    Tweak the frequency adjustment knob and don't raise the volume more than 1/2 way...

    Well it turns out I couldn't wait. Mine arrived on Thursday. I'm still getting it set up and sorted out. I'm using it w/ a 2 channel amp to suppliment my bookshelfs and I haven't had a chance to get the filter right. But so far, I'm pleased. It is a handsome piece, looks much more $$ than it costs.

    Even so, there isn't a WAF high enough to keep it in plain view. It's hidden in a corner behind the entertainment cabinet. Any suggestions on how I can minimize boom, improve attenuation with a corner placement? Put foam next to the wall in the corner, stuff the port?

    Well I got my TAD and my ELT's all hooked up to an Onk 606 (for the time being) and so far so good. The sub seems to perform much better musically then in home theater duty but I am still playing around with it. I've watched the Dave Matthews Blu-Ray and I actually got chills, the system sounded that good. Got the GF coming over to watch the John Mayer show tonight. Still breaking everything in but the little ELT's sound wonderful so far and now I'm thinking about LS's.. :)

    Will do!

    I just ordered a Onkyo 606 (till the emo preamp is launched and bugs worked out) so I'll be able to listen to some Dolby TrueHD. I also ordered the Dave Matthews and John Mayer Blu-Rays. I'm looking forward to putting it to the test and from what it looks like it will be here on Thurs. :huge:

    Now if I only could get AV123 to give me a tracking I'd be happy. :)

    I ordered one last night and he sent along a tracking number today. Figured this should hold me over till I get a couple of MFW's, Sasquatch, BMF et all. I also have an order for a 5.0 set of ELTs from Marks latest offer.

    Thanks to Don for pointing me in the right direction.

    I'll post my impressions when I get it but I know I'm going to need a new preamp and amp here soon. I'm still using an original DD receiver that's lasted me about 10 years now. :nervous:

    for the money I doubt you'll find anything better, but I wouldn't call this a musical sub. It is rather bloated and boomy. Also, the gain has to be turned up to about 9 o'clock before any output

    I got one for about $100 with the 30% MSLive Cashback - really enjoying it at work. Blends very well with the mains and you don't even notice it, except that you now hear the full bass.

    Much happier experience with it than the ULW-10's, which still don't have a fix announced for the helicopter noises - after waiting almost a year. And it only took about 3 or 4 days to get the TAD. May not be as good as a properly functioning ULW, but not sure how much longer I'll have to wait for ULW fixes in order to make that comparison.

    They are worth the money. I have 2 of them. He has been trying to dump them for awhile now. Perfect for music only. For HT they are questionable. That is why he has a hard time selling them, besides not getting good support on the net. For HT they are too small at 10" and under powered at 100w.:his:

    No, sorry. It will be some time before we can hook it up. I have everything for my new set-up except for the interconnects and a new CD player to replace the Oppo (which I like very much, but I wanted a "real" CD player). We've had some health issues this year that have pretty much occupied our attention. I have to make or buy some interconnects, just haven't had the time or energy. It sure is pretty though!

    Oh, I should post this separately but I'll mention it briefly here. I've been considering the NAD cd transport. I got an email this weekend from Pacific Valve about their cd players. They have a BADA model and a couple more excellent quality Chinese cd players on their web site all at good prices. One he said is very similar to the Jolida but considerably cheaper. All have latest DACs, the latest Philips, Sony mechanisms, etc. and are tube/hyrids.

    Just a brief follow-up. My TAD SW-100 subwoofer came yesterday afternoon. I emailed Paul on the 6th to see if he had any left and mailed a Postal Money Order on the 7th. He replied that he got it on the 9th and said they would be shipped on Monday. I got them on Wednesday.

    I know I won't win any friends but I have to say that my FedEx box had nary a dent or scratch. It arrived in perfect shape.

    The subwoofer in gloss piano black is absolutely gorgeous. I set it on the kitchen table while my wife was still chatting with the FedEx young man. She came in (she is 76 and more interested in cookies than stereos) and said, "That is beautiful but you'll have to explain to me what it is and what it does." So it passed the WAF test with flying colors... minus a few comments on whose responsibilitiy it would be to dust it (we live in the country a mile and half down a dusty dirt road).

    It is big, heavy, beautiful, front firing, it looks like about a 12" woofer... way more than I need because we just listen to music and not very loud at that.

    I think I may order another one for a present. No way will I put one in the guest room!

    Anyway, thank you for letting me know about this TAD sale! I can't wait to hear the small TCA subwoofer. I need one for our bedroom.

    Thanks for the info. Have you hooked it up and listened to it yet? If so, what are your thoughts?
