From what I read the JTRs have more of a dynamic sound and I read also from someone that they started listening louder after they switched to the JTR.
This is going to be a significant uprade money and effort wise so I want to make sure it will be worth it before I commit. Would it be a night and day difference in sound quality at the levels I listen to? I also noticed that they are fairly sensitive speakers. Does that mean I can sell my emotiva amplifiers and rely on the receivers to drive them without losing any of my current headroom? Any feedback would be appreciated.
Significant upgrade = yes
Night and Day Difference = depends
High Efficiency = separate amps not needed.
As gpmbc said, best to hear them in your room to get he full effect. I was able to do that prior to my first JTR Triple 12 buy and it sold me on them.
Good luck and good listening.
