The PSA MT110 is a horn type speaker right?

Isn't the Hsu a coaxial design? Aren't you looking at CD/horns?

Listen with your ears, and not judge with your eyes.

the ccb8 is coaxial I think. Prefer to explore horns if possible. I believe it will give a different HT dimension, esp dialogue.

Frankly, I am very new to pro speakers. So any suggestions on other brands/ models are welcome!

Honestly, coaxials are waveguides too, just look at the kef LS50 polars or off axis response.  You can't get that kind of even smooth dispersion without a waveguide. I have not seen any measurements of the CCB 8 from Hsu. But the materials all point to the fact that this is a full blown constant directivity design, ie horn /waveguide. Being a Coaxial, and constant directivity to boot , it's superior to a regular 2 way TM horn design.

Don Keele helped design the pole piece and woofer cone profile to act as a constant directivity waveguide. Keele is most well known for his work in CBT, which are a type of constant directivity line arrays. Definitely knows his stuff. I think this is the one for you. Hehe. Looks great with grills on and off too.

BUT, you know what is the single biggest reason to get them? For the bragging rights. You can say, I'm going to get these CCB speakers. Or I just got these CCB speakers.

Yes the ccb8 looks very intriguing. Still waiting for AVS jim wilson review.

 It's in my shortlist. Maybe... I can organise a group buy once I confirm keke
