Yes, that is what I had read about them. I'm enjoying them. The delivery guy said that it was the 6th pair he had on his truck that day. Must be a good deal somewhere. I got mine through Amazon. I know Klipsch had a promotion going on where they were giving away a 12" sub with the purchase of 2 RP-280F speakers. It was only for the black color when I last checked. I don't need a subwoofer in the office where I use these new speakers. Plenty of air moving in the low frequency range. Edit: I forget about the new amp as the speakers look gorgeous and are more prominent. The amp cost nearly are much as the speakers combined. When I pause my music, I can crank up the volume quite a bit and still not hear a hum or any noise at all.
