    My local Best Buy just got in their Athena line and I must say, they sound really good compared to what else they carry. I'm in the market for some decent towers and it comes down the the Northridge JBLs (because the Studio towers are clearancing out), the new Klipch Synergy series they carry, and those Athena's. I listened to all three and I have to say, I really was impressed by the $600/pair Athena's. I haven't seen much chatter about them on here but the reviews I've read are extremely positive. What can you guys tell me? BTW, I'll be using them for home theater and music equally.

    Athena is made by the the same parent company that also makes Energy & Mirage so you are going to be getting a very high quality product with them you'll probably enjoy them emensly.

    I have had my Athena speakers in a 6.1 setup for over a year. They are well made, sound great and you don't have to apologize for paying so little for them. They sound great, have high efficiency (90db+) and are solid. Also, how many "budget" speakers actually have the name of their designer on them? To me that says a lot about the pride that the manufacturers have in their product.
