NHT Improves on a Classic
The NHT SuperOne 2.1 has arrived. The latest version of the SuperOne provides the same terrific sonics of the Super Zero with enough bass response that a subwoofer becomes an option. The original SuperZero and SuperOne established NHT as a force in the world of high-value, high-performance audio. And now they continue the tradition with improved performance and at better pricing than the originals. The new NHT SuperOne 2.1 is a true-high end book shelf monitor that builds on the merits of it's predecessor and improves upon them. Transparency, detail, 'walk-around the stage' realism, it's all there, and so much more.
Providing the same terrific sonics of the SuperZero with great bass response.
Subtle improvements lower distortion, tighten bass response and improve power handling.
Compact, with Sealed Enclosure for Lifelike Bass
At just 11.6 inch tall, 7.25 inch wide, and 8.5 inch deep, the SuperOne 2.1 is very compact. However, unlike most small speakers, which try to fool you with boomy, pseudo-bass from a port, the SuperOne 2.1's acoustic suspension (sealed) enclosure focuses on making beautiful, lifelike midrange and high frequencies with surprisingly musical bass.
Build quality is stunning and what you've learned to expect. The compact, well-braced cabinet is naturally strong and stout. Stronger than larger boxes. As a result, it doesn't have the to deal with the box vibrations that interfere with the critical midrange performance of its counterparts. The speaker's narrow front face is almost all speaker, providing remarkable imaging and detail.
Better than an Update
No mere update, the SuperOne 2.1 makes some subtle improvements compared to its predecessor. Specifically, NHT added a 2nd/3rd order crossover, effectively blocking more of the bass that tries to sneak into the tweeter, and a newly revised woofer. These small changes significantly lower distortion, tighten bass response and improve power handling making the SuperOne sound even better than the original.
More Improvements Inside
The SuperOne 2.1 sports a 6.5 inch long throw pulp cone woofer and a 1 inch silk dome tweeter. It features a lower crossover point at 2.4kHz than the original using a 12 dB/octave LP and a 18 dB/octave HP.
- Compact bookshelf speaker offering high-performance audio at a value
- Sealed enclosure for tighter, more musical bass
- 6.5-inch long throw woofer and 1-inch silk dome tweeter
- Braced cabinet reduces vibrations at high volume
- 125 watts RMS with a 2.4kHz crossover
- Wall/Ceiling mountable (1/4 inch #20 threaded inserts--2 each). Mounting brackets sold separately

The first thing I noticed was the sound was 3-4 db lower in level when switching from the Infinitys to the NHTs. That's reasonable to expect since they have the same size and type of drivers (6.5" LF & .75"/1" dome HF) and the Infinitys use a front ported bass reflex while the NHTs use a sealed enclosure/acoustic suspension design. Aurally, with the volume cranked up to the same loudness as the Infinitys, I noticed the Infinitys were harsh at mid & higher frequencies, while the NHTs were crystal-like in their clarity - and more 'spacious' in their sound, while still permitting me to identify instruments and their staging (location). Piano selections are better on the NHTs. The bass went a tad lower, or so it seemed, with the Infinitys... but hangover may have been partially responsible. The bass on the NHTs was distinct and well stated - great for music. For disaster movies - explosions, etc - you'll need a subwoofer with either speaker. I'll continue to A-B the speakers, but for now, the NHTs have found a home in my office - and I'll recycle the Infinitys in my upstairs hobby room (They are quite decent!). The NHTs were purchased on a whim, but proved to be a great choice for my office's music stereo.
3-30-15 I strayed... I bought a pair of Klipsch KB-15 ($130 Prime) bookshelf speakers (1" horn loaded dome & 5.25" LF driver - ported - 94db SPL) and A-B -ed them with my NHT's. I had to ride the volume control - the NHT's are seriously less sensitive than the Klipschs. I really liked the sound of the Klipsch... but still loved the NHTs... if only they had more bottom end! I remedied that - I added a JBL SUB 550P 10" acoustic suspension subwoofer. Enough of this playing - A-B - ing was tiring. I removed the Klipsch speakers - and their wiring - but bought another pair when they went back on 'sale'. They will go upstairs for a mini-HT in my 'hobby' room - they do sound quite good by themselves. I like the 'wider' sound of the NHT domes - and all they were missing was a bit more bottom end - they have that now. It's been a week and I have my 'system'! The super quality JBL sub filled the missing bottom end in nicely. I finally settled on it's placement, LF cut-off, and level setting - really perfection. But... it started with the NHT SuperOne 2.1's - get a pair - then save your sheckles for a decent subwoofer!
4-25-15: It's been over a month since I removed the Klipsch pair, leaving just the NHT's and, much of the time, the JBL SUB 550P sub-woofer. Sometimes, I listen to music without turning the sub on - the NHT's are that good. I really enjoy their crystal highs and controlled bass - it makes me recall my long-lost original Large Advents... except for the NHT's much smaller size - simply amazing! And, when you need that bass 'extension', I have a pretty good sub.
10-25-15 Six more months of daily use and I still love the NHT's! I did wire them to the B speaker position on my Onkyo TX-8020 controls the subwoofer output with the A speaker control. This permits turning the sub on and off by turning the A speaker on or off. To show how one can fool one's self, I was enjoying a favorite Bonnie Raitt album, Longing in their Hearts, when I wasn't sure the sub was on - and checked. Nope - I had turned it's AC off nearly a month ago, while searching for interference on my AM radio! No sub for a month and I didn't miss it! Yeah, the NHT's are pretty good without a sub. And the Onkyo's 50WPC (RMS) is perfect for my office, too. I recycled the older Sony BR disc player to my office stereo, as it has analog audio outputs and most current BR disc players only have digital outputs, and have watched several movies over my 2.1 system - the NHT's have done well there, too. It was a very good buy!
Both times I've purchased NHT SuperOnes, I evaluated both the SuperOnes and SuperZeros with an NHT subwoofer. As I said, the SuperOnes don't need the subwoofer, although I prefer the combination over the SuperOnes alone. On the other hand, the SuperZeros do need the subwoofer, and even with the sub, I prefer the SuperOnes with a sub to the SuperZeros with a sub. I'd only purchase SuperZeroes if you literally don't have room for SuperOnes or if you are using them to supplement SuperOnes.
These are small, beautiful and produce stage presence sound better than any speakers we have used. Also, they are very easy to carry and set up, a big plus for geezer rockers.
We are planning to purchase a set of tower speakers for our studio, thanks NHT for a great sounding and affordable speaker.
