Both will be very nice step up from what you have. I had Klipsch Synergy line before and love my new Reference II set up. Both are very similar 82II is little better speaker but if you using sub you will not feel that but it have that potencial. I also love look 8" woofers more so it is why I was looking only for 82II. Synergy tower was before F-3 ( also 8") so I swap it for RF-82II.
Check prices for both call Klipsch dealers (AVS, Sound distributors ( sometimes they have open boxes, for even lower price with full warranty). Good luck.

Assuming that the output to which you're referring is music... as always -- and as you can see from the replies you've already gotten -- the "correct" answer depends heavily on the type of music to which you listen.

If what you listen to is predominantly bass-centric... you'll more than likely be fine with some 62s and a sub.

If you listen to instrumental music where the primary emphasis is on its "mid-range" content -- cello, viola, oboe, bassoon, tenor sax, piano, guitar, vibraphone, acoustic bass -- like what is typically found in classical and jazz... the woofers in the 82s are going to provide a much broader and fuller and deeper level of accuracy and life-like realism to the tonality of those instruments, since their primary ranges (~80Hz-500Hz) are above that of a subwoofer's "normal" (~60Hz-80Hz) crossover.

Short answer, no. Many folks here went with the 62s for this reason. However, if money and space is no object, go for the 82s because there are some slight advantages. Nevermind if you have a sub or not, the low end extension on both speakers is fantastic.

What sub are you using?

What kind of Yamaha?
