Haven't auditioned the Ultra or Sierra, but the SM-55 made my short list of bookshelf speakers that I have auditioned. And if you can get a pair for half price, that's a heck of a deal. Here are a...

I was surprised to find out that the Hsu speakers were horn type. I use to be pretty sensitive to horn speakers. And while I thought they sounded pretty good and certainly didn't raise a red flag,...

Between PSA and SVS, the company I like the best is … both! I have both a PSA XS30 in a 3,400 cu. ft. room and an SVS SB13-Ultra in a 3,500 cu. ft. room. The Ultra is for music only and the XS30 is...

The only problem I see with Hsu is that they charge shipping both ways, making it an expensive audition if you don't care for them and need to ship them back. So check with Hsu on shipping charges. ...
