I've spent several hours researching speakers for l/c/r. I've been able to narrow it down to three different models but have hit a wall. I'm considering HSU HB-1, Chase M-1, and ARX A1b.

Any further opinions/preferences/insight you can give me on those speakers would be much appreciated.

Sorry, I haven't heard any of them. Personally I recommend Ascend Acoustics. Are you sure Chase is still in business? Thought he (i.e. Craig Chase) went nuts with taxation or insurance or something and said screw everything?

Is it too free to control?" - Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) discussing commercial success in the music biz

Only one I heard was the HSU. Frankly hard to beat for the price. If these are the only choices...and I only heard one....go with HSU.

I wouldn't buy from Chase if one expects long term customer support. The products might be good, but the owner of that small business is wacko.

Thanks for the advice. I have narrowed it down to HSU or Arx.
