    SVS PB10-ISD Subwoofer Test & Review

    @Edward J M: First of all, thanks for your quick reply. Now, my room is fairly small, just about 17.5 square meters (~3.4m * ~5.2m) and only one half of that is being used for the HT (the couch is standing in the center of the room), so i'm sitting quite close to the speakers, the...

    SVS PB10-ISD Subwoofer Test & Review

    @Edward J M: You wrote in your (great) review that "In a moderate size room, its output capabilities are all most people will need. If you are a true bass head and like to listen at/near Reference Level, buy two PB10-ISDs - for only $800 you’d have a bass system that would rival other...

    Should i upgrade my B&Ws 300?

    As it is now, i'm tending to the 602's and LCR600 (it appears they are wonderful, can't wait ) for the front when it'll be time for upgrading speakers but am quite certain that the first think i'll do now is buying a new receiver, probably the NAD T762, 'cause i believe that's one of the...

    Should i upgrade my B&Ws 300?

    Thank you for posting! Hmm..., as it appears after reading your post upgrading to the 602's from the 303's would be a major improvement in sound, so i'm almost certain now that buying these speakers is one of the next acts i'm going to do, the only thing that bother me somewhat is your quote...

    Should i upgrade my B&Ws 300?

    No one here who would give me an advice? No B&W user? Come on, there are so many people posting in here, i can't believe that's it. Please.

    Should i upgrade my B&Ws 300?

    My current setup consists of four B&W DM303 for L/R/Surround, one LCR3 for the center and an active subwoofer (Jamo D7 Sub). Now i'm quite happy with these speakers (i'm speaking of the B&Ws, not the sub which is superb), they can play pretty loud and produce a fine sound and are quite possible...

    Difference between JBL speakers?

    What do you guys think, how would the JBL S310II for L/R and JBL S Center II compare to the B&W 603 S3 for L/R and LCR 600 S3 for center? Which speakers are superior? If i look on their prices, the B&Ws seem much more capable, but what's the reality?

    My PC as a pre/pro

    I'm aware of all the issues you mentioned as i'm a long time PC user and as i wrote above am using it as a DVD player and have it digitally connected to my receiver. What i am interested in is the sound quality of such a setup compared to that of a receiver in the $500 price range. Have nobody...

    Are NAD and B&W a good match?

    What a diskussion! But sadly in the wrong direction. Why again and again i stumble upon people on forums like this who don't like B&W, even hate them. Hmm.., maybe their reactions are justified, maybe they can't compete with some other brands sonically, i truly don't know as i'm only a newbie...

    My PC as a pre/pro

    I am not sure if this is the right place for posting this. If not the mods have the permission to move it . Now, currently i own an Onkyo 595 receiver but in recent times it is more and more evident to me that it's power isn't sufficient to drive my speakers at higher volumes so i have decided...

    B&W owners or anyone that has auditioned them...

    Greetings! @ Greg_TSL: I have seen that you have the ASW650 sub from B&W - how does it sound as i may buy one in the near future (currently i own a Sony SA-WM40 sub - how much of an improvement would the ASW650 be?)? Could you please explain the sounding of this sub in greater detail...

    Are NAD and B&W a good match?

    @ BradJudy: Not even close, except you would consider Slovenia close to Colorado. No, i haven't yet had the chance to listen to an T752 but i saw a thread on a german forum where one user has bought it and is quite excited about it. He prefers it over the HK 520 and Denon 3802 for example. @...

    Are NAD and B&W a good match?

    I ask since i'm about to buy one of the new NAD receivers (my current receiver is the Onkyo 595 but i want to upgrade), the T752 or T762, because i have heard good things about these receivers, especially for music reproduction (my main interest lies in home cinema but music is also important...

    Receiver anomaly?

    No, i haven't any surge suppression. Hmm..., maybe it was a voltage problem, who knows. But since i haven't had any problems of this kind with any of my electrical devices so far, i'm sceptical. Any more suggestions?

    Receiver anomaly?

    Greetings! Something strange happened with my receiver. Suddenly all the controls went dead. The receiver was still working but I was unable to change any settings do to the fact that nothing happened after I pressed a button on the remote control and on the unit itself. I had to turn my...

    Annoying hum

    Wow, i have thought i am the only Slovenian in this forum but i was wrong ! How small the world is. Hvala za prevod! Aja, se nekaj: "line filter" - kateri slovenski izraz bi najbolje ustrezal tej napravi? Hvala ze vnaprej!

    As you might now i am not from an englisch speaking country so could you please explain what a "recepticle" and a "breaker" is? BTW, thanks for your replies.

    Annoying hum

    But i did all that what you have said - everything in the room was turned of and disconnected from the receiver (even the subwoofer) but it didn' help. Now that i turned the computer on and connected it back again i realize less hum on the other inputs (which aren't used) on the receiver than...

    Annoying hum

    Please people, could someone tell me what's wrong? Perhaps someone with the same receiver who had the same problems. It would be great if someone with the same model would test his unit the same way i did and then tell me what he gets. Please, i need feedback.

    I have the Sony SA-WM40 and it has a 2-prong power connector.

    Annoying hum

    Yes, Direct Mode is (almost) free of hum and also the Stereo Mode (non-direct mode) when the sub is disabled, the other modes are non-direct (isn't that logical - one is direct mode and the others are not?).

    Annoying hum

    I turned off (and unplugged) all the other devices so that only the receiver was on. Then i selected dvd input (coax 1 input) which of course hadn't any input signal (so that i could test the speakers without playing something) at that moment and set the volume to maximum. The funny thing is...

    Annoying hum

    For my taste there is to much hum that is produced from my speakers. When i come very close with my ears i can clearly hear the hum in the sound (receiver volume is set to 50), when i carefully listen i can swear i can hear it further away (normal listening position), too. If the volume level is...

    Crackling sound

    I would appreciate any opinion on the B&W DM303s and the LCR3 speaker and the B&W-Onkyo combination.

    Bass and treble

    You are right. In stereo mode the bass/treble controls works just fine. Thanks.
