PD on the health of the James Speakers over the course of 3 days.
Day one great sounding best sound at cedia except had not heard JBL (which takes the atmos cake).
Day two speakers behind screen appear to be losing efficiency surrounds sound louder in comparison.
Day three every ambient channel where a vehicle or aircraft was prominently panned thru is blown, the left wall surround (where the truck goes by, the lower left screen channel also truck related and the upper right behind the screen high where the jet and choppers hover, all them fancy four leaf clover tweeters gone.
Im not tooting Jeff's horn but being the one that has heard all systems, Jeff's Room (Miss HT of September) is where the next round of cedia comparisons come to a crux. The Questeds kill the JBL's M2's, and as wonderful the James speakers trumped wisdom and Procella(Can we hear class action suits there- who is the genious that invited these speakers to cedia?) ;-)
The ADA suite had the best ricochet speaker demo, Richard tweaked the presentation and gave an inciteful and wonderfully educational lecture on how to do richochet atmos right. He got third best sound despite there were no ada processors on display just empty chassis, I think Marantz was tweaked by Richard to great effect.
