Took a giant leap of faith and jumped all over those "Like New" prices on Amazon.
Got (2) RF-82 II's for $799 shipped (Like New, open box), an RC-64 II for $970 shipped (Like New, open box), and (2) RS-52 II's for $595 shipped (Like New, open box). Keeping my Paradigm Sub 25 (duh, like that was even an option).
My father has the old Reference line of Klipsch in his family room, uncalibrated, running off an ancient Denon AVR. I have always enjoyed watching movies in this room (though my theater room is a whole different ball game for many reasons). I figure with a properly treated room, ARC correction software, proper placement.....I will enjoy the Klipsch's in my theater room if I can enjoy them in such a simple setup as his family room. The biggest excitement I have is finally having High Sensitivity speakers capable of keeping up with my movie listening demand.
Will post results once I have it setup, calibrated, and demoed some familiar scenes.
finally seen the "Light " Huh !
Yeah you will be amazed & I know that you will treat the room right ,
best if you aim the 82's & keep them off the walls they need room the breathe if you will toe them in that the horns are aimed @ the M L P
Try to get the surrounds at or near ear level on their placement on the walls
make sure the center channel is about a inch over the edge of the entertainment center's shelf , that really important ! & slightly aimed up if they are below the display
Have Fun !
