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

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.

I'm wondering if the owens corning boards used to protect the shifters could be used for room treatments? Would be fantastic...buy jtr subs, get free treatments wink.gif But these are not 703, so anyone know off hand? These are labeled R-10, Foamular 150. Seems these might be too dense to absorb sound and just bounce it.

Have to say the Marantz AV8801 is one of the best HT upgrades I have ever made. My previous pre/pro was a Marantz av7005 with XT. I am guessing 80% of the improvement is XT32 and the other 20% is the AV8801. My bass is way cleaned up, though everything sounds better. I have watched a ton of blu rays, especially "Art of Flight" , in the last couple of days to do tests with material I am familiar with. Very happy. If the Noesis give me another bump in performance when they arrive (though I am guessing they will show up more in music than movies) then I will be one happy camper.

funny thing is that the person at the local fedex branch said she was familiar with jtr speakers, because they get them quite often at this branch, NY/NJ area, hope it wasn't some truck driver that decided to bring them home for an audition.

That is what is bad about having the name of the product on the shipping package. If they where double boxed with the outer box blank it would not happen.

Someone in the bass forum had a similar issue with their SVS sub.

I would be livid. So sorry you're going thru this...Not fun for weeks of positive anticipation to turn into this kind of anxiety. Hopefully they turn up.

I agree that Asim's take no prisoners approach was impressive. Hope he like the results. smile.gif

This may prevent an honest man from being tempted but not a thief. The phrase "locks only keep honest people out" may apply here.

The shipping manifest will have the name JTR on it as will the package origin.
It may still be stuck in the cold somewhere and just missed a scan.smile.gif

The weather is wreaking havoc on Fed Ex and UPS right now. Keep calm, and call Jeff. I fully suspect that you will get positive information on the whereabouts of your speakers when Fed Ex recovers.

The same thing happened to me in December with my JTR shipment. Fed Ex had them listed as "Departure Scan" from Chicago, but no arrival scans. 3 days went by. Once the storm cleared up I got a message saying they were out for delivery. They never arrived....So I called and learned that  Fed Ex couldn't even find them.  I ended up going to the facility and they discovered them still on the truck from Chicago. All was well.

The extra 4db of extension should be all you need unless you are a brown note chaser (see above tongue.gif ). Good luck with the setup and remember you can't have too much power for these components. cool.gif.

Oh, don't worry...completely understand. At almost 200lbs each, I can understand your apprehension to even moving them even a few feet. These suckers are lazy and fat once they sit down.

After hearing/seeing some recent tests, I've concluded if you're in the 20something-hz, there's nothing more needed. The ROI of going below 20 is null, pun intended. I have zero desire to chase brown notes...until someone can convince me otherwise, I'm sure I won't miss anything with the OS.
