Mark's room was even more impressive in the fact that it was triple the size at 60x90. It truly was the size of of a theater. The 8 F18's had complete control of the room when called upon as well as walking in and seeing two towers of subs.. Always a treat to talk to Mark as he is so knowledgeable about what is the next step, and how to achieve it. The Stewart screen and Sony projector threw an emersive picture with everything that was thrown at it.He had the new sparks on display which would match the F18's perfectly. They are truly beautiful and would be artwork to hang on your wall and then blow people away when you fire them up.

I am not sure which Elton John set it was. I was more taking in what the speakers were doing with the room and taking pictures. I was also talking to Imagic and Desertdome at the time. The sets that stood out were the Star spangled banner and the orchestra with Star Wars. Truly a great variety to showcase the strengths of the full range speaker system. I know Mark Seaton was playing The force awakens and Sing. They both played So far gone from Art of Flight. Mark was a little more subdued as this was mid day but did crank it up a few times while the headphone huggers were out to lunch with quite a few giggles from the audience. Jeff had the Hotel add another circuit on Sunday so he was happy to lean on the go peddle when asked. It was funny that Emotiva was next door with at least four xref subs, and thow capable, couldn't really even come close to the effortless power from the full range speakers.

I just got home from AXPONA about an hour ago. I've been so busy since last Wednesday that I haven't even been on the forum until now. My wife and kids stayed with a friend 2 hours south of Chicago. I got in there last night at 1 am and slept until noon today. After repacking the van and eating lunch, we headed back home.

On Thursday Jeff and I loaded everything in trailers and vans, drove an hour to the Westin, unloaded everything with the help of Jeff's friend, and built an entire theater and 2 channel room with audio and video calibration. In the middle of the day, I also did a quick audio calibration for the live sound venue. After the hour drive back to Jeff's house, we finally got to bed at 2 am. Had to get up by 7:30 on Friday to head down to the show for some last minute setup and arrangements.





Leonard Caillouet of AVNirvana.com spent quite a bit of time in our room. He even came back on Sunday afternoon for at least an hour after writing this:

Quote:
Jeff from JTR is a very pleasant gentleman, soft spoken and passionate about his products. He speaks openly about his design philosophy, which is not mainstream, for sure, but quite sound engineering. The result is a very pleasant surprise, with products like the NOESIS 210RT, which are efficient, tremendously powerful, and extremely low distortion. For such a monster in terms of its power, it is quite pleasing to listen to and is capable of a solid and expansive sound stage, has superb balance, and did I mention, low distortion. As most of you know who have been around me, my starting point for speakers is very low distortion, particularly in the mid-range. It is here that we are most sensitive, and where most content is that requires precision, IMNSHO. With his coaxial compression driver and careful attention to horn design, he achieves precisely this. With the mid-range response of his driver, the crossovers can be moved well out of the mid-range resulting in a seamless transition that many speakers have trouble with. Jeff is one of those engineering types that really does not care to attend to marketing and presentation, just wants to build better products. We look forward to getting to know his speakers better and working with him to get reviews and perhaps even some product giveaways. His was one of the better stories of the show, in spite of his apparent lack of interest in such. He provided speakers to support the blues show Saturday night, as well as stage monitors (note his speakers on the high stands on either side of the stage in the pictures of the show). The results were astoundingly good, and the monitors were said by performers to be among the best they had used.

His theater demonstration was a knockout, being limited only by the power that the hotel could provide. On Sunday morning JTR was able to get an additional 20A circuit, and this allowed them to get more volume. They had 7 channels at 2500 watts each of available amplification, but could not take advantage of it. The bass seemed more controlled with less distortion today, even though before the system sounded impressive.

The JVC 4K projector that JTR had was the best calibrated and on 4K material did the best job.

None of that review above surprises me including the JVC calibration! Well done gentlemen! Wish I could have made it up. Hopefully next year

OT, but I read last night that Elton John came down with some sort of illness due to an infection he acquired in South America. He canceled the rest of the tour.

JTR Speakers Noesis 215RT 7-Channel Home Theater System: Best of AXPONA 2017

Quote:
No speaker system at AXPONA 2017 could hope to compete with the 7-channel rig JTR Speakers showed at AXPONA 2017. It’s not a practical outfit for someone like me who lives in a Philly row house. But, in terms of capability plus methodology, the system JTR founder and speaker designer Jeff Permanian showed—featuring seven of his Noesis 215RT ($3299 each) was a stunner.

Speakers should be kept in media stands to enhance the look of your room. They look extremely classy that way.
