  1. Placement depends on the user. Some put the sub in a certain location due to room constraints, WAF, or for looks. Others spend a good amount of time in finding the ideal location. If your crossovers are set at 80 then only the sub is the source for the lower end. The KLF and + are probably crossing over between 65 and 90. But the lower end should be the +. Is the sub a PC+ built in amp or a CS+ external amp? Scott
  2. NatGun, Interesting perspective of SACD vs DVD-a and HD DVD vs blue-ray. I am a big fan of the SACD/DVDa/dual disc. The sound is so much better, in most cases, than the conventional CD. The big problem is too many choices and proprietary software formats. So now we have CD/DVD/DVDa/SACD/HDCD/HD DVD/Blue-Ray/Dual Disc Too many formats, too many units required to play the different formats, not enough time for the average consumer to understand the difference, shopping for the correct format may not be one stop shopping, retailers would most likely be reluctant to dedicate shelf space to so many formats, if the shelf space was dedicate retailers most likely would only carry the newest of the new releases. I say pump up the quality of the feature presentation and move the extra to another disc. The better solution would be to pick CD, DVD, DVDA, HD DVD and start pumping out a universal player.
  3. I feel it is too early to define any winner in the format war. The driving factor will ultimately be what format can supply the most cost effective product to the consumer. Early adopters will be the gadgeteers. One keey issue will be if one format supports analog outputs and if the other doesn't. I don't think the average consumer is willing to pay $500 for a HD DVD player when they can pick up a $30 dvd player at Wally World. If the industry can pump out decent HDTVs for $800 and HD DVD players that are backward compatible for $200 the avaerage consumer would be more apt to make the plunge. PS3. If Sony had released it earlier I would have considered it. But Xbox 360 has made in roads into my entertainment system. with the rumors of a price cut it leads me to believe there is a newer version of the 360 in the works. If the 360 can be hacked like the xbox and if it incorporates an HD DVD drive, there will be 2 new 360s in my house, replacing my current 360 and my dvd player upstairs. My prediction: Xbox with HD DVD, Halo 3 on HD DVD supporting analog TV and up to 1080p released a month before the PS3. Sony is just a little to late to the game console market this time and from the looks or it they are running a little late to the HD format market. It is not always about having the best product but getting the product to the market place and marketing the hell of it.
  4. Absolutely, the pB10 is a great little sub. Having had both I offer you my 2 cents. Even though the PB10 will keep up, now we are just talkig about the svs offerings, I feel the isd is a better match than the PB10, the + model would be a great match and the Ultra would be the perfect match. if the budget limits what you can spend on a sub it is a great choice. If there is any flexibility, any 12 inch woofer would be a better match. Scott
  5. If you are really interested in the Parasound A52 I am selling one for $1300 Scott

    SVS subs

    I have had various models of SV Subs. My favorite is the PC Ultra (cylinder) which fits in my room nicely. The music reproduction in this model far exceeds the previous Plus and PCi models. With that said, there are a few posts in other forums that the Plus line has a ecently updaed driver which is supposedly giving the Ultra a run for its money. Not 100% sure on this but if you pop onto there website and drop them an email, I am sure hey will recommend the RIGHT product for you.
  7. Yeah I believe in ghosts. This is the only way I can explain how my money disappears so quickly. Go to bed a rich man - wake up a poor working slob. Scott
  8. Let your concerns be heard. Tell your lawmakers you want your grapes.... Finally Massachusetts lifted its Ban. Someone must of slipped the bill in there when Ted Kennedy was taking a power nap. http://www.freethegrapes.org/
  9. The RB75 is quite a speaker. Not sure how Klipsch was able to get the sound and performance out of these speakers but I am sure enjoying it. Toe in or Toe out it makes no difference. The sound is spread across the sound stage evenly and with amazing sound. When I had the RF7s up front I was also running a pair of RB75s as surrounds. After going from Klipsch to rockets and back to Klipsch I opted to go with RB75 upfront and boy am I glad I did. I loved the RF7s but I was getting headaches listening to them/ I love the way the system sounds for both music and theater. The 75 are a smoother in than the 7s and in my smallish theater they are a perfect compliment to the room. Having had the RF3, RF7 and now the RB75 and looking at the new line up it is a shame the 75 did not get the attention that it deserves. Amazing speaker in such a small package. Scott
  10. I would trust FEDEX or UPS more than I would the Navy contracted movers. Been there, done that and got the stretch marks to prove it.
  11. Too little too late, oh well
  12. There is a post over on the Hometheaterspot in the SVS forum that discusses these two subs. http://www.hometheaterspot.com/htsthreads/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/786236/an/0/page/0#Post786236
  13. Today was play day. One of my friends from work came over to return a sub he was borrowing. He was kind enough to bring the Eagles Farewell tour dvd that he just picked up for his wife's birthday for me to sample. i felt kinda bad openning his wifes birthday gift before she actually got it. Well, that quickly passed. I popped the dvd in and the first thing I noticed was the video quality was actually very very good. The music started and I was extremely impressed with the sound quality of the DVD. The channel seperation is incredible. Wow. Of course I played it as, yeah whatever I am used to it. I have to say the Klipsch were simply fabulous. The detail or the small instruments was simply amazing. The sound of the violin, keyboard, cymbals, guitars and voices were great. My friend had borrowed it from another co-worker and he was coming back from buying it as stated above. He said he just had to hear it on my system. He was in AWE at how alive the recording sounded, the detail of the background instruments and how at even low to moderate volumes the Klipsch still pushed out the detail of the recording. all I can say is I am so happy I came back. Scott
  14. What i found, there were many great sounding speakers but none that came close to the livliness of Klipsch. That is what I missed most about the Klipsch. Now, I sit back and enjoy. Occassionaly I kick myself for buying, selling and rebuying but sometimes one must learn the hard way. Scott
