I have owned RC3, RB25, RC62, RB81, RF82, RC62II. Sold them all!!!
Sure the RC62/RF82 combination isnt bad but I didnt think it had the bang for the buck. Sure I lost some money but I didnt pay full MSRP either. I paid $768 shipped for RF82, sold within 6 months and got $550 as it was basically brand new (I had not put in a lot of hours as I didnt like it). Who pays full MSRP, only doctors and lawyers pay full MSRP :-)
If I dont like a gear I just get rid of it and try something else. I have tried other mid level speakers like B&W 602 S2, PSB T6, Magnepan MG12, Def Tech CLR 2000/2002, Mirage ONMI60 etc. I had also listened to Paradign Studio series, Monitor Audio Silver, Vienna Aoustics Mozart (over my budget). So I didnt have anything new that I knew I would like and some dealers were also too far from my place. I saw the Klipsch KG 4.2 on ebay, bought it, liked it so bought the other KG line also.
I am not buying anymore speakers except KG 5.5 or KLF-10 but they are hard to come by locally. Still looking.
