What do you think of CMT-340SE's & SHO-10's ? I have read lot of reviews about it, do you think NHT Absolute Zeros are better than those ?
I would return the Klipsch & get 2 Rythmik LV12 subs.
Multiple subs improve bass response in your room so that one spot does not get all the bass and the other spots get little bass.
Well, objectively the Absolute Zero are better in terms of speaker measurement. Subjectively everyone will differ. Subjectively I think the NHT combined w/ great subs like the Rythmik will sound better than most $10,000 full range big towers.
I think subjectively you would also be happy with Ascend, SHO, and a lot of other speakers.
I can only tell you what I would buy.
I would probably buy the NHT + Rythmik if my budget were the same.
Regarding the frequency response tolerance +/- dB, the smaller the number, the more accurate the speaker. The $6,000 KEF 201/2 monitors and $3,000 Klipsch KL650 monitors are also +/-1dB tolerance in the critical 200Hz-10kHz frequency region (where most of the sound resides). Most accurate speakers are +/-2dB. Most very good speakers are +/-3dB.
But with that being said, not EVERYONE prefers accurate speakers. A lot of people also prefer speakers that measure +/-4dB, +/-5dB, +/-6dB, even +/-10dB.
Bottom line, you should buy the speakers that sound the best subjectively to you if you can audition. Otherwise, if buying "blindly", I would stick to accurate speakers.
