XLR and RCA should sound the same. It could be some quirk with your equipment (i.e. impedance differences), or perhaps clipping. As long as you're not clipping, re-running Audyssey should clean up any differences.

Does anyone have any good suggestion for surround speakers to pair with 228s? I was looking at Klipsch's pro-cinema series KPT-8000M, but I think I may want something that doesn't have quite as large of a footprint (I'm looking to hide them in columns). Any ideas on something reasonably priced (The Klipsch's were about $280/ea shipped).

I've never heard them, but these look promising:

Reaction Audio has a slanted style 8" coax coming out that uses an excellent quality Radian driver. I bought two pairs if them to use with my 228's and they are half the price if the Slant 8's. I would of loved to buy two pairs of Slant 8'a but my wife would have killed me if I spent 4 grand in surrounds....lol


Scroll down to post #89 to see a 3D sketch up, the speaker will have 1/2" round over corners all round and come with a magnetic grill.
Official Reaction Audio Thread
This speaker uses a Radian driver that cost about $240 and a $100+ crossover, so when you factor in a finished cabinet in satin black it seems to be an excellent value with high quality components.

the clipping in the vids is the input mic not the speakers, they have stupid output for their price/size
these were running full range from a Yamaha rx-a3000 in pure direct mode

Wow...I have been considering the Volt 10's in the slanted enclosure because I could get 4 for less than 1/2 the price of 4 Slanted 8's. They sound pretty darn good.

On-ceiling yes.

Same here.
But I do want them to keep up with my Noesis', so that might cost.

Not trying to tell anybody how much to invest in Atmos speakers but if you look at the Atmos white paper, they are treated as surrounds. So whatever you invest in surrounds, the Atmos speakers should be of similar quality/capability.

I am half way there. I have 4 slanted 8's. However if I decide to go the way of Atmos, I think I will do in celling speakers/coaxials. I don't think I will want cabs on my ceiling. I will certainly wait till Atmos is in full swing and see what is available.

Haha, not all running at this point...but as soon as I posted that, I knew I would get some kickback I am still in a holding pattern for atmos, but will likely cross that bridge whenever the DTS variant decides to start being badged on new Pre/pro's. I will keep enjoying my relatively pedestrian system until that point in time

JC507jc has triple 8s. I have 212 Noesis. I'm not sure who might have the 228s. I heard Archaea's and I would have zero reservation recommending them depending on your needs and plans. I think it's something you definitely need to find a way to hear them.

Do you plan on using for music only or what combination?

I spoke with Jeff about a month ago. I'll need in-ceiling and he said he'd work with me to solve the need for Atmos. I need to crawl up in my attic to see what size of box I'll be able to fit in there. It's just too hot in Houston this time of the year to do that right now. I'm a little worried about the depth as I have one wall (left) that's an exterior wall with a sloped roof. I may have to look at something like the CDT-5800-c from Klipsche. I'm hoping I can get a S8 up there to match my surrounds.

So hopefully, this will solve my power issue for my 3 JTR 215RT's

That D-sonic is a very nice amp.

I have a forum member (JF56) coming over for a demo this weekend. He has N-212's and an OS (he is considering another ). It will be interesting to get his take on the 215RT's bass wise and overall vs his excellent setup. I'll encourage him to post impressions here.

Looks like he has something close to your prior room. Will be cool to hear his impressions.

Congrats man, be ready to need no upgrade, for any main, for a LONG time coming. That thing should allow the 215 to just absolutely cruise, even with some LFE action mixed in
