Thats a good review. Looks like its a winner of a product. Out of my legue though. I think I would spend $ on multiple subs first

Unfortunately, with any room eq, depending on your environment, the results can be varied. I recently bought a Marantz 5003 AVR that I am using as a pre-pro with outboard power amps. This has the Audyssey 6 point multi-eq I assume is similar to the new SVS unit only the bass eq will go lower. I also have an SMS-1. I wasn't particularly impressed with the results of the 6 point eq as in an effort to balance the response at the low end, they tend to cut the sub output back too much thus you don't hear much below 40hz. The SMS-1 gives me the option of increasing that REAL bottom end that in studies show our ears don't hear as well. I agree with fredk. Before you spend money on this unit, assuming you have the space, buy another sub.

Whatever eq process is used and no matter what the graphs show on the screen, I find, after spending countless hours playing around with this stuff, in the end, my ears are generally the best arbiter of sound preference .

Well, I already have my dual subs, and this EQ is going to be a fraction of the cost of those, so I'm able to justify it that way. For other people with single subs, I would probably make the same recommendation of going dual sub first. Since it'll be much cheaper for me to get this EQ than to get more matching subs, trying out this toy seems like the way to go.

Ha ha, that would be nice, but I would need to stumble into some money. It was hard enough getting the first two with the discount.

Aw c'mon. Your on a roll. Why stop now?

Just think after that you could switch to M80s all around. Anybody seeing your room would think they stumbled on the Audiophile version of Stone Henge.
