Sleek, Affordable Floorstander
The Absolute Tower is NHT's first product of the decade. It's a sleek and affordable floorstanding speaker for high-performance music or home theater. The design combines NHT's critically acclaimed Absolute Zero bookshelf mini-speaker with two newly designed 5.25" woofers in a separate chamber, and houses the drivers in a slender column-like enclosure.
All-Acoustic Suspension Design
The Absolute Tower loudspeaker uses an all-acoustic suspension design. Acoustic suspension utilizes nature's perfect spring force, air, to damp and control the speaker motion like high performance shocks on a sports car. This significantly lowers distortion for long, fatigue-free listening and improves impulse response, too, allowing subtle detail to be revealed, making everything sound more real. Acoustic suspension designs also allow incredible power handling.
Gorgeous Cabinets and Finish
The Absolute Tower's floor standing cabinets are beautiful. They look delicate, yet they're incredibly robust. They are acoustically inert, so unwanted cabinet vibrations will never be added to your music. They weigh in at a bit over 35 lbs. each and are constructed of medium density fiberboard. The gently sculpted base puts the Absolute Tower on a stable footing and is weighted with a hidden steel plate to provide mass where it is acoustically desirable - further reducing cabinet-born resonances.
The Absolute Towers, like all NHT Classic Series loudspeakers, are finished with two primer coats, seven color coats of polyester paint, and topped with two coats of clear acrylic polymer. This piano-gloss black finish is an NHT hallmark.
An Affordable High-Performance System
These towers are voiced to work seamlessly with the NHT Absolute Zero for the surround speakers and the Absolute Center center channel speaker. Together, they add up to a surprisingly affordable home theater system.
For over 20 years, NHT's award-winning high-end yet affordable speakers and electronics have earned rave reviews. Many NHT designs sell used for close to their original retail prices. They continue to be one of the best audiophile values available.
