Klipsch would be better for movie and gaming. The Synergy speakers sound nice, people that have had problems with horn speakers have not set them up properly. Most theater in the USA use Klipsch speakers because of their dynamic range, ability to play louder and easy of driving the speakers. But, you really need to listen for yourself and not purchase speakers off other people preferences. It also depends on the room and other gear, on how well a particular setup work. $10,000 speakers not properly setup will not impress you!
