    Hello fellow SVS lovers! I've been thinking that one of the things that keeps people from buying SVS is the desire to see/hear one first, so I created a web site that automates the process of matching would-be buyers to current SVS owners who are willing to offer an in-home audition. The URL is:
    http://www.audioenvy.com/
    Basically how it works is that current owners register with the site and provide the city, state, and zip code where they live and what SVS products they own. When someone wants an audition, the Web site does a bit of geographic matching to return a list of potential owners. It's done in a way to maintain the owner's privacy--more info on that is at the site itself.
    HERE'S THE CATCH: The site doesn't do anybody any good unless there are SVS owners who register as being willing to allow auditions, so I'm asking--begging--you SVS lovers to sign up and help out the SVS cause!
    The site is still a work in progress, but the basic functionality is there and it's to the point where it needs some people to sign up so I can test it out. The more people who sign up, the more effective the site will be at helping would-be SVS owners take the plunge.
    Feedback is welcome here or via email.
    And oh yeah, the site is free and is unaffiliated with SVS. Just a lowly programmer working out his frustrations...

    Nice idea Steve. I think it has the potential to work. My problem is I would be worried about someone checking out my equipment for a future break in. I'm just naturally paranoid I guess.

    Hey Nick, you're right down the road from me. I'm in Elsmere, KY. 2 questions: What hours do you work and what's your address?[​IMG]
    Thanks for this resource Steve, I'm all signed up.

    Steve -
    I signed up to host demos and then the next day I got an e-mail from [email protected] Is this normal? Is this an actual request?

    Jeff, that's a request from someone apparently trying to test the system to see if it works. I'm working on a way to minimize the number of "bogus" requests, but in this case it was likely someone trying to see if the system is up and running.

    This is a great idea, I was surprised to see that someone in my state (Kansas) is registered with a cs+. Sure it would be a 2.5 hour road trip, but it's still worth considering. Hopefully more owners jump on board.

    Great idea Steve. The SVS guys should post a link to your site on their site. It must have been a lot of work to set that registry up, and will help their business immensely.
