I have the 8801 and love the combo with my Noesis'. cool.gif

I'm debating between 8801 and sr7008. Did you compare the two?

No, sorry.

I already had the amps, needed the balanced outputs, got a great deal on the 8801 so went for it without hesitation.
No regrets.
So far it works without a single issue and sounds great on JTR.

That is correct. However LM uses no internal EQ in his review of these processors.
8801's XT32 will widen the gap between these two in most situations.

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1456908/the-bms-group-buy-thread/420 Pictures at the bottom

Here's a link to pictures of the BMS 4550 1" CD and the 4592 2" coaxial CD cut into to see the "Guts" or inside.

The 212 uses the 1.4" 4593 so it looks basically the same. It gives a good visual of the differences between the CDs

There is also a lot of good information on BMS CDs in general. Pay attention to Jack Arnott's posts. He is the BMS North American sales rep.
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1456908/the-bms-group-buy-thread/90 This is where the good info starts.

By the time you get to the pictures the thread starts to fall apart. Try to ignore that b/c there is good information on BMS CDs up until that point. smile.gif
Sorry for not catching that earlier.

I'll just say, with pretty much any newer processor, if the sound is really different, something isn't setup right. Man, pretty much everything has the same guts now days. Everything is from big OEMs with different faceplates. My favorite was a bunch of guys claiming how much better the Integra 80.3 was vs the Onkyo 5509.... Exact same units, different chassis. One guy had both and took pics, 100% identical insides, they STILL claimed otherwise. urgh clownies for sure.

We all hear slightly differently and then mix in bias and subtle physical differences and you have a recipe for the varied opinions that are so common here.

If we are just talking about pure amplification, then i think you guys are probably right...

However, after auditioning lots of receivers (at my friend's home theater shop), the differences comes in the DSPs... the more expensive receivers have certain 'listening modes' that may comply with say, thx, etc.. and they sound fantastic.. for instance, both my old marantz' movie mode and my onkyo 3009 thx movie mode are my favorite... (with the thx in the onkyo beating out the marantz).. however, my brothers $300 buck yamaha amp doesn't have those modes.. all their modes didn't sound anywhere close to the quality of my other 2 receivers...

So, i guess in the 'dsp' area, which is standard in receivers... that might make most of the differences.. not the amp part of the receiver..

I should have clarified this point. I was referring to pure direct mode (2 channel) or a bitstream source (eg DTS-HD-MA) and with or without Audyssey XT32 in the same room. Of course if you apply different DSP's you will get different sound.

I visited the Audiologist recently and was told that I have excellent hearing. I am the best in my family at identifying voices (external tongue.gif ), picking out songs after only a few notes (name that tune) and understanding people with strong accents. Yet, I do not seem to have the golden ears that many in this hobby possess. smile.gif

Back to speakers, even though I have a functional system (3 channel, sans subs) I think I am having HT withdrawal ... I sold the Noesis and OS's too early! That has forced me to hangout here more and post nonsense (like the rest of you tongue.gif ).

Um...No cardboard boxes for the shifters?? I know real men wear pink, but they also shouldn't be commando underneath. Didn't want to risk any scratches even with a dolly, so had to carry each.





Saw dust must indicate freshness, right?

Asim, I forgot - did you end up deciding on 212's for LRC? So 2 OS and 3 212's? Oh man, this is going to be awesome! What are you doing for surrounds? I'm sorry if you told me all of this already I'm starting to mix up what everyone is getting. smile.gif

So the box says Triple 12 on the outside, but I ordered 212 for LCR. Likely just recycled boxes...I hope wink.gif

I would've been fine with 228, but when everyone, especially you, kept raving about the music performance, I just had to try the 212. Fingers crossed to hit two birds with this setup. wink.gif

Thanks bro...these are a small part of the reason Jeff didn't answer any emails or calls wink.gif

You'll have to come over once I get a receiver...hopefully in a couple days. Everything will just sit and get acclimated with the inside temperature for now...and get rid of any condensation. And you know you're the measurements expert within the 3 mile radius! wink.gif

Hey, that's my system errr it was my system redface.gif. I had no idea you placed a mega order like that and that does explain why Jeff has been incommunicado. Very cool and looking forward to your impressions. I have a pretty good idea how it will sound. cool.gif

Rob,

Remember several months back when I PM'd you about organizing your thread? I wanted to use your system/thread as an example of the highest performance per dollar system available today...

Asim shot straight to the moon! We have to update our location so we can put South Riding on the map as the go-to demo spot for bassheads!

I think as the roads start to thaw out over the next few days your luck with FedEx will change. Keep your head up as you have one of the best looking JTR systems I have laid eyes on smile.gif

Asim
Congratulations on your system choice!!
You could not have done better. Way to start at the top.
Looking forward to your thoughts.

When I couldn't bribe you to ship me your LF shifters, I had to bite the bullet. Only difference is I got the LFU versions...so 4hz deeper to 22hz tongue.gifwink.gif

I was on order for an LCR of 215s, but I figured selling any of these will be easy if I decide to switch later, so decided to try the conventional surround set up. I can't wait to hear your thoughts when you get yours...If the 215 take it to next level, I'm thinking I could just swap out the LR and keep everything else. TBD. smile.gif

Thank you...I'm really excited smile.gif

I didn't want to have any what-ifs lingering in my head and its much easier to downsize than upgrade. Life's too short not to do things right the first time. Yeah, that's right...I just went philosophical to justify a speakers purchase wink.gif

Congratulations on your system choice!!
You could not have done better. Way to start at the top.
Looking forward to your thoughts.

Thanks Chris...can't wait to hook these monsters up.

When I was checking tracking like a fiend, there were notices on their site indicating many delays in the mid Atlantic and mid west states due to the weather...hopefully nothing is actually lost and just delayed. I got really lucky...my order came thru Illinois to PA, then VA without any issues. I was really surprised with the weather impact around our areas.
