While I'm not entirley certain that Klipsch will abandon Energy like they did with Athena, I honestly don't like the direction they are taking API.
With Energy, they are releasing new products, but have left Veritas to seemingly wither away. Even though they announced the development of a new Veritas line in January, still nothing has materialized. Then, they have recently eliminated the rosenut and cherry finishes in the RC series. In my opinion, this is an obvious tactic to steer the "furniture-grade" speaker shopper directly to Klipsch's new WF series speakers.
With Mirage, Klipsch has taken Ian Paisley's and Andrew Welker's pet and railroaded it into a cutsie lifestyle-geared product. Never again will we see a speaker from Mirage like the M-1. The new items being released are seriously uninspiring to me as a longtime Mirage dealer, and as a result, that line is going away in our store as well.
We are/were dealers for all of API's brands, and I am a proud owner of Athena's original SCT series speakers (the ones with the powered subs in them). We sold Athena up until the end and still have a couple demo systems in our showroom (WS and Point 5).
The irony of it all is that we are also Klipsch Reference and Heritage series dealers.
