...and it's a good one! Reviewer's choice @ Soundstage! magazine. http://www.soundstage.com/revequip/energy_c3.htm quote: "the Energy Connoisseur is a textbook example of a high-value speaker -- and a Reviewer's Choice" Listen to one and judge for yourself, I for one am in complete agreement with the reviewer. I'm getting C-7s for mains, C-3s for surrounds, and waiting for the upcoming CC-3 for the center. and I was set on buying a completely different set of speakers before auditioning those.
