    I have an opportunity to purchase an HSU VTF-2 used for $375 or maybe less. The sub is about 18 months old. I was wondering if there have been any changes to the sub over this time period.

    I assume the warranty is still in effect but was wondering if there have been recent upgrades that would make the purchase of a new sub wiser.

    It will be used with a Pioneer Elite VSX-45tx receiver.

    Thanks.

    Tom,

    Exactly what I was going to write. I looked on the Hsu site today and saw the B-stock deal at $399.

    I emailed Hsu because I wasn't sure if the regular A-stock price is $499 or if that was a further reduction on the B-stock, given they are out of stock on the A-stock. That's a whole lotta stocks isn't it?

    Do you know what the list price for an A-stock VFT-2 is?

    Yeah, I saw the b-stock deal, but you don't know how bad the cosmetic defect will be and it is a no return policy. Plus, I am hopeful I can get the price down, and I can pick up locally.

    I think it is too late anyways...they are out of the b-stock now.

    Try calling them.

    Sasha from Hsu wrote me that they will probably put the A-stock VFT-2's on sale today for $449! Unfortunately, they are backed up till mid August on delivery, which begs the question, why put them on sale when they are BO'd?

    Still, good news, it seems like a very good deal which includes shipping.

    Does anyone know where the Hsu subs are made (country of origin)?

    The VTF series of subs are assembled in the US. Some parts are from the US, some from China I think.

    The new STF series will be assembled in China.

    $375 is a decent price, but I would try to get it down. I picked one up 2 weeks ago for $325 in perfect condition: I would describe it 9/10 per Audiogon.
