Well gang, many of you may remember a thread I started several years ago about this subject. I bought a Paradigm PW-2200 over a SVS mainly because I couldn't audition a SVS and didn't want to buy a sub site unheard, as it were!!! Well, since that infamous post, I have had the opportunity to hear several systems incorporating SVS subs, even one with dual 16-46 PC+'s. I have even auditioned a 25-31 PCi with my Paradigm Monitor series system and my brand new Magnepan system here in MY room. Now don't get me wrong, the PW-2200 is a great, musical sub...but it CAN'T compete with any of the SVS subs I've heard. I e-mailed Ron at SVS yesterday, and after his very helpful advice, I've placed an order this morning for a SVS PC-Ultra. I was also looking at the PB2-Plus real hard. A future remodel of my listening room makes the smaller footprint of the PC-Ultra my choice. So it took me several years to finally pull the trigger on a SVS, and Ron at SVS has been great to deal with, heck, he is only charging me double for my PC-Ultra. (JUST KIDDING....I HOPE!!) Anyone want to buy a PW-2200??
