Pleasantly surprised

Vince1, Amazon

  • Summary: I was looking for a set of bookshelf speakers after I moved to a space where the towers would not fit and the installed ceiling speakers were inadequate. These really sound great. Mostly listening to vinyl through a tube amp. All I thought I would have to give up by going to a smaller speaker ended up being nothing. Klipsch has done it again, at a great price point.

3 Star! :((

  • Summary: I finally got the speakers hooked up and so far performance is great! It came in on time. The only thing is one of the speakers logo on the bottom is upside down (didn't know this until a guest brought it to my attention). Nothing can be done about it. Looks like it was put on wrong in the first place. I somewhat felt like I had bought a "knock off" brand! For that, I gave this product a 3.

Klipsch is fine wih me!

BD, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I bought the open box version and the units look fine and sound great. I am pleased with my first Klipsch purchase.
  • Pros: Just right for bookshelf use. Some say they are too large, I disagree. Sound is clear and full. No distortion at any level I can withstand. I use these for casual music and home theater use.
  • Cons: The cabinets are not fancy but the black blends in well.

Good Enough

  • Summary: Did some remodeling had had to kiss my floor standing speakers good bye. Bought these because they are floor speaker replacements. Does not exactly replace my floor speakers. But a serviceable option.

Clean & LOUD...

David S, Crutchfield
16 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm a drummer & guitar player. I like/need loud and accurate performance. The RB-81's are absolute monsters in delivery. I immediately played my fave sound system test-disc collection: ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN, Heaven Up Here; TED NUGENT, Electric Ballroom; ROXY MUSIC, Avalon; ADELE, 21; SINEAD O'CONNOR, any of her albums; FOO FIGHTERS, any.
  • Pros: Super loud and super accurate/clean; the finish on the cabinets is beautiful.
  • Cons: Not really a con but a caveat: these are a little larger cabinets and a little heavier than your average bookshelf speaker. Anyone should know that about an 8" loaded cabinet but just to note here to be sure. Wish the cabinets came in cherry or white?

Klipsch Reference RB-81 II

Tim G, Crutchfield
11 August 2013
  • Summary: Crisp, clean, airy sound to die for with my mono block tube amps. Beautiful cabinets! They sound perfect to Fleetwood Mac, Sleely Dan, and the Eagles. Highly reccomended!
  • Pros: Dual binding post for bi-amping. Clean, perfect sounding horns, nice tight low end. Very good looking!
  • Cons: Some mixes the highs over do the lows. That can be fixed with bi-amping and controlling the high, and low volumes. Also with a sub they woud be out of this world!

Worth the price

bowonwing, Amazon

  • Summary: Pricey, yes; worth it yes- buy these speakers and you will enjoy them for decades. Shimmering highs and good, powerful lows from the 8-inch woofer, minimum size for full bass response. The magazine Consumer Reports did a survey many years back on bookshelf speakers and recommended buying an 8 inch woofer, as they said this is the minimum size for "full bass response.
