Summary: I've had these speakers for about 2 months now and let me tell you, you won't be dissapointed The clarity and precision is incredible True to life. I find, the louder you push 'em the better they sound. I have my RF82s matched with an RC52 centre channel speaker, a pair of RS42s for the rear, a Klipsch Synergy 12 subwoofer and a Denon AVR-890.I won't be going to a movie theatre any time soonKlipsch rocksOn a side note, the speakers at first will sound a little bright,...
Summary: Running high end tube amp through them and .o6 watts sounds at times too loud until I go out into the hallway and realise that it is ALL SOUND because you can hardly hear out there. You can never go wrong with Klipsch. Hopefully FS will look at their higher end speakers one day.
Summary: I bought these speakers about a month ago and have been listening to them dillegently. Not only are the absolutely phenominal with home theater applications, they will also blow you away with music. I had probably tested a good 16 high quality speaker sets and had even bought and returned a few. I have compared these speakers to PSB, Paradigm, BW, Mission, Sinclair, Polk, Energy and quite a few more makes, and the Klipsch came out on top.
Summary: I upgraded from the RF 52s to these RF 82s when I saw them on sale. They are *much* larger and *much* heavier. They also sound fantastic. They can effortlessly go from normal dialogue to a huge swell of sound, and the clarity is breathtaking - especially with Blue Ray and High Def sound. I also use them with an Apple TV and the higher bit-rate songs are also very good. During 'Master and Commander' the canon ball fights got the attention of everyone in the house.
Summary: I could not be any more happy. FINALLY a product that delivers on what it promises, with nothing to be left wanting for. These speakers sound amazing, period. I have them powered by an old high current Nakamichi receiver from the late 80's. Music, Blu-Ray films and video games on the PS3 sound absolutely incredible - shakes stuff off my shelves.
Summary: These Are great towers. The Horn Tweeter On this Speaker will be one of if not the best Tweeter you will find in a loud speaker. very very clear clean sound zero distorion.As for the mids and bass id give it a 10 out of 10. these RF-82 Dual 8 subwoofer hit power subwoofer notes at 33hz bass that you can actually feel great speaker over all. i love my RF-82.
Summary: For the price, unbeatable... superb bass, exceptional highs, awesome midrange seperation... I play everything from symphony to jazz to ozzy and can say they handle each genre without any flaws... you'll spend alot more to get a little better...
Summary: I bought a set of JBL E-80 tower speakers from futureshop a couple of years ago and I thought nothing could top those puppys. However after buying these beasts I have moved my JBLs to my bedroom. These Klipsh are the best speakers I have ever heard by far. What is really amazing is that they don't take hardly any energy to use. These are extremely effieient and even a low power reciever will power these no problem.
