I love this unit! I've been relying on the bluetooth capabilities on my Rotel A11 for some time now, and never been happy with it. Though the sound is brilliant, it also had a compressed dullness to it (I know that's contradictory). Now that I've moved to a streaming solution, I couldn't be happier. The Bluesound Node is quick, responsive, very easy to use, and just sounds incredible. Worth every cent.
The subwoofer for an "entry level" subwoofer was mind blowing. Hard to believe for the price that you can get that sort of performance out of it.
The subwoofer was very “tight” for music, you can almost hear the beater hit the bass drum skin in recordings. A true full representation of the bass without being overblown. Movies also, the bass seems to come from nowhere, there when needed and disappears when not. I found myself turning the volume down to mesh with the other speakers better, which normally I drive the subby up to be heard.
It certainly raised the bar a couple of levels for my home theatre system and worked seamlessly with my existing speakers.
Made me wonder what the next few levels up would be like if this is the entry level.
I was not disappointed!!!!
I previously had a 20-year-old Tannoy Mercury mX -SUB 10 as a component of a Tannoy Mercury mX2 bookshelf / mXC center 5.1 system. For those who may not have heard of Tannoy they are a very high-quality UK/Scotland company whose speakers are not commonly available in Australia these days. The sub would have cost around $1000 in today’s money. It had a 10” driver, 75w RMS amp, with a frequency range of 35hz to 150hz. I have a 21-year-old Yamaha receiver set to send all frequencies below 90hz to the subwoofer. The subwoofer did a reasonable job but lacked low end and perhaps sounded a bit removed from the overall sound. I have been researching potential replacements for many years and the release of the SVS SB-1000 Pro seamed to tick all the boxes to suit my needs: powerful for the average listener/room size, 20hz +-3db bottom end, 12” driver packed into a compact wife/partner friendly box not much different in size to the mX -SUB 10, very simple/unobtrusive appearance with curved corners and my personal choice of black gloss. I selected the SB-1000 over the PB-1000 as music is my priority. I have many Blu Ray disks of music concerts e.g., Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Santana etc. I have found that this sub integrates seamlessly with the other speakers, allows me to hear the bottom end clearly, tightly, with fast response and, I assume, sounds like it was intended to sound by the sound engineers. The room is a combination lounge/TV room/dining room and it is not all that small but this sub is capable of more volume than I would ever need. While I am not a movie fanatic, I have tried out the sub with a number of Star Wars Blu Ray disks and, to me, it sounds amazing, shaking the room with the impact of the lower frequency sound effects. If you are mainly interested in movies the PB-1000 must sound even more amazing. I have read many reviews on the best subwoofers for 2021 and, depending on the price range and category, SVS often get a very high if not the best rankings. I would have to agree with one comprehensive review that suggested that, if this sub suits your room size and music and to a lesser degree movies are your priority then, this is simply the best subwoofer you can get for the money. If movies are your priority, I would assume the PB-1000 would also be as highly rated.
CHT, never heard of them! I wasn’t even sure they were a real store, the only reference I found was that they were a nominated premium reseller on Benq’s website, which gave me some confidence that they could be legit. So I gave them a call and I got a call back service. Now i was worried…. but I call back from a real person. After a conversation, I took up a promo offer for my first purchase. It arrived very quickly with no issues at all. I installed the Yamaha RX-V6A and it worked perfectly from the get go! One happy ending!
I really like this Yamaha WXA-50. I hooked it up with a pair of Klipsch Synergy S1 surround speakers and a Sherwood SW-10 subwoofer. It generated s great sound field. Now I can play music and songs from Spotify whenever I want from my smart phone. A great device!
The CD11 Tribute is a great CD Player - especially in this updated special model with many new components to make it even more pleasing to the ear. It reproduces the origin music as it was intended to sound. Very Happy.
It produces amazing sound quality, the low extension bass it has will shake your entire home if you want it to.
The amount of tuning options from the app you get with it are perfect for switching from music to home theater sound.
If you want to be evicted from your home, or just go deaf, this is a great option :)
Very happy with my Node2i streamer. Brought completely new life to my current kit. Teamed with my new Tidal account it’s awesome.
Delivery was perfect too.
For me it was between the Rotel CD11 Tribute and the Marantz CD6007. Since I don't live in a capital city I couldn't audition either. In Australia, the Marantz is hugely overpriced (more than double the Rotel) whereas they're similarly priced in UK/EU. Love the Rotel, very musical straight out of the box. Looks like a solid build that I'll be able to enjoy for years. Sure, it doesn't have a USB port to be able to play digital files like the Marantz. What it does do is bring back the joy of browsing my cd collection and sitting down to listen to an album. Delivery took less than a week to regional Queensland. All up very pleased.
Well built and detailed sound. CHT Solutions no fuss transaction & prompt delivery. Thank you.
I ran into trouble with my unbranded optic fibre HDMI cable but I initially thought it was the projector but then after trying all troubleshooting steps , I ended up contacting Scot at CHT and told him about the problems and he suggested to replace the HDMI with Ruipro Optic HDMI 10M and he also ensured that I received the order within just 1 day through express courier. Now once I replaced the cable and some minor resets in projector , all my issues got sorted instantly. I completely recommend CHT solutions for their service.
Great product. Plenty of configuration. Great tight bass.
CHT know their stuff, highly recommended.
Thanks all for a smooth and easy transaction. I must say this sub woofer is a weapon,worth every cent ++ CHEERS
very happy with node2i ,still learning its many features, good quality sound,
Blown away with prompt delivery from CHT, would certainly recommend to others. Jim W
I pulled the trigger on a purchase first time with CHT and everything has been great, delivery a little slow through Melbourne's iron curtain, but still quicker than others. Not had a chance to fire it up yet, but very impressed with the service and simple transaction process. Definitely will purchase again. Thank you.
