Did you listen first?
02/15/22 at 17:33:08
 
Greetings, been reading every post related to the HR-1. The comments are wonderful and these seem like great speakers in addition to being just beautiful to look at. Question is, were you able to listen before purchasing or was it a blind purchase based on others perception of the sound?

I have no way of listening prior unless there is someone in NH with an open invitation for me.

In my case, blind. I had Radial speakers from Steve and Bob and was inclined to like the HR-1. I love both my pairs.

I bought "blind" too.  The HR1 is a fantastic speaker.  My only proviso is that for a very large space, they may run out of steam and not fill the room.  This isn't just an HR1 issue though.
