What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Klipsch The Sixes Powered Monitor – Walnut Veneer (Pair)
  • Everything about these speakers surpassed my expectations. Easy to set up, beautiful color, clearly very well made.
  • No more clutter from multiple speakers and receiver, multiple inputs, Bluetooth, quality craftsmanship and sound that makes your ears happy.
  • This sort of design touch improves the overall experience of owning them and feeling you are dealing with a product in which attention to such detail adds to the overall value in my opinion. I'm also happy with the size.
  • The speaker size, not too big or small... they have that "just right" look to them. Most importantly... I love the the SOUND factor... powerful, yet totally crisp clear & clean.
  • Sorry for the detailed passion for Klipsch products. Buy The Sixes, you’ll be pleased with the sound, but watch the remote control did not work

What customers say about "Audio"
Klipsch The Sixes Powered Monitor – Walnut Veneer (Pair)
  • Typical awesome sound I’ve grown to appreciate from Klipsch.
  • These are terrific speakers. I've owned lots of 2 channel systems from traditional audiophile marques (Dynaudio, Usher Beryllium, Devialet) and this is a very good alternative for someone looking to just enjoy the music and/or TV.
  • Highs and mids are clear and airy - no need to fear characteristically harsh horn tweeter sounds. Bass is exceptional and even coming from a Devialet Phantom setup I do not need a sub.
  • Setup/installation is dead simple and the sound only gets better with break-in.
  • Rich bass, crisp highs, clean mids. It's truly superb sound. You'll get incredible volume without sacrificing sound integrity, though the bass hits much harder at high volumes than I was prepared for.
  • So far there is nothing for me not to like about The Sixes, except maybe the fact that you can hear the impurities from low quality media and sources.
Audioengine HD6 Wireless Bookshelf Speakers
  • It seems to produce the bass (or low freq) sounds better than high frequency sounds. But, the sound is clear and a pleasure to listen to
  • These are fantastic sounding speakers. Much more refined and lifelike than I expected. They also throw a wide and deep sound stage.
  • They sound fantastic in near field listening and are still quite good in a in a more standard set-up - they do however have a small "sweet spot" both left/right and up/down
  • I honestly don't like these speakers. They sound very muffled and muddy in comparison to my other speakers.
  • These are great for bass heads. The other range of sounds seem kind of muddy to me. Compared to something like the Kef x300a
  • They sound great for vocals, but not so great for electronic music, in my opinion

What customers say about "Features"
Klipsch The Sixes Powered Monitor – Walnut Veneer (Pair)
  • OMG!! Pricey for the system but you get what you pay for.
  • I hear other companies also make speakers, but you won’t find them in my house! I’ve been sold on Klipsch since my pair of Klipsch Lascala speakers purchased in 1985 - 32 years later they are still in use in my media room.
  • I love every single thing about these speakers, best I've ever purchased without question.
  • These speakers should be at the top of anyone's list that is looking for amazing sound at very reasonable price.These speakers sound great at low and high volumes and can get very loud without distortion.
  • I do love the bluetooth function. I also have a turntable plugged into these as well. They are just what I was looking for. A little pricey but worth it.
  • The remote does not have a very wide field and you pretty much have to point directly at the speaker for it to work.
Audioengine HD6 Wireless Bookshelf Speakers
  • The speakers have a 3.5mm audio cable jack, optical jack, and component audio in and out.
  • They also have Bluetooth input with AptX encoding capability for “HD like” bluetooth streaming. I have the speakers connected optically to my Vizio 4K TV
  • From time to time I will play music from my phone or macbook with bluetooth and the speakers will automatically “switch” to from the optical input to the bluetooth input. This is automatic and cannot be changed
  • Its a solid block of aluminum from with the insides are carved out and the electronics for the remote are inserted inside. The bottom half of the remote is completely solid while the upper half of the remote is where the electronics reside
  • The grills are removable and attach to the cabinets with hidden magnets.
  • My Bluetooth is getting hijacked by my neighbors, I can hear the movie they are playing through my speakers, and I cannot stop it. It is far too easy to connect to these speakers, there needs to be more security.
