I couldnít believe it when I won these speakers on Home Theater Shack, and Thank you and SVSOUND for this great prize. I canít believe I was lucky enough to win these. I had a Yamaha speaker system, and these make a great update. I will be using these with a Sony 5.1 channel receiver until I update to a better receiver.
These speakers in my home theater are driven by a Sony STR-K840P receiver Hooked up to a Phillips DVD player and to a Comcast HD cable box.
Packaging and Delivery
I was surprised when UPS showed up at my door. They had 7 boxes. They came in good shape and I am happy with the packing. It looks like they shipped them out on the February 23rd and I received them the next day on the 24th. Very fast shipping and all the items were shipped with care.
Setting up the AS-EQ1
Setting up the AS-EQ1 wasn't that difficult. I placed a CD into my laptop and hooked it up to my laptop, and set it up to my liking. The computer interface was easy to use. It took a few tries until I found the sound I like. It Improves the sound of the subs greatly. The AS-EQ1 is a must have!
The SB12-NSD gives great bass without the AS-EQ1, but the AS-EQ1 brings the subs to life with better detail since you can set it up for your room type. The STS-02 towers have great looks as well as great sound. The SCS-02 center speaker gives great center channel sound with it's 3 drivers. One tweeter and two mid drivers. The rear surround are model SSS-02 and have two mid drivers and two tweeters. All of the tweeters are liquid cooled and give out great sound. I am extremely happy with all of them. Great clean sound all around.
The SVS speakers put me in ah. The first time I turned my system on with the Sony receiver I just thought and I am so lucky to have these. They put my old Yamaha speakers to shame. I thought my Yamaha speakers were good speakers. The sound is so clean and they make Dolby digital sound great. I even tried the stereo in two channel stereo mode with subwoofers and the sound is so wonderful. I never heard any speakers sound this good, but then again these are my first high end speakers. I had a friend come over to listen who has a high end set and he wanted to buy them from me. I told him mine are not for sale but he can buy a set on www.svsound.com
. The subwoofers fills the room full of base. With having two I turned down the base and it gives a clean even sound across the room.
I feel everyone would be happy with the looks and sound of SVsound. Not only do they sound good but they look awesome. The set I have has a flat black charcoal finish. Only thing I miss is them not having a real wood veneer. I like the looks of real wood. I am sure that would raise the price of these. They would look awesome in cherry or walnut. Donít get me wrong the charcoal finish is nice, but I like real wood so I am bios.
The sound of each speaker goes well with the rest of them. I like the look of the rear surround speakers. I am planning on buying the matching stands that are on SVsounds web page. They finish the look. The stands are made by Snus the top plate dimensions are 5" W x 5" D , and the base plate dimensions: 11.5" W x 10" D. The only issues I have with the stands are only sold by the pair, and if you want one for the center channel speaker you will have an extra stand you donít need. Then again, I may ask my friends who are interested and just get what I want and what they wants which would make us all happy.
The bottom line
I love these speakers. They are well worth the price. They put many speakers to shame, have good clean sound, and are very attractive. The speaker stands are a must get to finish the look. I believe most of you would be extremely happy to own a fine of a set of speakers. Go to www.svsound.com
and get your credit card out, so you can see what I am talking about. Thank you again to SVsound and thanks for listening to me. As you can tell, I am extremely happy with the speakers I won.
