    Has anybody out there compared the two HSU(VTF-3MK2) and Paradigm(PW-2200)?
    My HT is used for movies about 80% of the time, but still like to listen to 2ch music.
    Any advice would be appreciated!

    I have the VTF-3MK2 and highly recommend it. The Paradigm was ok for HT use, but its not very good for music in comparison to my VTF. You cant go wrong with the VTF.

    I have a PW-2200 and it sounds great with music, It has more than enough punch for HT also. Solid to 20 hz and never boomy.[​IMG]

    How much did you pay for your PW-2200? I am looking for the best value I can get in the $550 range...

    Thanks,

    I have a VTF3 Mk2 paid $790 Cdn. Definitely the biggest bang for my buck. It handles music and HT well. Can't miss purchase.

    Thank you all for your opinions they have been very helpful. Since I live in the US, I think that I am leaning toward the HSU VTF-3MK2. The monkey wrench is that I have had responses from other HT forums that mention the SVS PB12-ISD or SVS PB12-ISD/2 as a comparable sub?? I would love to hear them side-by-side.
