I was hoping to get some real world feedback from any/all who have or have extensively used this sub. I have recently purchased one but have yet to install it as i am considering going larger to suit a large room. I am also considering purchasing a second. does the performance really match the hype? thanks:)

No the hype matches the perfomance. They were rather expensive in America.

I have read posts from owners only this week saying the Servo 15 kills Velo DD18s on almost everything that matters.

Downside is they are considered rather big and ugly. Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder.

Hi There,

Paradigm Reference Servo 15 v.3
£1749 inc VAT
Up a touch on what i paid from RS for my 15a then :eek:

Is there really £1150 worth of improvement ???

Oh and the review said 150w, i swear my old one is 400w ???

Hmmm...think i'll keep looking for a second hand one and dual them...don't care about looks as it will sit the other side of my centre behind an acoustic screen with the other one :D

cya,
Lee

There were two Servo-15 models, the Reference v3 Servo (£1,750) and the Reference Signature (£2,750!). Unforunately Paradigm wasted everybody's time and money by never actually delivering on a promised 230v model of the Servo. Eventually their distributor pulled out so Paradigm is no longer officially available in the UK again I'm afraid. Not sure why that page is still on our-site, shouldn't be!

Hi Liam,

I don't know which is worse, the price tag, or the now lack of price tag. Did you ever hear one ???

Do you think that while being a bargain of the century the cheap price from RS undersold the Servo and as such has neigh on killed the chance of a Servo15 update, because most people who bought it at 5-600 would not jump up to 1750 let alone 2750 and most high end people would see the tarnish that the earlier and probably not that much different one was so much cheaper ?

Cya,
Lee

From my dealings with Paradigm, it's as if they simply do not care about the UK. It would have represented about 5% of their total business if it had been successful, they just didn't seem to want to bother putting in the effort. They didn't mind shipping out speakers, but converting subs to 230v etc they never did and the UK distributor put in all the effort for a website and promo material etc. So I wouldn't hold out much hope for an update available this side of the pond.

Never heard one of the offical ones, just the RS one a couple years ago.

Where did you read that nimby? Having owned a brace of servos and now a dd-18 i can say hand on heart, no the servo-15 is not as good. Show me anyone who'd swap a DD-18 for one of the original servo 15a and I'll eat my hat :)

That said, the servo 15 is a superb sub...in fact im sitting next to one right now :)

I am not at all sure i would swap mine (4) for a single DD18 i am afraid to say.
Let the hat eating begin.
