I don't want to butcher Doug's words in my quote of his, but to try and be as accurate as possible, he did say "minimal" regarding sound quality between differentiating the SB and PB lines, while "trained ear," were my words trying to summarize his. Apologies to the readers as well as SVS.
It was mentioned in that conversation that in the frequency range of popular music (40-80Hz,) the SB12-NSD would excel in accurate output delivery over the PB-1000.
The footprint of the SB lines is a huge seller with people dealing with limited space like me. BTW, I know PB12-NSD keeps coming up as a popular and well known alternative, I'd just like to mention that the PC12-NSD has a smaller footprint, and nearly exact same specifications as the PB12 model; it's just 3' tall and slightly cheaper. I was about to pull the trigger on the PB12-NSD when Doug stopped me - knowing my limited space from previous conversations - and recommended the PC12-NSD instead, along with telling me that I qualify for military discount that I had no idea of...who does that these days, seriously?
Anyway, my PC12-NSD Xmas present to myself had been waiting to be unwrapped for a while when I was on vacation in Colorado visiting family...I landed yesterday and just unboxed it getting everything properly setup today...it's a beast lol! It sits right behind my couch and I swear to God when I'm watching movies with heavy bass I'm getting a back massage the entire time lol!
