Lo all,

Well it's finally arrived :D Like many of you, who had ordered your Servo 15 from RS latest batch it turned up today, giving the delivery guy a mild hernia in the process.

After getting my brother-in-law round to help me shift it upstairs into the cinema room and after minimal setup (I just couldn't wait!) I got some demos a rolling :) First of all Titan AE. The ice field scene. This was just awesome! LFE I'd never heard before just leapt at me with control as tight as a gnats chuff!! How's does a cone that big move so quickly? I could just watch it for hours :D Next I tried the lobby scene from The Matrix, again quite literally it blew me away. One of the bits that made me smile no end was the scene after the lobby where Neo comes into view holding the Gattling gun on the helicopter. When he presses the trigger the thud as each shot is fired is outstanding. The Servo 15 is just so damned quick each shot from the gun is completely distinguishable and the thuds tight and deep. After this was the Pod Race scene from SW EP1. I like this scene as there's so much audio going on, it can sound really messy if your systems not set up right. Again the Servo 15 just did its stuff. It seems to do it so effortlessly it's just a joy to listen to. The sound of the Pod racers as they whoosh by was just taken to another level. The Pod that makes the "Dagga dagga dagga" (sorry about the crap description it's the only way I could think of describing it :D ) noise as it goes by was so deep and crisp it was like somebody had replaced the soundtrack.

So all in all to say I'm happy is the understatement of the decade. It's was quite funny to watch my wife rolling her eyes as I grinned like a schoolboy when watching that lobby scene, I swear she thinks I'm mad. But even she was grinning when I put a test tone through it and made all the pictures on the walls move :D

I'd just like to say thanks to Nick Rhodes who reassured me about the Servo 15 and helped me keep the faith :) Nick thanks a lot and if you’re ever round these parts there's beer waiting for you here.

Cheers

Dave

PS Couldn't get over the size of the thing! It's quite imposing to say the least and the finish is superb. It made me think of how big an HGS-18 must be, scary stuff!!!

I have just obtained an additional 2 to run with my existing 2 (one for each corner) and if i could/had the room i would have another 5, 1 for each channel and 2 for lfe.

how deep does the servo 15 go?

basically flat to about 14 Hz by all accounts and these are real Hz not a MJA Hz. It also does it at high levels and low distortion.

Out of interest...how do you pronounce Paradigm?

Is it (Para-dig-um) or something else?...Never been sure...

A bit like the Loewe brand (loo-va)
