I use NHT speakers in my surround system and audio system. The left and right speakers are NHT VT2.4 towers with metal tweeters. I find the speakers to be fine for movies, but not very good for music. They are too bright and forward. Lately I have been using my old Linn Tucan mini monitors for music. Even though they have a ceramic tweeter, they are less "hard" sounding than the NHT speakers. However, they are too small for my room. Last night I auditioned a pair of new Audio Monitor Gold speakers in my house. They also have metal tweeters. To my surprise, they soundsd very similar to the NHT speakers. The only difference was that they were not as "forward" as the NHT speakers. However, they were still too "bright and hard" for me. Based upon your experience, do all speakers with metal dome tweeters sound similar? Kind of "too bright" and "too forward"? Do fabric dome tweeters sound less "bright, forward and hard"? Thanks.
