Hi Lukas,

I wish you were true about the 2S being superior to a DB1D ;)

What makes you think it’s superior? Do you have real world comparison figures? I can understand B&W margins are far superior than yours, yet I think B&W achieved a great sub if we don’t consider its price.

Speakers are a bit larger on the 2S, that I can see. Amp is overkill in both products. I guess it’s about the speakers quality, isn’t it?

I make note it’s 200 EUR to return the sub so at the moment I’ll be looking for reviews all over the web for the next couple of weeks. I see the glossy version isn’t in stock before the end of May so not in a hurry :)
