I've spent the last month or so listening to as many different speaker systems as I possible could. I've heard b&w, thiel, paradigm, deftech, polk, infinity, jbl, CV, Jamo, Klipsch, and so on I think i'm forgetting a few. But in the end I have to say i'm most happy with klipsch. I was real close to getting the tower II's by vmps but was recommended by a friend to here the paradigms first. So, I put the order on hold to audition them then came across a great deal on the klipsch rf7's. I must say this is the speaker i was looking for. I can't say i'm all that impressed with the more "audiophile" quality speakers. I never have quite got the idea behind an audiophile yet but I don't think i'm one. I just noticed that all the speakers I heard that were called audiophile speakers seemed "week". Thats just my ears and my opinion though. Anyway, I couldn't be happier with these speakers they are everything I was asking for and then some. Music jams, movies are incredible. They actually made the rest of my polk system sound like crap. The first thing I noticed when I played them on a movie was "i have to get a new center channel now". But anyway, several people posted they were interested in my polk audio towers, they are the rt2000p series with the powered dual 8" subs built in. Whoever you all were i'll offer them to you guys first. I would like to get about $700 for the pair but I am up for offers if that sounds too high. I really don't know what they are worth anymore but they were alot more than that when I bought them about a year ago. They are in perfect condition slightly used never abused and black ash in color i believe is what its called.
