I was on vacation when the Big Brown Truck came on Tuesday, so I had to wait until today to pick up my SVS PC+ 20-39. I went ahead and got that one after reading so many reviews and getting feedback from people here. I saw the box and had a hard time breathing "What will my wife say?" kept running through my mind. I took it home and had her help me unload it. She said "it's awfully big" but really didn't say much else, until i took it out of the box. "Oh my god, it's huge!" she says. Uh-oh, does this mean trouble? I wired it up and tucked it away in the corner. "Hey" she says, "that doesn't look so bad now." I stopped sweating just a little bit. So I fired it up, running through my Onkyo TXSR600 receiver and HT500 speakers, set the gain at about 1/2, the volume adjust to -5db on the receiver (per the starting point recommendations) and plopped The Matrix into my brand new Sony DVD changer (also came in the mail today). I don't have an SPL meter (going to get one) so it wasn't calibrated by any means, but I turned it up about 10 notches higher on the receiver than I've ever listened to the movie. WOW! HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, HOLY WOW! I played the scenes outlined in the book as well as the "Lobby Shoot-up" scene. It was a scream. And the best part of all, MY WIFE LOVED IT! There's bass there that I didn't even know about, and the bass that is there is 100X cleaner and smoother. I can't wait to calibrate everything and then see how it plays. I also watched jurassic park, but I only have that on a very old VHS, and the sound quality is sub-par, but wow, it sounds awesome. I have about $2200 in my system now (receiver, speakers, sub, and DVD player). Do the $10k+ systems really sound that much better? I can't imagine it. I've never been to a movie theater that sounds as good as my home theater now sounds. Brian [email protected] P.S. The best news of all, my insurance company picked up the tab after my old sub was hit by lightning!
