I agree with LTW, the synergy line (F1, Quintets) does sound "bright" with Onkyo and Yamaha receivers. I would pair these speakers with H/K, Denon, Elite, or Marantz receivers, if i went that route. The smaller Energy Takes won't sound as warm as the other lines of Energy (C-series, RC series,etc.) but warmer than the Klipschs. It really just depends on what you like, as mentioned previously, sound is subjective. Me personally, have grown tired of my Klipsch SL's...they are too bright for my liking and they are paired with an HK receiver too. I don't see the F1 or even the F3s for that matter, being a speaker I would want to listen to everyday.

For the price of the Energy Takes...what do you have to lose? You could always use them for a smaller bedroom setup if you decide you want to start building a serious setup for your main listening area, later on down the road.

Are the C series much better? Because I could get C-50s for just a bit more than the Take 5 series.

The C-50 would definately be a step up from the Takes. Energy offers some great sounding speakers at a reasonable price in general. Check out the price on this tower....http://www.audioadvisor.com/prodinfo.asp?number=ENC300

These are the towers I should have got instead of the SL's. Match the C-300s with the a decent center channel and you got a great front soundstage.

It's always a good idea to take your time when hunting for speakers. I have changed my mind so much...not to mention my budget, that I've gone nearly insane. I've managed to narrow it down between the Energy RC-50s and the MA RS-6 or RX-6s. Too bad it'll have to wait til after the new year as I just scooped up a Pioneer 500M and an Elite SC-25. I figure a nice receiver was in order before the speakers..this way i'll have plenty of time to audition and make up my dayum mind. lol

Then you really should audition some Paradigm speakers. Once you hear them you will know why I say this.
