Just received my pair of RC-10s. Please keep in mind I am totally new to the audio world. There are two sets of plugs for the speaker. One with a H (assuming it means High) and one with a L (Low). Which one should I be using?
Does that imply you prefer one for music and one for HT? If so which?
for HT use definitely the veritas ,for music that's when I get confused I love the laid back sound of the RCs. but love the dynamics ,clarity ,transparency and open sound of the veritas and yes they do have a forward sound but not to the point that will left the instruments way behind the singer, is a balanced forward sound.because I suffer from tinnitus I will have to choose the RC-s for music, even that the transparency and clarity is not on the same level as the veritas.

Is this speculation, or do we know for sure that the new $219.88 price is temporary and will only last "this week"?
When I saw that seemingly permanent, non-sale, super-low price pop up, I figured: this is it! they are blowing out the last of the RC-10 stock, but of course, that too is speculation
Anyone talk with Vann's about this?
if you truly can't do both right now... here's the way to think about it in the short term until you complete the set:
- RC-10's plus monster sub will be superior for HT. The subwoofer is just SO important for home theater.
- RC-70's w/o sub will be superior for music. All of the aforementioned advantages of the RC-70 vs. smaller RC speakers will really shine for critical music listening.
- if you go sub first, you do run the risk of missing out on these great RC-70 deals from Vanns. Who knows when they stop this arrangement? On the other hand, there will ALWAYS be awesome subwoofers.
An alternate option (which you already thought about) is to get a "fill in" sub to hold you over until you can afford a monster. This is a great idea if you are willing to eat a small loss on the sub as a "rental fee" (or can repurpose it to a smaller setup in the future when you upgrade). I do agree though with CEL that I wouldn't go with the BIC sub for such a nice setup, it will produce a decent amount of output but will be flabby compared to the RC's. I think a better choice as a fill-in sub would be the S10.3 at its awesome sale prices at Newegg. You aren't going to get monster sub output or extension but it has very low distortion and will hit clean and tight, it will be a better complement to RC-70's in the short term and you can probably resell for a $50 loss at worst in the future.
so my advice would be, if you truly can't afford both, go with the RC-70's and an S10.3 for now and then upgrade the sub down the road when you can afford to get what you really want. The only exception would be if it was a dedicated HT setup (very little critical music use) in which case the sub will be very important, but in your case with a mixed use setup I think RC-70 + S10.3 will make you very happy, and then when you do upgrade the sub you will really appreciate the difference.
Thanks for the help batpig and several others! After deliberating on this for a while I finally made my decision and bought a SVS PC12-NSD sub today. I realized the RC-70's are just a want of mine and am pretty happy with the 4xRC-10 and RC-LCR setup I have and am very unhappy with my current subwoofer (Mirage Prestige S8) in that it sounds like crap every time I watch a movie now that it's trying to fill this bigger space. I think the sub gives me a complete setup and if I had got the RC-70's it would still sound incomplete. I know with the RC-70's it would sound better once I got a sub but I feel I can live without the RC-70s more than I can missing out on the low end and constant chuffing every time a big LFE sequence kicks in. I also picked up a pair of the V-Surrounds to move to a full 7.1 (I couldn't resist the $170 sale on them). I can't wait till this stuff gets delivered later this week! I'm looking forward to the new subwoofer and comparing the RC-10's to the new V-Surrounds once they arrive.
I was checking the Vanns website and they are out of RC-LCR speakers. Sold out! there are only two refurbs. I was down to Montana (Kalispell) last week and went into a Vanns store and there were almost no energy products to be found, only a pair of veritas 6.3. no RC's at all. add that to FutureS selling the veritas towers cheaper and no RC-70's to be found and i think we are coming closer to the end of an era.

Amazon has some RC LCR from other vendors for a decent price. Don't know if Vanns is temporarily out of stock or if this is a permanent thing.
We've been down this road before and thought they were all gone...and suddenly the LCR reappeared.
According to Amazon site, they say they only have 2 RC-70's in stock from Vanns. Hmm...who knows what Klipsch/Energy/Audiovox is doing?
I hope my 3rd one coming from the other side of the country isnt damaged. My 2nd RC70 looks like it fell off a truck doing 100 and was then repacked by UPS in a box 4 times its size and no extra packing and left at my door.

Even if that happens, I'm not without hope. Since they already carry some Energys, I'm crossing my fingers that Newegg starts selling them at the fire sale prices they often have for Polk
well all I know is that the veritas are not longer in production and are discontinued .But they told me that they will continue selling the RC-70s,That they still have over a hundred of rc-70s in stock.they told me that they have another order of rc-70s from energy .all I know is that, but I didn't ask about the RC-LCR, it can be possible that they will sell then again,because they went out of stock the same time the rc-70s went out of stock last time.
If I were in the US I'd order them just in case I ever need another pair. But I'm trying to see if fetching them at the closest Kinek point would be doable in the next 30 days. There's also Google's Nexus 7 that grabbed my attention at this price point
How much of an "upgrade" are RC-10s compared to the Energy Take Classics?
I know they are obviously better, and at $200.00 right now at Vanns they are a steal.
But i just upgraded a couple of months ago from a HTITB to a Denon 1912 and the Take Classics set, so it would be kind of soon of me to spend more money right now, considering that i would have to get the RC-LCR too.
So, is it necessary?, is there that much diffrence for a small to medium size living room?
Hello everyone. I am getting two Outlaw Audio 2200 monoblocks that I scored for a very good price on Ebay. My question is: I currently have my RC-50's biamped with my Pioneer SC-25 using the rear surrounds. I have lost one of the jumpers for my 50's so I'm not sure how to biamp using the new setup. I was hoping someone could help. I was gonna just put the jumpers back in and run it normally but now I can't:mad: I hope this is right place to post this:eek: Any help would be appreciated,Tim
