Was also asking if anyone would recommend going to the 228 for L/C/R vs the 212? Any other JTR recommendations (minus sub) for 5.0?
I think it depends on what your priorities are, if you were using the mains for almost strictly HT use I would most defiantly recommend going with the 228HT's and some the cash you would have spent on the 212HT's and get the best subs that you can afford. To put it into perspective for the price of three 212HT's you could have three 228HT's and a Orbit Shift or Captivator S2!
Personally I would use the Single 8's or Slant 8's as surrounds. They have a less focused sound stage and would probably work better as surrounds, of course that's not to say the 228HT's wouldn't work as surrounds.
I would have loved to have gotten the 212HT's but with the size of my room and the fact that it's basically 100% movie use it just wasn't worth it too me.
I'm extremely jealous that you get to hear the 212HT's!
