I think our opinions differ because I'm looking at it as a consumer. I've spent the last 6 months just choosing my fronts and surrounds. I've visited many of the stores available in my area. Spent way to much time researching online and am now currently more than double my initial budget. Now I am choosing a subwoofer or 2 to complete my system. I couldn't find anything that I was completely happy with and it seemed I was going to have to compromise (and may still have to). So as a consumer I really appreciate the heads up from SVS that one of their new products may be what I'm looking for. Unfortunately my "insider knowledge" was simply a reply to a message I sent through their facebook page. The only information I was given was the new line would be available in gloss black and was referred to as the 3000 series.
