    I can pick this sytem up for 325 and I was wondring if they were worth it? I have a moderate size room and I am currently looking at JBL nsp1, take5.2, and now these any feednback would be great. i wil be running them with a denon 3801.

    That's not a bad deal - I got the same set up about a month ago for 300 delivered which I thought was a _great_ deal (from hififorless.com - was a special so I'm not sure if they'd still sell at that price).
    I also have a moderate sized room - I upgraded from a Bose cube set up and have been extremely pleased. Incidently, I also HIGHLY recommend the Klipsch KSW-12 or even the KSW-10 as a matching sub - I got the 12 for 289 from hififorless.com as well. It's no SVS, but a great sub nonetheless at a fantastic price.
    Best,

    I'd definitely go with the Energy speakers over the Klipsch.

    Brian, based on my various speaker comparisons and research, I recommend the JBL NSP1's. JBL successful design for the NSP1's is well documented by measurements and listening**.
    But like all other recommendations, you need to audition the speakers on your list.
