NHT To Relaunch As An Internet-Direct Speaker Company

After a long absence, NHT (now hear this), is reportedly relaunching as an Internet-direct speaker company. The company, after multiple owners is now being controlled by its founders but will face still competition from the likes of Orb Audio, Aperion Audio, Outlaw Audio, Emotiva and many others already powerful in this market.

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.
