Well, paying top dollar for expensive equipment doesn't guarantee that you'll get every dollar spent in acoustical performance.  I've had many debates with others about this and have held my tongue on numerous occasions when someone posts pictures of some speakers they've spent $20,000 a pair for; to end up flushing that investment down the toilet when they shove those speakers into a corner sandwiched by a bulky home entertainment system.  That to me is a bigger travesty than someone who just buys a home theater in a box system.

Wow..........so no JBL and no Polk audio then. I don't want a true surround system that's why I asked which one would be better. I was hoping some people that were knowledgeable about these things could help me choose.

Don,

It's with some of the responders to this thread criticizing him for his choice. I


The TS came to this site for some advice or opinions. I gave mine, I was never trying to criticize the TS for his choice. That is why I stayed out of this thread since I don't have any sound bar "experience"

Hey if my sig started a war I apologize.

I was really trying to point out that there are some reasons where such devices do fill the bill to where even I had to lower my standards for a particular instance. I am most persnickity about my AV equipment.

Anyhow no disrepect intended.

ron I gotta say it looks like you spend most of your time reading other people's reviews and buying based on other people's opinions rather than picking a few models based on reviews and opinions and going to evaluate them yourselves.  Seems like an easy way to buy something that may not suit your individual tastes.  The research part you do is great, but I would never buy any tv "sight unseen" or audio equipment "sound unheard", thats just asking for trouble.

To add to what you said, I would say sound is even mor difficult than picture, because so many people hear different frequencies and speakers have such different pitches to them.

It is very possible that the TS was having trouble like I was. For the last couple of days sometimes I could not even open the forum web site. Also, when I was on the web site at time and I clicked the back button it would do nothing ( Using IE 10 ), When I clicked the down arrow next to the Back / Forward buttons the window that opens was full of things with google-analytics in it.

I went into Internet options , Security Privacy and added www.google-analytics.com to the list with a Block. I also deleted all temporary files that had that name in them. So far I have not had any more problems.

Same here. For the past few days I've experienced the same using both Internet Explorer 10 and Google Chrome.

I've had and thoroughly enjoyed my NHT SuperZero's for over 15 years now. Still reasonably priced at $99 (whole system for around $850) People who visit us are also very impressed with their performance for their size.

Just sayin......

My son set his system up with the NHT Super Zero and the Super One and a 12" Velodyne 2000 watt subwoofer.

It is awesome. He spend a lot for the speakers and the sub and is diving them with a Yamaha AV.
