This review is from: Klipsch HD Theater 600 Home Theater System
Pros: Look nice.
Bought in a combo deal that made the price of these $300.
Cons: I'm really unhappy with these, and I attribute that to already owning a KEF 5.1 set that I bought on sale for $200 (set with white satellites) that are vastly superior to these Klipsch. It's not so much the sound from the satellites, but the bass difference between the 2 is night and day, and they're both 200w subs. I feel like someone is abusing the Klipsch name for some nice profits and I got duped... These Klipsch need an MSRP of $350 max.
Also be aware that you can't return these to Newegg; they are 30-day replacement only, so be extra sure these are what you want.
This review is from: KEF KHT1005.2SE Home Audio Speaker System w/ White Satellite Speakers
Pros: Paired these with a YAMAHA RX-V373BL so I paid under $400 for a home theater system, but it sounds like so much more. The mids and highs are crystal clear, but what blew me away was the base. My family and I live in a middle-class 2 story house and even standing on the second floor on the opposite side, that 8" sub makes you think your house is about to implode during an action scene in a movie, and I have the bass knob on the sub in the middle...
Cons: Center channel is the same shape as the rest of the channels so you can't place it in front of the TV. I have mine underneath sitting on the receiver instead.
Other Thoughts: I needed a second 5.1 system and really wanted to get another one of these sets while they're $200, but the shape of the center channel made me look around and I found a Klipsche set on sale with a dedicated center satellite, but cost me $100 more for the whole system. If you're on a budget, you won't find better speakers than these KEF.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Usual Seasonic quality. No coil whining whatsoever, and I have sensitive ears for that...
Cons: Someone at Seasonic had a brain fart. There are no straight sata power connectors, not even the one on the end of the 4x cable. Cases today have dedicated SSD slots which require straight sata power connecters. Their previous 460w gold fanless had one, but not this one. I'm baffled. That easily deserves -1 star.READ FULL REVIEW
