    As the header states I want to but one or the other tonight. I'm tired of waiting and decided on one of these two.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks [​IMG]

    I just got the Velodyne CHT120 last weekend and I love it (except for the cheesy rubber feet). I had the CT100 for several weeks (which I liked), but it went kaput. So I returned it and ended up with the 120. It's been doing well for both HT and music. I think it's a good performer for the price point.
    Don't know much about the Adire Dharma, though.

    I have the very first Dharman off the production line here in Tampa and I am passing it around to locals here for auditions. Everyone that has borrowed it for a trial has purchased it.
    How's that for a testamonial? [​IMG]

    Go for the CT 120. Or CT150. The 150 can be had from www.onecall.com for $500.00. That is a steal. They should be on clearance as they are being replaced by the identical CHT series. Pamela is right about the feet. Really cheap for such a good sub. Tom Nousaine said it was as clean as any sub down to 20 hz as he had seen.

    Dharman. It's pretty easy to build a DIY sub that will easily best any retail sub that costs as much as the parts for the DIY did (I may be out on a little bit of a limb there, but I quite confident that limb won't break). The Dharma uses the parts most DIYers use. The beautiful part is, Adire is selling it built (in a great looking well finished cabinet, real wood no less, not laminate) for only marginally more than it would cost you in parts.

    If you hadn't just decided, I'd have said the Dharman!
    Mike,
    When will you be doing another local area meet in Tampa?
