I have no idea if theEar is for real or not, but the info that was posted sure looked very damaging to his case. Please keep in mind unsuspecting buyers might spend thousands on an item based on what appears to be sound advice from an authority on the subject...

While I very much appreciate you keeping the house clean, I also think it's important that people know when they are possibly dealing with a fraud.

I have saved everything I posted so if people want to hear it they can PM me. Until theear again makes fraudulent posts we must obey the wishes of the mods. Everything is however saved and documented.

Well, I ended up buying the JL Fathom f113. Never got to listen to the Trinity, decided it was just too big for my room.

Based on everything I've read, I don't think you can go wrong with that choice if SQ is your main criteria. The only place I'd expect the Trinty to out perform the f113 would be raw output and 'maybe' down very low.

Please let us know how you like the f113!

I will definitely let you guys know what I think. I've been watching the first season of Rome all weekend and it just has some booming bass drum beats throughout. My DefTech Supercube 1 sounded really good, so I can't wait to hear what the f113 can do with that! Although it did start to scare me that it sounded so good, maybe I was crazy to upgrade. I'll be sure and let you know what I think of the difference.

My room is only 2000 cu. ft., so I didn't need tons more output, but I wanted something that would be very clean down low.

The "Ok to Go!" scene in Contact just made the Supercube go flabby nuts!

There's no doubt in my mind that you'll be happy with the f113 based on the raving reviews. But you're right, there's certainly a point of diminishing returns when it comes to AV equipment. I guess it all boils down to how good do you want it, and how much do you want to spend...

I'm definitely learning that lately. I was a bit disappointed with BD/HD-DVD, I mean they look great, but not like going from SD to HD the first time. I was considering upgrading my DefTech StudioMonitors, but after listening to them this weekend, I think that's pointless.

It's hard, I love researching and shopping for upgrades, it's kind of an addiction. But now that I have a 1080p projector, 60" plasma, BluRay + HD-DVD, and a Fathom, there's not much left to do except waste money on diminishing returns.

My wife already thinks I'm crazy. Wait til a 130 pound sub shows up on the doorstep this week! She'll say, do we NEED more bass? I thought it already sounded great.

So I think I need to put a moratorium on upgrades and maybe do more tweaking instead.

Well Ear, we're coming up on a month and you said you'd have it in two to three weeks. I was just talking to a DT dealer yesterday. He said if I ordered a Trinity today, I'd have it in a week or two so I know you must have receive it by now.

What's the deal? When can we expect your review and the pics of all your subs?

Definitive inflates the specification a lot:

For example, Definitive claims SuperCube III with FR 16 to 200hz;
Tom Nousaine's test shows the FR for SuperCube III is 44 to 110Hz, that is just as good as a Bose bass modular.

Don't expect to hear from him.

Yeah, don't hold your breath Collin.

And Zissou, I am to understand (from a VERY good source) there are still no digital cameras available for purchase in Montreal!

Too bad... I was so looking forward to TheEar's review and pictures.

Let's hope the dearth of digital cameras on offer in Montreal is rectified shortly.

Oh yeah thats the new fad now, dealers dropping HUGE, mainstream lines such as Def Tech in favor of brands like Canton . Next, you watch, when it comes time to take delivery of the JL Gotham he has ordered, his JL dealer will go belly up.

I wish there was a solid consumer review of the Trinity. With that many drivers, that big of a cabinet and a ton of power, it HAS to be a very good subwoofer!!

I think you guys would have a better chance of getting Craig to review one. He's got more credibility. He actually has and uses a digital camera as well.

Well I can see that theEAR last signed in 3 minutes ago and didnt reply to this thread so I guess what you guys are saying is true. If it is that's just sad. I could never understand why people choose to lie over the internet.

Like the opinion of people you've never seen or met matters that much in your life.
I hope I'm wrong and you actually have what you say you do.
