One thing I want to know for sure is how it will do in my system. I actually might have to keep my Open DRC in the fact that it takes ALL, 100% of the noise out of my two Submersives. I took it out one time and the noise was horrible. I don't think the Nanoavr up in the chain will do that.

You shouldn't have any noise in a normal system so I'm not sure why the OpenDRC would be cleaning the noise up. If you mean hiss or something, you could try grounding your amps to your receiver or use some cheater plugs.

One of the good things on the NanoAVR is that it is completely digital so just plugging it into the chain should not affect the sound at all and that has been my experience. The only negative thing Coach and I have noticed is a slight reduction in sound level, meaning you need to turn the volume up a little higher than normal for the same output. But there are multiple ways to address that.

The NanoAvr has really taken my system to the next level. I have no doubt that without it, the 215's wouldn't had been able to sound as good as they did. Audyssey actually laid a solid foundation and the NanoAvr cleaned things up.

I highly recommend it if you are only using XT32 or one of the other Room correction offerings from the other brands like Pioneer, Yamaha or even Anthem.

I currently use the Open DRC-AN version for Submersive EQ. I couldn't live without it or something similar As far as the noise I don't know exactly what it is. I just know right now I have the RCA to XLR's into the Open DRC from the Denon4520 and XLR to XLR out to the two Submersives. When I took it out briefly one time to experiment the SubM's were suddenly humming quite loudly. I know this place has issues because I got the hiss/buzz from the Sherbourn PA7350 before I sold it.

Once again I'll speak for Coach since he's traveling today. I think "cleaning up" might be the wrong choice of words. Audyssey gave a nice base and evened out the frequency response for his calibrator but with Audyssey, even the Pro version, there is little control. So really what the NanoAVR allowed the calibrator to do is get the sound to Coach's preference which is strong midbass along with maybe increasing the upper end a little. Coach and I haven't actually looked at the NanoAVR configuration but that is what was communicated by the calibrator. And I must say it really made the215s sound sweet, better than Audyssey only and especially better than just hooked up out of the box.

Nah. I was browsing through Best Buy the other day and settled on a Sony HTIB. UNBELIEVABLE SQ and dynamics.

But thanks for asking.

Thank you for the response. Not real happy with Audyssey and am looking to improve certain areas. So it looks like this could be a solid choice.

Well, let me rephrase that. The 212HT's are for sale. I just don't know yet whether I'm keeping one for my center or not. So I definitely have two, and most likely three for sale. I just wanted to make a definitive decision on the third before I officially offered them up.

I'm surprised no one wanted to buy yours. Maybe your price was too high?

I had no offers. I had em listed for $3900 with free stands. I was just letting you know the market is a little flat right now.

I am not either. Manual EQ can really make your system shine, but using audyssey and then adjusting out to your preference is likely the most prudent as it would require less tweaking after audyssey... Doing it before would require quite a bit more work...

Ha! That's too cheap IMO. JTR's are built like tanks and for someone looking to save some money buying used JTR's is about as safe a purchase as I could imagine. At least as far as speakers go. When I bought mine there were no used to buy, otherwise I would have. About the only thing you'll miss out on going used is that overwhelming stench in your house as the finish cures.

I need some immediate comments. I decided last night I was going to buy a cheap projector to get going on my experience while I save for a Sony 55ES. Was looking at a different cheap Optima but found this one

http://www.amazon.com/Optoma-HD25-LV...ustomerReviews

2500 norm for 859...Would swipe the card today...Some say it has an annoying buzz from an electrical transformer inside. I can always try out from Amazon and send back if bad...

You wanna try good $2k projector out? PM me and I will sell you my BenQ w7000 for just a little more than that optoma costs and you will already be in hog heaven. Works perfect, and has 4 prs of 3d glasses coming with it if you want. Honestly it would be a great projector for you for at least a couple years...

Well I think I will do some research tonight and make a decision. The 1070 is like 750 on Amazon which is even more appealing considering the reason I am buying it. (just to get an immediate PJ setup and sell or use it elsewhere when a uber HQ PJ comes into my life)

I have never heard a side by side, but Jpowell has the triple 8's I believe, Pm him and see how he feels about. If beast chimes in, he had the triple 12's for a time I believe, he has also heard both. The 12's are similar to the 8's.

I cannot believe you still have them. All the people looking for speakers could jump on these and be happy for years. I will send people your way if I see someone looking.
