musiclover22 Posted April 6, 2018 Report Share Posted April 6, 2018 After years of using British loudspeakers, I have recently become interested again in classic loudspeakers of the U.S. "east coast" variety. I recently bought an NHT Super One 2.1 to use as a "second" loudspeaker. It just blew me away. Despite its small size and apparently limited bass output, its acoustic suspension woofer just smokes my ported B and Ws in the bass. NHT may well be the only existing speaker company left in the AR and New England tradition. Despite its California location, NHT was founded by a former AR engineer, Ken Kantor. I believe all of their speakers use acoustic suspension. My Super One has a very flat frequency response and is very accurate, which are AR hallmarks. Their C3 looks a lot to me like a modern day AR 2ax (or maybe 3a). I know the primary interest in this forum is classic loudspeakers and NHT (founded in the 1980s) is probably too new to qualify. However, I am just wondering how many people out there know about and support perhaps the only current speaker company that is keeping the AR tradition alive.
