Any comments on these speakers ?
IMHO, you'll have to spend a heck of a lot more money to do better than SVS. I have both 5.1 and 7.1 SVS systems, the 5.1 system using all SBS-02s except for the SCS-02 mid and PB12NSD sub. The 7.1 system uses the STS-02 slim towers as mains, an SCS-02 mid, SSS-02 side surrounds, SBS-02 back surrounds, and a P12NSD sub.
Both systems sound incredible. I did tweak the top end EQ on both systems from about 8K to 16K, +1.5db, for my personal taste and just to open up the top end slightly. To reiterate, both systems sound fabulous without any tweaking whatsoever, but I just like to hear the "shinnnnggg" and overtones of the acoustic guitars, mandolins, banjos, and other acoustic instruments. And I get that in spades with both systems. Like I said, just a personal preference. Both systems reproduce very
accurately and are tremendously transparent. After a month or so of listening to both systems I can't recommend SVS highly enough.
A word of warning...if you like your sound system baseline sound very colored look elsewhere. SVS is well known for producing highly accurate speakers. I prefer a speaker system with a highly accurate, transparent, and flat baseline so that I can take it from there, if necessary. That way I'll have a point of reference...a baseline for comparison. There's absolutely nothing wrong with wanting a "colored" system, one that emphasizes lows, mids, or highs to an extent. It's all personal preference. I prefer as accurate of a baseline as I can get...or afford. SVS will get you there, for much less money than most. At least that's been my experience. Just an extremely satisfied customer...no connection to SVS.
