    Too bad you couldn't stuff an SVS in the fireplace

  • So after going back and forth, finally pulled the trigger over cyber Monday and bought a PC-4000 for $1499. Couldn't pass up on that price. I wanted to go with the PC for the smaller foot print compared to the PB. When I finally was able to unbox it, all I can say is WOW this thing is big, like support column big lol I'm glad I measured my available space before getting it. Now just trying to dial everything in. For someone who has been into a/v for over 2 decades, and who has spent thousands of dollars on it, I know very little as far as EQ and doing it myself outside of Auto EQ like Onkyo's AccuEQ. Wish I knew more people locally that were into things like this, I would be more then happy to pay someone to help me dial things in ha

    Orange County, CA. Seems most A/V guys are on the east coast. I do randomly run into people local though, from time to time

    Best tips are what you like to hear. Im running a pair of cylinder SVS units. One is the 20-30 PCi and the a PC-2000. I just played with them back n forth music and DVD Til it felt and sounded good. Your ears will tell ya. Gotta go with the gut punch.

    I received my SVS SB4000 today and set it up in my mancave system... My back and my math aptitude tell me that this is twice the sub that the SB2000 is :D .

    I am running it through it's initial paces and breaking it in but my first impressions are over all very good. Deep, refined and manageable.

    I didn't use anywhere near as much foul language as I did setting up my PB16 Ultra with all the settings being on a digital front panel as opposed to the rear PB16 controls.

    I'm doing a couple of upgrades to this rig this week adding a 12VDC linear power supply to my DAC and adding a Marantz AV7704 to replace the AVR (SR5011) I've been using in this rig. In the future I will probably re- swizzle the amps around in this rig either consolidating to a 5 channel A51 or A52+ or just by adding an A31 to handle the fronts and keeping an A23 for rear duty.

    As it is, it's really an impressive little system using the P5's H/T bypass for 2 channel and the SR5011 as a HT... I mean I could even upgrade the fronts to a pair of Usher Mini 2 DMD's but really no hurry there if I could find a pair at a deal I could feel...
