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

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).

Has anyone installed the 228HT's in a baffle wall, thinking of doing this for my rumpus room/come home theatre room? Just wondering if this is something they are suited to, and if so, any tips for installation/build?

I thought some here might be interested in seeing one of my HTPC's with a myriad of HDMI inputs (supporting up to 4K) and outputs.

How are you able to make it work with other sources? What is the interface? Are you using JRiver? What do you think of that compared to a prepro?

Don't tease us...give us some details. Which HDMI input cards are you using, what sources are you routing through the HTPC? I am getting ready to do something like this with my current HTPC so I can route everything through JRiver MC and use Dirac Live software for room correction.

You can still use your 7702, but instead of Audyssey or manual EQ you can use Dirac Live, Acourate or Audiolense for DRC while routing all sources initially through the PC and then on to the 7702 with Audyssey turned off. Not sure though if there is a solution for Atmos or Auro systems

The cards are from HDFury and Blackmagic Design plus an MSI GTX 960 graphics card (HDMI 2.0). I'm still in the process of testing. HDFury messed up on their programming and is sending replacement cards soon. JRiver works with capture cards and is working on supporting the Blackmagic cards. These only have a latency of 1-2 frames which is sufficient for use with a PS3 or XBox.

The goal is to be able to connect Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick, XBox, PS3, set top box/DVR etc. to the HTPC and play through JRiver with tablet/phone control. One would use the native apps for the various input devices. This allows one to leverage the advanced DSP of JRiver and use room correction like Audiolense, Accourate, or Dirac Live for all sources.

I'm still uncertain about how the Blackmagic capture cards will deal with DD or DD+, the primary audio formats used by the latest HDMI sticks like Chromecast. JRiver can decode so its just a question if it passes through.

dlbeck already uses HDMI input with a Hauppauge Colossus card and his DirectTV DVR. He uses the DirecTV app for controlling playback through JRiver to his 14 channel system. You can't do that with anything on the market except for Trinnov or Datasat and those don't support the automatic EQ switching like JRiver. $2500-$4000 for a complete audio/video system vs $19,000+. Hauppauge is releasing the Colossus 2 card in April. I hope to check it out, too.

I am not a computer guy at all however I love the idea of the HTPC and is certainly on the back burner. I will talk with you in KC about it if we find some time.

I've been using a htpc for over a decade now and still love it. I just use it as a cable box (ceton Infinitv 6) and a media streamer with XBMC and Media Browser. That being said, I know that there is still so much more that it can do. i have to look into J. River at some point and the thought of using it a s a pre/pro fascinates me.
