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... you get the feeling the sound isn't coming from a speaker, but rather the sound fills the room (large room) VERY nicely. I tossed the idea of other speakers around both more expensive and less expensive, I decided on the Klipsch and it was the perfect choice.
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: I needed a replacement for 2 Klipsch LaScalas that my wonderful wife didn't want in our new home decor. These RF 82 IIs are a wonderful replacement when added to my Velodyne subs to cover the base. Crisp and clear as all Klipsch products are.
Summary: I owned a Bose V20 system before and these speakers sound better even without a subwoofer! The Bose was good but these are better! The sound is clearer, the imaging is better and the bass is tighter. I power them with a Yamaha RX-A2010BL setup with 2 Marantz MA-700 monoblock amps. My listening area is 20X30ft and they are more than loud enough. I do not think my room is big enough for RF-7 II.
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. Just a simple mount for the base to stabilize the speaker from tipping. Very stable. I am using these for a secondary viewing area and as a music studio reference speaker.
Summary: The best investment that I have ever done. I have had the opportunity, during many years, to listen different brands of speakers, and these ones have excellent sound comparing them with very expensive ones. I love them.
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. The RF83's would be a better choice for a standing room.
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. No damage to the boxes or merchandise. They came from Las Vegas and I am in Southern California.
