Hi there from Italy, I have a couple of RF82II, 33Hz-24KHz 98dB and I bet they sound pretty similar to RP8000fII. I was used to have a wonderful Heco The Statement speakers and "downgraded" to these Klipsch but even if I lost something in the bass area I found great presence, clarity and a very bold sound with Klipsch. But I have to say that most of us don't consider our ears as a part of the hardware, with all their pros and cons. Give your sound the right equalization and these Klipsch will surprise you avery time you listen to them. I play my music through pc, on a versatile Pioneer SC-LX87, connected to the built in usb Pioneer DAC, apply the Fletcher Munson curve of equal loudness to fit human ears limits through Equalizer Apo and the Voxengo Marvel GEQ plugin, a quantum leap is inevitable.
