Sorry I cant stop grinning like the cat thats just got the cream No, STOP!!! Okay I'm over it now. You see, I got my 850 this weekend and to say that I'm pleased is an understatement. But having got it now, I was reflecting on how I arrived at where I am and I was wondering how all you other bass-aholics arrived at the 'end of the rainbow' as it were. So I have a couple of questions for all bass-aholics: 1. What have you've got that has killed all urges to upgrade? 2. How long has you journey been - ie what did you buy along the way to get to the end of the road? 3. How much did your journey cost. My answers to the questions are as follows: 1. ASW850 2. I started about a year and half ago. First off was when I got my plasma and I bought a cheapo one box solution from Curry's for £90 But compared to what I was used too, it was a revelation (okay, dont laugh). Then I thought okay that was brill, but after 3 months I wanted more. So next stop was another one box solution, this time from Sony. That was £300 and again I thought I was there But I noticed to get anything I had to max it out all the time. Next was the vibe Zeta. Again a massive improvement, but over time you begin to get a feeling (almost a preminition) that all is not well. That 'mistake' cost me dearly and I thought I could add more to the sound by getting another one But it didn't help one bit. Then after coming across this forum I toyed with the idea of a SVS but didn't fancy the import route. Finally I narrowed things down to the PV1, 750 and of course the 850. My reason for getting the 850 was as I said before, to stop any upgrade-itis urges. And boy am I happy. Not only am I pleased that I've got a product second to none, but there is something good knowing that you are in a very select company with the best on offer on the planet!! 3. Total cost to end my journey: Currys one box offer £90+ Sony offering £300+ Vibe Zeta £600+ Second Vibe Zeta £300+ ASW850 £1900 Total price to reach sub heaven =£2890 (I hope my missus dosen't read this thread ) Of course you may still be on your personal journey, so if your are, where would you like it to end?
