Energy RC-Micro 5.1

 

Energy is big on small speakers, and it always has been. That's what we were thinking as we set up the RC-Micro 5.1 ($1,000)--it took us back to when we reviewed the original Energy Take 5 satellite/subwoofer system in 1997. That model took us by...

Beautifully finished, piano black 5.1 channel home theater speaker package with five incredibly tiny, two-way satellites matched with an outstanding 8-inch, 240-watt powered subwoofer; excellent sound quality, especially considering the small size.

The speakers' spring connectors accept only the skinniest bare-wire ends or pins; may strain at very high volumes.

The Energy Speakers RC-Micro 5.1 speaker system delivers superb sound quality from incredibly tiny speakers.

"Great Set Love it"

 

I ordered this set after a fair amount of research. They wound up on top for the price range and overall customer satisfaction. They have a very high quality finish. They have amazing clarity, and the sub woofer is a great performer for only being 60w...

Build quality is outstanding clarity is superb and the sub is clean and deep

Small speakers. They look nice but one of the qualities of small speakers is a lack of mid range. Though the speakers lack mid range the great sub definitely will pick it up.

"Small but effective."

 

After reading about this system on CNET and considering the Mirage Nanosat, Mirage MX-1 and Energy Take Classic 5.1, I chose this system. Since it is in the Klipsch family and I have the Klipsch HD Theater 500, which I absolutely love, I purchased this...

Clear sounds; voices are life-like; crisp highs; subwoofer made just for this system and delivers deep bass you have to hear to believe.

Sometimes bass overwhelms system but that is mostly because of different sound levels from cable provider.

"Phenomenal sound. Beautiful finish. High WAF rating."

 

I had Polk Audio RTi8s w/ CS10. They looked ... 

Well-balanced sound stage from tiny form factor. Elegant, Piano-black, glossy finish. No shame in this 8" subwoofer. Pairs well with existing receiver (Onkyo, in my case). Chose over Bose. High-end sound at entry-level price

Energy doesn't sell Micro speakers separately (e.g. 6.1, 7.1 or bookshelf). Subwoofer doesn't shake the house

I had Polk Audio RTi8s w/ CS10. They looked cool and shattered windows, but required high volume to achieve optimal performance. I was skeptical that great sound can be had without large speakers, refused to pay Bose prices and wanted to preserve...
