Very nice upgrade!!

PSA 210s and JTR big boys!
I am trying to reach an LCR upgrade decision between the PSA 210T + 210C vs the JTR 228 HTs
. Which are both highly regarded here. Appreciate your opinion as to the relative merits and negatives if any of the PSA and JTR speakers.
I am a relative noob having been infected by this virus only 18 month ago!
I especially welcome comments from this knowledgeable group who have experienced the PSAs and/or JTRs.
The new LCR will replace my Ascend 340SE + Ascend 170 set up in my 20' x 15' x 8' dedicated HT room.
Power is from a Yamaha RX V779 AVR. Lower end is covered by a single 15" Hsu Vtf3 Mk5 sub near-field used as an end table inches from my elbow. However a second Sub will join next. The excellent Ascends will move to my living room.
MLP couch is 17' from screen/speakers. My usage is 70/30 movies & music.
Price diff is roughly $1000 between these two LCR sets, which is significant. So other than price what aspects should I be considering? I do not listen at anywhere near reference level as I have sensitive hearing. I do enjoy good clean sound and bass with ample headroom. Music without a Sub (ie 2 speakers only) is not really a priority as I enjoy the fullness and depth a Sub adds. I like vocals and jazz not EDM nor heavy classical.
Physically the 210T Cab is bigger likely allowing it to dig deeper also it wont need stands, the 228HTs weighing in at 75lbs will need expensive sturdy stands.
PSA and JTR each have a strong and loyal following among the discerning AVS members and I will probably not regret going with either set. However I want to make the best choice.
Another factor is the ease of resale
when inevitably I decide to upgrade further up!
Thank you for reading!
