Hello Again Beta Tester.
There's something you need to know about Klipsch Reference speakers. One of the main reasons why they sound so dynamic compared to other speakers is because of the efficiency of the Tractrix horn. The RF82's for example have a 98 dB sensitivity rating. Most speakers in it's class will be around 90 to 92 dB. So the Klipsch speaker will play louder at a lower volume level than it's competitors. Now, this does not mean that it's better, or more accurate or even clearer. What it does mean is that it has a wider dynamic range than most. In other words, it's easier to power, less resistance, if you will. I'll give you an example. My RF35's have a 97dB sensitivity. My Polk Audio RTi70's have a 91dB sensitivity. To compare, I had both sets connected to my Marantz AVR, (Fronts: A & B), when I switched from the Klipsch to the Polks, it was as if I turned the volume down a decibels or two. But that was not the case. I will also admit that on some of the tracks I played, the Polks seemed to be more realistic in reproduction. Warmer would be the proper description. The Klipsch's, well, they have a way of revealing nuances that the Polks couldn't, at the same volume level. That being said, I still like my RF35's over the RTi70's. Especially for movies!
