I have both & prefer Klipsch because I am older & have hearing loss. The Klipsch are a lot better for me to understand the Dialogue with. I use my systems for Movies & TV.

I am using the front presence speakers on one of the systems. I am pretty sure the only thing noticeable using it is gives you the ability to use Dialogue Lift which is a nice feature for me.

Do any of this series last?

I have had my 709 since November of 2011. Plenty of ventilation & only running a 3.1 setup on that system. I am starting to get a little anxious about it.
Seems like I might be due for problems.
