I think the #1
issue I had with the 215's, was the distance of my first row from the speakers. Being only 8.5-9 feet back didn't allow them to open up to their full potential in my room, IMO. I feel 100% that these need a minimum of 10, maybe 12 feet to really sound good. When I sat that far back, they had a different sound to me.
issue was, they were too big for my room. The size of the 212's and the Cat-12's are much better for my room.
In summary, if you have a smaller room and love the sound of your 212's....and are 80-100% HT, stick with them and address any mid bass issues you might have. Just my opinion after spending the last month and a half stressing over this hobby... lol
