Haha we have been debating this over and over... Look back and you will see Soupy1970 and I have chatted about this A LOT.

I would ask what set up are you going for? 5.1, 5.1.4, 7.1, etc.

5.1 I would suggest surround.

To be honest right now 5.1.....But waiting to see what CES hold for Klipsch Atmos solution, Klipsch rumor to have a addon upward firing speaker.

Then why ask this question NOW???

No matter what we suggest, you wouldn't like the answer.

Go with Bose. Visit their thread for recommendations.

How can anyone answer a question that you admitted to wanting to wait until CES to see what's available? By your own admission, you want suggestions on a 2014 model, but are really waiting for the 2015 models to come out.

It's a question that just wasted precious moments I could have used to answer a legitimate question.

So, my speakers from NFM arrived today...2 RF82II's and an RC62II. The boxes certainly looked like they'd been around the block a time or two but they were in reasonable condition. One of the 82's box had a hole in it and both looked like they'd been opened before and re-taped but everything inside looked untouched. After unboxing, everything looked perfect and the serials on all the boxes matched the speakers inside so, that's a plus! Now I just need to set everything up.
Overall I'm extremely happy with my purchase from NFM especially considering the price. Now I'm just waiting for the RS52II's I ordered to come in stock so I can complete my setup!

I usually don't listen to music a lot, but tonight my daughter and boyfriend was in the theater room listening to what I think they called dubstep. Anyway, I went down and cranked it up a little, than started playing with the direct feature on my AVR. I was blown away by how much my Klipsch KLF's can slam. The 4 10" woofers didn't even look like they were moving much at all. My setup is in my sig, and you can see I have two very capable subs. I was just amazed that my two mains in direct mode slammed just as hard, and actually sounded better than when played with a 60Hz crossover and the subs engaged.

I think I might start listening to music more often now.

My subs are set in Ported Max Extension Mode: 1 port open, and operating mode switch set to ‘EQ1. Maybe Ported Max Output Mode: 2 ports open, and operating mode switch set to ‘EQ2 would be better for music, but still I am blown away how well the KLF's sound playing music in direct mode.

I agree with Mattman. Really depends on your setup. For 5.1 you can't go wrong with either one, but the nudge probably goes to the RS-52 (I think your sig, says you use RF-82 as mains). The RB-61, or RB-81 are no slouches either, and if money is tight would be a very capable alternative. If you are doing 7.1, or 7.1.4 than bookshelves all the way is my opinion for one row seating. If you need to spread around between multiple rows than the RS-52 gets the nudge again for side surrounds in 7.1, but in 7.1.4 I am sticking with my opinion that bookshelves probably work best for Atmos. .
