Is a PB-2000 a significant upgrade from a 25-31PCi ?

I have recommended both just on the strength of reviews, and based on my faith in SVS, but I would love to hear more about either line if you try them out.
All my surrounds are Prime speakers. I've got 6 Prime Satellites running as my height and rear channels. Then I've got a pair of Prime bookshelf speakers as my side surrounds. I have been extremely happy with these speakers and in my limited testing think they would make great main speakers. Of course, they are going to require a sub for the low end. Generally speaking I like the midrange on my EMP towers more then the SVS midrange, however SVS seems to have the superior tweeter. I'm a little surprised that there hasn't been more written about the SVS speaker lineup.

Well, I ordered the prime bookshelves from the outlet today for $400 for the pair (black ash). It was zero damage.

I'm curious whether items from the outlet come from returns from the 45 day trial period solely or also from returns from the 1 year trade up or performance guarantee policies.

Does anyone know? (Just trying to determine how long my speakers were used by the previous owner.)

Thanks in advance.

I doubt that kind of info would be made public. Think of them as refurb with same warranty as new, other than that its luck of the draw I guess.

Yeah, I've gotten pretty good results with the phantom center with the Cores, provided the AVR is in 2ch stereo mode. Straight mode makes dialogue too quiet and harder to understand unless you crank it and then peaks are too loud.

Understand, I suppose I'm just a bit nervous/paranoid about buying anything that isn't brand new sealed. But the $100 saved was worth it for an item in perfect condition.

Im thinking of getting the prime svs towers, but im reading very good things on the svs prime bookshelves and even better reviews on the ultra bookshelves. This is making think twice on what i should get to supplement my svs satelites i will be running as surrounds and atmos height speakers. Oh and my foundation is an svs pb2000 sub, man that thing moves air, felt my pants leg moving more than a few times watching movies, Pretty cool!!!

Anyone have any idea whether SVS still ships free to Canada?

I don't know if this is true or not, but I have read that manufacturers sometimes over-produce for the holiday season, and then put brand new items in an outlet, or sell them to someone like accessories4less, in order to not devalue the base price. If that is true, you may very well have gotten something that was neither damaged nor pre-owned.
