This is my first post on the subwoofer forum, although I've been a long time lurker. I just received my new PC12-NSD Monday and managed to get it set up yesterday. My last sub was the PB10-ISD and it has always done a very good job in my room, which is only 12 x 10 x 10. You all know how it is though, you can never have enough quality bass so I recently got the fever to upgrade.
I watched Master and Commander
on blu and even though my PB10 did excellent work with this film, watching it with the PC12 was an unreal experience. Like I said, the PB10 certainly impressed me with its performance, but the PC12 just took things to a new level. This was only the second time I'd watched this but it did everything my old sub did, just with much more authority and with seemingly no effort. The entire room was pressurized and the cannon fire hit so hard, it was unbelievable.
I only have had time to watch one other movie so I watched Fellowship of the Ring
: EE. I decided on that because I have seen it numerous times and am very familiar with the sound. Again, it did everything my former sub did but just so much better. Of course, anyone familiar with the PB10 knows that this is not faint praise. It was almost like watching the film for the first time and I can hardly wait to rediscover many of my other films. I'm just glad that I live far enough away from my neighbors that I can crank it up and really enjoy it.
I'm planning to dig into some music a little later and see how it does with some Bach organ pieces and maybe a little metal too. That should make for some interesting listening.
In closing, I must say I couldn't be happier with the performance of my new PC12-NSD. I wasn't sure how great a difference I would experience since I was coming from a quality sub. Well, let me assure you that the difference was quite dramatic for me and I almost can't quit grinning just thinking about it. I realize that I have a very small room and that certainly makes a difference, but I would definitely say the PC12-NSD more than lives up to the hype. That said, I'm almost disappointed that my latest purchases are The Seventh Seal
and Dr. Strangelove
on blu (only because they won't really utilize my sub
). Thank you so much SVS.
