Acoustic Research’s HC6s will certainly catch the eye of those looking for a compact, elegantly designed home-theater speaker system. This six-speaker set sounds good too, too. This six-speaker set sounds pretty decent, too. All six speakers, including the subwoofer, have a Glossy-black, piano-like finish, and neatniks will appreciate Acoustic Research’s considerate inclusion of a pair of white cotton gloves. The system includes four identical, 8-inch-tall satellite speakers (with 3.5-inch woofers and 1-inch tweeters), a 13-inch-wide center-channel speaker (with two 4-inch woofers and a 1-inch tweeter), and a powered subwoofer with an 8-inch driver. Except for the subwoofer, all of the speakers are magnetically shielded so that you can place them near your TV. About the AR HC6. Written by Crutchfield’s Barry M. For a surround sound experience that pleases on every level, check out AR’s new HC6 system. The sophisticated sonics of its four matched satellites, low-profile center channel speaker, and powered subwoofer are perfectly complemented by the stylish, high-gloss finish of their cabinets. Team the HC6 system with virtually any home theater receiver, and you’ll thrill to its faithful reproduction of cinematic surround sound. The satellites each pair a 1″ silk dome tweeter and a 3-1/2″ polypropylene woofer to deliver smooth highs and crisp, clean midrange. The timbre-matched center speaker flanks the same tweeter with dual 4 woofers. All five speakers are video-shielded, so you can place them on or near your TV without fear of picture degradation. The subwoofer couples a 100-watt (RMS) amp with an 8 coated cellulose woofer to enliven your movies and music with authoritative bass extension. It sports the same lustrous black finish as the satellites and center channel. Smooth and liquid, Detailed without being bright yet has a warmth that is very satisfying and engaging to listen to for long periods of time, bass is articulate, quick, tight, clean and strong down to 36HZ, the beautiful finish is an added bonus, heavy for their size, sounds better overall than my Snells. I have owned this package for about 6 months and feel that I can now leave an educated and honest review about these great speakers and sub. The HC6 is the best all-round speaker package that I have owned. About 14 years ago I bought 2 channel system that was considered to be The Giant Killer of it’s time, the Snell Acoustic E-III’s matched with the Adcom GFP-555II preamp and Adcom GFA-555II amp with a Denon DCD-1560 cd player that is still one of the better cd player values of all time in my opinion. The Snell’s always seemed a little bright sounding to me but had very clean bass and the upper end and mids were nice and open. About 2 years ago I bought a Musical Fidelity Integrated amp that had a tube sound which tamed the brightness of the Snell’s and was suitable for about a year, I was looking to get rid of the large Snell’s and sell off my expensive amp and consolidate to a smaller Home Theater speaker but did not want to spend a couple of grand. So I bought a Onkyo HTS-650 speaker package that included speakers, sub and Onkyo 100 watt receiver that was highly rated on CNET. This was definitely louder and clearer than the Onkyo and very impressive for Home Theater use but was just too much bass even turned down and still missing something? I was lucky enough to run across a copy of The Perfect Vision Magazine Year End Editor’s top picks at a local book store. Music had life again and the Home Theater sound was very impressive, not as big and loud as the Ascends but tonally much better and much more listenable for long extended periods of listening. I found that the HC6 will let you here weaknesses in your components as I did using the Integra DTR-5.3 receiver which sounded thin in the upper ranges on music and some movies. I also use Analysis Plus interconnects and AP Oval-12 speaker cables with factory terminated ends which I had to crimp to make them fit in the small gold plated terminals on the speakers. Go find them if you still can and sit back and know you have found the True Giant Killer! Acoustic Research’s HC6s. HOME THEATER SOUND : REVIEW. The HC6 system — four satellites, a center-channel, and a subwoofer — arrived in a single large box about the size some subwoofers come in. It’s a pretty compact system. Unpacking the speakers turned out to be a bit of a shock though, since they are finished in an incredibly elegant piano-black lacquer. This was entirely unexpected for a system sporting such a reasonable price. The grilles add to the luxe look — they’re stretched over thin frames that stand off the face of the speakers on four small chrome posts that insert into rubber grommets. There are four identical satellites, each with a 3.5″ woofer and a 1″ soft-dome tweeter; a conventional center-channel speaker using two 4″ woofers flanking a single 1″ soft-dome tweeter; and a subwoofer sporting a single 8 driver. The back of the satellites features an integral rounded port and a set of all-metal gold-plated binding posts. While the binding posts are a huge improvement over the spring-clip connections found on much of the competition, they dont allow the use of banana plugs. The satellites and center-channel also have threaded inserts on the back for optional wall- or ceiling-mount brackets. The ported subwoofer has the standard connections: line-level and speaker-level inputs, a phase switch, and variable crossover and level controls. Oddly enough, the binding posts for the speaker-level inputs on the sub do allow the use of banana plugs. Of course, the immediate question this arises is whether or not the company sacrificed sound quality for looks. Happily, this turned out not to be the case. My initial reaction to this system was that of terrific satellites in search of a decent sub. I was dead wrong. Theyre terrific satellites with a damn fine sub. It took me a while to come to this conclusion, however, as it took the system a while to break in fully, and the sub proved quite sensitive to location. After several weeks, out of frustration, I moved the sub two feet further away from the corner and a foot further out from the wall than I had previously placed it. The difference was astonishing. Not only did the