A CNET Editor’s Choice winner for February 2009, the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Entertainment Speaker System ($399) is a no-compromise collection of high-tech components that offer complete and uncompromising fidelity at an affordable price. Made up of four Take satellite speakers, a Take center channel speaker and one 200-watt Take powered subwoofer, each high-gloss black speaker component in this system is masterfully integrated with each other creating a killer sound that is much bigger than it looks and that seamlessly meshes with any flat panel HDTV system. Take Classic proves that convenience doesn’t have to mean compromise. Sure, you can shop for individual home theater components-but you won’t get better performance, or better looks. Integrating the best technologies Energy has to offer, the Take Classic can fill your room with hair-rising effects and theater-like sound: hyperbolic aluminum dome tweeters for screaming highs, Convergent Source Modules for clear, crisp dialogue and music and a Ribbed Elliptical Surround on the subwoofer that makes every explosion a room shaking affair. In addition, integrated keyhole wall-mounts, threaded inserts and rubber bumpers let you choose how and where to place your speakers.
