I actually did a side by side (although not blind) with the original T8's vs my Ultima Studio2's in 2009 and felt that at moderate volume the clarity and detail were close, but the Revels were better sounding. If your GTG includes a bind test that would make it very interesting ... no?

It sure would, yes, although we decided against that due to the amount of attendees and speakers at the event. Does Jeff have an AVS forum moniker? I'd like to hear his new model.

Hi name ... Jeff Permanian but he doesn't visit here a lot. Prefers speaker building ...

Actually he is building a demo room and since he is now in-state, you should go visit.

Okay, I am going to email him now using the tech support email on the website since it will go straight to him. Thanks for the suggestions, RMK! I forgot he was rather local.

P.S. Where in WI is the demo room?

I'd love to visit that demo room. Report back if you go on your detailed honest thoughts on whatever you listen to.

Unfortunately I've not found a speaker that can excel at reproducing music accurately AND hit reference levels for HT without breaking a sweat. That's just me, though, and I have very high expectations.

Thanks!

I wanted to let you guys know that both Jeff Permanian from JTR and Mark Seaton will likely be attending our April 14th GTG. Jeff is planning on bringing the Triple 12HT-lp, and once Mark confirms he'll decide based on what he has available. Too cool!

Interested in hearing your thoughts on both the JTR's and the Seaton offerings. I think people are going to be pleasantly shocked.

Ok narrowed it down to the JTRs and Shos. Shos are cheaper. Are the JTRs worth the upgrade or is there a better option. 100% HT application only. Final thoughts?

I vote for the Shos........ but I've never heard JTRs.
The Shos are very efficient and play very loud without strain.
Dialog for HT is excellent.

Give the SHOs a try....send them back if you do not like them. Since I tried them they have been redesigned and there QC has improved before shipping to the customer. They do play loud and clear. I enjoyed them more than my previous 3 Aperion 6Ts across the front.
