Good unit, sounds great & looks great too (important as a centre channel). Movie dialogs are incredibly crisp, and never lost in the aural shuffle.
Bought these along with the superones, but actually think this was the better buy... I would rate it a 5 for performance, but only 4 for value as it is a little pricy.. wish this forum had a 4.5 rating, or splits for value/performance/esthetics/features, etc..

Strength:

Great sound. Matched perfectly with my Super Ones and Super Zeros.

Weakness:

none

I returned my super center and bought this one instead. What a great decision on my part. It has a little more bass for special effects and the grille doesn't fall off every other minute. The diologue is crystal clear. This center is great!

I have recently purchased this as a center channel along with VT1.2's as the frontL&R and super0nes as my rear and I think it sounds wonderful. The voices are clear, and their is a decent bass response coming from the center. I encourage everyone looking for a center(I purchased mine for 215 from Uncles) to consider this unit if they are in that price bracket.

Just received a NHT VS1.2A Center SpeakerHow come I don’t here anything from you guys on this one ?
I was anticipating for the famous reproduction quality in producing
wonderful piano and even out of the boxes after a day my first impression…
I find it neutral and just slightly towards the bright , handled the mid’s well
with no sign of edginess, came with 2 mounting bracket systems and a tilt bar
for the top of the TV and a paper template for 16" on center common studs
walls and matched the speaker perfect
I have a 80 watts system and I did my duty and floored it and
it didn’t even cough, (considering that it’s rated 15-150 watts )
I look forward to it breaking it in and telling you the
results of how it seasons in.

Just bought a pair of these to use as front speakers (@$200 ea.) I can't believe the sound these put out. Bass is lacking, of course, as the largest driver is only 4.5" But I was even surprised that there was any bass response at all. There is a very even sound, until you get down quite low. The highs are incredible... clear and strong, but not overpowering. I'd add this to your list if you're looking for good speakers on a budget. Many stores look at them as only a center speaker, so they might not show them to you. They also feature NHT's beautiful cabinets. I am going to go back to the store soon and get another one for my center channel!

The center speaker and subwoofer probably the 2 most important components of a system am I right? So why would you settle for anything less? NHT does a fantastic job of creating a tight, crisp response from this good-looking speaker. I have it matched up to a pair of NHT SuperZero Xu up front, SuperOne Xu in the rear, and a Velodyne CT-120 12-inch sub (which explains why my rear speakers are larger than my front). Blowing stuff up never sounded so good in Dolby Digital 5.1 from my Sony DVP-S7000 DVD player! Besides that, everything is made in California - the best of both worlds!

I have never formally reviewed this system for publication, but I do own one and employ it as a center speaker in my smaller system. I have compared it to the custom-made center in my big system, and also recently very favorably compared it to an Atlantic Technology System 270 series center that I have on hand to review. (The AT 270 Series home-theater system is a great item, please note.) I also compared it to a Polk Audio CS245, also on hand to review and write up for publication.
I think the VS1.2 speaker is a fine unit, and believe that a pair of them would be good enough to also serve (vertically positioned) as left and right main speakers, supported by a good subwoofer, of course. Three VS1.2's across the front (hopefully with the all three vertically mounted, to take advantage of the MTM array), with maybe two to four (depending on the brand of surround processor utilized) surround speakers of decent quality (Super Ones or Super Zeros, say), and backed up by a good, budget-grade subwoofer with real potency (I have reviewed a Hsu TN1220 that would fill the bill, nicely), would, I think, deliver sound that was equal to and probably superior to, the vast bulk of the so-called "high-end" speaker systems currently available. Certainly that kind of package can hold its own with anything at or near its price category

Nice work, Ken Kantor.
