Hey guys, this is a little side note. I have JTR's so follow the thread but was looking to get a full size stand alone equipment rack for all the gear and consoles hooked up. I would like to get one with tempered/darkened glass front to minimize light effects. Will be on outside for now and then later moved into closet space. Any recommendations and company or site to look at for them? Any sponsors here to get good deal? Any specific things I should be looking for. Right now using Outlaw amp but otherwise no extremely heavy gear but there is always the future so want this to last a long time.


thanks
- Rob

Wait till the bass hits and her stuff fall off and break… you might have to sleep on the couch for a few days afterwards!
Oh no, it is well know around here that things break. She is playing with fire decorating my speakers. The funny thing is she now considers them her speakers now that I finished the theater room. Funny huh?

I don't know of any sponsors as I don't see adds anymore on here. But you could repost here http://www.avsforum.com/forum/15-gen...ia-game-rooms/or here http://www.avsforum.com/forum/32-the...s-accessories/

I just, literally in the last few days discovered little kids singing on those Talent Shows.

MY GOSH!! I am convinced now that the best audiophile voices are from KIDS... They should just make albums from KIDS...

And for those not convinced how special the 212s are when playing voices, play these songs from YouTube...

Hollie Steel


(the recorded volume on this is low, so might have to turn up by about 10dB compared to the one above)

Even money that Archae's gonna get goosebumps... (playing on the 212s)... Her voice is perfect in showing how seamless and smooth and haunting the 212's Coax is in the vocal range... I can't get this feel from any other speakers i have ever listened to...

Oh, just for the fun of it.. for the metal lovers out there:

My 212's are covered with pictures and candles. Oh well, she doesn't complain when I buy the stuff so I let it slide.

My Orbit Shifter got decorated for Christmas, but I'm not complaining since she lets me keep it in the living room.

Just watched maze runner for the first time. I was loving the 228s for every bit of this movie.
I'm still not use to how powerful the 228s are. They really brought the home theater to life and to a whole new level. I've watched a movie almost evey night since I have had them.

Anyway maze runner was a great movie overall and would definatly reccomend it to anyone. Great story, special effects, strong lows. And awsone audio.
I liked it enough I think I'll watch it again tonight

The only Christmas that you'll probably see is get them at the current price before there's a price increase!...lol
Jeff seems to be fairly consistent at raising prices a little each year. I know I bought my 228HT's at $999ea and now they are $1299ea.

Hahaha ya I can't arguee that!

Back then I was deciding if I wanted a 1099 build or buy 228s
Correct me if I'm wrong but was it u who quoted somewhere the 228s sounded more detailed and better tfor music? I might recall u saying the 1099 was 85% of the 228s. Obviously I decided to go all out and go for the 228„ and I'm glad I did. I'm still impressed by the build quality to besides the overall sound.
