I purchased the former HTD Level 3, 5.1 system in 2003. I believe this is roughly equivalent to the current Level 2 system since they changed their product names a couple of years ago. I have it paired with an HK AVR 445 receiver, and I thought it sounded great - that is until my friend brought over his Swan Diva 6.1 towers a few weeks ago. I finally heard what speakers were supposed to sound like. The Swans were crisp, clear, and powerful, even on my HK AVR 445. I'm now in the market for new speakers. I still think HTD is a pretty good value. The Level 2 towers are $399/pair, and Level 3 are $799/pair. But the Swan Diva 6.1 towers are only $849/pair at OZ Home Theater and sound significantly better.
