I went to Axpona, in fact I saw a person wearing a Home Theater Shack t-shirt with a giant camera and a note pad there.
That was either Dennis or Wayne! I was there Saturday and Sunday, sans HTS T-shirt.

Best Real World Gear: HSU Research


On to the Best Real World Gear award, with “Real World” meaning gear that’s not only highly affordable but a legit performer. Without question, this award goes to the incredibly gracious folks at HSU Research.

Traveling all the way from their lab in California, it was great to see a pioneer of ID subwoofer manufacturing strutting its stuff. HSU’s room had three subs (ULS15, VTF-15H, and VTF-3 MK5 HP), HB-1 MK2 mains and surrounds, and an HC-1 MK2 center channel. The HB-1s sell for $159 each and the HC-1 goes for $249. The two subs Dr. Hsu used during the demos (the VTF-3 MK5 HP and VTF-15H) are $799 and $899 respectively. That means a complete 5.1 system rolls-in well under $2,000.
Absolutely agreed here Todd, I have an email into Dr. Hsu as I type and hope some are still available.


Good Listening

His speakers are amazing and the price is REALLY good. HTS's Jim Wilson will have a review on the new VTF3 soon...I thought the sub sounded great and it really did well under the stress tests that Dr. Hsu put it through.

Let us know if you buy some speakers and, of course, you are obligated to tell us how they sound in your home!

Will do Todd. I will be buying a minimum of the subwoofer and if I can sell sell my velodyne sub, then I will do a 5.1 Hsu system.

You know, they do have the older VTF15 on sale...but it sounds like the new version has more power, better driver, etc.

I'll be curious to see what you end up with!

Re: The "Best Of" AXPONA 2015

I will be placing an order for at least the VTF-3 MK5 HP and again if I can sell the sub, I will spend that extra money on the other speakers. I really liked his speakers in Rosenut, they are very beautiful.

That's not grey hair, by the way. Must be the flash!
Next time we need to hit a room or two together!
