    Well, I finally did it. I'm sure my credit card and neighbors will hate me but oh well. You only live once. Ordered the 20-39CS+ and S1000. I can't wait.

    I'm jumpin' in on the same package, upgrading from a Polk PSW-350. Ought to be a pretty massive improvement, considering how muddy the Polk can be at volume.

    Call me crazy but I too have joined the SVS crowd this week.
    Took advantage of the SVS deal at HTS and ordered a 25-31CS to replace my 8 year old Velodyne 801X.
    You can't beat the price and it has to bang louder than my small Velodyne.
    So now I will have two decent subs in my HT, a Velodyne CT-120 and the 25-31CS.
    Looks like it will take SVS over a month to get all the orders done. HTS is reporting over 40 sold this weekend at their Group Buy.
    When is HTF having a Group Buy?

    Wow!
    Just received an email stating that my SVS sub is being shipped and should arrive on Friday. That was quick considering how popular the Group Buy was.
    Great work SVS!
    Thanks

    On Sunday 2/24.

    I figured that I wouldn't see my sub till the end of March but I guess most people are getting the larger 20-39CS's.

    Anyway its a good thing as I'm also getting an AudioSource Amp 5.3 that day from Audiogon.

    This has all come together very nicely.

    My old Velodyne 810X sub is going to my brother-in-law who is just getting into HT. I'm sure it will give many years of pleasure.

    Me too! Out with the old Altecs and in with the new dual 20-39CS+/Sampson S1000 package. I ordered mine yesterday (2/27). I wonder when I can expect mine? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My 20-39CS+ arrived last night. Now how do I get this huge idiotic grin off my face? I'm giving a mid-term exam today, and I need my mortician face. [​IMG]

    I was in your position a couple of weeks ago. After I got over the shock of how unbelievably big it was, I just fell in love with it.
    It rocks- you are going to love it!

    You are also going to find every loose item in your room. If anything will vibrate you'll know it right away..[​IMG]
    Enjoy it!

    Sound it like it will take a couple of day or more to get the shipping confirmation. I had placed my order on Feb. 28 and wonder when it's my turn to see the beast (20-39cs+/s1000)[​IMG]

    My 25-31CS came yesterday thanks to a great UPS driver in my area (no one was home at 11AM, so he made sure to come back at 5PM and drop off the sub cause he noticed the label and didn't want to leave it at UPS over the weekend!! What a guy!).
    And My God this is a big sub, I can only imagine what a 20 or 16 looks like in a room.
    It looks real sturdy and was impressively packaged.
    Unfortunately I won't be able to play with it till Monday as I'm working 12 hour shifts this weekend. But come Monday afternoon my HT should be rock'in.
    My wife looked shocked last night and can't understand why I now own my 3rd sub after getting a Velo ct-120 late last year. But how could I pass up the great HTS deal and I love my bass!
    Thanks SVS for the great service.

    >And My God this is a big sub,
    And you know what the advantage of the size is? You can wrap your arms around it and give it a big hug whenever you feel like it. [​IMG]

    Have fun John. Something about those bass toys that bring the little kid out in me as well.
    I wish I could hug my sub.
    You ever hug a beast before
    This is my 5ft tall, 20" wide & 20" deep Octosub with a 15" Adire Audio Tempest driver.
    My arms can't reach around this thing.
