I have been reading this forum for about 6 months now and have never posted before. First let me say that I want to thank everyone upfront for a quality forum with great really helpful information. I guess you could say I am a recycled audio junkie. I am sure I will date my self but I used to be so into this stuff that I still have an original advent outboard dolby unit. This was sold for reel to reels before dolby became standard and included in everything. I still own a pair of Large Advents and Polk 10's that are older than most of you. I just threw away my first cd player. I laughed when I realized it was a Yamaha CD-1. It was mfg in August of 1985. I remember there were probably 5 CD's available at that time. Well for the past 15 yrs life and family got in the way of my addiction. This past Christmas, I started to delve into HT. I know this is long and I apologize. The reason I could not wait anymore is that after much reading from this and other forums, I purchased an SVS 25-31pc+ this past week. I have driven Ron crazy over the past several months with what I am sure are the same questions he gets from most. It is my understanding it should ship on Monday and I should get mid week next week. I have to echo all the positive posts about this company. No question too small and the feedback has been great. I have auditioned a 20-39csi locally and was way impressed. It appears many svs owners are similar to the company because this guy, I had never met before, opened his house to me and let me listen and play as long as I wanted. Anyway, I will post my reactions when it arrives and I have set it up. Not to say I was preparing, but bought the radio shack sound meter back in January, just in case. Thanks again to all of you with your great information. I learn everyday!
