    Default Energy Take Classic or build up over time


    This is for a relatively small apartment living room. Priorities in order are music, followed by movies, with a little TV thrown in. I've read good things about the take classic for the price, but I don't really want to go to all the trouble and expense of installation unless it's a real winner. My other thought is to just get a pair of large bookshelf or small floor speakers with enough range to get by for a while. I'm not convinced that my one movie a week habit even justifies a whole 5.1 arrangement.

    Thoughts?

    Well, i do not know anything about the particular speakers you mention, and am not an audiophile, but from what i have researched if music is your main concern you are probably better off with two channel (not 5.1), and analog connections.
    Current TV: Panasonic TCP65VT50
    Current Receiver: Yamaha Aventage RX-3000
    Current Speakers : L/C/R = Goldenear SuperSat 50, Surrounds = GoldenEar Supersat 3s,Sub 1 = REL R-305, Sub 2= GoldenEar Forcefield 3
    Blue Ray Players: PS3 (fat and slim), Oppo BDP-93
    MISC: Panamax M5300 Ex Power conditioner, Xbox 360 (fat and slim), BDI Avion Series II 8927 Espresso Oak

    The energys are great speakers for what you get, but, i dont think the deal on the takes are all that great anymore, they used to have a 5.0 system that was around or under $200 and that was a great deal. if you are a large music fan, imho i think your best bet would to put as much money as you can into a good 2.0 setup and then add on later when you feel that you want the whole surround sound experience. this goes especially since you live in an small apt, and with a decent 2.0 setup, they will give you a good amount of the low end you will want.
