    want a sub to complement my newly acquired Focal speakers (see sig). Impressed by the Mordaunt Short 909 sub at work (bit too big tho), as well as the Yamaha YSTSW1500, as they seem to dig low enough to make a difference but the MS seems more subtle and detailed.

    Not blown away by the MJ Ref100- certainly didn't go low enough to make a difference and the Ref 1 was pretty good but port noise was surprisingly noticeable.

    If anyones compared any of those, + some other competitors e.g. some RELs that would be useful. Budgets around £500-600

    Sub would ONLY be for music (despite my av amp and speakers, watch one movie every 4 months!) and run off the left and right preouts of my stereo amp so it needs stereo inputs. Musical tastes vary from jazz to hiphop, but i would love a nice clean low end with oodles of detail and no boominess at all :D

    Thanks

    If you have the space for one I would suggest the same as Nimby. Simply unbeatable at the price

    Take a look at BK electronics.

    They are knocking the Ruark Log Rhythm out for £250 and its a very musical sub according to Hifi Choice who rated it with 5 stars and that was at the normal retail price of £800 so its a bargain at that price.

    Don't know whether they have any left though as it states that they have very limited stocks.
