Yes, definitely! RC-minis are a great sounding little speaker... do they happen to have their mounts still with them too?Thanks for the reply’s. @deano66 I would take you on your offer but I live in Canada so it may be hard and expensive to ship... I found 2 sets of rc mini for approx 100$ CAD for each set. Do you think that is a good price?
Thanks a lot for your thoughts Bubba Buoy. I ordered the RC-LCRs to try out. If I like the RC-30's better, I can always use the RC-LCRs in another setup since they are so versatile. I could also probably sell them for a slight profit since they are pretty rare these days. I am currently running my setup with a SVS SB-1000 sub (in a townhouse where I cant really use too much bass). Whenever I move into a larger place, I have two S10.3's that I will use in the HT with this setup, so I'm not too worried about the low end. When that happens, I'll use the SB-1000 with my Veritas V2.2i's in a 2.1 music setup.
So I finally had a chance to set up my new RC-LCR's on top of the RC-30's and do some comparisons with a speaker selector so I could do directly A/B comparisons. I checked the volume between them to make sure their sensitivity was close and they were within 1/2 decible. I had set up the new LCR's in the basement playing for a week or so when i first got them to make sure they were broken in.Thanks again to everyone for their input. I'll try to follow up with some feedback after I get the LCR's broken in and can do some comparisons. It might be a while though.
I think they made those until 2014 or perhaps even more recently. The age of them wouldn't concern me, especially if they were leftovers new in the box, or gently used...Would you guys still consider buying the Energy CF-70 speakers in 2021?
I have a stereo system in my home office. Previously it was just for the occasional TV viewing on a small TV and my NHT SuperZero 2.1 Mini-Monitors were passable. However, since adding an Apple AirPort Express with optical output, I've been listening to more music, and those little bookshelf speakers just aren't cutting it.
However, I may be able to get a pair new for similar to the periodic sales on this speaker model a decade ago. Is it still worth it these days? When did they stop making these?
For reference: My front speakers in my home theatre are Paradigm Reference Studio 60 from eons ago, and my front speakers in my living room are Paradigm Monitor 7 also from eons ago. This would be my third set of towers.
Thanks for the advice guys. I was all ready to purchase but it was false advertising on the store website. It claimed they had one new pair and one open box pair. Nope. They were trying to sell off their demo, but it wasn't "gently used". Too bad.I think they made those until 2014 or perhaps even more recently.

I had the bookshelf version (CB-20) until recently and they were showing no signs of age. Great sound for the price, in my opinion.
Sorry , I have 2 areas set up.. my main theater has the paradigm , my living room currently has the rc-50, Rc-lcrif your center sounds weak why not get the RC-LCR center instead of the RC-70's to replace the RC-50's?
I'm interested in this as well. There is nothing about the 2.4i's that I don't like, but my exposure to high end audio is limited so I'm curious how much better it gets. Cost is probably prohibitive of me ever making a significant upgrade though unfortunately unless I find a real bargain.Has anyone upgraded from the Energy Veritas 2.4i to something else? While I really enjoy the sound I'm getting out of them (paired with a SVS SB12+ sub), the upgradeitis itch has struck.
I visited a local dealer this past weekend and demoed the KEF Blade, Revel F22BE, and Paradigm Persona 7F. The Blades were the only model that really caught my attention as I was immediately struck by both the coherence and the bass impact. I didn't care for the Paradigms at all (sounded slightly congested with an odd bloom in the lower midrange) and while the Revels didn't jump out, they also didn't do anything wrong (this is a good thing - I've been eying the Revel Salon 2 so the primary goal of my visit was to get a feel for the Revel "sound signature"). TBH I would have a hard time choosing either F22BE or Persona 7F over the Veritas and that's even before price comes into play.
Curious if any previous Veritas 2.4i owners have upgraded "successfully" and if so, with what speakers?
