    There are a lot of people asking about entry level systems and I haven't heard much about the AR HC6 package. It looks to be around the price range of Energy Take 5.2, JBL NSP1, Home Theater Direct level 2, Paradigm and PSB entry packages, and several others I can't remember off the top of my head.

    I hate to see newbies plunking down their $$ on HTIB and/or Bose when they could be buying a decent $200-300 receiver and a decent $400-700 speaker package.

    So any opinions on the AR package, or any similar set-up?

    NSP-1 does not include a sub.

    Ah ha! So what is a good street price of the NSP1 and a good price for say a JBL 10" sub?

    NSP-1 + PB10 or Sony SA-WM40 = ~$350-400, but you will end up with a better sub than any of the other sets in either case, IMO.

    Ok, back to the AR HC6. Does anybody have them or at least heard them?

    There was a reveiew of the HC6 a few months back in Home Theater mag. It said the bookshelf speakers were great, but the sub was not really that good.
