I also brought this music to this year’s audio show and David was gracious enough to let me test it on his DSS 24” Mariana. So it’s not like I evaluated one PSA sub only vs. the Ultra. I’ve also listened to (but not auditioned with my test music) the JL Audio Gotham G213, auditioned their Fathom F212, and the Paradigm Sub 1 (but again, not with my test music, but spent several hours critically listening). Yes, it’s still one man’s opinion, but I thought I’d set the record straight.

That difference may or may not be rather small, but I've found a difference nonetheless.
Looks like I struck a nerve which wasn't the intent, just pointing out we all have our opinions, especially on this forum. Your not the only one who's heard a lot of subs, discussed them with other forum members or had them in their home, no need to list your history as your opinion was already respected at least by me be it subs or some other AV equipment . We just disagree on this one (sort of maybe) and I will skip my laundry list.

As for the Rythmik 12" besting the Ultra no way.

Actually, I hold the same respect for you and your posts. I always enjoy them. That’s the reason I wanted to explain that it wasn’t one PSA sub vs. one SVS. I apologize if my post sounded other than what I intended.
