Summary: Love these speakers, especially for live recordings. Warning though, a large room is needed. I use these speakers for home theater as well. I use the bi-amp feature and really enjoy the fullness the added power provides.
Summary: I owned older Infinity's and I bought these to replace them. These speakers are awesome. Great sound reproduction, awesome bass, mids and highs. I have listened to Polks, Definitive technology and several others and Klipsch, in my opinion, is the best speaker on the market for the price range, and maybe any price range. They don't need much power because of the sensitivity, but they sound absolutely awesome with lots of power.
Summary: I matched these up with the RC-62 II, 2 RS-52 II, 2 RB-81 II, 2 RW-10d, and 2 pair of RB-51 for my wide and high front. The extremely helpful folks at Klipsch say that there is no problem mixing Reference and Reference II speakers. Check the Klipsch website to figure out the system you want to build. I would recommend the Reference line. I power all these with an Onkyo TX-NR708 receiver. Let me just say I will never again go to the movie theater to see a movie.
Summary: I received these speakers to replace some older Infinity speakers. The range of sound is far beyond anything I imagined. The bass has great depth, and the highs are clean and clear, even with head banging heavy meteal music, my favorite type. I turn the volume up until the pictures on the wall are rattling and ready to jump off, but they haven't yet. I have to put them back on their hooks and straighten them.
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: 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.
