NHT Loudspeakers (Now Hear This) is a California, United States, speaker and audio component company. The company was founded by Chris Byrne and Ken Kantor in December 1986. Byrne primarily handled sales and marketing, while Kantor (introduced to Byrne by Michael Riggs, then at High Fidelity magazine) was responsible for design and engineering. NHT shipped its first product, the Model 1 loudspeaker, in 1987.

NHT home theater products include loudspeakers, A/V processors, and amplifiers. NHT professional processors and speakers are used in recording and production studios.

In 2004 NHT unveiled its XdS line of speakers and supporting processors. XdS speakers are DSP corrected active speakers with digital amplifiers.
