    After much thought and deliberation I have again fallen foul to my AV desires and taken another upgrade plunge. This time it is again the subwoofer and I have just ordered a Velodyne DD15.
    That means in the last couple of years I have gone from Mission to SVS to B&W and now to Velodyne! I'm really starting to worry that I might have some compulsive dissorder!!! :eek:
    Anyway, the DD15 is being delivered and setup by the dealer on Sauturday morning, so I will eagerly await his arrival and will let you know my thoughts.
    In the mean time, if anyone wnats a black B&W ASW750, mine is now up for grabs in the classifieds. ;)

    Well done Barry,although i havent heard one,the DD`s have to be classed as the Merc(or any other supercar you care to mention for that matter) of the sub world.What are you hooking it up to?

    Regards Dan :smashin:

    Hooking up to my Pioneer VSX-2011, Kef KHT 9000 fronts, Mission M7D surrounds and Hitachi 42PD5200 Plasma!!!
    Not the perfect high end setup, but it does my humble home!

    Sorry, I can't help with that! I'm staying with my DD-15 :D

    But it is a great sub, so you wont be dissapointed :thumbsup:

    Mark.

    ps, the piano black gloss does look excellent - as long as you don't touch it as finger prints really ruin the finish :suicide:

    Barrie, any particular reason why you went for the DD-15, the reason i ask is because most people on these forums seem to think SVS are the best subs, & i see you'v had a SVS before so why didnt you go for a better SVS sub ?

    Hee Hee I knew you couldn't resist.

    I am sure you will love it. Mine is really rumbling now and its still not set up properly. It the only sub I have heard that frightens people.

    Good Luck mate :smashin:

    I would not want a cloth dustbin again, it just wasn't pleasing on the eye, and SVS box subs are just too large.
    The Digital drive series subwoofers are very compact for the size of the driver they house, with the DD15 being only slightly larger than my ASW750.
    The THX Ultra 2 specification is just the icing on the cake.

    Hi Rip,

    SVS do make very good subs but they aren't the only company that make good subs Velodyne,B&W & M&K are just to name a few.
    SVS do well because there is alot of Bang for your $ or £ it's all down to preference and if you can afford these other subs you would not be dissapointed as they all sound bloody excellent :D

    John :)

    The beast arrived today and the wife was not a happy bunny. She thinks it's huge and I must admit it looks a little larger than I was expecting!
    However, it does look fantastic and my wife is still talking to me. :D
    Its not been properly setup yet but I've fired it up and first impressions is, oh dear this is going to cause some damage!!! :devil:
    I'll coment more when its setup properly.
    In the mean time I've posted some pics of my new DD15 in all its glory.
