Summary: I just came from listening to the RF-82II with the RC-62 center and color me impressed. I have always been a Heritage series bigot, preferring the sound quality of a 3 way horn speaker and the powerfull bass generated by both porting and passive radiators. I own the Forte II's amd a quartet center channel(my favorites, I like 'em better than the Cornwalls).
Summary: You must connect these to a clean amplifier to get the sound the designers intended. Don't whine and put less than 5 eggs cause you skimped on the amp!! These speakers rock hard!!!
Pros: For 4 years I have these speakers bi-amped connected to a VSX-84 Elite receiver. They are hands down the sweetspot of the Klipsch RF lineup. Excellent bass, Excellent mids and highend. Imaging is also excellent. U are not going to find a better speaker out there in this price range. They travel well to. LA to Africa to the Middle East!!! They are some bad $## speakers
Summary: My RF-82 pair serve as a stand-alone units for music listening (I also have a Klipsch HD-1000 set up in a smaller area for watching video). The receiver, a Denon 830, is located in the video room about 50 feet away, but even with that long cable run the RF-82s are capable of filling the whole house with sound.
Summary: Bought these for the L/R Mains on my Home Theater. They are simply AMAZING! For music they are also very good. Efficient and easy on the ears. Just like all Klipsch speakers, they need clean power. They will show the weakness in any system. I put them beside the speakers they were replacing and a bunch of guys and I played side by side movie and music demos....Hands down, Klipsch is the winner. Can't even imagine what the RF-63's or RF-83's would sound like!
Summary: I just recently purchased a full set of Klipsch speakers from Mike over at acousticsounddesign.com I have the RF-82 fronts, RC62 Center and 4- RS-52 surrounds. I also bought the Denon 3808 AV receiver. I have always been a fan of Klipsch and have owned the Quintets for years. It is amazing how great the reference series sounds. I love the crisp clean sound and they do a great job of filling the gap from mid to sub.
Summary: I picked these up at Tweeter before they went under for $380 bucks each. All I can say is that's a steal for this kind of sound quality. I have these set up in my living room for 2 channel listening only with no sound altering (eq, or amp with tone controls). Just a high end cd player, a Trends 10.1 integrated amp and these speakers.
Summary: Uuuh...Huh huh.... cool. Otherwise I'm speachless. I am buying two more for the rear channels and driving all of the neighbors for blocks out of their brains. Louder than the giant speakers from the 80's when I was a teen, but sound quality is the best I have heard, of course I coupled with a $4000 Denon (7.1ch) receiver and a Blu-ray player. Buy these and then watch Apocolyse Now or Predator and you might pee yourself from joy or fear...or both. Good Luck.
Summary: I originally ordered these and they did not show up. However, after phoning Nintronics I had the owner phone me back and explain the problem was with the Klipsch distribution point in Ireland and no fault of theirs. I then received a call from Klipsch in Ireland who promised to ship them Next Day to me at their cost. They indeed deed and they arrived next day.
Summary: För pengarna är de helt jäkla makalösa i ett dämpat rum, sen kan de spela riktigt högt jämfört med andra hifi högtalare och är väldigt välbyggda. Men detta är inte högtalaren för dig med kala väggar där hemma, de blir fort påträngande i dålig akustik iom sitt "öppna" & "detaljerade" ljud.
