Summary: I had a pair of Klipsch Forte IIs since the 80's. They sounded awesome until Sandy came and wiped them out. I replaced them with the RF-82s and I'm not the least bit disappointed. Sound quality,price, and looks.... Can't beat it.....
Summary: I bought my first decent stereo when I was 15. Then with digital downloads and portable players the quality of sound slipped considerably. Recently I decided to get that quality of sound back. My first purchase were these speakers, quality cables, and the Onkyo TX8050 80 watt amp.
Summary: I have a pair of old "DBX" speaker system and wanted to upgrade for several years. I read reviews from the web and from some magazines. Finally I decided to chosse between two brands: Klipsch RF series and Bowers and Wilkins.
Summary: Just got a set of Klipsch RF-82's and a RC-62 from Acousticsounddesign.com. They were fantastic through the whole transaction nice to deal with guy like Mike Embers. The Speakers sound amazing...
Summary: These replaced Infinity Beta 50s, which sound great too. But these Klipsch RF-82 II take your sound to the next level both Music and Movies. (3) Three things that is very Important too a great sounding HT System is to have Quality AMP/ Receiver , Matching Speakers from the same Series.
Summary: Klipsch RF82 II BLACK Single 2-way Reference series black floor-standing speaker I received these speakers from Amazon in the time frame specified. Delivery was awesome and very helpful. The setup for these speakers was a snap. Good terminal connections.
Summary: I can honestly say I have never heard a better sounding speaker. Paired with a HK3490. It makes 5.1/7.1 HT Box systems sound like transistor radios. Incredible reference sound, endless depth and clarity! If your sitting in a couch the highs are about 1-2" above ear level.
Pros: Great power handling at a reasonable limit giving you a variety of amp choices without breaking the >700$ price point.
Cons: They are heavy, but that attributes to tight bass. Back firing vents. Need 6-18" between the wall and speaker.
Summary: I don't usually do these reviews but the service and speakers were so exceptional I had to write something. I received these speakers promptly after ordering - 2 days - which for the size and quantity of packages I thought was exceptional. Exceeded their estimated delivery by 3 days.
Summary: I am looking for front speakers and a receiver to start a home theater system. I want the front speakers to really excel at music because I enjoy listening to music in 2 or 2.1 channel stereo. If the speakers can handle music well I am confident they will be able to handle movies.
