HSU HB1 Mk2 Speaker ReviewSee price at checkout. Why don't we show the price? Sellers have the right to set their own prices independently, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be displayed or communicated to others. Because the seller's price on this item is below the manufacturer's "minimum advertised price" the manufacturer may not allow the seller to show you the seller's lower price until you take further action, such as clicking on a drop down menu, placing the item in your cart, or proceeding to checkout. The steps required depend on the terms of the manufacturer's minimum advertised price policy. Taking these steps allows eBay to show you the seller's great price consistent with eBay's goal of always bringing consumers like you the lowest possible prices on the widest selection of products.
HSU HB1 MK2 Speakers

Hsu Research ranks high on home theater enthusiasts' "most favored brands" list, largely because of its high-performance, low-priced subwoofers. A horn-loaded, aluminum-dome 1-inch tweeter provides the highs. Incidentally, I've had this pair around my listening room for a while, largely because they're efficient enough to give me good, full-range sound no matter what kind of amp I hook 'em up to -even the little 2. Geoff raved about the HB-1 MK2, ranking it among the best in this roundup, so maybe I'll just let him talk. The transition from the woofer to the horn tweeter could be smoother; we all felt that the HB-1 MK2 could use a little more upper-midrange energy. That softness in the upper mids gives it a sound you might call polite, or you might call soft, depending on your taste. For an audiophile wanting to revel in delicate, detailed recordings - chamber or folk music, for example - the HB-1 MK2 probably isn't the best choice.
Hsu Research HB-1 Bookshelf Speaker System
Let's face it, everyone loves a genuine bargain and home theater enthusiasts are no different. The reality is that there is no better time to be a budget-conscious home theater enthusiast than right now. Each year, more and more affordable products are introduced to the marketplace to compete favorably with product lines that have grown stale in comparison. While the subject of this review, Internet darling HSU Research's HB-1 MK2 Bookshelf Speaker isn't wholly new - it's been around for a few years now - it's still a genuine bargain and a worthy competitor to many of today's newer offerings. How much of a bargain is the HB-1 MK2? The HB-1 MK2 itself measures fifteen inches tall by eight inches wide and eight inches deep.
Three-hundred-dollar-per-pair speakers are not our usual fare at Stereomojo. We specialize in the "affordable high-end". We think anything much beyond that crosses the threshold into "luxury" products where the performance increases are small and come at a very high cost. While the Hsu's certainly meet the "affordable" requisite, who would think these unassuming bookshelf speakers would meet the second criteria? His experience there, including an extended visit with Dr. Hsu pronounced "shoe" who promised us the first pair available for review when they reached production, led to this review.
