Very true! Personally I prefer a DR201 over an SVT. And there's also the fact that the SVT isn't exactly ideal for small, or even medium sized venues. LARGE stages is where the SVT shines. I always get a bad feeling when I walk into a small club and see an SVT on stage. 9 out of 10 times that means that 1) I won't hear myself because the SVT is projecting the sound about 3 meters ahead of me and 2) the sound will be anemic because the engineer won't let me turn the amp above 2. I was completely SICK of SVTs for many years because of this. Starting to like them again now, especially the VR.
