I think it will help to listen to my LSR708 / Revel combo system when you come down to my place again. If you remember, when we tested the SCLs the Revel F208s were doing side duty with the Revel...

The Trinnov / JBL piece, the SDP75, does not have the equivalent of an SDEC built in. The Trinnov version has their own EQ, but it does not carry over to the JBL piece.

I think this is totally fair, and one of the reasons I have not done a full Synthesis calibration yet - we are constantly changing out demo gear. However, that is one of the reasons we are seriously...

For reference, Kevin Voecks at Revel recommends a solid 150 wpc for the F208s. That typically means a separate amp rated at 150 watts per, not a 9 channel receiver that is supposedly rated at that...
