Looks like they are clearing out stock of the old model (compares with Energy Classic Take 5 per a few web reviews), to make room for the new model $248.71, taking pre orders. Either probably a great starter system for a smaller listening environment.

No, this is not the version that is similar to the Energy Take Classic. It is a common mistake as Monoprice sells two similar looking models of 5.1 HT Speaker sets.

- A cheaper version with a 60W subwoofer (item # 8247) which usually sells for less than $100. Lowest it went this year was $63 back in June. This is the model that is currently listed at $84.10.

- A more expensive model (the one which is compared to the Energy Take Classic) had the item # 9774 and usually sold for $250. It comes with a 200W subwoofer and the lowest it went was around $160 this year just before it was discontinued and replaced with a newer version (item # 10565).
