    From your signature shouldn't you be on your way to support a retail store and not trying to hear a consumer direct product?

    Chris... Based on all the positive feedback for SVS on these forums over the years, I would hardly think SVS to be a "shady internet dealer" that sells discounted "b-stock" merchandise... I've already demo'd the SCII at a brick and mortar.

    Not all brick and mortar salesmen are knowledgeable, not all internet e-tail dealers on bizrate.com etc are shady...

    My apologies. Is Audio Concepts the only decent Hi-Fi store here in Houston? Is there some hidden gem I'm not finding?

    BTW- I'm all consumer-direct and factory authorized refurbs to the de-lite of my pocket book and ears. And no I haven't wasted any sales persons' time just to buy elsewere. I have had my time wasted out at All Star though. Love the CS from Jenny(?) at Sound World. Dis-like the set-up and poor service from others there.

    hell... it looks like I'll be demoing to myself... as I plan to take the plunge and just get myself a PB1-ISD...

    Was debating between price/usage/need to have more...

    Choices were PB1-ISD and PB2-ISD...

    Room is 13x14... in the end Tom told me all i needed to hear.

    In this type of room, the PB-1isd will extend down to the 18-20hz range and offer a clean 112-118dBs of bass. The PB-2isd (set to 20hz mode) will extend down to the 16-18hz range and offer an additional 3-5dBs of headroom(clean output capabilities). Both models will likely sound nearly identical to you...up until the PB-1isd approaches its clean output limits. At that point, the Pb-2isd will still have some headroom left so it will give you a more effortless/dynamic feel to the presentation. So if you will occasionally want to demo the system at/near reference levels, the PB-2isd would be the way to go.

    I don't get to reference level very often (gotta protect hearing and not put cracks in drywall [​IMG]
