    Default Well, I think I've done enough damage for awhile...

    New acquisition, (mine are in black):
    Soundstage Editor's Choice: http://www.soundstage.com/revequip/energy_c9.htm

    Especially reassuring is the comparison to the $3500 B&W Nautilus 804.

    congrats, steve!
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    Steve those are nice speakers for sure, I took a look at the same pair as well as the c5s or the c7s they have factory seconds at good prices here in town. I was tempted but then I would have had to change all my speakers, if I did that I would have had the set up in the car as I wouldn't be allowed in the house:D

    Well, these and the Paradigm studio 100's were the only speakers I was interested in, in the sub $1500/pr set. I really hate used speakers, as I'm a fussy bastard--so goodbye Paradigms. These are brand new.

    Now, if we can just prod UPS to keep them in one piece...........

    Awesome buy! I've heard the C-7s, and I really liked them; maybe even more than I like my Klipsch. Certainly nice stuff. I am a little envious, though, as they go 6Hz lower than mine....:p


    ENJOY!!!!

    No sir, still have them. It's hard to sell audio in this small town. Having boxes made and shipping the things would net me about $160; not worthwhile.

    I have never had the chance to listen to Energy speakers, but those bad boys look as if they sound serious. I'm sure that you will run enough 2-channel juice through 'em to find out. Give us a report when you break 'em in Steve.

    Absolutely, I (of course) took the 3rd of May off. Scheduled delivery date, dont'cha you know.....:D

    They're gonna get punished, hehehehe.

    Speakers in my home must meet 2 critical criteria:

    1. They must sound good.
    2. They must be able to rock to nose-bleed levels.

    :D

    I have heard that they are more of a HT speaker than a music speaker. I will be looking forward to hearing what you think about them

    When you hear someone say something is more of a HT speaker, just ignore it...

    Seriously... there are so many audio snobs out there...

    Well, here's my take on that: I use all of my speakers for HT, so I guess any speaker I buy will be an "HT" speaker....right?

    I buy what sounds good and is a good value, I don't worry about hype or "what I should have."

    Review will most definitely be coming---but won't do much good; the C-9 is about to be discontinued. I don't know if Energy is doing a new connoisseur line, or ending the series.

    Get'm while they're hot.

    I'm 80% music, 20% movies I guess. I always pick with 2-channel audio in mind; I don't "do" surround.

    The salsa is delicious. A little squeeze of lime...yummy! :p

    I can't wait to check out the Energy's. Should be fun. I will bring Jennette this time.
