I suggest the Energy RC-10 bookshelf speakers as your FL + FR or try to...

I've got a pair of V-Moda M-80 on ear hp's that I really like. Very comfortable, durable, and they weren't expensive (bought them used on head-fi).

I agree that trying on sets of headphones is a...

I have heard the exact opposite about the Signature Series speakers. Perhaps the set you heard requires more break in? Or perhaps it was paired with some electronics that...

The ELAC EA101EQ-G Integrated Amplifier is a very good value as it delivers 80 watts per channel into a 4 ohm load (So, it's 40 watts per channel into an 8 ohm load which is something...

Greetings Justin,

I currently own the Dynaudio DM 2/6 mini monitor. I would say it compares / is similar to the UB5. Both speakers feature a small mid/bass driver. Obviously, the difference is...

I guess so, as the fine folks over in the Energy owner's thread seem to prefer the old Veritas to the old RC line. IIRC, those that have heard both consider the RC to be an HT speaker, whereas the...

When I heard the C1 Platinum for the first time, it was pressurizing a hotel room / suite very well.

I understand what you're saying though; a big speaker like the C4 needs room to breath.

Very nice journey! I like the Mocha finish on the Confidence series as well. I think the Bordeaux High Gloss looks attractive in the photos but I've never seen it in person.

I think the Dynaudio are laid back as well but they supply so much detail over the Energy speakers.

I am very impressed with their ability to replicate the details in the music and their accuracy.

The floor standing speakers are Energy RC-70. They definitely have the edge on bass response ;-)
