Jeff showed pictures on Facebook awhile back of someone taking delivery of 210's, but who that was is a mystery

Also, I have a 160" 2.37:1 wide AT screen and have the current speakers right at the edge of 16:9 image. Do I do the same with the 12LFs or I would need to keep them further wide. Any help in this is really appreciated.
Thanks

Hi Sen, that sounds like plenty of separation for the T12's and as far as toe in goes, I ran my T12's both ways and didn't notice much difference. With the coaxial compression driver they have a wide dispersion pattern and so toe in isn't necessary although it may be preferred.

Don't forget about the 215RM as I really like that speaker too.

Sounds like you have a real nice setup Sen, I haven't heard the T12 so can't speak to that but I concur with RMK! in terms of those coaxials having a wide dispersion, which means (especially if you don't toe-in) that you will likely need a well treated room to tame reflections. Just something to think about but based on your equipment you might already have this covered.

I was going to recommend doing 228 for a great 5.x setup, since it's only a few hundred more than the S8. I've heard both 228 and 212...the 228 are great with music...especially considering your space. As everyone tends to realize, 'your ears will give up before they do.'

Here's the numbers (before any discounts):
5.1 = All 5 228HT = $6500
5.1 = LCR 228HT + 2 S8 = $5898
5.1 = LCR 212HT + 2 S8 = $8895

I think the $2400-$3000 you save by going with the 228 option will give you the best value and help in getting a pair of subs....like the Cap 2400. You can always add a pair of S8 for 7 channel setup later on as they do come up for sale...but you won't miss it when you have a solid 5 channel setup.

If music is a huge priority, another option is a pair of 210RT for LR and a 228 for center. I'm sure a pair of these will be great for 2-channel listening and not having to worry about needing any subs during music, and possibly even movies...depending on how much bass you want (you will want more as the itch grows stronger)
I'm leaning towards Reaction Audio CX-10s/8s for surrounds. Still haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet.

I've been seriously considering the 210RT, especially since my room isn't huge and they'd be great for two channel music. I emailed Jeff about using the 228 as a center and he replied, "I'm actually about to introduce a Noesis 210RM (reference monitor) that has the horn in the center and is a perfect match for the Noesis 210RT." So I guess we'll wait and see.

Thank you for your response. So based on that I am interpreting that it should be ok to place the speakers where the current speakers are. I guess I will test the toe in and out to see what works. I did the calculation based on the JTR's dispersion angle of 70 degrees and as my first row is 11 ft from the speakers and the 2nd row is 17 ft, it came out that a slight toe in of 1.4 in would help to cover both the rows. Anyway calculations are one thing and the room reaction is another so I will test it and see. Thank you for your thoughts.

Thank you. I do have all the walls treated including the walls behind the speakers/screen. So it sounds like I should be ok but I will run it as suggested both with toe in and without and see which one works. The pain is that the screen is wall to wall so without someones help I cannot do it on my own . So need to get some help while doing it so can't work on it tonight.

Thanks again for the thoughts. I will report back if I have any problems.

BTW, I notice that the speaker terminals are little different. Can some one tell me to which posts I need to connect the - and + wires. Thanks again for the help.

-Sen

I have the T8's toed in quite a bit. I felt it was a significant difference compared to not much toe in. But it's all subjective

Wonder how the JTR slanted 8 would work as atmos speakers that sit on top of the mains and are angled to fire up and into the room?

Keep in mind, the controls on the left on the screen pics control both left and right speakers, I don't have to do the same to band 2 but I can if I want even more tweakability. I can do something like this where I boost the higher bass more with the left side and the lower bass with the right - remember, both eq's affect both left and right speakers. This is on the BP setting so now I have a Q knob to change the amount of frequencies affected.




Man I love the inuke dsp. It's complete control of the bass sound at an instant.



Before anyone says anything about my inputs being higher than the outputs (happens every time I post a inuke dsp screen shot), it doesn't matter. When I crank it up the output lights still come on before the inputs.

Is there a trick to getting a nice round number for the peq? I tried typing in a number but it doesn't work.

Also not sure what attack and release are. I am guessing the ratio changes the boost applied as volume goes up?

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.
you are being humble though. At this level the room tuning means so much and I know you are in to that stuff. What might look slightly lesser from an equipment perspective could be way more with good room tuning. Glad you are enjoying to that level. That's what this is all about!

Haha! I'm not really a lucky guy . I'm all for a blind test though, that's for sure!

Remember though, speakers ain't amps

Now I really do want to continue ribbing everyone about the M2's , but I have to wait to get them in my room before I really get going , just in case they don't impress in my room like the demos did. I want to limit any potential backtracking, lol.

What I've heard so far is epic though. The clarity and realism is simply in another class from anything I have personally heard. Lots I haven't heard though, so take that with a grain of salt. And I've yet to hear them in my own room, so toss some more salt over your shoulder.

And that is the real kicker right there. Will they translate to my room? I took the leap because they are probably one of the few speakers out there that are designed to be custom tuned to most any room environment and I have yet to put a speaker in my room that didn't sound "reasonably" close to what I heard in other rooms. So I'm hopeful.

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.
I totally get it. I posted about a new piece and wham my JTR brothers starting killing it! Lol. I have heard many have had bad experience with Emo. I hear even worse horror with Onkyo. I mean oink flap. All good bros just wish
me luck!
