Review: N H T Super One Monitor
I have had these superones close to when they were first introduced, probably 1996-97 period. I first used them exclusively as a part of a 2-channel, music only set-up and have since incorporated them into a small Home Theater setup as the main LR speakers.
If you like the monitor classification of speakers, then these Superones will not disappoint for the price. I personally am attracted by speakers that have great clarity in the tweeters, without being thin or tinny, and without being sounding unnatural (i.e., an over-equalized tone). The Superones sound extremely natural to me and I think, depending on bass management component-wise, have enough bass for me (perhaps not for everyone). However, in my small HT setup, they obviously require a subwoofer to complete the sonic picture.
After living with these speakers for so long, I believe that they are actually prefect for a second setup, in the bedroom or some comparable smaller room with a smaller system. They are small enough, and with their black gloss finish, can actually look very nice in rooms which are not solely used for A/V purposes.
I realize that NHT has gone through some changes, including being bought by Recoton, and obviously coming out with newer series of different speakers since '96-'97. However, these speakers seem to be still carried by various on-line dealers, as well as being on this ite, eBay and other such auction sites - so finding them will not be too difficult, at least for the time being. Additionally, they are (especially now) bargains, if not outright cheap!
