Speakers by them self are all the time on promo for $900 and most people say atmos is junk and you can probably get cheaper towers with same performance (no atmos). Also many have said Studio 580 or 590s are better for around the same price(no atmos). You can do your own search here and find out for your self's.

Any how the receiver looks good and price is a most.

I bought these towers a few weeks ago for $900 so I don't think the deal is that great, but I do recommend these speakers. I think they sound incredible and have a full range. I still haven't tested out the Atmos speakers since I already have some cheap in celling speakers installed (but I'll circle back). I was a little skeptical because I already had Definitive Technology BP7006 towers with built in subs, but these towers blew me away and caused me to start replacing all of my Def Techs. I was able to get on the 12" subwoofer deal from Fry's too.

Not so much that it's a bad price, it's just not slick. They're $380 on Amazon

So how light colored is the "cherry"? My entertainment unit is a chocolate brown. And I fear the cherry speakers next to it would look tacky. But ebony never goes on sale--at least not outside BF. Have black towers now that look fine. But been interested in upgrading to Klipsch RP line. And only deals I ever see are cherry colored. Is it too reddish or light? Or would you think it would work ok against chocolate brown entertainment unit?

Total audio newb here, but it appears the Yamaha A780 receiver is rated for 95 watts a channel. Is that sufficient to drive the RP-280FA that are listed at 150 watt speakers on Klipsch's website?

The Yamaha A780 will EASILY drive the RP-280FA speakers. 150 watts is a maximum.

These Klipsch speakers are very efficient. A 20-watt per channel tube amplifier will drive them.
