i am very pleased with it. s how many hours do i have to play on it be fore it starts to sound better. i love its WAY better then the pw1000.i have only listened to about 1 hour of music. so my system is at fronts: mon 7 center:cc270 rears: micros sub: pw2200 soon to be fronts:mon7 center cc370 rears: adp370 subpw2200. i dont think i will up grade to the studio series. i think this set up will last me for ever but a dual subwoofer will never hurt.
