I was just banned for 3 days for stating my opinion about my SVS product and the other SVS products I have or had in the past. I have also had numerous posts deleted and threads taken down just because they told me I was not allowed to talk about SVS. The main thread that was deleted that really got on my nerves was a VERY popular thread about my change from a PB-12NSD to a 16-46+. In the thread I talked about my trip to SVS, the 60-90mins of listening I did at their shop when I compared the 20-39+ to the 16-46+ side by side, then reasons for my choice of the 16-46+ and finally my thoughts about the performance when I got the sub home. It was a helpful thread with many posts and many interested readers, yet the MOD took it down and said it was not proper and I am not an "official" reviewer so I had no right to post my thoughts and opinions on these products....YES HE ACTUALLY SAID THIS TO ME!!! They fear that I am marketing for SVS, yet the point of my threads was to tell people about the product I own, the performance I am experiencing and my overall thoughts and opinions on my subwoofer. Am I a professional NO, but I am no dummy when it comes to audio... Do I like my SVS product YES........does SVS pay me or give me anything for telling people about my opinion NO. It just stinks that the AVS MODS are ANIT-SVS ....that is now clear to me because I see countless other threads about other companies that remain up with even more biased statements that what I had posted. I hope that AVS members who are also members here read this and realize what is going on. Since the Audioholics incident AVS has cracked down on posts about SVS and most of the SVS threads. Maybe we should take our "business" elsewhere...namely right here. It seems here we are free to talk and discuss and share thoughts and opinions no matter what level of experience we have!! Let's change over to HOME THEATER FORUM!!!
