Home Theater Direct (HTD) Level TWO System Review Discussion Thread

Home Theater Direct Level TWO System

By Jim Wilson (theJman)


Inexpensive often equates to cheap, but not in this case. The Home Theater Direct Level TWO System revealed its modest pedigree in one or two areas, but those proved to be the exception and not the rule; for the most part these speakers and subwoofers fought above their weight class (so to speak). This system proved very easy to live with on a day-to-day basis. A common saying is "champagne tastes with a beer wallet", which is a person who likes finer things but simply can't afford them. HTD has you folks covered; you won't need to spend a lot to get a lot from them. Thoughtful touches and very good sound quality make it such that Home Theater Direct should be on the 'short list' of anyone looking for a high value system.

Thanks for the review, Jman! Just the other day, I was just recommending Home Theater Direct over Bose to a friend of mine.

The tweeter used in the Level 2 looks a lot like the driver used in several really nice sounding speakers, one of which I own and enjoy the highs of very much.

Awesome write-up Jim. I have always been intrigued by the Level TWO system. I'm currently building a pair of speakers but may have to put the build on hold due to some circumstances so these look to be a great value. Plus their good looks are appealing to my wife

Great review, Jim. Sounds like the Level 2's give a lot of bang for the buck.

Jeffrey;

Thank you. I put a tremendous effort into maintaining my candor, which isn't always easy given the circumstances. Thankfully HTS affords me sufficient latitude, something that has proven very beneficial; they have never once redacted any of my reviews, not something all that common in an advertising-based industry such as this.

Nice review Jim.

I'm curious how they stack up to the Andrew Jones designed Pioneer towers and bookshelfs which are also priced along the same lines? Its good to know that you can some decent quality at such a low starting point. This makes entry into the Home Theater, a viable option for more families.
