Bottom Line:   
I don't understand any negative reviews of this sub. It's a small sub, so it's not going to shake the walls. But for it's size it's great. No distortion, great sound out of a small great looking sub. Works great for my home theater and pairs well with my FPMs.

Hello i had a Monitor Audio Radius 360 it was crap. I've also had Rel Q100E it bottomed out so easily absolute garbage. Then i got PV1 for £950 ,what a rip off.You can get much better sub for £450. What hi fi rated it as 5 stars, it should be called what pay off the PV1.It has got not no rummble what so ever ,yes you can hear bass but dont feel anything what so ever. The only thing the PV1 has got going for it is that it is the nicest looking sub out there but all that glitters aint gold.

Bottom Line:   
Amazing sub and here's why, it's not completely made by B&W, if you take a nice look at the specs it said ICEpower amplifiers, which is created and made by Bang & Olufsen, a Danish company (and far better than B&W) Anyhow the ICEpower amp is what makes it possible for B&W to have a sub as compact as this. Look for all B&W speakers to be outsourced in the near future, they have been manufacturing the majority of their speakers in China the past few years. Sucks to see a good company shut down their R&D and outscource to cheaper companies. There's still some great companies out there! Definitive Technology is the future! check them out! USA too!

Conrad Johnson PV1?

I know this tube preamp is the first they made. I have a chance to swap some gear for one that's been recapped and upgraded to the PV2. Anyone have any experience and/or comments regarding this model?Read More »
