The Klipsch RF-62 is a bit of a mixed
bag. It certainly is not for the refined, audiophile crowd. It provides
a big sound with great dynamics that really delivers the goods on rock
and electronic music. On the other hand, it lacks overall speed and
transparency and rarely gets out of the way. Its flaws don't blend into
the whole in every case, but those cases will only register with those
with audiophile expectations. For a lot less than a grand, for somebody
with a large room and a lot of hard rock, rap, and metal material in
their catalog, it would likely work. For those with different
requirements, other options exist that might fit better.
