Bottom Line:   
You are right, looks like some SVS lowlife has tried to bring down the rating of this highly rated product. This reflects very poorly on the company and it's owners in my opinion.

The VTF-3 is also not less musical than the VTF-2. Far from it, the VTF-3 improves on VTF-2 in every way while retaining the musicality. My goodness where do these reviews come from!

What a wonderful product! For the price, I cannot think of any other subwoofer that has such a good combination of sound quality and features for music and movie. Well done Dr. Hsu!

Bottom Line:   
This sub is the sub to beat in the 700 US dollar price range. The VTF-3 sounds significantly more musical than the SVS PB1-ISD, plays louder, looks better, has more features. No comparison really.

The Hsu has more amp power and more porting that helps it get louder; The Hsu has perhaps a better quality driver with 20 pound magnet that helps it sound better; The Hsu has ability to tune lower than 20Hz, that helps it have more features; The Hsu has a smoothed out Ascend-type finish that helps it look better.
