Summary: I got these speakers for 2-channel music listening. In making my selection I found online reviews, from both professionals and regular users, very useful. I especially appreciated the reviews that made it clear how the reviewer was using them, and what they were comparing them to.
Pros: I would call these neutral speakers. I have read comments about them being harsh or lacking bass, but this is not my experience. I do think placement may have to do with this. I also like how, despite their size and weight, when seen face-on with the grille on they look deceivingly small and inau...
Cons: I don't see any cons. I did a lot of research and what I got exceeded my expectations of what I had distilled from all the information I had collected. So, thanks internet!
Summary: Excellent choice ! All the other reviews were a big help as well. I was skeptical about buying without having heard them in person but I was very impressed. Usng a Pioneer VSX-1124K. Couldn't be happier !
Pros: Sound. Plenty of bass that I was missing before
Summary: In the process revamping man cave into retirement mode. Replaced a pair of Mirage 895is (giving to a son for his setup) and agonized between RTi A9 and RTi A7. The RTi A9 won the debate. This is a very impressive speaker with excellent mid range and high end.
Pros: Excellent sound without any coloration. The cherry finish on the cabinet is impeccable. While the speaker has some size (my wife thought they were too big) as you listen you concentrate more on the sound and the size doesn't matter, all you get is great sound reproduction.
Cons: These speakers are heavy and are a challenge to move.
Summary: Cabinetry and construction are superb. Exceeds expectations, but you have to pay attention to all of the reviews. I knew I would use a subwoofer, so the weak low end does not bother me. Above 60 hz, the sound is pure and undistorted, especially at higher db levels.
Pros: Beautiful to the eye and ear, if it meets your intended purpose. Exceptional quality. Very high tech. I love this speaker and it fits my purposes. Highly recommended for audiophile with good equipment. Precise and wonderful to hear if driven properly.
Cons: Low end is weak, and a subwoofer is highly recommended. Not for weak systems, small spaces, or soft background elevator music.
Summary: I have had Klipsch speakers most of my life. I was looking for a system to put in my large work out room and these speakers absolutely have exceeded my expectations in every way. If you want BIG sound and uncompromised sound quality these are the speakers.
Cons: NOTHING, if anything they are large and heavy but that's the cost of great sound
Summary: Having a little prosperity coming my way, I discovered some unscratched itches; one of them was my entertainment system. I have an Onkyo home theater receiver (TX-NR807, 135 watts per channel) and had recently upgraded to a Samsung Curved TV after enduring a 30 year old box TV with green pictures.
Pros: Fantastic big sound. Beautiful furniture grade speakers. These speakers sound way better than the expensive built-in sound systems of my affluent friends and neighbors.
Summary: The speakers exceeded my expectations at all levels. The sound quality is pure, crisp and very clean with a solid bottom end. I found the use of a sub-woofer to be a enhancement but not a requirement due to the strong dynamic range of the speakers.
Pros: These speakers provide a large sound field that fills a room in a effortless manner for both surround sound front main speakers and for pure stereo listening enjoyment.
