Now Hear This

Anyone here have any experience with this brand of loudspeakers?

Re: Now Hear This

I haven't so really shouldn't be responding to your post, though I have heard of them. I think it is a rather catchy name for a loudspeaker maker.

Yes, it is a rather catchy name! :)

Although I'm accustomed to getting lots of access to products such as loudspeakers before I buy them, I decided to take a chance a year ago, and buy a pair of NHT Classic 3 speakers from their website. I'm pretty happy with them.

I've always preferred 3-way speakers. While there used to be a fair number of 3-way speakers on sale back when I started buying them in the 1970s, they're pretty scarce these days. Likewise, acoustic suspension speakers are extremely rare today. It's like people expect to see bass ports on a speaker, and think there's something missing if they aren't ported. That's a real shame, since my NHT speakers have dramatically less distortion than my large ported speaker system.

Oh, BTW, thanks for your response! :D

Re: Now Hear This

My pleasure, I'm glad you are enjoying your speakers.

What do you mainly listen too musically speaking?

Re: Now Hear This

Right now I'm listening to the new Pink Floyd album. I guess you can say that I mainly listen to music featuring David Gilmour. :D

I forgot to mention that I'm using these speakers primarily for sound for video, so I don't often play just music on them. If I want to do serious music listening, I still use my big full-range speakers for that. But since the low bass tends to wake people up, I use the little bookshelf speakers when I'm watching TV at night. All the booms and crashes that have become obligatory in every TV show today are made far less annoying by the Classic 3's 7" woofer.

My copy of "The Endless River" came on Blu-ray as 96kHz/24-bit LPCM, which I'm listening to on my Blu-ray player. I'll need to figure out how to rip the Blu-ray to FLAC so I can play from a computer as I usually do. Do you know of any good Blu-ray music ripping tools?

Re: Now Hear This

Can't say I do I'm still using good old dvds for my viewing pleasure.
I'm a fan of pink floyd, them queen, and the who are my favorite 70's rock bands. These days I listen to a lot of nu folk and a little blues and a little bit of a lot of other stuff as well.



Real love takes thought.

I've been using DIY versions of the NHT SW3 subs for over 15 years now.
