1M or 1.5M....I would feel like I'm ripping you off...I'd feel too bad.

Yea.. ATMOS is well worth it. Btw, I'm definately going up to 2016 Axpona show next year.. Funny, Axpona registration called to see if I forgot to sign up this year.. And told them will not be attending. And yes for 2016. Curious to what setup Jeff will put up next year.

Fruits? nope. I am a man. I eat steak and weaker men's souls on a daily basis. Be careful where you tread sir

I have seen Rob's incredible theater in the HToM as well as all the updates he usually shares here on the JTR thread. I know it well. Probably better than I should having never even set foot in the state of California (thank god). Ok just kidding again..... Well not really. Any state that can elect Arnold to an official government position is on something I have never heard of before....

Thanks for the nice comments on the HT and for tearing down the State of my birth . Glad you have found peace and contentment in NC and like Home Theaters, to each his own. To me, my room isn't really an incredible HT like dbecks or doublewings or even that "high end" system in Detroit "Le Petit Trianon". My room is very much an ultra amateur self-built movie room with mismatched furniture, random acoustical treatments and average (at best) video quality. Thanks to that humble, hard working guy from Chicago, it has better (ok much better ) than average audio quality and quantity (in that order).

I started out in this hobby due to some unusual life circumstances that required me to be home more than most my age and so the HT became a way to fill that time. It has turned into a bit of an obsession fueled by this Forum and specifically this Thread. I have met some interesting and very nice people along the way and that has added to my enjoyment of the hobby. It's hard to find time to talk to people and it is even harder to find people with common interests. I consider many of you here friends and we share the hobby as common ground despite our geographic and socio-economic differences. Sorry for the OT musings but I just wanted to acknowledge that it is nice to stop in the thread and read your comments and goings on. A nice diversion and one I look forward to each day.

I did a re-read of this and made a couple of changes. It does sound very "California" in tone and my inner New Yorker finds that disturbing.

I couldn't agree more with your "musings." I don't feel like I found AVS, I feel like it found me......Haha. It opened up possibilities that I never knew I had, and long ago when the budget was much smaller, AVS was all it took to vault me into the HT space. Ah the good ole days when I remember my thinking, "Well beast, you just bought this house, and you only have one TV, so go buy another one." That thinking molded into "Well maybe a projector would be even cheaper than another big screen TV." Boy was I ever wrong......haha. The first projector yes, was cheaper, but all things since then? Good lord I don't even want to think about it.

And no, I had no intentions to berate your state of domicile. I am very rarely serious in my comments on AVS, and that whole post was just me foolin' around I think you knew that tho.... I honestly turn the mirror to myself and look at all the crap-ola my own state is dealing with and feel truly embarrassed at times to embrace the fact I pay taxes here.... Indeed, to each his own.

Ok all kiddn aside.. . Yes, Robs HT is beautifully done. And how well every thing is put in place. I still can't get that ATMOS demo out of my mind. I can't replicate it with my HT. No matter how much I try to convince myself I don't need ATMOS. Seems like I'm missing something in my setup now. Also all the room gain he has in the bass coming from the 215's. Lots off bass but very accurately controlled.. Nice..

Yep! 4 of em in my lowly system. Not sure I would make it into the cool kids club round here though. I would need to add at least 4-18's to my ONLY two Submersives lol.

Will be digging up some more 80's memories to hear for the 'first' time....

I freaking love doing Phil Collins demos! I bought a few of his. The vocal clarity, the whole package. Jack it up! Also I know it may sound cheese ball to some but Kenny G music sounds absolutely amazing on JTR's!

Also if you never had listened to the song "Sail" by Awolnation you are missing out on a great bass demo. Turn up the sub trim at least 6db, maybe 10-12db and let her rip! The raw power is smile inducing

Forgot about Sail...Need to play that...I first heard it on the flying man youtube video years ago...which I think made the song...sad that video is better than the official video.

Just sitting here wondering if a slanted 8 sitting on top of my 212HTs aimed at ceiling would work like an atmos speaker module I am thinking that the only thing that makes it an atmos up-firing module is the aiming degree/angle for sound reflection from the ceiling. Hmmmm????

Easy to test as up firing Front Height speakers using DTS Neo:X or Dolby Pro Logic IIz and, you wouldn't have to commit to Atmos first.

You should come over and hear Atmos for yourself. Try before you buy ...

Do slanted 212's on top of your 212's.

I don't see why not...if reflective point on ceiling hits your mlp, it should work. The avr should set the proper delay.

Hey guys, any of you have tried refinishing your JTR speakers ? Thinking of changing the look of one pair of my slanted 8's so I can have my wife approve the look and put them in the living room as a 2-Channel system haha ! The finish on my speakers are the normal black finish which is a bit textured. I'm thinking of wrapping it in vinyl or some kind of laminate , maybe even wood veneer. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks !
