Anyone has Tidal.. Try Steve Gadd Band (70 Strong). Play track 1 (Foam Home). Turn it up!! Well if you guys are into Jazz. Especially drums.. That track will bring out the mid bass in our speakers.

I would like to get Deezer. I just don't listen to all that much music. I will be honest I have not been out in my theater in 3 weeks. I have been so busy at work not to mention my projector is giving me problems. I am waiting for a deal on a yearly package on a streaming service and then I am in!!

Nice.. Curious to how Deezer compares to Tidal. Tidal expanded a lot on their music library. Still streaming through them since January.
I too get busy with work at times and don't have time for the hobbies. But work does come first to support it. Haha..

Hey guys -

I'm considering getting JTR 228's for my LCR's. I currently have GoldenEar Triton 2's and a SuperCenter XL in my set up. What are everyone's thoughts on this possible upgrade? Should I just hold out to find a deal on some 212's instead? Or will the 228's be more than enough. My room is only about 15 feet x 22 feet.

Keep in mind, my 4 surrounds are also GoldenEar Supersat 60's.
I also currently have 2 SVS PB13 Ultras.

Probably 75% movie use.

I seen you posted in the classifieds for Rays 228's. For 75% movie use, the 228's would be just fine. We just discussed this a couple of weeks ago and some of the guys have tested both the 212's and 228's and for movie use they were almost identical. That is a great deal on the 228's and I think you would be very happy with them.

228's will definitely be plenty.

Thats what I was thinking too. I think if I had the ability to put the speakers behind my screen, I would splurge for the 212's. The main reason I'd want to pick up the 228's would be for an upgrade in my center channel. Don't get me wrong, GoldenEar has some fantastic speakers, but I think I can definitely improve

Now since I have not heard any JTR's in person, do these sound at all similar to the Klipsch RF 7ii's? I say this because thats the last "horn" speaker I had some time with, and to be honest, I wasn't a fan when I compared it to the ribbon tweeter of the Triton's.
