Last month I was fortunate to be the one of the winners of NHT’s monthly contest to for a pair of Super Zero 2.1 speakers. I bought a third Super Zero so I could use the speakers as the front and center channel speakers of my home theatre system which is in my family room. My home theatre system is a Denon “Home Theatre in a box” system that came with a receiver, six speakers, and a subwoofer. The Super Zero speakers provided an immediate, significant improvement in sound. TV sounded better, Blue Rays and DVD’s sounded better, and CD’s sounded great. I never really listened to much music with my home theatre system, because I listen to music in my living room on a recently upgraded two channel stereo system which sounded much better. Owning NHT speakers has changed that, because music sounds terrific when I am listening to DVD’s, CD, or cable broadcasts through the NHT speakers. I have hooked the NHT Super Zero speakers to the 100 watt per channel Yamaha R-S700 receiver in my living room to compare them to my newly purchased (and much more costly) three way tower speakers. I have an NHT B10-D subwoofer connected to this system, so the Super Zero’s had good bass to complement their sound. The Yamaha receiver really lit up the sound of the Super Zero’s and they sounded great. I can’t say that the Super Zero’s sound better than my tower speakers but they sound amazing considering how little they cost. After living with the Super Zero’s for several weeks, I am extremely pleased with them. They are very suited to a small to medium sized room. I am getting excellent sound using an inexpensive receiver and an average subwoofer. The high range is tight and accurate and the mid-range sounds, especially when playing music, has excellent punch to it. When NHT comes out with their new Super in wall speakers, I’ll upgrade the rest of the speakers in my home theatre system. Thanks NHT.
