let me see if i can keep this thread alive....dont know if it qualifies as vintage (built btwn 1993 - 2004 i think) but i finally made a deal for the NHT 3.3. wont be picking it up til very end of Sept or even early Oct.
as mentioned, though slim and narrow, the 3.3s weighs 123lbs@ so there are certainly not for the casual collector. i auditioned them last sunday & til, i cant get the bass out of my mind. hmm did i say bass i meant BAD ASSSSSS BASSSSSSS!!!!! they are the most thunderous thangs ive ever listened to sans subs (even at high end treated dealer showrooms). from memory, they also super detailed, very clear, extended & seemingly accurate. again, they were abit sibilant on some material but i managed to wrangle some 6922 preamp tubes from seller to roll in my amp.
i hope these will be my end game setup. if they are good enough, then i mite even sell the Yami NS1ks.
did i mention they have bass? well they have BASS & go LOUD!!! with very quick transients! now for the month long wait..........
