Veracity HT2 of the Month/Week/Day
« on: 25 Oct 2008, 02:06 am »
Hi Guys,

I thought I'd start a gallery for veracity ht2 speaker owners.  This speaker doesn't seem to get as much publicity of the other's in Jim's range.  I don't know because it sounds great.

I'll start the ball rolling.



Veneer is african bosse pommele.

Regards

Rod

Those look great Rod.  I think the HT2 has actually been growing in popularity recently.  It seems to be a solid middle ground between the SongTowers, and the HT3, in both performance and price.  Hopefully some of the other owners will post some pic's of their HT2s, there have been some real beauties lately.

Cheers,
Funk

Make sure you guys state the veneer, and any special sauce you asked for.

Hi,

Thanks for that suggestion I updated the thread to indicate the veneer of the speakers.

Btw I think you'd be surprised of the sound quality of these speakers.  They use the phy ribbon and seas excel mid/bass as used in the ht3's.  I don't have a large listening room and the bass is quite sufficient for my needs.

I feel the same way about my SongTower RT's. 

Your speakers look VERY nice!

Thanks for mentioning the bass response.   People generally think of Scan Speak when the subject of bass reach in a 7" driver comes up.  A Scan does have a little more power handling than the W18, but not much.  And when you put two W18's in parallel (which effectively halves the excursion demands on each woofer), you have a potent bass machine.  Just a note of clarification.  the HT2 uses the LCY ribbon (as does the SongTower RT), while the HT3 uses the Aurum Cantus G2 tweet.

Hi Dennis,

Woops I miss quoted the Lcy tweeter.  Indeed this tweeter does sound very good.

I tried to upload Fluke242's picture of his ht2's but I couldn't get it to work.

I truly love my 5.1 setup and find the bass to be just fine for most musical recordings. They are however a little short extension wise for home theatre. I will be back in Mich. next week where the speakers presently reside and hopefully will be able to post some images and review the system as i am bringing back some reference material with me. Maybe Jim will have a Song Sub for me to listen to and incorporate into my system to compare it against the MFW-15's

I look forward to your impressions, especially if you spend some time with the SongSub.

Speaking of subs - I am more than pleased with the low end on the HT2 for my needs.  I would like try an ultra fast sub one day - but my HSU is just too slow in comparison (VTF2 MK2).  The HT2's are just so tight and fast on the low end.   :)

Hi Guys,

Fluke242's speakers are really breathtaking.

If there are any other ht2 owners please try to post a picture of your speaker.

Saw this pair at the shop before they were shipped and they are to this date one of the best if not the the best looking set of speakers i have ever laid my eyes on including my own

Hi Guys,

We are getting spanked by the Songtower thread.  Any new HT2 owners please post pictures of your new speakers.

Fluke, consider when you do the sub upgrade to replace your HSU with a JL F112 to match with those incredible looking speakers. It is the basis I judge all other subs I come across and have built thus far.


I think its taken far to long for me to join over here....    But I'm here....   

Terry, I look forward to the day I get to listen to your new HT2's...    I can't imagine they would be any less spectacular then the RT ST's....    Also, I can't wait to meet you at the end of the month for the Sub GTG....
