This review is from: Klipsch Synergy F-20 Premium Dual 6.5" Floor-standing Speaker Single
Pros: New Egg's service is excellent. Bought a couple items from them and received all within a couple of days.
As far as the speakers; They arrived within 3 days of order and no damage at all to them. Klipsch speakers have a different sound to them and its something you sort of have an ear for or not. It's what I call a deeper sound. Which, at times, may sound a bit muffled or muddy. I have the Klipsch Quintets for center and surround with the F-20s for the left and right. And, the Klipsch 350 sub with it the system (excellent). Powered with a Yamaha Aventage RX 820.
Been breaking them in at a low to moderate level for about 20 plus hours now. I have literally gone back and forth switching the Deftech pro monitor 350's that I have with another system and I have to say that they are much clearer than the F20's.
* Very affordable speaker.
* Seem better for movies than for music.
* Good looking tower with and without the grill.
Cons: * Not as clear with music as I expected for a tower speaker.
Other Thoughts: Everyone's listening is different. What I like to try and find, especially in music, is that everything is pretty balanced with vocals and instruments. In other words, you can hear the vocals just as well as the drums and vice versa. One comparison I made between my deftech 350's and the F20s were with piano and the symbols in certain songs.
Listened to; The best of Molly Hatchet; Flirtin with Disaster, Dreams I'll Never Know, etc. Basically the whole CD has some excellent symbol work. On the deftechs, it was like the symbols were right in front of me. The F20's, they just weren't as defined.
Also listened to Lionel Richie with lots of Piano play. It was basically the same scenario. The Piano sounded right in front of me with the Deftechs, and not so much with the Klipsch's. The Deftechs 350 bookshelf's are probably a grade or two above the F20's with the clarity the whole way through. This is kind of surprising to me that a bookshelf could be that good.
For the size and the reputation I expected the F20's towers to outperform, or at least equal my bookshelf Deftechs.
This review is from: Klipsch SW-350 Subwoofer Single
Pros: Very good sub. Blends very well with any speaker or system. I have def tech 350 monitors with other def techs completing the system, and Klipsch F20's with Quintets on the other system. . Both systems powered by Yamaha Aventage, one a RX 820 , the other is the RX 2020. I tried this sub with both systems. This sub is excellent and has just the right punch and base. I have a giant Polk PSW 505 (12") that I got from New egg which is also an excellent sub. The Polk is a bit too big and you need to make room for it. The Klipsch is a little smaller and not as much as an eye soar.
Excellent sub for the price and don't let the smaller size (8") fool you. It performs just as well as the big boys. I would of got two of these knowing what I know now. This sub easily performs just as well with the bigger Polk I have.
Cons: The power cord is a bit small, but it doesn't effect the performance at all. May be a con or not to some people. There is a blue light in front of the sub that lets you know if its on or off. I look at it as a Pro. It lets you know when the sub is off or idle and you will know what is going on with it. To some, this might be an eye soar.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is an excellent sub. I had little to no adjustment for it. Great for movies and music. I listen to classic rock, blues, soft rock, etc and its excellent for all of them.READ FULL REVIEW
