Well I'm on the verge of getting my first HT together. I was auditioning the Studio 40 and 100's when the rep asked what sub I was going to go with. I said probably something from SVS (25-31PCI or 20-39PCI) to which he replied "who?". He then proceeded to tell me that he had never heard of SVS and that the Paradigm PS-1000 or 1200 would be much better than anything they made at the same price point. He also said that if I purchased the SVS to make sure I could return it and he would allow me to bring it into his shop and he would do a side by side comparison, he was that confident (he also made this offer when I said that I would be auditioning the B&W 602/603). Has anyone actually heard BOTH the SVS and the Paradigm and what is your opinion.
