I've narrowed it down finally to the HTD Level 4 towers, center, and bookshelf rears, the HTD Level 3 towers, center, and bookshelf rears, and Ascend Acoustics 340 mains, 340 center, and 170 rears. I've searched all the forums to death, and just can't decide. One thing to be considered is the fact that I could get the HSU VTF3-Mk2 with the Ascend package with free shipping on everything. If I went with HTD Level 4, budget constraints would limit the subwoofer choices, but I could get the Level 3 package and an SVS PB2-ISD for about the same price as the Ascend/HSU combo. I'd like to get some feedback on these speakers from any owners, or especially anyone who's compared the 3 choices. Will the HTD Level 3's hang with the Ascends? If so, I'm leaning toward that. If not, I'm leaning toward the Ascends. Do the Level 4's give a substantial amount of improvement over the Level 3's, or is the piano gloss cabinets where most of the extra money goes? So many questions.....I could probably just flip a coin and be happy, but to me, half the fun is doing the research. I know people will say to get a pair of each and decide, and it may come down to that, but any feedback I could get before that time would be appreciated. Thanks.
