Yeahhhhh -not so fast-... .
LED indicator is not working!
I cannot see it go blue-or orange (stand by).
The sub seems to work fine otherwise. More tests to follow...
what i havent confirmed yet is if it goes to stand-by mode (orange), since... no led. I will need a wattage meter, to monitor that.
For a brand new 900euro sub, of course this is not very good!
I will contact SVS of course, but i would hate to send it back. It will cost a lot and will take a long (i am in Greece, and i bought it from europe, it is a 40kilo huge package!)
Just wanted to share it and to see if anyone had any similar experience.
I fixed-it .
It was a loose wire for the LED. PB-2000 rocks.
As an upgrade from pb-1000, the difference is obvious especially in movies.
For example the Prometheus
movie, in the start, when the spaceship hovers above, (it needs to be run too hot to see the difference, as much as +10db), the pb-1000 would max-out without really shaking the room. After a certain point of trying to turn up sub volume even more, you could see/hear that there was nothing more it could give to you. It was already maxed out.
You could of course listen to new things with pb-1000 -not hearable with ordinary speakers- you could feel a slight rambling, but not to the point you could say it is enough. Something was just missing, just before when you were about to reach climax... you wouldnt. Almost TOO close. Perhaps in a smaller room, or a different position, or lower listening volumes would reach absolute climax. But not my case.
With pb-2000 it just didnt couldn't be maxed out. As i said i did a +10 adj just for testing the sub (gonna leave it in +3 after i play a while), and i just felt no need to test it further. I was not maxed-out, plenty of headroom left, and i felt that it was more than enough, deep and loud, and i got the feeling that i was after. It was the "one".
If you are a movie guy, and not in a very small room (like a 14sq meters), i strongly suggest going for the PB-2000 instead . However notice that it is also substantially larger from pb-1000, the grill ads 5cm in front of it. I like it thought.
Any other questions, if i can answer, free to ask.
