    Quick review

    Ok folk - I received my Velodyne CHT-10R sub last Friday…when I got back home (I actually left work 20 minutes early - couldn't wait any longer!!) there was a decent size parcel in the hallway…I quickly grabbed a coffee and a quick chat with my girlfriend then went to the front room…
    Well, first off, the build quality is spot on, the front looks real classy too!

    I then just left the sub in the middle of the room and plugged it in - even with the 'out of the box' setting, the sound was pure quality - no doubt about that..! The sound was clear and deep…I went through some of the usual test scenes that I know well…

    Ok - this is my first real decent sub after previously owning Eltax sub - obviously there was a big step up from this, but where the eltax really disapoints was with music, so, I then setup the Velodyne with my Nad c350 - wow, this (for me) is where the velodyne excelled itself - the sound just blew me away - now, the kef Q4s I have are amazing little speakers - if a bit light on the bass, but their clarity and soundstage is awesome, so, having the velodyne as well…well, its some combination…I played a variety of CDs, but when I played Blur's '13' - some of the tracks on there literally had me glued to the chair!
    I didn't need top have the stereo on that loud for it to be effective either…needless to say, I staggered to bed around 2:30 am with a massive grin on my face!!

    Cheers again
