"Frankly, I never thought I'd be this enthusiastic about a mainstream Klipsch speaker system. Overall, Klipsch's system pulled off a performance that left my jaw on the floor more than a few times."
"While the Reference Premiere system genuinely blew me away, it has some very stiff competition coming up in there view queue. Because of advances in computer simulation and modeling as well as materials, today's speakers truly are better than ever. For Klipsch,incorporating those improvements puts it in the elite ranks of companies that make speakers capable of playing at reference levels without causing listener fatigue. This system can do precisely that, and a whole lot more, which is why it earns my highest recommendation.”
