I have a pair of Energy C-3 bookshelf speakers that I need to sell. These were bought in 2007 and have been used very little. I am moving and I need to do in-wall speakers in my new setup. IMHO, these are some of the best bang-for-your-buck speakers available. I also have the C-C1 center channel to match if you are interested.
Here's what Doug Schneider had to say in his Soundstage review of the C-3's.
"If you?ve been itching to get one of those over-$1000, hot-shot monitor-sized speakers like the Amphion argon2 or Revel Performa M20 but don?t have the money, the Energy C-3 is the speaker for you. No, you won?t get a wood-veneered cabinet, but you will get a speaker that's rather unique-looking and offers knockout sound. I doubt that among those who value sonic refinement and neutrality you will find much disagreement. This is an amazingly complete monitor that compares very favorably to the more upscale products I use as references. The Energy Connoisseur C-3 is a textbook example of a high-value speaker -- and a Reviewers' Choice".
