Pros: Clean, clear sound! Looks good too!

Other Thoughts: Had this speaker for a few months now and am completely pleased and satisfied. This was a replacement for an Athena center channel speaker. Very nice upgrade!

5 out of 5 eggsNot Surprised. It's KLIPSCH

Pros: Distortion free, clean at full power on my Pioneer VSX-1121-K
It has amazing depth, separation. Gorgeous design without the magnetic front mesh grill.

Cons: Not a single CON for this hardcore, audiophile techie.

Other Thoughts: Don't think twice. It's Klipsch Reference. I GUARANTEE you will have your expectations met, and beaten.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Center Speaker

Pros: Very clean sound. This speaker flat out blows away my old center speaker. All these years I've been missing out on truly great sound. Very pleased that I bought this one.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I used 14 gauge speaker wire connected to Onkyo 609 receiver.

5 out of 5 eggsExcelent center, but pricey!!

Pros: Just looking at the speaker without even listening to it (Klipsch built quality shows), you could tell this center speaker is very special, it is impressive in appearance. Its performance is equaly impressive, my first impression was how crystal clear, dymamic and efficent this speaker is. The more I listen to it, the more I notice how it created the sense that "you are there". If you are into home theater, where some 60% of sound comes from center channel, please give this a test drive. You might be pleasantly surprise.

Cons: Expensive. It's up to you to decide if it worths your hard earn cash. For me, it's worths every pennies. (If money is no object, you might want to look at the RC-64 II).

Other Thoughts: There are many good center speakers out there. If you could, do a side-by-side comparision so you can make an informative decision. I thought I had a very good center channel until I replaced it with the RC-52. Now I have an used "very good" center channel speaker that I don't think I ever want to go back.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Center Speaker, the best I ever owned !!!

Pros: - Very high quality center speaker
- Very high quality material, look and feel
- Excellent sound, definitely very loud powered by the Onkyo SX607 receiver running at 105Watts or 90Watts

Cons: No Cons.

Other Thoughts: I would recommended this center speaker to anybody. I have 2 x RS 42 II for Surround, RC 52 II center and the Klipsch VF-36 Floorstanding Speakers hooked up to the Onkyo SX607 at 105 watts per channel and bi-amp for the Floorstanding and a 10inch Klipsch sub. The set up is incredible and the whole house shakes by just using 25% power :)
