I don't even own JTR products, but enjoy the daily updates/discussion in the thread.
Agreed. I think someone was a little excited when he decided to make this thread.
Can you imagine if someone made a thread for every time a manufacturer released a new speaker? Things would just be chaotic and a real mess. This thread should be merged with the main JTR one, especially with a ridiculous title touting a speaker to be "the best" even though this hobby is highly subjective. Not only that, but he finds it necessary to compare two completely different speakers than what this thread is about in the original post; two manufacturers that don't even compete with each other due to different design trade-offs. It gives the impression that someone has an agenda... Is Archaea now working for JTR? If so congrats, but you should put something in your signature. And you probably shouldn't be starting threads and advertising prices. I'm a Salk and Revel fanboy, but I don't start threads every time they release a new product giving price info and claiming they are the best speakers you haven't yet heard.
The main JTR thread has over 7000 posts and 450,000 views. It's not like no one sees it or it's dying. Just sayin'.

Apparently I missed all the action today, I'm glad I did, but I think I should be able to answer a couple of these questions more clearly publically.
My point in mentioning the Salk vs. JTR 212HT wasn't to cause a fight - not at all. My point was that everyone around here recognizes the Salk as an excellent speaker. I think it is an excellent speaker too (I rated it third in Wisconsin, and my favorite among the audiophile speakers) -- (though I'm not a huge fan of the center channel as it seems to be voiced differently than the towers) Anyway at the Des Moines blind meet the Noesis 212HT statistically tied the accoladed Salk for music and easily bested them for movies in unbiased blind voting of about 10 avsforum enthusiasts at a meet in DesMoines that dlbeck put on. We had a little mini-meet at carps house comparing the 212HT and the 228HT and three of the four people attending felt the 228HT was nearly if not exactly identical to the 212HT for movie performance towards reference volumes, though all four agreed the Noesis 212HT had some level of edge for music performance. Still at half the price -- and offering similar 'top choice" movie performance - the Noesis 228HT are an amazing value! I'm sorry I didn't communicate that more clearly - I will edit the first post to reflect such. My attempt at that comparison was nothing more than to validate value of the 228HT.Agenda?
Yes - to promote a great speaker at a intro (limited time) price, so that fellow enthusiasts can learn more about the product.Am I working for JTR?
- No - just a enthused owner! I get no kickback from JTR.
Where is it noted that you can't start a thread with a intro price in the title?Edited by Archaea - 2/20/13 at 7:18pm
