I'm really looking forward to getting a chance to compare the 1099's and Tempest up against my 228HT's, but I'm really looking forward to hearing the 1099's. I'll have a chance to compare some Tempest directly against my 228HT's for the entire week before the GTG that I'm hosting. But like Jeff said I think it's a fair assessment to say that the Tempest would be 90-95% of the JTR speakers from the limited listening I was able to get in with the Tempest when I had some in my basement.
JTR Noesis 228HT (LCR)
Axiom Audio QS8 surrounds
Sherbourn PA 7-350
Falcon Screens FVHD105
Dual PSA XS30's (gone but not forgotten)
