I know there is a loyal following on this forum for NHT speakers so I thought I would start a new thread specifically about the legendary NHT 3.3 speakers. I've been a proud owner of 5 VS-2 for years. Adding to that my beasty Velodyne ULD-18 sub and I've had terrific 5.1 and 2 channel sound. I've been wanting to own the 3.3's but they were really too expensive....until recently. My brother recently acquired a pair and was needing to sell them for personal reasons. Now I own these monsters. I also got the Evolution M6 for the center speaker. NHT made the Audio Center 2 to match these but I talked to a NHT rep and since the Audio Center 2 was really rare and couldn't find a mint one, he suggested the M6. I think it uses the same tweeter. I know this is bragging, but I've never heard such detail and such a big soundstage from a 5.1 system. I've got these set on "Large" and subwoofer to "Yes" and watching FOTR-EE last night I feared for the integrity of my home! Loud? Yes, but clean and effortless. I've watched this movie a zillion times but I swear I heard some things I missed. The 3.3's do require the right room and adequate amplification. Later on, I will get a more powerful 2 channel amp for these, but for now my THX-Ultra reciever is surprisingly feeding these ok. Just thought I would share my thoughts on these beautiful looking and sounding speakers.
