Has anyone had a chance to demo the James EMB 1000? There have been some positive reviews however I've yet to hear/see any user reviews. I have one now and I'm comparing it to an SVS 25-31 PC+. As a newbie I'm fairly sure I don't have the subs properly calibrated. Nevertheless, the SVS sounds and feels much louder however this can be due in part to it being in a corner. The James due to it's small size is positioned between my fronts (Paradigm 60's V.3). The James "seems" a little leaner despite the gain being significanly higher than the SVS. For slam impact during a movie there is no comparison. That's nice but my usage leans much more to music (70%/30%). I listen mostly to classic jazz and R&B. The James seems more than up to that task. The wife prefers the size of the James however opinions cost $$. She isn't kicking in any so she doesn't have one. Any thoughts? Let's keep it simple for the new guy OK. Thanks!
