I had the last format in black as well as this format and have always liked it better. The only problem is when people change their font color to a dark color or grey. It gets hard to see what they say, but that doesn't happen to often.

I have had one for about a month and a half and think it is an absolutely superb amplifier. The best one I have owned so far. Super clean looking and puts out some serious wattage

Beast.. You had it for month and a half? Why? If you don't mind I'm asking. And was it the M3-5400 that you had? Thanks..

Anyone else get the JTR 215RT's yet?

I only know of RMK's thoughts, anyone else try it in their setups and what do they think about them?

N8DOGG has had his for a few weeks now, you could PM him but I bet he'll see your post and he'll reply here.

I'll take ownership of mine (Three 215RT's) on July 15th, and should have them dialed in by July 20th.

I have only had it for a month and a half, and plan on keeping it for quite a bit longer! The one I bought was the m2-2500 as that was ample enough wattage by a long shot for anything I would even put on it. at close to 1000 wpc 4 ohm, that is more than I will ever need, and the price was right on the "Bstock" units that he builds out custom per order Nothing really B stock about them.

It is my understanding that Jeff was set to receive the parts this week.

I was second in line behind RHED until the delay, now I am being told another 2-3 weeks before they will be here.

My order is for 2 - 215RT and 1 - 215RM...

Very much looking forward to it..

Da*n straight!!

Nah, just got lucky with the timing of the upcoming GTG. Oooh my first usage of a new smiley.

Hmmm and then got lucky with the timing of the sale of my 212's.... and then got lucky that the new owner is a friend and let me keep the 212's until the GTG (VERY cool of him to do that!! ). All the planets aligned for me on this one.

Jeff is probably still tweaking the XO for the 215RM. He will likely keep doing that till they ship.

Sorry Coach I meant to quote Rhed's post.

Jeff told me that if the drivers would have come in last week, most likely the speakers would have been ready to ship this week. The delay in the drivers in combination of the upcoming GTG has put things behind as much as they have...

I am busy with work...which helps things.

Quick question for you guys. I am running in wall wiring today and I hit a snag. I am going to need 50ft sub cables. Is that to long? I could maybe get away with 35' but will be pushing it. What do ya'll think? Thanks

I would think that as long as its high quality RG6 cable you should be fine.

My only real concern with that would be if for some crazy reason you had a fire or something and your insurance company found out you had non-inwall rated cable or wire inside the wall they'd use some stupid excuse that voids your home insurance.
