HSU is a very good speaker company and is highly regarded, especially for sub woofers! Having never heard the HSU speakers, I cannot comment on them, but they get good reviews here on the AVS forum.
One things I will add...the HSU speakers have horn (compression) tweeters and while many people love the clarity and sensitivity of a speaker with Horn tweeters, some find horns to be shrill and fatiguing. MAKE SURE you listen to a speaker with a horn tweeter before you buy!
HB-1 MK2 : 60Hz – 20kHz +/- 2 dB, 92 dB / 1m, 6.5 inch woofer horn tweeter.
Ascend Acoustic CMT-340 SE: 45Hz - 20kHz +/- 3dB, 90dB @ 1 watt/ 1 meter, 2 6.5 inch woofers, dome tweeter
