Now Hear This or NHT as they are known in the specially AV business announced yesterday that they were returning to the business after a few months in hibernation. Their new business model will sell speakers online, leaving the ultra-competitive world of traditional retail distribution for the more profitable yet smaller customer base of selling direct. NHT will follow in the footsteps of Internet-direct speaker companies like Orb Audio, Aperion Audio, Emotiva, Outlaw Audio and many others.

NHT is currently owned by the original founders Chris Byrne and John Johnsen.
