Just received my order from Jeff (thanks!): 3x228HT for LCR in dedicated HT. Also received 2xSingle 8HT-LP for sides, slanted 8's for rears (7.1 system).
These are replacing B&W N804's and HTM3 across the front. I'm remodeling my HT (perf screen, columns, soffits, stage, etc), so it will be a few weeks before I have the whole system in and dialed in with Audyssey.
But I couldn't resist (and also had to make sure they survived shipping) doing an abbreviated A-B between my B&W fronts and the JTR 228's. So using an Integra 9.9 pre with Cinenova 7x300w amp, Audyssey tuned for the B&W's and did not re-run Audyssey for JTR's, also used my current in-walls for sides/rears, not the new JTR's.
Watched scenes from The Hobbit, The Avengers both on BD, Rock of Ages on HBO, an American Idol DVR recorded. Watched/listened to all three with 228's, then all three with the B&W 804/HTM3 so just a memory listening test, not scientific at all.
JTR excelled on vocals big time on all 3 sources, could actually hear actors breathing, so vocals bested the B&W setup. Did need to turn up hte sub (JR Audo F113) a bit, and also did not re-run the sub setup either. JTR's noticeably brighter, but played crips highs at higher volumes. A different sound than the B&W but for me an overall improvement in my room.
B&W more subtle, but overall preferred the JTR's for sure for home theater which my room is 100%. I think that when I finish the room (also will have more room treatment than currently), all 7 JTR's installed, Audyssey and sub management calibrated, it will be quite satisfying
