I am a long time enthusiasts starting with my good old Klipsch Promedia v2-400's when I was in high school! Which to this day, 9yrs later, still work properly! I moved on to a klipsch synergy SF1 5.1 setup & a KSW-12 a couples years after my promedia purchase. The older synergies sounded a bit harsh to my ear so I eventually moved to Axiom speakers. I ran 4 Axiom M3v2 bookshelfs, matching center and an SVS PCi sub. Excellant sound, but during college I sold it to pay some bills. Since then I've been using my good old Promedia V2-400 in my living room! I did however get into car audio for awhile; Installed some nice CLass T amps, infinity kappa perfect components, dual SoundSplinter RL-p 12" DVC, and a custom integrated CarPC ala mp3car.com...
I've been done with school and working full time for some time now (years) and decided to indulge myself!
My recent experiance with Klipsch & Accoustech:
I was out with the girlfriend strolling around Best Buy and decided to purchase a Klipsch Icon 5.1 setup: VB-15, VS-14, VC-25 and I ordered a PA-120 to top it off! (Based on reviews of the PA-100 I had seen)
I must say, despite these Icons being the low end they do sound damn smooth and accurate. The papercone woofers hidden beneath are my only real complaint! They don't seem to have the stones to properly reproduce electric guitars and the like.
When I received my PA-120 I wasn't sure what to expect, the box looks like something you'd see at walmart! But I must say, as soon as I opened it up and saw the hand laquered top I was very impressed! It seems to have propery weight and build quality. Now this things doesn't hit like the RL-p's nor go as low as the SVS I owned. But in its frequency range it is very accurate and smooth sounding. Not really lacking in anything but extension. Overall, I was blown away at the quality obtained at such a bargain price!Accoustech Platinum Series:
Being a bit of a bang for your buck kind of guy I decided to look into an entire Accoustech 5.1 setup!
I emailed sounddistributers (I bought the PA120 from them) and asked for a best price for the PL89 towers, PL28 center, and HT63 surrounds! Being a former customer offering to buy straight through paypal I was offered the setup for $799 shipped! I promptly payed and they are now in the mail!!
I am very excited and will post pics when they arrive!!
The user switching from KSW-10 should be very excited! I owned a KSW-12 for a year and the PA-120 I recently picked up blows it away in cosmetics, build quality, and sound quality.
