I think it may have to do with low sales into the Canadian market. Hsu was sold through Accessories for less and they have since dropped Hsu and started up with SonicBoom and SVS. I wonder if it had to do with Hsu's willingness to still ship to Canada even though there was a distributor up here. I know it was about $50-$100 cheaper to buy direct from Hsu than to have bought from AFL. I know SVSound will not sell to Canada, they tell you that you have to purchase from Sonicboomaudio.
