People use that one, also. I have heard that for audio, the AIX disc is the one to get.

Greetings,

It's a bit early to tell if I "hear" a difference but it's clearly different. After setup I found myself tinkering/tweaking to attain the response/blend I am accustomed to. I would say that I am pretty much there but will know for certain after spending more time listening to some reference material I am intimately familiar with.

Either way the PB-13 Ultra rocks...

Thanks.
Since the AIX disc is $50 and I already have the WOW disc I might try the WOW just to see how it compares to the YPAO settings.

I didn't fill out my info to see if I could find the shipping charge, but if you're interested its worth checking vs $50... and verify I chose the correct disc http://aixrecords.com/images/oppo_sampler_bd_cvr.jpg

Thanks, there's no charge for shipping. Also, Oppo sells the blu-ray for the same price but charges $5 for shipping. Not sure why it's $50 on Amazon.

Will be buying the Prime Bookshelf speakers and center in the next couple of weeks and trying to decide between the black ashe and the piano black. My PC-2000 has the piano black top and there's some reflection but it's not distracting. I find the piano black absolutely stunning but concerned that since they'll be about a foot on each side of the TV and the center under the TV, they may be to reflective. Anyone have a pic of either one that shows how much or little they reflect light? Thoughts?

Hi Bond,

The WOW disc is fine to use for audio calibration, so long as you remember that, for some reason beknownst only to the Disney audio mixer, all of the tones (sats & LFE) are recorded at -20dbSF. It should have been -30dbSF for the sats and -40dbSF for the LFE, which would give 75dB all around. When using the WOW tones (with DEQ and DynVOL disengaged), however, a system calibrated to reference will read 85dB for the sats, and 95dB for the LFE channel. The main thing is to calibrate so that there is a 10dB difference between the sats and LFE. Good luck!

Peace... Vader

What's the reason for this?-

This disc was shot using HD video equipment and is compatible with all blu-ray players. However, the HD-Audio, which is encoded in Dolby TrueHD cannot be played back on a Sony PS3. The legacy audio will play instead.

Are you sayings there's a difference between the $50 and $29 version?

FYI - The PS4 can play Dolby TrueHD.

I have the a gloss black CC and it's right below the TV (adjusted it down from about 3 inches from my previous posted pic) and I don't see any reflections. Since you already have the gloss black PC-2000 then matching it would be a perfect set IMO. Be sure to post up pics

That's what I'm thinking too.

I'm not saying anything. That's said on the site. PS3 can play DTHD so i'm wondering what they mean.

Well i think i am gonna start hateing this metal front grile...for the price that sb13ultra is i think everything must be perfect...dont get me wrong the sub is amazing (built like a tank) but this cheap front grile that doesent fit as it should really destroys the sub as a whole. If you step on the front of the sub and watch it down you can see the gaps and even if you push it back it will evetually slide back out... SVS should do something about CC for the front grile better yet design a whole new front grile...it does stick to the front but not as perfect as it should...
