Just found a nice little write-up about the 215's in Audioholic's AXPONA 2014 coverage. Link

Thanks for the link GIEGAR, very strange to see any review (albeit brief) about a JTR product. The irony of this is that if Jeff tricked up the cabinet by adding some bevels, angles, tapers, inlay metal (unobtanium) or ??? he could charge $10K each and still be the best bang for the buck speaker at the show.

But please, nobody tell him ... OK? tongue.gifwink.gif

Nice little and very simple review of the 215's. Yet, very true! I can't wait till next years Axpona. We'll never know what Jeff has up he's sleeve again. smile.gif

I'd be more interested in Class D if they had a 7-channel offering.

I had the SDS-470 for a few months after I got my D-sonic for my upstairs theater. I've since when to only 3 channels upstairs and my denon 4311 is more than enough and I ended up selling it. It was a great amp, I actually wish I still had it.

It worked great but I was thinking that I would need a fan for air flow. So I ran music really loud for about half an hour and the Sunfire was barely warm. Actually my UMC-1 was a little warmer than the Sunfire and it is only a pre-amp, no amp section!

Great amp. I have seen reports on the TGA-5401 (same amp design except with 5 channels) that when driving two channels it can hit 600watts for each @ 4 ohms. I doubt it will hit 800X7 but still very powerful and cool running. I bet it will do pretty well on the 215RT and RM's.


Actually, the 7401 is only 800 watts for front stage channels, the other 4 channels are just 400 watts per 2 channels. It is a little deceptive how the ratings are worded, but that is in fact accurate/.

Not sure where you got your info but if you look at the 7401 specifications on the Sunfire Website, it unambiguously shows all 7 amp channels outputting the same WPC. confused.gif

Opinions are not facts.

****, I've been trying to figure out how I can buy a full set of JTR speakers, repackage them in prettier clothes, and then sell them for $20,000. Anyone want to start a new company with me?

Would probably sell...I should buy some iNuke and put in big black boxes with 3/4" aluminum face and sell for $20,000 to power the fancied up JTRs. :-D

That's bad Coach. Just cause you still have your 212s for sale doesn't mean you should come on here depressed. You could lose your man card for comments like that.

Too bad the deal fell through for your current 212s to get a new home. Here's to hoping they sell soon so you can upgrade to the big boy 215s that I won't be able to fit in my room.

This is an option to stream 4K content with the Sony 4k projectors.

Just a little grocery shopping ya know. Picked up Act of Valor and watched it for the first time. Great movie for sure and some decent impacts with the gun shots in numerous scenes. But the deep bass was entirely non existent! I think my submersives only worked around 50hz up on some of the impactful gun shots and that was it. Okay surround effects with a few in the movie. It is just weird how some movies have amazing effects and others were just mixed and created with minimal. One thing I was thinking about Dgage when you were talking about your quest for chest slamming 100% satisfying mid bass was the source. Really we buy all this stuff but really it's all about the source.
