Really? So it uses the 12" drivers from the 212's but the compression driver from the 228's? Seems strange considering the 228HT's are already $1299ea.


I can see all of the posts now, "should I buy 228HT's or 212TT's for $_____ more".......lol

Changing the volume is DSP. People change the trim levels and then change the volume. That is DSP on top of DSP.

From Jeff on Facebook: "Close but no it doesn't use the same cd as the 228. TT= two-way, theater."

I guess that means it's not a tower, but a monitor with a lower f3. Maybe down to the 30hz-40hz range.

@jparker36
movies primarily = 228HT - - because with DD or DTS movie tracks, or quality digital tracks you'll be hard pressed (if not impossible) to tell the difference (in my experience)
music primarily = 212HT - - because it has a larger, more enjoyable soundstage for 2 channel use.


EDIT!!!
212TT -- what the? got me all confused - ignore my previous response. I hadn't caught yet it wasn't a typo or read the last page or so to see Jeff has a new speaker.

THOUGH??? maybe the same would apply - so I won't delete it.

The compression driver is better on the 212HT than the 228HT - but I found with more modern music recorded at high bit rates, or loseless tracks I didn't notice much - and the key difference was in the soundstage. With older music, or music not compressed at a higher bit rate I thought the 212HT's compression driver shone more with that. Maybe placebo, maybe bias -- who knows. But the 212TT - might give the larger soundstage of the 212HT - at some cost savings!

It'll be priced between the two. Something like 1799 or 1899. There's a big gap between the two and this will fill that.

He was talking about the new 212TT....and actually making a joke about a post a few above his. You sell your 228s and lose all touch of JTR fever!!!!

Carl was confused in his statement. The SubMersive's in thebland's room were the same as any other SubMersive. He must have been referring to the 2 channel QSC DSP-30 that was previously in the system that I had used to make sure the front/rear subs could blend together before calibration. Had we not run out of time, I would have put it back in and let Dirac handle just 1 subwoofer output as I got a much better seat-seat response than Dirac did the way it was run. I suspect it would have been better if it was measured from all seats, but the HF might have also not been as good at the main seats. This was more a limitation of how the RS20i allows subwoofer routing vs Dirac correction rather than any issue with Dirac.

A couple layers of DSP is always a bad thing, and if it's inserted where there isn't need or an additional analog-digital conversion, I wouldn't really worry about it so long as each step has a worthwhile purpose.

There are quite a few sellers right now for the 212s. I would jump on them. 7 Channel might still have his.
