Question (Bose Cinemate 120) Vs (SVS PB1000 + Pioneer SP-PK52FS Andrew Jones 5.0)

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post so pardon me if I sound like a noob.
I have the bose cinemate 120. I liked them in the beginning but now I want more surround sound plus the subwoofer is not a true subwoofer as I can hear dialogues through it many times.
I am thinking of selling it and buying (SVS PB1000 + Pioneer SP-PK52FS Andrew Jones 5.0) and Sony (STRDH550 5.2 Channel 4K AV Receiver).

1)Has anyone compared these two setups personally?
2)Will I get better sound while watching movies?
3)Is this receiever good enough for these speakers and subwoofer?

Thank you in advance.

That would be a HUGE upgrade from the Bose system in every way. I would suggest looking at Accessories4less.com for a receiver in your price range rather than the Sony as they are not known for stellar performance.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

You will not believe how much of a upgrade it will be.

My room is quite small and that is the reason I bought Bose Cinemate 120 at the first place.
Any suggestion for small room as these 5.0 speakers are too big. At the same time I don't want to compromise sound at all...

There is not much in your price range for decent speakers. those Pioneers are about as good as it gets.
If your budget allows these Chane speakers would be very nice as well and a step up from the Pioneers.

Re: SVS PB1000 and SB1000 Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

Hi Guys,

I have found this great review of the SB1000 in my search for a new HT sub.

Currently I have a Velodyne Optimum 12 inch (SPL-1200 Ultra) wich gives me enough output, put the bass seems too be boomy and sloppy for my taste. So I have thought about getting dual SB1000 for better coverage of the room and a tighter/faster bass.

I know I might loose the "chest pounding feeling" when watching movies, but I find myself listening to music more often than ealier and the Optimum simply is'nt tight/fast enough for music.

My HT setup is:
Marantz SR7008
MK Sound LCR 950
Velodyne Optimum 12"

Would you say that dual SB1000 would deliver tighter/faster bass than my Velodyne?

Thanks in advance

Regards
Martin

The SPL-1200 Ultra is not often thought of as an underachiever, so it's a bit surprising to hear you say that. Has it been tuned and optimized? Have you had an opportunity to try different locations? Bass can be a bit finicky so perhaps there's something you can do with the current unit to make it perform up to your satisfaction.

Only you can answer that question I'm afraid - the best any of us can do is give general advise and suggestions. We would need a lot more information before anyone can really assist though. Things like budget, usage (HT, music, gaming), listening habits (loud, quiet), room size (HxWxD), current speakers, physical size and/or WAF restrictions, etc.
