    Hi.

    Sorry to bore everyone with yet another sub review but after looking up and down I've been offered the Yamaha ystsw800 Sub.

    <br />Any users on the Yamaha ystsw800 Sub?

    Any views greatly appreciated.

    It's reviewed in the October issue of What HiFi. They were unable to fault it and gave it 5 stars.

    I have one on order from an internet company in Germany who are supplying it in cherry (not available in the UK) for £350 delivered.

    What's the Company website? I've been looking for a new sub.

    Just how good is this sub ?<br />Saw the What Hi-FI review and yes it gives it five stars but its such a small review it does not really say much about it ?<br />How low does it go ? will it perform better than my q100 ? is it worth the money ?

    There's more technical information here <a href="http://www.yamaha.co.jp/english/product/av/pdfs/moreinfo/yst_sw800.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.yamaha.co.jp/english/product/av/pdfs/moreinfo/yst_sw800.pdf</a> although it's unclear whether the power rating of 800W is RMS or not.

    Call me naive but I've bought it on the basis of the What Hi-Fi review alone so I can't really give you any more information than is available on the internet or in this months what Hi-Fi. Personally, I wouldn't upgrade to one from a REL Q100. I'd either get a second Q100 or a better REL.

    Simon, do you have to pay duty and VAT on receipt of the goods?
