I noticed in the long thread that you had 3 of the ultra bookshelves originally. How was that paired with the HSU subs compared to the towers with one bookshelf?\nAs much as I'd like to say "night and day!", it wasn't a huge jump. Maybe a little bigger soundstage but without doing a side by side it's really hard to do a comparison. I know upgrading my subs (to the Hsus) had a much, much bigger impact in sq. \n\nWhen I started this journey I had towers as an end goal in mind so I eventually got them and I love them. You're not really missing a whole lot with the bookshelf speakers and sub combo tho. I still even use the same crossover point.
