Anyone here upgrade from RF-62 II's or 82's to the RF-7 II's? What are your thoughts on the difference in sound?
I presume that you are unable to audition the RF-7II's ??

It's difficult to describe sound with words that have common meaning so take this for what it is.
The RF-7 just sounds better than the RF-82 in every describable parameter..
The lows sound lower and have more weight or tactile feel.
The mids are smoother and the voices just sound more real, very revealing but no harshness.
The highs are airy and clean sounding without being over bearing.
The overall soundstage sounds wide and deep.
No matter how busy the music is each instrument and voice can be picked out as being unique instead of being lost in the din.

A lot of this can also be said about the RF-82 compared to the RF-62, but the RF-7 takes it up another level that is easily heard.
Considering the price difference between the RF-82 & the RF-7 there should be a big difference in the sound, IMO the RF-7 is worth it, but that is something each has to decide on their own.

I've pretty much decided on the RF-7 II's, barring Klipsch announces something that may best them this year. I have the RF-62 II's now and have enjoyed them, but they are simply too small to effectively fill my room in my new house. Plus, after upgrading to the SVS Ultra, my system is begging for a speaker upgrade, lol.

If you have room to use the RF-62's as surrounds that would be awesome and the RS-52's cold be used as rears or front heights.

I wish I could, but everything is in my living room, which is open to the kitchen. My wife would never approve, lol. I plan to have the attic space converted to a dedicated theater room at some point, but that could be years down the road.

Lol, they are nice speakers for sure, but I could almost complete my attic HT conversion for the price.
