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!

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

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...

Mine fits ok however I have experienced the grille rattling. Should be ok as I've had to remove the granite plinth, sub is now on the carpet and the grille bottom rests on the carpet so the extra damping should stop the rattling.

SVS should offer replacement grilles (MDF + cloth)

Yes that would be perfect if they would done a cloth grille...mine sticks too but is slides out eventually (not all of it) - no rattling, and the gap is clearly visible when you are in the front of the sub. And also it would be much much better if the grille could be put on the magnets. I also purchased a isolation pads (the one that came with the subs are not good as the subs almost lies on the floor and the new feet does a perfect job (they should be standard on the subs especially for the price of the sub) and they improved a sound too as it seems to me (might be a placebo effect ) . I know it might seem i am whining but for the price i paid i would expect a better attention to details on that sub...

Maybe it is just a bad grill, any chance to get replacement from dealer in your Country?

I think it is not a bad grille because i had a problems with sb12 subs too...it does fit just that the gap is more visible on the new sub than on the one i had before...it will not fall off...if i will have a problems i will contact a dealer but for now i just have to test it with audyssey to see if i will keep it the sound of two subs is fantastic... i just need to run audyssey on monday for now i am not pushing it

I love the grill design of the SB13. Mine rests on the carpet. Thought about the isolation feet but kinda feel its a waste seeing as I already have it on carpet.

Yes i think you are right since you have it on carpet. But i must say that i noticed a difference on better with the pads on hard floor...i must calibrate them both on monday to see how they sound but the difference even without the audyssey is audible...the bass is coming from the front stage and i really like it just curious what the rew will show

Do you guys use the screw in cone feet on carpet? Does it make moving the sub harder than without? ie: do they dig in like spikes or are they flexible rubber?

The isolation pads are a little more flexible as the little rubber feet but you certainly have to move it by your hands either way.

I agree with this. I have hardwood floors with area rugs and when my SW-115 was on the floor without the SubDude I purchased for it, it sounded very different than when it was set on it.

Yes there certainly is a difference as yesterday when i watched a movie on the ultra i already had (just changed the feet) and with audyssey i noticed a really different vibrating of my sofa. It was i dont know how to put it but it was gentle and defined and it was really nice and i havent feel something like that before...also the movie wasnt bass heavy at all...i guess it might have something to do with the vibrations not transmiting to the floor just directly to the listener so the very low freq. response might be more defined and heavier i dont know just guessing but something has changed and to the positive

Use one of those little square rugs, you can then frag the subwoofer without damaging the subwoofer, or having to lift it up.

Problem with heavy speakers- they don't have handles. Try lifting a 50kg speaker that is rectangular with nothing to hol onto..
