Hi all , After a lot of umming and ahhing, I finally pressed the big old "Buy Now" button! Hopefully it won't be too long before a have a 25-31PC+ sitting discretely in the corner of the living room! No honestly, it should be hidden by an armchair. Big thanks to Ian J for demoing his 20-39 to me last Friday (Still got to get hold of Ice Age though!). I sent a query mail to SVS and Erik replied that they normally expect shipment to be: "From confirmation of order details (credit card verification can take a while depending on how quickly your bank responds; bank transfers go through immediately) to shipment normally takes 1-2 business days and then transit time is normally 4-8 business days", but I'm trying not to be too optimistic on this. Quote for shipping (door to door to Warwick) - $170. The comments on the Forum about SVS customer Service seem spot on as I had a very kind offer of a T-shirt just because it had taken two days to reply to my e-mail Now, I don't want to hear of anyone trying to take advantage of that kind of generosity I'll let you all know progress on its arrival as I get it (and, of course, how it sounds when it gets here ). Now I better go and start bolting down the furniture Thanks again Ian. Cheers, Ed.
