic for easy removal and restoration. Very happy with purchase.
Summary: First, Crutchfield service is outstanding. Now for the speakers, they exceeded my expectations in looks, build and sound. The cherry finish looks much better in person and much better than the black. The speakers are heavier and more solid than I was expecting. The sound is great. Large, deep sound stage, the "front row" sound is just that. The sound stage is projected out into the room creating a great sense of depth.
Summary: These replaced my very old ADS speakers and are paired up with a Pioneer Elite VXS-84TXS receiver. They sound wonderfull. I was looking at their Icon Dual 8 speakers and decided to go with these instead because of the reviews I read hear.
Summary: I originally bought the bookshelf version RF-62 II's. I loved them so much. Then when I saw the Tower's were discounted I didn't hesitate and immediately bought them as well. Now with the towers in front and the bookshelves as surround I am in 7th heaven (this set up is in my bedroom). I don't have space for a subwoofer, but I don't need them. I moved my turntable to this set up so I can play all the classical and jazz vinyls I have while reclining in my sleep number.
Pros: Deep, rich and smooth sound reproduction all up and down the frequencies. No need to mess with the spectrum analyzer it is so balanced. It doesn't matter what volume the sound is being played at.
