Energy Veritas V-6.3 Speakers (5.1 System)

ARTICLE INDEX

Introduction to the Energy Veritas V-6.3 Speakers

Energy speakers have been around since 1973. They came into prominence with the Pro 22 and later with the Veritas v2.8 speakers which were a big hit in the mid 90's. At an MSRP of around $6,000, the Veritas v2.8's were known for an excellent price/performance ratio.

In recent years, Energy has become a market leader with their compact 5.1-channel satellite/sub systems. Their latest offering in this arena is the Take Classic 5.1 Home Theater System which scores very highly with the press and consumers alike.
