I was at a local stereo/hometheater store today and heard someone listening to a demo of Klipsch RF series (10's I think)speakers. People say that NHT speakers are bright but my NHT's are positively laid back compared to these. These were so bright I instinctively thought of nails on a chalkboard and wished he would turn it down. Don't want to offend anyone since speakers are a very subjective choice and everyone's ears are different. This was the first time I had ever heard Klipsch speakers and they almost made me run for the door, made my SuperTwo's sound warm. I'm not sure what electronics they were using but they have some nice stuff- yamaha,marantz, adcom, etc... definitely not a low end shop. If you own Klipsch and love them, more power to you, this is just my opinion.(you know what people say about opinions).
