I'm going to try the JTR 212HT (2015 models)
Ahh...missed it! Glad to see someone here got it though.
@dgage Can you try to bring it with you when you come? I'd love to see how it sounds with my lcr.

I'm not a doctor, so pretend gooddoc said this instead of me.

Give it a shot, I want to know how you like it. I really think it'll make a positive difference when you have your hands on physical sliders/knobs that easily make the sound the way you like it.
I'm an anesthesiologist, so it's safe to say I NEVER try the medicine I give. Relying on patient feedback ensures the longevity of my life, my patient's life, and my medical license .

So yes, this message is approved by gooddoc

The word "DOES" comes in if you are living on a Budget ;-).

This is the first time I am hearing that the 215HTs do not foot the bill. I was thinking if I was to get the 215HTs then for my budget I would be all set for Sound Nirvana :-) :-).

so there is hope for me yet to pick up a pair at some point next year for a slight discount.

It does look like the 212s along with some Good SUBS are the way to go then because of their efficiency. 4.6K is easier on the pocket than 7K.

No wonder the Ascend Towers Sell out even before they have been made and people wait 2 months to get them.

Perhaps the same for the Salks and the Philharmonics.

Wonder if the 228s compete with them given the fact that they can go down to 35-40 Hz. Also the difference in sound between a Horn and a RAAL Tweeter.

"BTW did want to say that college is more expensive than you think so hopefully no one is blowing the college fund on these" LOL.

Do I need that much power for the 212s...nope, but how often does need play a role in this thread?

Edit - I honestly know I won't ever use the 2,400w at 4 ohms that this amps puts out for the 212HT-LPs. It really is more about wanting a D-Sonic amp and being future proof. By getting the maximum wattage for LCR, I won't have to worry about upgrading my amp in the future. That was the thought behind my purchase, not 2,400w on a set of 212s. I honestly don't play that loud. Then again, now I can DJ my kids school dances and run everyone out of the gym if I ever wanted to...but that's more of a dream sequence than anything that might happen in real life.
David, I have been running the Lab (2100 watts/ch) for LCR for a while now. I have pushed the amp all the way to get the -4dB lights to flicker and it is soooo insanely loud in the room but still clear. I can honestly say I can get the 3OS to hit their limits before the 212HT with this amp. Of course that is in large part to the fact that I listen to music with approx +15dB house curve.

Plus now if you do decide to PEQ some extra dB in you have lots of headroom. My only advice is be careful, if the room is treated you can really be listening louder than you think!

what subs are you running?

Pre-Pro: Emotiva XMC-1, DSP: Mini DSP 2x4 balanced
Amplifier: Sunfire TGA7400, Lab Gruppen FP10000Q
Speakers: JTR Noesis 212HT (LCR), JTR Slant 8's (surrounds), 3 Orbit Shifter LFU's
Sources: PS3, HTPC, Dish Network
Projector: Epson 8350
Screen: Seymour XD AT 138" diagonal 16:9

Did you just say that your 212HT outrun 3 Orbit Shifters? I'm not surprised of the capability of the 212s but that you found the limits of THREE (3!!!) Orbit Shifters.
@RMK! , @Gooddoc - Can we get a consult stat? I think @lbrown105 has an affliction and I'm worried it's contagious!

I thought it was bad enough I caught a mild case of whatever infects @N8DOGG .
