I turn my Heresy II Center Down to -12dB in Audyssey, from -10, so the announcers are as annoying.

If one of those b I itchs is calling the game, I disconnect the Klipsch Heresy II Center...

NO announcer then...

Hard to believe that two key injuries on defense and a punter that couldn't kick more than 30 yds blew that game. Ugh up 24-7 and lose it. Gut wrenching!! Good game though!!

Back when the PB-2000 came out I read some opinions who upgraded from 2 NSDs to 2 2000s and they said they loved it. I also remember people saying NSD lacks in midbass (this is true) but the 2000s have a bit better punch in the upper range. So I am taking it from people who actually went from NSD to 2000.

Given that, it wouldn't be even worth the return shipping hassle and expense to go from the PC12-NSD to the SVS PC2000 IMO. FWIW, that additional 100W might get you an additional 1dB of extension (notwithstanding other differences).

I still maintain that there's a larger difference between the 62 and 82 than there is between the two subwoofers. I'm not saying that the difference between the Klipsch speakers is large; rather, that the difference between the two subs will be almost vanishingly small.
it's also got a 1100w max vs. 800w. I'm just going by many various posted opinions in the weeks and months leading up to and after the release of the PB-2000. many upgraders were very happy going from NSD to 2000. As well as the frequency response chart of the PB NDS vs 2000. And the 2000 goes one hz lower to 17, and seems to have a 3db gain through much of the test. I just don't want to look back a year from now and go, well for $200 I coulda had that 2000 instead of my old NSD. I think it's worth it. And I'm going to take that risk.

Actually now that you brought that up I do remember a few who upgraded from the NSD to the 2000 were happy about the upgrade in general. They better hurry up with the release of the PC-2000 then. Usually Rapallo from new Zealand will have the new models advertised before the USA. At least they were way ahead on the SB and PB 2000 models. Might want to check there periodically in the upcoming months.http://www.rapalloav.co.nz/

I will. If I miss it, oh well. I will be happy with the NSD. If it comes out in time I have to seriously consider it at least. Maybe it won't be worth it? I don't know. I'm just gonna enjoy my current set up some more.

I was happy Auburn dialed it in after halftime and turned a 21-21 game at halftime into a 45-21 rout over Arkansas and Coach Beluga. You might remember him.

Yea there was a lot of controversy after Coach Beliema announced he was gonna coach Arkansaw and walked out right before the Rose Bowl and had the athletic director Barry Alvarez coach that game. Something obviously happened there internally. I thought the whole situation was crap. I mean who walks out on their team right before the Rose Bowl? Either that or Beliema told Alvarez of his decision to quit and go coach Arkansaw and Alvarez got mad and basically said he would coach them that game. Far as I'm concerned good riddance to Beliema lol.

Honestly I think he just wanted to be the man, and not under Barry's shadow. Coaches typically don't coach bowl games after taking offers, and the Arkansas offer was on the table so he had to act then.
Personally I can't stand him. Auburn runs a hurry up no huddle, and it gives him fits. So, what does he do? Tries to get rules changed to make no huddle illegal.
Our coach, Gus Malzahn, is a legend in Arkansas high school, and I think he's got a chip on his shoulder since Gus is looked at in Arkansas as the one that got away, and he's the second choice.
He needs to win a conference game, or he's gonna be fired.

I can get a pair of RF-82 MK1's with a 44% discount and wondering if I should go for it.

I've currently got a pair of B&W 685 S2 which I'm happy with, but they haven't got anything going for them when it comes to movies compared to the Klipsch horn. I've heard the Klipsch plenty at my mates house and I can't say that I dislike the sound. It might be a tad brighter than my B&W's, but the punch is definitely more pleasant with the Klipsch.

Not thinking of selling equipment at this point, so would be keeping both sets of speakers. Could it work to use the B&W as rear-speakers in a surround setup, or will the sound signature be too different? If not, I might just separate them into different rooms.
