The Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System is The Most Popular Home Theater For a Reason!
There are so many options when it comes to home sound systems and in particular, home theatre systems but there are none that can match the value for money and the sound quality offered by the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System. There is no other home theatre system on the market that comes close. Before we see how well it performs, let’s take a look at what you get for your money.
The Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System includes:
- 4 gloss black 2-way Energy satellite speakers
- 1 gloss black Energy center channel
- 200 watt Energy sub-woofer with front firing port and 8″ driver complete with patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround(TM)
The overall build quality of Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System really is top-notch and way beyond what you would expect to get for the low price. The system has easily the nicest fit and finish of any of the speaker systems that are for sale within this price range.
The Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System comes carefully boxed in well designed Styrofoam cut-outs, with each of the speakers wrapped separately with foam sheets and then again in thick plastic. Thus when you unwrap them you will be taken aback by the high-gloss black finish that is totally flawless.
Wall and ceiling-mount options are plentiful with each speaker supporting both key hole and threaded insert style brackets. The sub-woofer has the typical L/R line level RCA inputs, variable volume control and crossover adjustments. There is also a two-way phase toggle and a three-way power toggle.
Considering the small size, the overall sound is really impressive. As with most micro/sub system the mid-bass region of the frequency spectrum is a little thin. However, the mid range performance of the 3.5″ titanium mid-driver makes up for a lot of that with velvety clear vocals. Center channel dialog comes through very clearly – a feat that not many speakers in this price range can claim.
The satellites do an equally excellent job with music and sound effects. While the 8″ sub will not shake your home’s foundation, it is more than enough to fill a small room with rich (not boomy) bass. The clarity and smoothness of the 3/4″ aluminum tweeter is most impressive and is on par with systems costing 3 to 4 times more! The speakers all have the same drivers in the same arrangement which yields a totally seamless sound field (the THX demo DVD really highlights this capability).
In summary, the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System is the real deal! It is capable of putting out amazingly high-quality sound. There are no other home theatre systems that come close to this which is why this is the number one selling home theatre system anywhere.
