I not knocking Jeff and Jtr as I had Triple 8'a and Jeff drove all the way to PA to help me set them up. If you need tons of output then yes they are one of the few options you have. But in normal sized to smaller rooms like mine (1800 cubic feet) many speakers provide me with the dynamics I need. After that step is completed its about sound quality. The compression driver in my triple 8's was very clear and non fatiguing but I never had interest in listening to music or popping in different movies that I've already seen just to experience them again. Long story short they just weren't emotionally involving and never moved me. Just very clinical and non fatiguing. Measurements only tell part of the story and when it comes to the Plats they are the only speaker that have unlimited dynamics and audiophile sound which I've found over my years in this hobby to be very rare. Demoing at a dealership or someone else's house or blind tests aren't the same as living with something and getting time to listen to them critically day after day to form an unbiased opinion.