sub finally integrate fully with the satellites, but the sound tightened up considerably as well. I spent some time positioning the satellites too. I found that I preferred the satellites with the tweeters a few inches above ear height and toed-in toward the listening position. While the satellites have threaded holes on the back for wall-mount brackets, I wouldnt recommend placing them that close to a wall because of the rear port. However, I had the backs within a foot of the wall without any obvious consequences. As with most other small systems where the main speakers all have roughly the same frequency response, I found that I preferred the HC6 system set up with the satellites and center-channel operating full range and the subwoofer blended in, using its own integral crossover. One of my standard reference DVDs is Contact. In the scene after Ellie found out that her department was losing use of the telescope array, you can hear her car cooling off on the right side of the room and the sounds of insects all around. The same was true of the dinner party, where the background chatter and sound of glasses clinking completely envelops you, but each sound is distinct at the same time. With the HC6 system, the detail and placement of these sounds is as precise as with any system Ive had in the house. During the test sequence in Contact, the explosion of the gantry and subsequent breakup of the machine are presented with real power, a testament to the capable bass the HC6 system exhibits. I expected the HC6 sub would fail this torture test miserably, but it didnt. On the contrary, it succeeded beyond my wildest expectations. During Almost Famous, I was taken completely by surprise by the bass drum during the Fever Dog concert scene. Again, I was expecting the little AR sub to wimp out when compared to larger designs. I neednt have worried. It produced plenty of clean bass for this scene to work. More importantly, the system was always accurate in its portrayal of the action on the soundtrack. And the sense of space and soundstage during the concert scenes was always convincing and involving. This shows excellent integration of the surrounds with the three front speakers. This is an element that must be present for good home theater. Next I loaded up The World is Not Enough. The center-channel speaker presented the softer dialogue in its talky scenes clearly. The center-channel could sound slightly muted at lower volume levels; however, this was corrected quickly once vocals ramped up in level. This movie did present one of the few times during the course of the review that the subwoofer showed some weakness due to its diminutive size. There are several scenes with extended passages of low bass, and it was here that the AR sub had trouble keeping up. One of my favorite CDs of the past few years is from former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and The Rhythm Kings, Struttin Our Stuff [Velvel/Bottom Line I0R1]. This is a collection of very hip electric blues — not exactly what you might expect from a former Stone, huh? The AR system really kicked butt with this CD. From the bass drum and piano in “Motorvatin Mama” to the electric organ in “Hole in My Soul, ” to the electric guitars in “Tobacco Road, ” everything was right on target. It had me doing a lot more than just tapping my toes. If Struttin Our Stuff is one of my favorite CDs, then Holly Cole is definitely one of my favorite vocalists. On “I Can See Clearly Now” from Dont Smoke In Bed [Blue Note CDP 077 7 81198 2 1], Coles voice is natural and airy without any of the nasal qualities Ive heard from most systems in this price range. The breadth and, to a lesser extent, the depth, of the soundstage on “So And So” was more than merely excellent; it was almost breathtaking. Placement of instruments within the soundstage was spot on. Next up was Yo-Yo Mas Inspired by Bach: Six Gestures – Cello Suite No. 6 [Sony Classical S2K 63203]. The HC6 system reproduced the richness and warmth of the instrument, maintaining solid image placement while, at the same time, providing enough ambiance that there was no hint that I was listening to a moving-coil speaker instead of a ribbon or electrostat. The AR system is close in size and price to the PSB Alpha Intro I reviewed several months ago. The HC6 system looks considerably more expensive in its black-lacquer finish than the PSB in its pebble-grain vinyl. The AR satellites are also somewhat larger than the PSBs, although both systems sport similarly sized drivers. Both systems come with 8 subwoofers. Overall, the sound of the two systems is very similar. While the PSB center-channel speaker is slightly clearer at lower volume levels than the AR, its sound is also somewhat leaner overall. Both subs do a respectable job of producing bass down in the 35Hz to 40Hz range, although the AR sounded cleaner once it was positioned properly. The PSB subwoofer was a little less sensitive to placement than the AR, though if you have some flexibility, this should pose no problem. Compared to the Paradigm Atom loudspeakers, the ARs are a little more extended and open-sounding at low volume levels, making them easier to listen to. However the Atoms are better balanced at extremely high volume levels. Soundstaging and imaging are very good with all three systems, and I would have a hard time picking one over another using this area of performance alone. However, for overall balance, I like the middle ground that the AR HC6 system represents best. It was slightly warmer than the PSB system, making it my preferred system for music. The AR’s detail and extension surpass those of the Paradigm, which makes late-night listening a pleasure. Used within the limitations of its design, this is a stunning system in all respects — one that should not be ignored due to price or size by anybody looking for a top-notch system capable of doing justice to both music and movies in a small- or medium-sized room. AR has achieved something significant with the HC6. To me, this is truly exciting stuff. This is the price range most of my friends and co-workers live in, and Im thrilled to finally have something I feel is worthy of recommendation. As far as Im concerned, this is the new reference standard for its price point.
