You also get the 1 year trade up policy if purchased from SVS. It's a shame that you pay the same price from an authorized dealer as SVS charges, but the benefits are a lot better when purchasing from SVS. They should all be the same, or price adjusted accordingly. I made that mistake last year, and cannot trade up. Never again. If I do buy another SVS, it would be direct from them, but that's unlikely, unless the sting wears off.
