Absolutely! I use a pair of Hsu HB1-Mk2 horn loaded speakers as well as the Hsu VTF-3 MK4 subs. The sub is self powered so I use a pair of Bottlehead Paramount 300B monoblocks driven by a Transcendent Sound Grounded Grid preamp. This is all hooked up to a flatscreen monitor and for all intent and purpose, the dialog is locked to the center and there is no real 'sweet' spot. One can wander around the room and it all sounds good.
All of the low level detail that was somewhat lost with my fairly recent Onkyo 7.2 rig was recaptured.
I have also noticed that I am running it 3-5 dB lower with the tube gear than the SS since I am hearing more.
