A bit of history, we remodeled the familyroom, my wife didn't like the PB2+ due to the color, showed her PB2Ultra she said "get it", ordered 3/19 with custom stain to match flooring. Delivery complete! about 45min ago, the driver helped me carry it into the familyroom. My wife came in to see what I'd done without her approving color, opened box and she said was "much better than the black one! Unpacked everything, my wife saw the sample I sent and handed to the our contractor...he said " they did a great job of matching the color" Now for the true test, did a quick calibration, all ports open, ss at 16Hz and got my now infamous demo DVD. After the 1st couple of tracks I notice that it sounds different...for the better. Not sure how, just better! The 1st scene I noticed the difference was Resident Evil SB, at the beginning when the guy is stealing the virus and places the tubes in the case and the case locks. With the 2+ it was a dull thud, with the 2U it had more punch. Definitly feels different, Black Hawk down Irene scene, the rotors have much more impact. The part where they show the prisoner and he's watching his tea before sipping. With 2+ I couldn't feel much, but the sound was there, with the 2U I could feel each blade go by.
