If you would like, PM me your info (name etc), I'll try and get in touch with him also. Doubles our chances lol. Maybe @Mark Seaton will see this post and respond directly to you.

Seaton contact

Feel free to PM me with your contact information as well rikomatik. I put down a half down payment on 4 more of Mark's of Cat 12C's last week, so Seaton Sound is my speaker brand you could say. I will see what I can do about getting Mark to at least respond about potential availability of the amp, but since the old Spark is no longer made, that may be part of the issue.

Seriously, the way communication is taken care of at SeatonSound is completely ridiculous.
Sending an email to sales@seatonsound.net feels the same as sending a letter using the postal service.
At least, an simple acknowledge receipt of inquiry would denote a minimum of professionalism and respect.

WTB: Gently used Trinnov Altitude 16-24 or 16-32. WTB: Gently used JVC DLA-RS4500 or Sony 5000ES

A quick follow up.
I plugged back the defective Spark to test an "amp reset" procedure that a fellow forum member gave me this morning.
I wasn't able to reproduce the problem. The static noise has gone by itself. It seems that having it unplugged for a while did some magic!
All's well that ends well.
Thank you for your help guys
Eric

Hello All

I need some help in selecting speakers for my Atmos Install. I currently have Cat 12C as LCR and Sparks as my Surround

I am looking at 4 in ceiling speakers either Martin Logan EM-R or Monitor 380. What would you all suggest.

I would have gone with all seaton but want to keep my cost down.

My room is roughly 15 ft long x 12 ft wide x 9.5 ft high. Distance from seating location to the front main speakers is about 8-9 ft. Would you guys say it would be worth it to go for the Catalyst 12C over the 8C or will the 8C provide all the output I'll ever need in my room? I listen very loud when possible.

Proposed setup:

Mains: 2 x Seaton Sound Catalyst 8C with matching stands
Center: 1 x Seaton Sound Catalyst 8C
Side surrounds: 2 x Seaton Sound Spark XC2 + SSA-2x2-XC
Back surrounds: 2 x Seaton Sound Spark XC2 + SSA-2x2-XC
Ceiling speakers: 4 x Seaton Sound Spark XC2 + SSA-2x2-XC
Subwoofers: 2 x Seaton Sound SubMersive HPi+ + 2 x Seaton Sound SubMersive HP-Slave

I use 12C in almost set up. My height is only 8.5 Feet.

Cheers

"All the output you'll ever need" says to me you really don't want limits. The 12C will have more dynamic headroom when cranking them, bottom line.

I sent an email to Mark about 9 days ago and haven't received a response yet.

I might go with JTR in this case since, based on what I've read and heard, Jeff seems to be more customer service centric.

Thanks Kain,

We have a lot in the works that we will have all on display at Axpona 2017 where we have a massive 47' x 81' x 22' tall ballroom to work with.

We'll have 2 stacks of 4 F18s flanking the free-standing fabric screen wall with Catalyst 12C's as the LCR and the different Spark models as surrounds.

Here is the add showing what we'll have in the Grand Ballroom C at Axpona (April 21-23rd):
