I actually just bought an RF-52 system so I'm out of the market, but this looks (very) good.

Most of the bundles I've seen recently are very specific; they've been good discounts but you end up married to a lot of components. ~$1200 for these with the sub is a great start for a good high-midlevel system.

Also, I know from experience that, net of fees, you can probably get $500+ back on eBay for the sub (or maybe do even better on CL).

Obviously you're joking, but $1k+ on speakers probably isn't even top 25% for people who get into home theater (or home audio in general). The nice thing about speakers is, if you get a good set, you're set for over a decade (the tech doesn't really change much). People have different preferences when it comes to brands, but you will have absolutely no trouble selling these guys (w/ sub) for close to $1k five years from now.

Would you recommend any good high level system which you consider a good deal ?

Internet direct speaker companies like Ascend Acoustics, Swan, ARX, Aperion Audio, SVS, NHT, EMPtek, Salk Sound, HSU, etc make quality speakers with great pricing. If you don't mind a cosmetic blemish or two, inquire about B-stock to take off 10%. Some of the companies work shipping and free returns into their pricing, so you can demo speakers risk free in your home. Best bang for your buck is to DIY and build your own speakers/subwoofers. Internet Direct companies would be the next best option for saving money on high quality speakers and subwoofers.

If you are considering Klipsch, might as well head over to a Best Buy or Fry's to demo the speakers. Granted they will sound different in your home, but it gives you a good idea what the speakers will sound like. Not everyone like the bold highs on these modern Klipsch horn loaded speakers.

For home theater use, I wouldn't even bother with tower speakers as you will have a subwoofer covering frequencies below 80hz better than your speakers. Save some money and go with bookshelf speakers for your mains. For the same price you could buy superior bookshelf speakers. If 2 channel audio is your end game, then yeah larger floor standing speakers would be ideal to cover the lower frequencies.

I am in the same boat though my rf-52 system is about a year older.

Seems like pretty good reviews on this set. Anyone know how this set compared to the Energy Take 5 Classic 5.1?

It's like asking how is Honda Accord compared to Audi S8. My friend, I am not saying Honda accord is a bad car, I mean it might be one of the best consumer car... But these are two different leagues

I can't tell if you're joking or not. Although Klipsch owns Energy, I don't think you could come up with a set that's more different. The Take 5 Classic is a very good satellite speaker system (think speakers the size of most desk computer sets) with an 8" sub. These guys are substantial floorstanding speakers. These are about the size of an average 1st grader with a larger sub.

Basically, the Take 5 is what you'd want in a bedroom or dorm room. This is what you would want in your living room.

so basically you dont really need a center speaker if you put this in an average size bedroom?

just moving into a new home with a open home theater area with a screen and projector....

saw the frys ad for the infinity 363 and 153 on sale, so bought a pair of each for $314 total.....

I'm assuming this is way better, but at the same time much more expensive - would a non-audiophile be able to tell the difference, and if i go with this setup, I still need to purchase bookshelf and center speaker correct?

This is a nice set of speakers. Comes up to about 45% off retail. About as good as I have seen!

I think you got a good deal at Fry's, but this is a totally different ballpark. Even for a non-audiophile, this will sound etter than what you have, but it's really hard to quantify if this is 4x better. If you're a computer nerd, think of it like this: your TV's built-in speakers are shit, like integrated graphics. The set you bought is probably equivalent to like a Radeon 6550. These guys are like a Radeon 6950. I guess what I'm saying is rational people can come to different conclusions regarding what level of speakers they need.

Whether or not you need bookshelfs and a center is really up to you. With these, you have a solid sub and solid fronts. With more speakers, the sound starts coming from different directions (obviously) and a center can sometimes help with dialog. I would be tempted, though, to see what things sound like with this. It's entirely possible that you'll be fine w/ 2.1.
