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?
