    Energy Take 5.2 versus HSU Ventriloquist VT-12

    Mike, CNET did a review of several home theater speaker systems recently, including the Hsu and Energy systems you asked about. I couldn't find the link to the group review (it went out with the trash in my inbox after I read it), but below are the links to about half of the individual...

    Axiom, Ascend, Epos etc....

    Hi Curtis, Glad to hear you like Eva Cassidy too -- such a shame she is no longer with us, but at least she left an impressive body of work. Nice quote from DVD Etc. regarding the Ascends -- I'll have to run down to my local Barnes & Noble this weekend (if not sooner) :D to read it. Thanks...

    Axiom, Ascend, Epos etc....

    "Deb why did you choose the Epos?" Chris, I chose the Epos based on a variety of factors including the ones already mentioned in my earlier post. Midrange and vocal reproduction, especially female vocals (I listen to Eva Cassidy, Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Carol King, Sarah McLachlan, etc.)...

    Axiom, Ascend, Epos etc....

    Hi Chris, Tony's comments are right on the money. All the speakers you listed are highly regared at this and other audio/video websites. I believe that both Axiom and Ascend offer 30-day trial listening periods so you can hardly go wrong -- at worst, you'll be out return shipping costs...

    Energy Encore 6 vs Polk RM7200

    Hi Daman, Glad to hear you're enjoying your Polk's too. I think of the RM6700's as the Rodney Dangerfields of the speaker world ;) and the price/performance ratio is excellent! :emoji_thumbsup: Debbie

    Energy Encore 6 vs Polk RM7200

    Jeremy, I've not heard the RM7200, but I do own the RM6700's, have them set up in a small room, and love them! I auditioned several ultra-small set-ups including the Energy Take 5.2's and preferred the sound of the Polks. At the time I purchased them (almost a year ago now), a promo was going...

    RBH MC-4C and MC-414C

    Hi Grayson, I own the Polk RM6700 system and love it. I think it's a great 5.1 set-up FOR THE PRICE. But.........having also heard the RBH speakers you are considering, I can tell you that the RBH's are in another league, and for more than double the street price of the Polk's, they should...

    Epos ELS-3 anyone tried? Or, any other?

    I have a pair of the Epos ELS-3's in my home office 2.1 channel music-only system and love them! I listen primarily to 50s and 60s jazz, as well as some more contemporary jazz (lots of female vocals), some pop, light rock, and some classical. They really sing in the midrange and the bass is...

    Speakers around $700

    Hi Chun, I own the Polk Audio RM6700 system and highly recommend it in the under $1,000 price range. Like you, I needed to go with small satellites and to my ears, the Polks had the nicest sound of the systems I auditioned (Infinity, Def Tech, Bose, Sony, Energy Take 5.2). You can find a...

    Comparable Size speaker to Bose with Better Sound

    Kyle, Check these out:http://reviews.cnet.com/Polk_Audio_R...tml?tag=review I've had mine since last spring and am very happy with them, especially for the price I paid -- $609.00 with a free sub (PSW303) included. I think Circuit City might have the exact same package on sale right now...

    speakers to pair with a HK325

    Jen-x, Are you looking for one pair of speakers or a 5.1 set-up? What's the size of the room? Mostly music or HT? Types of music you'll be listening to? Do you want floorstanders or "bookshelf" speakers and are there any size limits?

    Vintage speaker recommedations

    Wes, My suggestion would be the ADS L710's. I am the original owner of a pair of these speakers and they're fantastic. 3-way with a 1" dome tweeter, 2" dome midrange, and dual 7" bass drivers, all in a sealed enclosure. Mine are currently residing "on loan" at my brother's house as I needed...
