The RC-70's that had previously sold, I cancelled, or rather gave the eBay buyer the option of backing out, because while packing up I noticed some new blemishes

I've had trouble searching the ad, so here is a link:

Energy Speakers RC Series Rosenut System

My tablet is only allowing one picture to be added, so I'll have to update pics later.

I still have the S12.3sub and for me it works great. Better subs out there since the S12.3was introduced, yes. If you can purchase it for $350 or under and in good condition I would really consider it. As far as the RC-R's I have owned those as well but sold all of mine off. Preferred the Veritas line, newer or older to the RC-R. If you already have the RC line in pace then having the RC-R will round out your system. Some people like to match all around and some don't. Pricing on the RC-R, $500 or below depending on condition.

Otherwise, separate prices are below.

Those of you I've been pm'ing have rights to the pairs if I don't get a buyer for the whole lot. You know who you are.

2.0ci: $400
2.4i: $1200
2.0ri: $400
2.2i: $550
PC-13U: $750
Denon 4306: $800

Plus shipping. Or will travel halfway if you pay my gas.

I do have the original boxes for everything I bought new.

Any of these speakers still for sale?

Ive got some stuff

Cool thanks baron.

If cost wasn't an issue-would u guys rather buy the rc line new from Amazon over frys? I've bought 7 rc 70s from frys for my 7.2(pretty much all were banged up). Does Amazon ship better?

I think it's possible Amazon would double box them. Plus you may be closer to an Amazon warehouse than a Frys one. I've been a Prime member for over 2 years now and order lots of stuff off Amazon. Yet to have anything show up damaged from the shipping. Have had items show up defective, but not because the box was thrashed. Shame you don't live close to a Frys. I just drove down and picked up a pair of the RC-70s. No risk there. lol

Seems like every time I check this thread the discussion is about Fry's having a sale of RC70s or speculation of when their next sale will be. lol

hi,

I used to be a member here a few years back and left to pursue due to family and other hobbies. I still own and use Energy speakers and I am slowly getting back into home theater as I just purchased a new tv. Are they still around? When I left they had been acquired by Klipsh.

Audiovox has since purchased from Klipsch. The connoisseur line is still around and Fry's still has some stock on the reference connoisseur lineup, but at some point - probably soon, they will be gone, and the general consensus is that the only new Energy gear we can expect to see are soundbars and entry-level satellite speakers.

If you want some RC-70's you better buy them now while they're on sale for $229 each or $199 each with promo code. Sales ends July 4, looks like in store only.

How often does the LCR go on sale? I'd spring for the 70's, but how long am I going to have to wait for a decent price on the center?

The center went down to $200 apiece about a month ago and stayed at the price for about 2 weeks I think.
I got one, not very happy though

If you're not happy with the LCR I'm sure you could find someone in this forum to take it off of your hands...

It's just me that "not happy" with the LCR, at least for now.
There are a few factors play a role into that.
a. this series of speaker is too laid-back as I reported many times. Even, I'm a fan of music, this series is way too warm, way too ........ lazy.
b. I pair the LCR with my Sonus Faber LR and it doesn't sound good. Yes, I know it's not timbre matched and it might well be the issue ........ for me not to happy about it.

I will keep the Energy series, in fact, I'm continuously looking for the RC-10 to go onsale to complete the 5.1 (minus the .1 for now ) system.

It's just me that I've never put anything for sale before. All my old working stuff is either trashed, donated, or given to some relatives.
I might have started put them on sites for sale to make some bucks.
