I have finally gotten my system sounding really nice, thanks to addition of SVS25-31 and using a BFD to tame room response (in conjunction with the EFT software). Just the SVS by itself was a great improvement (much tighter than previous sub) but then EQing it makes for a really good result. Many people gave very helpful advice leading to this state of affairs, and I may have neglected showing my appreciation in some of the individual threads. So now, in no particular order (and this is not a comprehensive list!), thanks to Wayne Ph, BruceD, Jeremy A, Ken Woodrow, and others. I could also really say 'no thanks' to everyone on this forum for having gotten me so hooked on this HT Audio stuff. Hell I just wanted to get a DVD player for my wife for Christmas; now I have a whole system and an entirely new outlet for wasting time!
