Rgards,

The Single 8HT would be a pretty significant upgrade and the Noesis 228HT is another step above that.

With the price drop and the holiday sale the Noesis 228HT is just $80 more than the original 2013 pre-order price.

Hi folks,

I'm looking to upgrade the LCR speakers in my 3.1 set up in my multi-use room from some older Def Tech Studio Monitor 350s and a Def Tech Procenter 2000 that were chosen because they fit my old shelving within a few millimeters. I now have a bit more room and am looking to see if there is something that would give me a bit better sound. The space I have in the av cabinets are:

L/R - 16"D x 14"H x 14"W
Center - 16"D x 13"H x 30"W.

I was thinking of using a Noesis 228HT as the center and Single 8HTs or Single 8HT-LPs as the L/R. It seems like there might be a few 2014 or earlier 228HTs for sale. Has anyone heard both the older HTs and the new 2017HTs? I think saw a post by Jeff stating that the 2017's can go an octave lower, but I've read so many posts lately that I'm not 100% on this. Trying to decide if it is worth spending almost double for the new 2017 model. Also, has anyone heard both the Single 8HT and the LP? What's the difference in the sound?

I haven't heard the new model, but I have some of the first 228HTs and I could not be happier. I also have 4 Slanted 8HTs as surrounds.

The 228HTs cured my upgraditis. Even several years later, whenever I have the house to myself and get to let them crank they never fail to give me goose bumps and put a smile on my face.

There is just something about the effortless power that makes listening to them feel like a movie theater in a way that the speakers I had before JTR never could.

Whether you go used or new, you will not be disappointed.

I agree with Jedirun, I bought three 228 HTRs for LCR about a year ago and also could not be happier. To avoid wanting to have the itch to upgrade, I went with the upgraded HTR model. Also, I am not aware of a newer version as ones like I have with the wooden horns. I also use Slanted 8HT-LPs for surround and Atmos. You will be extremely pleased with them. If you get to Sacramento, you are welcome to hear them in person.
