It sounds great but I have only listened to some music at -30 to -27. Have family in for the weekend and they are using the bedroom above my system. No one will be home but me tomorrow afternoon, will crank it then.

lol, it's all good, I know quite a few that have had good experiences as well. I think as far as processors go, I had the UMC-1 when it hit, it was sent back and forth 3 times, never was fixed, I lost out on shipping 3 times to them, almost 300$. My xpa-5 lost a channel, had a local service place fix it (that was actually pretty painless, emo paid for everything) My XPA-2 had the front panel go out and my airmotiv 6's had an amp go out, it never got changed, it went into the garbage. I never did like them lol.
So I've not had the best experience lol. I couldn't say how good or not the XMC-1 is, it's lacking hdmi 2.0 and thats enough of a no-go for me but thats not to say its the same for everyone as I plan on getting 4K everything pretty soon and would need it.

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

I honestly don't think it's in your head at all...more like your ears. Gotta trust them I'm sure they must be fantastic and I'm really curious to hear them since you're making such a big move.
I selfishly wish you could have done an A/B before selling off the 212s...would have been a good read...but not surprised by the fast sale.
Perhaps a future GTG for us east coasters might be in order to hear your new JBL, along with someone's 215 and 212

Nice! I am looking to do the same with T8's.

Side note for all tonight. Greatest moment we can have in building our systems. Obviously I own a "lesser" system than most here. I would make the top 5 of weakest systems. But after we got our big screen and PJ up we watched Need for Speed tonight and I caught myself 100% immersed in the movie. I was like, "Dang! I didn't think about work tomm, bills, things I need to do, etc." Just totally immersed. I even forgot what day it was briefly with too! Happy days my friends All of this even happened coming from a decent plasma with deep blacks, like no visible letter box blacks. And we certainly had bright ones with this budget PJ.

Will get better with returning the BenQ 1070 and replacing with a BenQ W7000.

All perceived reality is in our heads, there is no reality besides what our brains process and tells us. Can be pretty scary for those with schizophrenia.

The M2's are incredible speakers from all the information that I can find on them. Many seem to think they are better than the Everest line. The M2's would be my speaker of choice if they were not soooooo expensive...but the cost is driven by the pursuit of in room perfection not marketing.

A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free.

Today should be a good day. I am off work, wife is at work and kids at school. Going to go get a hair cut, run by my parents house to take them out to lunch then run home and watch Need for Speed and crank the system! Afterwards play some video games and maybe watch a blu ray concert. To top it off tomorrow college football really gets going and I get to watch my Buckeyes.

Lol...I think you guys are at -9000, so I'll add a +9000 to level match everything again.

I know adding this boost will cut into the power reserves of the inukes, but I have one inuke3000dsp bridged for each 228 so I am thinking I will be good up to reference.

Any thoughts?
What is a LS12 slope? Is that something intrinsic to the iNukes? I saw @Archaea mention doing something similar with his subs, but I'm not following? Please explain.

Shame this didn't get to happen in your space @Gooddoc .
