Can anybody compare an NHT SB2/SC1 setup to the Ascend "Series 2000" ('170/'370/HM-200) package? Looking for 50/50 music/HT.


As a point of reference, I've listened to a bunch of stuff, and so far like the Totem Dreamcatchers best, but they're slightly more $$. [Also liked the Mirage Omnisat soundstage, but I'm so-so on the sound for the $$.]


I know the enthusiasm for the Ascends, but the NHTs are a smidge smaller, can be white (WAF), and get good reviews. It'll be 2 weeks 'till I can possibly hear the NHTs, and I haven't heard the Ascends.


Thanks!

On the Ascend site, the CBM-170's were compared to the SB3's. That might help you out.


I have heard the Dreamcatcher, it is different than the CBM-170, so the CBM-170 may not be to your liking. To me, the Dreamcatcher sounded thin.

I think it would be a very close call as both Ascend CBM-170 & NHT SB2 are very nice sounding speakers. :)
