Again, thanks for drawing attention to the Audio Mastering Thread Dbeck. I think this is an important issue but it is not directly related to the 3D audio formats. In fact, object based mastering and the associated playback formats might be a way of addressing the "issue".

Oh and I didn't spend wads of cash on my Atmos upgrade. It was actually one of the more affordable upgrades I have done from a bang for buck perspective. Of course, based upon the relative quality of our theater builds my standards are lower than yours.

That just says you have a bad system if you have to constantly work the remote during a movie. For me it's set it and forget it and I'm sure there are plenty of others here who do the same.

I suppose those of us with capable systems (Outliers) can just turn the volume up on these doctored releases to get back to the real cinema (or better) experience. I just hope something significant isn't lost in translation.
Even my weak sauce three subwoofer system I never adjust volume in a movie. Set the volume at the beginning and let it ride.

I sure hope they don't keep mucking up the sound on blu Rays. Just because a lot of people have crap systems they should not be the target for the studios to mix movies.

I show 500 pages! Still that's a lot of goodness in one thread.

My settings are the same as Angus because I'm at 1000 pages. Must be the default setting because I haven't changed anything.

You're way ahead me...I've never seen the movies...only like 20 minutes of the first one. Always have been waiting to watch it 'properly' with a bd of the original theatrical version on a big screen...I may be waiting a long time.

These updated 228's, etc have me really thinking. lol... I'm debating putting a projector and screen in my basement, and I think these would do well behind the screen.

Am I correct that the 228's would work very nicely for HT? I'd be doing 100% movies, TV, etc with them. Already have the subs

Thanks.

They will do even better now! Will be a fantastic speaker for 100% movies. However don't count them out for music as they will sound just as good for music.

Good point RMK. Just throwing it out there since I picked up things that I didn't know which is no huge surprise. But you're right, not just an issue for the new audio formats.

I prefer 100 posts per page - especially when viewing any threads in the Dedicated Theater Design and Construction subforum. This way the pictures can load while I'm reading and I can easily skip posts not pertinent to the actual build. I'm on page 300 for JTR Speakers and @lbrown105 just put a bunch of posts in the middle of my page.

Dang Sorry DD...
So we are nearly at 30k posts!
That's awesome... I wonder if that's a record for the forum?

You can click on any subforum and then sort by replies to find which threads have the most replies. JTR Speakers is currently 6th in the Speakers subforum but will soon jump to 4th. I believe the largest thread at AVS is the "Official" Audyssey thread (FAQ in post #51779) thread with 76,219 posts since 1/27/07.

I'm feeling outdated already

So...
228HT - 2-way
228HTR - 3-way

I see on the Just The Rfacts website the HTR adds annular diaphragm compression driver...since this and the price is the only difference, what's the intended benefit of this?

228HTR has the coaxial CD same as 212HTR, 210RT/RM, 2125RT/RM................ annular diaphragm CD needs to be changed to neo coaxial compression driver on the website.

Right...but I was trying to find a difference/benefit of the CD...by chance, has Jeff mentioned the benefits of the 228HTR over the 228HT? All the specs listed for both are identical...from frequency range (70hz-20khz), usable output (129db), and everything else.

EDIT:
I'll see your edit, and raise you with...he probably still has to update the specs for the 228HTR

I was actually trying to make a joke on myself tho, since I missed the bit that you could change the page length from default!

If you click the number of replies then it will drill down and show all posters in order of posts in the thread. You can come whatever conclusions you want.

I think from what you cut and pasted the following no longer have JTR's:


jpowell84
Gooddoc
Frohlich
Archaea
Coach2369.


I think that's right.

Jpowell still has T8's. Beastaudio had T12's but now has Danley's. Jbrown also moved on to RA from 228's, but he will be back
