    Hi guys, looking to add a sub to my system, for some reason I want to go for a Yamaha one 'cause it may fit with my DSP-A5 well? Also I like the "look" of the Yamaha subs. My budget is up to £150. The SW215 seems to fit the bill, I'm not looking for gut wrenching bass, just something which adds a bit more slam to movies and fills bass out on music.
    Not read any reviews but usually Yamaha subs don't get reviewed well vs the smaller niche companies. Has anyone got this or have had first hand experience?
    Thanks...PJ
    PS the DSP-A5 has single phono out to sub - is this standard?

    OK guys, is "no comment" the best I can derive from this?!

    The Ruark Vita 100 then is worth it for the extra 50 quid?

    Notice it has both high and low inputs, presume I'll only use low level single phono input?

    Thanks...PJ

    Yamaha subs aren't particularly known for sound quality whereas the Ruark Vita sub comes from a name well known in hifi circles.

    If you look at the original cost of the Vita you will find that it is well worth the price that BK Electronics are asking.

    A single phono to phono cable is the way to connect to your amp
