I got it on Friday. Set it up with some bookshelf speakers, and the sound quality is amazing. I am waiting until tomorrow for my 5.0 BIC speaker system to arrive and I am looking forward to hearing everything all set up. The VTF-3 is certainly the crown jewel of my new system.

Well now that I have had the whole 5.1 system set up for two days, man do I love this VTF-3 MK5 HP subwoofer! I have never in my life owned such a fine piece of audio equipment, and it's like night and day to what I was used to. An audio experience epiphany!

My wife and I love to listen to Jazz, but with this sub, I am actually listening as if I am in the same room with the bass player! The tonal quality combined with the fact that the sound is not just heard, but also felt is simply amazing.

Oh and movies, where do I begin? Maybe with how the Disney opening scene with fireworks shooting off over Cinderella's castle now sound like authentic fire works and not just a gratuitous, unrecognizable pop. Or maybe it's with the experience I had watching Star Wars (new hope) last night, where the scenes with Vader carries this low, almost inaudible, rumbling which intensifies with his level of viciousness. Have I ever experienced that when I watched this movie before? Maybe when I saw the re-release in the theaters back in the 90's. Certainly not in home viewing.

Anyway I can't say enough about what this Sub has done for my music and movie listening experience.

Specifically, I would like to thank you ShadyJ for your advice on what to get. I couldn't be happier with this subwoofer!

Not sure but I'd go ahead and spend the extra $150 for the Rosenut if I really wanted one. Looks a little better and you get it asap.

For anyone who might be interested... I just published a review on the VTF-3 MK5 HP. I came away quite impressive with what I heard.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

Good write up Jim. I agree, Hsu makes great subs. My vtf3 mk3 was my first "real" sub and has been a stellar performer since the day I got it while remaining problem free. I thought about getting a second last year, but was persuaded to try the DIY approach with a sealed dual opposed SI 18 project (dubbed the Rockbiter due to the granite top) which turned out better than expected. While it extends lower than the Hsu, the vtf keeps up remarkably well in its frequency range.
My old man was so impressed with the Hsu that he bought one in a 5.1 pkg. I liked the HB-1 speakers so much that I bought a pair for mains. They've since been moved to wides duty, but they're great speakers, especially at their price.

Have you heard the HB-1s? Would love to read your review on them.

I have not unfortunately, although I must admit to having been curious about them in the past. The current rendition (MK2) has been out for a while though, haven't they? If so I'm not sure Dr. Hsu would be interested in getting them evaluated. Now if they release a MK3 then that's another story...

I have the Hsu HB-1 Mk2's and think they are excellent speakers, regardless of price - but the relatively low price is an added bonus. There are several reviews on Hsu's product page; I'd say the ones from Gene Pitts and Andrew Robinson most match my opinion.

That said, I recently purchased the Ascend Sierra 2's which are to my ears the better speakers but then they cost almost 5x as much as the Hsu's. Also a shameless plug that I am now selling my HB-1's, but I still wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to people. They really are superb speakers - definitely worth a listen.
