Finding NHT Superzero/Superone in the UK?

625 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  fatbottom
I'm considering replacing B&W 601 for rears with NHT Superzero or Superone's- to match my NHT HDP-2 sides, Kef Reference 2.2 mains, Kef 200 centre. Side & Rear speakers must be wall/bookshelf.. so no daft recommendations of 2.2's all-round! :D

I also have the chance of purchasing Definitive Technology BP-1X and BP-2X for about half price.

Room is quite small -4m x 4m. I cannot find any NHT dealers in the UK..nor find any Superzero/one stocks in Europe.

Are there any NHT suppliers in the UK that export?

Any thoughts appreciated for....

1) Changing B&W rears for non-matching Def. Tech Bipole BP 1/2's

2) Changing B&W rears for matching Super line..

3) Leave it.

Not too sure of the Superzero (having 85hz LF) thinking the Superone is the better option (will set to small 80hz)

Hummm. So you want to replace B&W's in the rear with NHT superones (which have been discontinued for at least 2 years) to match your NHT HDP-2 sides? All this with a KEF front end setup?

I just don't get it. Why not get some small KEF's for the back 4 and be done with it?

I know, I know, no daft recommendations. Onecall.com is about the only place you can still find superones/zeros.

I guess you are saying the NHT's match the KEF's but the B&W's don't?
Well finding matching Kef Reference bookshelves (or non direct surrounds) from the similar line would be the RDM One/Two's. They are way OTT quality wise for rear speakers. Or the TDM34DS THX rears- but these are not reference drivers.. and I've been by a trustworthy source are inferior in sound quality to the NHT dipoles. I prefer (and need) slimish side speakers- bookshelf with bracket will be too big.

The HDP are great speakers- don't wish to sell them off. Just get the matching NHT's is possible.

Yeah spotted onecall- Zero's are excellent price.. but they don't sell outside the US. :-(

[edit] Yeah planning on replacing the B&W to match the sides. That should help side/rear panning. I think partial mixing is OK as long as high quality (good sounding) speakers are used.
