I'm going to be out and about this weekend demo'ing some other speakers at stores and was wondering if anyone around the DMV area has a set of JTR speakers/subs they would be willing to demo.

Speaker wise I'm interested in the JTR Triple 8 or 12 speakers, and sub wise basically any of the Captivator or Orbit Shifter.

If anyone around here is willing to demo theirs please PM me or reply here and I will get back to you, thanks!

I've checked out Gramaphone, IQ AV, and Evolution. First one is in Columbia, MD, the other 2 are in NOVA.

One more bump, but it doesn't look like this is going to happen frown.gif. I just don't think I could spend $5k+ on something I have never heard prior frown.gif

I liked it a lot, by far the best of the 3 places I went to. The guy James was very helpful.

The guys at Evolution were kind of dicks IMO. They basically acted as if anything they don't sell is not good at all and just have a condescending attitude. I mentioned to them I had a Denon receiver that was going to be powering my speakers and he was like "oh your receiver won't be able to power these speakers (the ones I was demo'ing) like they are powered now, these are getting a clean 100 watts per channel." Then he flat out said that Marantz (what they sell) is the Lexus while Denon is the Toyota. He had no clue that my receiver was the top of the line Denon that retails for $2500. They just had bad attitudes like that in general. I did like the Paradigm speakers there though. They were not willing to budge on prices at all.

IQ they were very helpful and I was there for over 2 hours. I learned a lot too and they were willing to work with prices and try to work out a deal.

If I can't find a place to at least hear the JTR speakers within probably the next week or 2 I'm most likely going to purchase my B&W stuff from IQ.
