I'm new to this forum altough I've been a hifi (and now HT) enthusiast for more years than I care to say. I have never heard (or seen) SVS subwoofers before I joined this forum, but it seems like a vast majority of members own them. I recently got one of those "wild hairs" (you all know what I mean) and ordered a REL Storm III sub (to go with another wild hair I got when I bought the Vienna Acoustics Bachs and Haydns...love them. Have not received it yet...my question is: Do I have MMTS (more money than sense) with regards to the REL and should I cancel the order and get a SVS (although I think they are really ugly or perhaps "not that attractive" would be a more polite term). Power is ADCOM 7500 with a Denon AVD 2000 (no dedicated preamp). Music/HT: 30/70 mix. I have a DefTech 15" now (the one with the 325 watt amp..15TL?), but was intrigued by the low and high level input features of the REL and the corresponding reported effect of overall improvement in my VA speakers. Any and all comments would be appreciated. Incidentally, Katherine at Sumkimoaudio.com (the importer of REL, VA, and other products) is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with (plus, I KNOW WHERE HER PARENTS LIVE...about 45 miles away from me even though she now lives in Berzerkly, CA).
