Bottom Line:   
I purchased these from Audio Advisor on closeout for 400/pr+shipping. I went from some old Athena Technology
bookshelves which were great for the money. After doing some research, I concluded these are basically another step up just below going nuts with audiophile gear. They are designed by the same dude who did the Athenas years back and the co. is Canadian/mfg in China. Since speakers are limited by their source-mine
is a humble Best Buy Harman Kardon reciever with a Rega table. These speakers deliver the goods when positioned correctly with your room. Based on friends opinions with over the top systems, my system
rocks for what it is. Speakers aren't quite broken in yet, but the mids and highs are very clear. Bass gets a
little flabby with music thats demanding, but my sub takes over when needed. I would have done the 50's
if they were available when I purchased these. Maybe hooked up to a nice analog setup with quality cables,
then, you could really hear what these boxes can do?

Bottom Line:   
I bought a pair of these from Audio Advisor cause they were on sale. I moved my B&W 805's to another system and put these in the HT. For starters these DO NOT sound better then my 805's. I moved them to my two channel tubed system. They don't image as well, they don't disappear as well and the highs are not as clean as the B&W's. Now, that being said this is still a very fine speaker. Although they take forever to break in, I waited for the bass to firm up. When you get these brand new the sound is hard and lifeless. The mids and highs start to get better after a few hours. And within a couple of days your sailing right along. But the bass is another thing. Right out the box you have low frequency and that's all. No definition no tunefulness just low sound. But after about a week of constant play they loosen up. The bass has gotten a lot better and the speakers have really bloomed. I listen to jazz mostly with classical and a lot of vinyl thrown in and these little beauties don't disappoint. Nice sound stage and they do vanish, to a point. I highly recommend them

I got this pair of speakers from audio advisor for around $680 shiped.
I sold my old b&w cdm 1nt and got these instead.
I am not a audiophile but i love to listen to music.
These speakers are Amazing for movies but i would say are above ok for music.
They do have a punchy bass but is not EXTREMLY CLEAN OR TIGHT.
i feal that the treable is not as crisp in music as it is in the movies.
They are not as detailed as the b&w speakers in music.
If you love movies they would blow your mind away.!!!!!! by far better then the b&w in movies.
ooooooo and the finish is outstanding.very well build.
Sorry for broken english

I have owned the take 5 satelite set for a few years now, and decided to upgrade my towers. I have always liked the looks and of course the sound of energy speakers so decided to purchase energy towers. I was looking into the c5 and found that i liked the syling of the c30 reference con. better. These speakers look so rich and they sound even better. The cabinet is so small and the sound is so big. I got the speakers for half price on sale so i think i got a steal of a deal. These speakers sound great with my hip hop music and also sound great with home theater

Hi people out there. I own this speaker for 3 weeks. During demostration in the hifi shop sound is powerfull nice and balance. But went it come to my home is a bit to booming, Maybe is because i place this speaker at corner so it produce to much bass a booming sound. Will figure out to solve this problem, wait for my next review

HARD EARN $ ON HIFI
