Hi, I am looking to spend approximately $1000 on speakers which will mainly be used to listen to bass heavy electronic music. From a few reviews I have read online the NHT Absolute towers look like a decent option. Although they seem to get great feedback from reviews on home theatre sites I haven't seen them mentioned much, if at all in the forums. I am getting a Rythmik FV15HP to go with it and an AVR which I am still in the process of deciding on. Thanks in advance for any help.

fwiw, just a suggestion take a look at the focal 814's ($729) at accessories4less.also i would look at ac4l for your avr needs. they are a authorized dealer on some major brands with great prices. dont let the refurbish aspect scare you as these are manufactured refurbs. and do come with some kind of warranty and are pretty much as new.

i'm so laid back,i'm laid out

Just a heads up I am in Australia so I cannot use your websites. Thanks though. Alos my budget has completely changed as I am now looking at the aperion verus grand tower, the reviews I have read really did make them sound like the right speaker for me. What are peoples thoughts on these and if there are any similar priced competitors? Thanks in advance
