Each JTR 215RT has the output capability of 3-4 Watchdog subs (depending on amplification) which cost $9,800 each (plus $4,000 each for The Controller ). So, two JTR 215RT's equal around $82,800-$110,400 worth of Wilson subs. Also, the Wilson subs are 85 dB efficient. Total cost for the JTR room was only around $28,000.
Obviously, those $45,000 equipment stands made a profound difference. You can only hear it with high-end cables, though.

If you're talking about the XMC, I think that it's HDMI 1.4b, not 2.0

It is 1.4b not 2.0. They say it can be upgraded to 2.0 with a new hdmi board but they are generally full of crap, so who knows ( and personally, I could care less, I'll never buy Emotiva anything, ever again)

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

I know a lot of you guys are into two channel listening especially those running the 215 full range. My question is have any of you tried the free Dirac 2 channel correction? I am finding it is really doing some things that I have not seen or heard in other auto RC's or anything I have been able to do manually. At this point I don't feel the frequency response is really any better than what I can do with the mini dsp and manual PEQ for mains, but the impulse response is way beyond what I have been able to achieve manually or with other auto corrections. Flipping the switch from having Dirac on and off is dramatic difference in perceived sound even when the FR is adjusted the same. I have it so that I flip from Dirac on in Direct mode on the pre-pro to Dirac off and stereo mode. In this test you can flip from one setting to another during playback and the FR and levels are matched. With Dirac it is more focused and you can tell the difference blind everytime ( I got 20 out of 20 in a blind test on whether Dirac was engaged or disengaged as long as I was asked listening to the same song as it was flipped on and off)


Maybe there is something to all of this mixed phase filtering? I have previously posted some impulse response readings at the MLP, it even has a nice effect on impulse response in the back of the room (attached). I highly suggest trying the free trial if you are into two channel listening. I am converting quickly!! And all of this is suggested to make your JayteeARE's sound even better than they already do!!
