    Energy's new XL series of speakers is on their website. One floorstanding and one bookshelf model, plus the center channel. Check it out.

    Interesting. I just parted ways with a pair of the old e:XL 26's that I had for the last 4 years. Not a bad pair of speakers for what I paid. The new line looks almost the same with the exception of the silver baffle and woofers.

    I wonder how these are positioned vs. the Connoisseurs. Also, I wonder if they will be adding more models to the line. All they have shown is one tower model, one bookshelf and a Center. There's got to be more than that, no?

    I think if Energy comes out with more XL series models, then they will run into taking away sales from their Connoisseur series. I have the Connoisseur C1 and compared it to the e:XL16 bookshelf, and it was a toss-up. I went with the Connoisseur C1 because I was thinking of picking up the matching center channel speaker at a later time; don't know how long the e:XL center channel will be available.
