    Default SVS MTS home theater speaker system


    SVS is a small but growing direct-to-Web speaker manufacturer in the unlikely location of Youngstown, Ohio. The company first earned its colors with highly affordable subwoofers that outperformed most anything in their class. But SVS has been energetically poking up into the remaining eight octaves of sound for several years now with high-value bookshelf-speaker designs.

    These speakers might be big and slightly old-school-looking, but given their powerful, superbly neutral full-range sound, who cares?



    BOTTOM LINE

    SVS�s MTS 01 system is as impressive a music system as it is a home theater one. Any value-conscious audio seekers who care more for performance than pedigree, and for great sound more than mere style, should look and listen no further.

    Full review here - http://www.soundandvisionmag.com/spe...er-system.html

    My Take - These speakers sound absolutely fantastic and anyone (without a sky is the limit budget) shopping for speakers should give these a try.

    I recently got their new subwoofer (PC12-NSD). I had previous subs that I bought for around $300 that sounded boomy and had horrible freq response (contrary to company's claim). The SVS subwoofer sounds very clean, sharp, and accurate. With respectable spl level at 20hz you actually feel the bass. Originaly I was going to buy their top of the line sub but after taking into account the room size and the performance of their "budget" subwoofer I decided to purchase the PC12-NSD ($600).

    This sub manages to easily shake my 2600 sq foot detached house. A great buy that I highly recommend.

    Glad to hear that as SVSound makes exceptional speakers and sub woofers. That will rock your world for years to come...

    Default Noob question

    Hey DD I'm on the fence with this system, got the extra money together and I'm ready to pull the trigger.. I'm a concerned with the horizontal center channel dispersion and off axis lobing being a problem, some of my seating will be outside the sweet spot. I've also been tossing around the idea of three identical fronts, I read thats ideal. Like to hear you thought on the matter..

    If those are your concerns (I don't see them as a problem with this system due to it's excellent dispersion) then I would recommend the Outlaw Audio LCR speaker system. It addresses all of your concerns and adds better flexibility for speaker placement and sound stage than any other speaker currently available.

    I'm really leaning toward the MTS system, I like the idea of mounting the rears on the wall with the omni mount which is necessary for my space,not to mention the ultra sub!! my room being only 13' wide the off axis seating is not to far from center. I can always send them back if I'm not satisfied. If you had to choose between the two which way would you go? As always DD I value and appreciate your input.

    I own both and love both. With that being said, the SVSound spealers (even the rears are rather large (check the dimensions and weight 16 x 13 x 10 in; 27 lb) whereas the Outlaw LCR speakers are 7.25 x 19 x 8.86; 20 lb. and you could use a sub of your choice. (I have mine matched with a REL T-1 and just a few weeks ago with a 12" Infinity, both sounded exceptional).

    You can't go wrong with either and although I love my SVSound system the LCR's best them due to their extreme adjustability (crossover, high-frequency and boundary-compensation switches) which may be ideal for your space and they have nice wall mount brackets available as well.

    As one reviewer put it "I spent more than the usual amount of time with them and still felt I’d only scratched the surface. Their endless versatility practically engulfed me." and this "Conclusion - For just under $650 each, the Outlaw LCR loudspeaker is a true home theater enthusiast's dream come true. Mate the LCR to a flat panel display and a capable receiver and you have yourself a take no prisoners home theater on a budget that will have you scratching your head and wondering why you'd want to spend more. The LCRs' sonic traits are impressive, to say the least, and one only needs to spend a little time with them to fall completely in love. The LCRs are top performers in their class and a fine new addition to the Outlaw family of products, making Outlaw a truly one-stop spot for all your home theater needs."

    Need I say more...

    Here is a link to the owners manual for the LCR speaker system - http://www.outlawaudio.com/outlaw/docs/LCRManual.pdf Maybe it will help in your decision.

    You really can't go wrong no matter which you choose it's just that the LCR's will be much more flexible in placement and sound stage adjustment...
