I struggled to decide how many stars to give these excellent speakers. I settled on 5 but would have selected 4.5 if that was an option. I have been on an upgrade spree for the home theater:

1. Samsung 5000 Series LED (review: [...] )
2. Yamaha RX-V667 for AV receiver (review: [...] )
3. Klipsch RC-62 II for center channel (review: [...] )
4. Denon DBP-1611UD for spinner (review: [...] )

...and finally, I have to write something about the L/R front speakers. I waited on the front speakers, because I wanted to give them a chance to break in and to have a chance to 'get used to them' (which is what I think a lot of the break-in period really is). I've moved the previous speakers upstairs (the M&Ks) and purchased these, because I wanted the fronts to be timbre matched with the center. Trust me, you really, really want the fronts matched with the center or movies will not sound right (I didn't realize what a huge difference matching the fronts and center would make until I brought home the RB-61 IIs and hooked them up).

I have the RB-61 IIs bi-amp connected to the Yamaha AVR; you can read all about "fools bi-amping" on the Internet, but I spoke with a support engineer at Yamaha that encouraged me to connect them this way; his statement was that it will add a little bit of extra power and clarity; I would now agree.

The sound characteristics are similar to the matching center (see my review of the RC-62 II), with a LOT of depth and warmth, as well as a lot of sound. I re-ran the Yamaha automated setup and then manually tweaked the settings to allow more bass to go to the speakers. These things have 6.5" woofers, so why not use 'em?

I have a fairly small family room where my home theater resides. It has evolved over time in a 7.1 configuration. The weak link was the left and right front speakers. I chose the outgoing pair a long time ago and decided to treat myself to something newer and better. I had to have bookshelf-sized speakers to fit in the space that I have, plus I wanted them to blend into the décor. Oh yes, I wanted them to sound good. But I testing speakers somewhere other than your house is tough. So I decided to do some online research on trusted brands and make a choice without hearing them in advance.

I hit the jackpot. Very happy. First I'll say that my esthetic and space requirements were met perfectly. I hooked them up and ran the calibration routine on my Pioneer Elite receiver. Then I sat back to listen... Wow. Wow.

Describing sound isn't easy. The first word that comes to mind is "natural". My reference CD is called "Jazz at the Pawnshop", a live jazz recording. The Pawn Shop sounds like a smallish place and in the beginning you can hear a lot crowd murmuring and clinking of glasses. I got it from the dealer I bought my first surround sound system from because if the surround sound works well you feel like you're in the middle of a jazz club.

I felt like I should reach for my glass and take a drink while the band revved up. The woodiness of the clarinet was so sweet. The vibes tinkled crisply. The base is punchy and balanced. I feel like I have a brand-new stereo system.

Another thing I noted when shopping was that I didn't read one complaint/con in any of the customer reviews. I don't have a single one to list either.

Many years ago I had a decent amplifier and speakers, and music was a constant in my life; somehow, over time, I let that system be replaced with lesser quality components. Partly I was seduced by the consolidation of functions into a home theater system, which unfortunately made listening to music more challenging and hence less frequent.

Recently I bought a new stereo for the dining room. I had envied friends with Klipsch speakers since college days (now 40 years ago, alas!), and so I ordered a pair of Klipsch bookshelf speakers. Wow, am I glad I did!

The setup was as simple as could be imagined, and the sound quality was every bit as delightful as I hoped it would be. I listened to Judy Collins, Joan Baez, and other cherished artists, and now their beautiful voices came through with no sense that a speaker stood between us: it was like having Joan sing for me in my home. Classical music is rendered faithfully, with clarity and grandeur. Once again Bach, Mozart, Vivaldi, and so many more touched my soul. I felt I had emerged from a long hiatus underground, and was now blinking in the warm sunlight.

I purchased these to go in the workout room so that I could hear the tv over the sound of the treadmill and step machine. Turning up the tv loud enough lead to ringing headaches after workouts.

So, I bought these and they are hooked up to an onkyo m-282 dedicated amplifier. They certainly outperform the tv speakers... But, I compared them with a pair of Phase Technology Teatro 4.5 on a yamaha rx-797 (A/B speaker buttons let you switch speakers instantaneously!) The Klipsch did sound clearer. BUT, the high frequency was so loud that it was sort of painful to listen to them compared with the phase techs.

Music with lots of cymbals was the worst. The mid range kind of disappeared and you were left with a substantial bass and painful cymbals. Because the whole reason for purchasing these was to make listening to the tv comfortable - I am going to give them some time, but I'm uncomfortable and I'm probably going to go listen to some alternatives at local audio stores.

I bought these because sonos was selling rb-51's as their recommended speaker pairs. So, I assumed the rb-61's must be pretty good as they were one step up from that model. But,after purchasing these and listening I did some research and learned that Klipsch's whole thing is their horn design. A horn allows you to move air more easily and apparently the Sonos amplifier is not very powerful. Sonos did not choose the rb-51's because they were the best speakers in that price range - they chose them because the horn is a good complement to their lower power amplifier. The horn around the tweeter is what is giving these speakers their loud high frequency response on the 100 watt onkyo amplifier I have driving them.

I'll update you as I continue testing. Please comment with any suggestions. Maybe I will just get another pair of phase techs.
