The new toy anticipation is probably one of the things that keeps us upgrading, lol.
Thank you....it was just about 7 hours ago I talked with Jeff and it feels like it was forever ago. Man I can't wait.

I think it is because the center of the speaker is equidistant from the floor and both corner walls. REW's room sim is showing the same dip. It might be the sympathetic vibrations, though. I hadn't thought of that. I wonder if my wife will be sympathetic when I tell her she has to help me get them off the stands.

I'll work with what I have to get the best sound from them. My current LCR speakers are McIntosh, 2 SL-6 and HT-1 for center. They served me well but it's time to move on. My plan for the 215RT's is to run them full range (for now) and see what that sounds like. With my processor (Yamaha CX-A5000) if you say no subs it will route LFE and everything below the x-over to the L/R speakers...so I'll play around with that for now.


Yeah that is pretty narrow but I bet you can make it work. Make sure you have a way to eq the bass on the 215's to your liking when running them full range.

Hmmm never heard McIntosh speakers.

Are you setting them up in another room?

Nah...going to sell them cheap to a friend. I've had them for years.

What kind of eq would you suggest?

A minidsp or an inuke with dsp would be great. The inuke 6000 dsp will give significantly more headroom than the 3000 dsp, I'm using the 3000 dsp though since 99 percent of the time the output is more than enough and I don't want to spend any money right now.

The inuke dynamic eq function is so great at setting up a house curve to your liking. Here is an example:



It's endlessly tweakable. You can select how steep you want the house curve, where it starts, how much boost, etc. and just keep experimenting on the fly until you settle on what you like.

Yeah, I know lots of guys like the inukes. My only issue is my equipment is in another room and the inuke doesn't have a trigger input and it would be a pain to manually power it on/off. Do you have a way to remote turn on?

Wire the trigger to the low voltage side and switch the hot leg of the outlet on the high voltage side. Done .

We have really similar rooms, although mine is 13 feet wide and Iève got the 215s. You will have no issues at all man, I really dont understand why guys think just because the speaker is big, it needs some giant space to sound its best....
Thats simply not true. You will be rockin out and loving it!

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

I would say the definition and sharpness of the picture is only shortly behind my TV. I am very happy in that regard. I am not a huge videophile and I am 100% satisfied for what I paid. Thanks for the deal bro I think in a few years there will be some great PJ development with 4K and such. Perhaps what is now a high end JVC will come down considerably. I have to send my 5 month old Oppo BD103D back for optical drive repair...sigh...I have had 3 other "cheap" blu ray players and nothing ever went wrong. I buy a $600 one and this happens. I know all electronics can have issues. Even a Theta or Datasat processor...

I know what you mean You beat me. But I know in regards to performance I am high up there with JTR mains and Seaton subs. I think of it like going with 215's or 212's and 10-12 subs is like just adding a turbo on an already high performance engine. Just in regard to SQ and getting to the BMS 4593...I will scoop some 212's up in a few years hopefully. But hey I get absolute zero distortion, speakers can play anything thrown at them, louder than I can stand, the submersives literally threw dishes off the counter the other night and my wife gave me "the look." I will have to tone down the low shelf filter. Damn that Xmen First class beach scene! They sound pretty dang good too. TBH I don't get the gotta have some music feeling like people say with the 212's but a nice consolation.

I thought about this decision for a long time and your comments/thoughts of these were important to hear. I was all over the board in trying to decide which speakers were the right ones for me and my space. My initial thoughts were the 212HT's...then I went to 3 215RM's, then the 215RT's, then Seaton Catalysts then back to the 215RT's. After all is said and done, I feel good with the decision I made and am looking forward to hearing them in my room.

Will certainly let you know my impression and will probably be asking you questions.
You sound exactly like me prior to me buying the 212s. I was lurking on these forums literally for 5 years before finally deciding to buy the 212s when it first came up. Every speaker sounded like it was 'the best out there'.. and any decision you make would 'put a huge smile across your face' haha... it was truly hard to make a decision... I had to go thru lots of GTGs and reviews to finally settle on JTRs... they can't be beat in terms of value for money from their Noesis on, in my mind, extremely hard to beat in terms of SQ, and maybe impossible to beat in terms of Efficiency...

I think you're be a happy camper for a long time to come...
