Energy CF-70 Speakers

Introduction

I first encountered the Energy line of speakers in the late 90's when I helped a friend setup her new Take 5 system paired with a Denon receiver. My recollection of the event is of some skepticism as to the sound quality given the small size of the speakers but I ended up being grudgingly impressed with them. They certainly blew away any HTiB solution! It was perfect for her condo.

Energy is another one of the Canadian speaker companies that has participated in and benefited from the research work done with the Canadian National Research Council and their psycho-acoustical studies. Energy was acquired by Klipsch in 2006 and since then the Klipsch group as a whole seems to moving strongly into large national retailers here in Canada and the new Connoisseur series was designed with that market in mind.

Released in the fall of last year the new Connoisseur series consists of 9 different speakers and is designed for the home theater and national retail market. The CF-70 is the largest of the floor standing speakers in this series and the most recent to come to market.
