I put this in the Klipsch forum, thought I would post it here too.
I've had my new speakers for a couple months so I thought I would *try* to write a review of sorts of my setup. I've only had one other speaker system which was a harmon kardon HKTS-18 7.1 setup so this is what I'm comparing to as far as my experience. I thought they were pretty decent and will be set up in the bedroom as soon as my other AVR comes in. I wanted to get some floor standers for my next set up and after a bit of research I went with Klipsch. I wish I could have had the opportunity to hear some other brands, but I have absolutely no regrets in my purchase since having them and listening to them. Movies are a whole new experience and I've been re-watching a lot movies just to see how they sound. I know that I probably could have saved some money on my surrounds and rear surrounds by going a bit smaller, but my whole thing was that I wanted to future proof and be able to rock out in any room I may ever have. Being in the military, I move more than the average person and who knows what kind of house I'll end up in next. I also didn't want to worry about upgrading and having the 'what if' question in my head. It was my first major stereo purchase and I wanted to get what I wanted to get. I would have loved to go with RF-7II and RC-64II, but that was a touch out of my price range. I was lucky the wife let me do what I did, and again, no complaints/regrets and I really don't see myself upgrading to those anytime soon, if ever.
RF-82II - Kind of hard to review in HT as they blend well with the center channel. I guess the best way I can describe them as being very full sounding. I hear details in the soundtrack that I never really heard before. I also love listening to music with them in stereo. I haven't done extensive music listening as I usually just throw last.fm on when I'm getting ready for work in the morning, but when I'm sitting there and actually listening I just can't help but appreciate the sound coming from them and that's even from an internet streaming source. I need to start listening to my CD collection again. I would love to give these things some more power, and will be able to do that when my new 4311 comes in, so I may have more to say about these in the near future.
RC-62II - I wasn't expecting a center channel to be this large, ha ha. Especially after going from what I had before. Dialogue is always clear and again, I'm hearing new things all the time. There are times that I have to turn it up if I'm listening at low volumes (1 year old sleeping). I can't really blame this on the speaker but more on the dynamic range of movie recordings. If I'm listening at the volume I normally listen at, I'm never straining to hear what they are saying, which I did sometimes on my last center channel.
RS-62II - Some of you may find this odd, but I have to say these are probably my favorite part of my system. The surround sounds are the best part of watching 5.1/7.1 movies imo. Every time I watch a movie I comment to my wife that I love surround sound and my speakers. I really like the dispersive sound of the RSs. I'm sure I would have been happy with direct firing speakers as well, but for the surrounds I absolutely love the bipole sound. There are times when 5.1 sounds like 7.1 the way the sound moves behind you, it just seems really seamless from right to left or vice versa like the sound is also moving across the rear surrounds. I would highly recommend trying out some bipoles in your system if you don't have them. They aren't for everybody, but they are definitely for me and if I ever buy another system, I will be going with bipoles again.
RB-81II - I feel bad using these as rear surrounds because I feel they would work very well as front speakers and they don't get much usage. I'm not really a fan of using matrixed settings as I prefer to listen to the soundtrack as it was intended. Hopefully more and more 7.1 movies keep getting released so they get more use. When they do get used, they sound fantastic. The last movie I watched with 7.1 was Transformers 3 and holy cow! Every speaker in the system got a work out including these. They just tie everything together and just like every other speaker they are clear and full sounding. I don't have too much more to say about these because of their lack of usage, but I'm glad they are back there when I need them.
SW-115 - I can only compare this to the 10" sub I had before, but I am far from dissatisfied with this thing. It blends extremely well with the rest of my system and can rumble the house when it needs to. I'm sure it could even sound better with some tweaking or different placement, but with my small space I'm a bit limited in experimentation. At any rate, I think it sounds awesome *all* the time. With movies it rumbles and punches just like it should, and with music it sings. The sound is tight with no 'boomyness'. With music, it compliments the 82 IIs very nicely. Again, bass notes are tight and pronounced but not overpowering. I think it sounds perfect with the rest of my system and will be picking another one up when I save up the money. I wish I had more experience with some of the internet direct sub companies to make more of a comparison, but I can tell you that this sub sounds great to me, and in the end, that's all that matters.
This is my first 'review' of these speakers. I hope you all enjoyed reading. If you can't tell, I really love my new speakers and my wife is quickly becoming a fan as well. I have not gotten any harshness or fatiguing that I've heard you can get with Klipsch. Maybe the newer ones are toned down a tad to avoid this. I can and will recommend Klipsch to anybody wanting to buy HT speakers. I'm definitely a fan =^)
