So, I just placed the order! I'm expecting a HUGE improvement over the Dayton (which isn't "bad"). The HSU is literally 5X the cost I paid for the Dayton-1200... so, I really hope it doesn't disappoint. Bring the BOOM.
I'm a fan of SVS, but I would also have gone with the VTF2.5 over the PB-1000. I think you'll be pleased.
