Kinda Quiet Around Here...

I used to own a pair of SB1000's, but needed something significantly bigger for my large room. I loved those little subs and wish that they were big enough, but alas...

I currently own a pair of Ultra Bookshelf speakers and absolutely love them. I'm fairly new to hifi and they are the best speakers I've owned. I got them in the outlet for 399 apiece and really lucked out with cosmetic damage. There is one very, very tiny chip one one corner of each. I had to get a bright led on them to even see it.

There was a time when I would never have considered spending more than a couple hundred dollars on a pair of speakers. I do not regret purchasing the Ultras whatsoever.

For those interested, some speaker porn!

Nice ! I really like the sound of the Ultra's. I myself only have SVS subs ( my speakers are Martin Logan ) - two PC12+ subs -

"Only" the subs. lol. Those are some very nice subs. I like the look and they're easier to place sometimes. Those look like great spots right behind your seating position.I'll bet they pound when you want them to.

I am a big fan of SVS products. I currently have the sb16 ultra and 2 prime bookshelves in my setup. I am wondering how much of an upgrade the ultras are over the primes. Any body trade up?

I've never listened to the Primes, but according to reviews I've seen it's a pretty significant upgrade.

I'm definitely a fan of SVS. I just bought a third Ultra for my center channel. I'd love to own a pair of PB16 Ultras, but it's just not in my budget. I ended up with a pair of Hsu VTF-3 MK5's for my bass.
