hey there everyone..
I'm a convert , never personally owned decent speakers , I'm new to the audiophile world. In my home we I have KEF floorstanding Speakers dont remember what model , klipsch KLF 30's and previously also had some Polk RTi A9 & A7's , lots of Bose here and there..
Recently received my Triple 8's...
Sadly bought the Triple 8's for my small bedroom (16x15) , I so regret not getting the Triple 12's..I originally wanted those but the duty , weight/shipping chargers , the mega fear of damage , along with my friend who ordered them for me and my lack of experience with these speakers set me towards sticking to the idea of simply getting Triple 8's..
I decided to buy JTR speakers after reading the many threads about them both here and else where but mainly based on the user reviews/experiences here..
All this thirst for speakers began after I herd some excellent $$$$$$$ speakers at a club.. like $$$$$$$
I also had to beat my brother's KLF 30's and my cheesy Polk A7 wasn't a contender..
Was about to get the Klipsch Ultra 2 since it was available locally ...
But I landed bent on getting JTR's , didnt have alot of cash on me..
I'm running them with horrible cables , an Onkyo 9755 (Stereo 300wpc) :S..
Speakers using cheap straight monster cables and have a 3$ crappy RCA cable hooked to my pc.
Even still , simply put they're amazing.. far better sounding then any speaker I've herd in anyone's home , I cant compare them to my benchmark speakers because my amp is weak and my wiring sucks and it's been 4 years since I last herd those (Club Speakers).. I dont want to cross the line by saying my T8's sound better
Even tho as a first impression I felt a dip/loss in bass compared to all the other speakers I own but I honestly dont care about that because I believe these speakers were built to produce excellent sound and produce bass differently , if I want bass I should get a separate sub..
You get bass but not the window rattling sort that booms/punches ur room but hard sound producing base.. but the bass is very powerful in it's own right , it wont break or distort @ really high volume , unlike most other speakers I've known..
As for sound , I dont have the vocabulary to describe how amazing it is..
These speakers are perfect , I cant imagine what the T12's would sound like.. I knew I'd feel this way.. :S
When I tried a Diamondback Platinum PC on my ThermalTake Computer Power supply (btw using a Xonar HDAV 1.3 Deluxe Soundcard) , I mean these speakers started to sound like I was at the cinema..
Hopefully in the end , I'll know more about what amp to get and what wires to match my speakers with..
I'm a complete newbie..
I believe these speakers are superb for music , equally if not better then it is with movies.
I remember reading people else where saying how the JTR's weren't great for music..
I've actually started listening to music many hours each day because it has now become an experience..
My thanks to all you guys for guiding me in the right direction..
RMK! your thread is what raised the first eyebrow !
Jeff , your God sent.. I wish you could give discounts
I'd have the Captivator & 3xT12's
(Do excuse my crappy english)
