See my post up above about the moving sale. Jeff posted it on the JTR site

Some people have heard both the 212 and 215 in the same room. Not sure giving up top end treble is the right term as they might extend to the same frequency but they don't sound identical by many account from 500HZ on up. Is it the waveguide size...the old metal horn on the 212....the cabinet size...mysterious AVS elfs...nobody knows

For Sale 3 (LCR) Yorkville U215 speakers

They also have different XO so that has to account for something.

I would agree with that and the difference in horns.

Pretty much my thoughts along with the crossover.

And we are talking slightly different but definitely in the same family. My aluminum horn 212 sounded a little brighter and the wood horn 215 sounded a little more laid back but still with the same level of detail. And by brighter, I don't mean fatiguing, my 212s are not fatiguing to me at all. By that point, I was used to the sound out of my 212s and preferred it over the 215 (but that 215RM midbass...oh that midbass) but if you weren't used to either, the 215 wouldn't dissappoint. Speakers are personal preference so even though I prefer the 212s and I know a few other do as well, I'm sure there are several that have heard both that like the 215. Really its like a Porsche or a Ferrari, I'd be ecstatic to have either but I'd prefer a Porsche Panamera Turbo Hybrid Executive (or whatever the hell that model is now).
