I also have the original 212HT's and when I hear both, I think they are pretty close. I recently bought the 215RM center to pair with my 215RT's and the new 215RM has the Phase plug. I want to eventually get that thing on a stand and do a side by side and see if I hear anything different. The only thing is lifting this stuff! I mean the 215RM is no joke either, thing is a baby Rhino!
I forgot that you have the 215RM now for center. Would be cool to hear how it sounds as compared to the RT.

I guess I should have elaborated, but I just commented on the pictures as one being a two way and the other a three way. Both speakers use different CD's hence no phase plug on the HT.

That's what I thought you meant in the first place but wasn't sure.

I could basically have a JTR GTG by myself. I have 4 S8's a 228, 212HT's, 215RM and 215RT's! LOL. It's crazy over here!

Regarding the upcoming BR release of Roger Waters The Wall. Special theater showing Oct 15&18 in select theaters.

Here is another trailer from the film.. Visually it is absolutely stunning.


My goal with my new HT is to replicate the feeling of being front row at the concert. It was so loud my clothes were vibrating.

Hmmm, GTG. Dave's house. Now where have I heard that before?

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

Had a great time demo'ing things for Marsbound today. He brought some great music over. The Pink Floyd 5.1 SACD was excellent and his band's CD (Thirty Spoke) is mixed very well.

To answer your original question, the Slanted 8's are what I am going to use. I'll aim them accordingly to seat positions. Many others have used options like the Volts (DIY), Seaton Sparks, Reaction Audio and JBL has some offerings. Just a matter of mounting them.

Good luck on your future theater build!

Dave's due east of me, to bad my car cannot drive across the bay. I guess I should get a LCAC. I doubt if the Marines would miss one.

By road it's a fairly long drive.

I should have the demo units either Thursday or Friday - hopefully Thursday as I am going camping Friday evening for the weekend.

The other will arrive in 3-4 weeks.
2 of the 210's will be here tomorrow along with my shirt

I never realized this. Very interesting observation. I always assumed there was something on the binding post area but never actually looked.

That's pretty fast shipping on the 210's...I know he had them in stock but it's still fast.


Are the shirts offered on his website? I don't see them for order anywhere.

Yeah, I called and placed the order at lunch and had a shipping confirmation by the end of the workday. It is only 2 day shipping for me.

You can't place orders on this site at all. I am sure you can call him and order one though.

Sorry, I didn't mean order them from the website I meant I don't see them on his website. Think I will give him a call as they looked like very nice shirts and I'll certainly wear it around for some JTR publicity.


Congrats on your 210's and I look forward to you impressions.

In the course of educating myself to eventually build out a dedicated home theater, I've read through this entire thread when I eventually landed on DRC3 offering to demo his set-up (to someone else) at his home in Louisville. I was pleasantly surprised, as I live there myself, and I sent him a private message introducing myself and asking if I might get a listen. Without knowing me like he does others on this thread, he kindly invited me to his place. Turns out he's less than 10 minutes away, and lives in a lovely place with a truly impressive theater room. Great to meet you DRC3 and thanks for showing me an awesome time! I figured I might not ever get ears on JTRs or Seatons before potentially buying them, and I feel really lucky.

I'm not going to review his system, but give a brief impression. I'm not very experienced in this type of sound environment. As DRC3 said, i'm in a band and come from the perspective of guitar amps and live shows more than home theaters. That being said, his system is big, powerful and a true pleasure to listen to. Listening to the 5 channel mix of Wish You Were Here was one of the coolest things i've ever heard and felt. I was also impressed that some softer more acoustic Bela Fleck and the Flecktones sounded amazing as well. This JTR/Seaton setup is not just brute strength. D's movie demos of Interstellar and Jurassic Park were awesome looking and the audio impact was like nothing i've ever experienced. Way better than any movie theater i've been in. The most visceral movie experience i've had!

DRC3 has JTR 215 rm x3 across the front along with a staggering, was it 4? Seaton S2s. And, I kid you not, 2 more Seaton Submersives in the rear of the room. JTR 8 rears. As he said, it's not calibrated in any way yet. Simply placed, powered and played. And it's quite awesome. I know for sure I want to go with this type of home theater room. Anyone have a Seaton Catalyst 12c room nearby I can sample??

DRC3, thanks a ton! You have a great place and a stunning theater. Great to meet you!

The 2 demo units from RMAF will arrive tomorrow but it will be about a month before I get the third for a center channel. In the mean time, I will keep my 212's in place behind the screen and just use the 210's for stereo listening without a sub. I will have them on either side of the screen and run off of a spare denon receiver. I should be able to give some two channel listening comparisons/ impressions in the next week or so. I plan to listen to them for several hours thursday evening and friday afternoon before heading out for the weekend.

3 RM's, 6 submersives and S8's.....yeah that would be visceral. Great system @DRC3 and Marsbound good luck on your HT journey.

Great, I am pondering a 210 pair for my family room system and will be interested in your take on SQ and bass extension. What I heard at RMAF was very impressive.

I've not heard the 210's but I'm thinking they would sound very similar to the 215RT's with a little less bottom end. Did you get that feeling when you heard them Rob?

We blind tested the 212's against the Cat 12C's, along with the Danley sm60f and Selah CBT's. Check it out:

Take the Ferry! I don't think it took me to long to get to Asim's. Hour and a half maybe minus the boat ride!

I would love to host a blow out GTG and believe you me, if I had the room and a theater in the basement, I would host once or twice a year! I would certainly be open to a small 5 or 6 man GTG however be more of a social GTG as I really could not get that loud, but I would/could open it up earlier in the day! As of right now I am not ready for anything as everything is still in pieces!

At RMAF, I believe the 210's were run in 2 channel mode for music only and none of the music I heard was the really bass intensive stuff. IMO. the 210's were incredibly clear and powerful full range speakers. Best in show if you will and they didn't leave much on the table bass wise as compared to the 215 RT's. I believe DD said they were "flat to 20hz". That's pretty good ...
