I would go for the Hsu system by virtue of the subwoofer alone. The klipsch subs in these packages are usually very bad. The Hsu sub will be many times better. The speakers are a bit different. The Klipsch speakers are voiced rather hot in treble, and have a very crisp, forward sound. The Hsu speakers sound very good, but just not as 'aggressive'. I also think the Hsu bookshelf speakers will make for better surround speakers than the Klispch bipole designs in a seven channel system.
