Hmmm, so does this mean the next time I want to review an SVS sub I should be contacting you instead of Ed? Maybe it's time I see how the PB-2000 stacks up to the LV12R...
And if you happen to stumble upon a pair of SB-2000s...

Very glad to hear the transition has gone smoothly. SVS will soon realize what it has been lacking until now... a hillbilly!

Ha... they have a bona fide country redneck hillbilly now!!!

Funny you should mention dual SB-2000's, as I have a pair I JUST got done setting up in my room for testing and came in here to grab my laptop to do some measurements.

Best audio company out there. Got their new PB13 Ultra and it's been a love affair for me with SVSound. Check out my review of the unit on the SVS website. It's the very first review done on the 13Ultra.

Already done... a full Ultra system.

I was fond of the Ultras when we reviewed them a while back, just thought they were a tad bass heavy, but I sat them down right where my Montis were sitting and using the Montis' Audyssey setting... they sound great. The bass is tamed due to equalization vs. no equalization during the speaker event. And I am dead serious when I say they sound great. My jaw dropped when I played Cassondra Wilson Strange Fruit. Joe heard them too when he came down to pick up the subs. We never tried this location during the review, but I can tell you I ain't moving them an inch. I admit I was not crazy about moving the Montis out, but I was also relieved far beyond expectations after hearing the Ultras as they are now. I will be looking forward to some of these guys who heard the Montis getting to hear the Ultras.

Congrats Sonny!!

Having known Sonnie for several years now it is not surprising that he was as open as he has been. He is really someone who I admire and look up to.

I wish him all the best for the future and hope he is a part of HTS for a long time to come.
