Been awhile since anybody posted in this thread considering the redesign of the scs/sbs/sss speakers into the new 02 models. So any problems, longer term observations or anything positive to say about these speakers?

Been over 2 years and still loving my speakers. I use them on a daily basis for gaming, movies, and music. Literally almost everyday they're being used. I almost forgot my tv had built in speakers haha.

Still very happy with mine! I work too much to watch a lot of TV or movies, but when I do, I am still impressed with the speakers and sub. My long-awaited upgrade is many steps above what I had, and I have to say that I still liked the old system until I heard this...

Nothing bad to say about them... The more I hear other peoples home theaters the more I like these. I do have the upgrade bug but I don't see my SCSs getting replaced anytime soon. I do know what I am looking for in a replacement to these. Mostly in the mid-bass. Now don't take this the wrong way these do sound really good. But in my room I feel I have a null I can't really fill with these around where these roll off and my PB12 picks up the lows. And really I think the STSs would be more then enough to fill my small void I have with these speakers. But this issue is so some minor no one seems to notice (even when I try to point it out) but me when I want to get really overly picky. I think once I am ready to upgrade it will be for towers. Unless I can find something like these with bigger drivers or bigger box or maybe a ported design. Just something that can play a bit louder a little lower. I've been keeping my eye on both the Aperion Audio Grand Versus and the KEF new Q's to give you an idea. But I haven't had any luck getting to hear either yet.

Same thing here! No intentions whatsoever to upgrade my current 7.1 setup, which I'm pretty happy with ( 3 x SCS-01 + 4 x SBS-01 + 1 x PB-10 )

Hi guys. Just a bit of an update. Knowing the Star Wars Blu~rays were coming out on Friday I decided to move my sub a bit and rerun Audessey. I also decided that with these movies I would watch them at reference level per my receiver. There isn't much more to say then WOW! Although I am still wanting more out of my room these SVS's definitely don't disappoint when it comes to movies.

Hi guys,

I know this is a old thread but I'm hoping some of the SVS owners here have experience with both SBS-01 and SCS-02. I'm just wondering if it's worth the upgrade to replace the front 3 (SBS-01 LR and SCS-01 center) with 3 SCS-02 or if it's not a big difference, just replace the LR SCS-02 and keep the SCS-01 center?

I currently have SBS-01 x4/SCS-01 Center with PB10-NSD subwoofer.

Do you guys think it would be that much of an upgrade? I really enjoy my SVS speakers but I have upgradeitis and although I am considering other brands such as Arx to replace front 3, I would like to hear what SVS owners would compare SBS-01 to the newer SCS-02...

Thanks!

Buy my awesome gear so I can buy more awesome gear! ...please...

For a while I had SCS-02 for fronts and surrounds with a SCS-01 as the center and I could definitely tell a difference. I would recommend keeping at least the front 3 the same.

I can't speak to the -02's, which I'm sure are better than the -01's, but replacing the SBS with SCS will make a VERY noticeable difference. I'd get three SCS-02's for the front and move the SCS-01 to a surround and get another SCS for the other surround. Maybe SVS has an old SCS-01 they can sell you to match the surround. This is a def. upgrade and will make you very happy.

Hate to bring an old thread back from the dead but does anyone have some S-Series speakers they want to sell. I am looking for SCS or SSS or even STS. But really anything from the series.

I still have 4x SBS-01 on surround duty. Sounding good and with the metal grills they also look good. LCR is STS.2xSCS.STS all with metal grills + PC-2000.

(1) I think the group title is maybe confusing because it mentions sbs-01 which came out, what 10 years ago? I would rather it say "SVS Speakers Owners Thread"

I bought prime black BS and Prime black Sats for 5.1.1 I then ordered the WHITE ULtra BS and Ultra white Sats. (So at this point I have two sets). After comparison, I didn't think the Sats were $500 better than the Boston acoustics I had already. (Sats not as important as fronts IMO). I sent back the black Prime and kept the white Ultra BS only because of the color. (I was going to have to paint the Primes and re-do the cloth). At the time I did not think the Ultra BS warranted the extra $ but since then I love the Ultras. Great to have the 45 day trial and SVS was great to work with.

What I have now: two white ultra BS fronts on 4' stands beside 70" tv. I have a energy Sub from about 10 years ago that still sounds great. Last week I bought a second one for $65 on EBay!

I Then took my 4 Boston acoustic cr06's and used them for side surrounds and back surrounds for my 7.1. I have a Yamaha RX-A1050 120W receiver ($750 at Accessories4less) and a 7 channel Rotel amplifier (another great deal at $200 on eBay). Replaced all wire with 10awg and banana plugs. Only thing left is to decide if I want to replace Boston acoustic center channel. (Undecided)
