Guess I'll have to change my future plans as far as new speakers are concerned. Here's the press release from NHT a.k.a. Now Hear This: Looks like their website is still up for the time being: nhthifi.com They were one of three companies I had planned on buying from for my next HT system. Their Classic 3 bookshelf made it onto the cover of The Absolute Sound last year, quite an accomplishment for a speaker at that price point. NHT has been one of those fun/quirky manufacturers since 1986 but at the same time always tried to give the customer quality & innovative gear for not much money, a very rare combination these days (a couple years ago the front page of their site featured a guy yodeling for about ten seconds on a mountain top before opening the rest of the page ). I am afraid we will be seeing more and more respected audio manufacturers slipping away from us in the coming years. Audio companies have been dropping like flies before this economic meltdown started, so no telling what's in store for us now.
