I was able to hang out in the awesome JTR room at Axpona last weekend also. I have a small room with low ceilings, so it's exciting to have the opportunity to witness the firepower Jeff brought to the big room at this event. I never counted the chairs in the room - 30, 40? There wasn't a bad seat in there. I think I've heard just about everything from the JTR lineup aside from the Growler, but this was my first meeting with the 212rt and the new 2400ulf, both impressive as I expected. I'm just echoing previous comments here, but the wall of ULF was killer and the surround bubble was huge and seamless. I am so impressed that you could hear and feel the bass in a room that big with probably 20' ceilings. We were there the first night so we didn't even get to hear the thing calibrated which was a bummer, but the sound was great and the light cannon DD brought in to demo was pretty cool too. I wish I had the chance to hear the 212rt with some 2 channel content, but this was one of the busiest rooms at the show and even the after hours pizza party and movie night had more people than anticipated. Go figure!
Great job putting the show together guys - I know it was a ton of work. I hope we get the chance to throw back a beer or 10 this summer Jeff!
We also visited the other JTR unofficial demo room at SOWK's place. Holy smokes! You know how to set up a room man. The sound, the PJ, the aesthetics in the room - this man even uses high-dollar cable risers to isolate his air-conditioner drain from the floor! (I'm not joking
). I have seen the photos of this room here and there and have always thought about how this old man is so detailed and everything looks so perfect, and wondered if he was just really good at photography. Archaea and I assumed that he has time to do this because is an elderly retired guy, but no, it really is that tidy and awesome in person and he is, in fact, younger than I and not retired. He also enjoyed making "old guy" jokes at my expense, which were all super hilarious. Thank you for worrying about me breaking a hip so much. I left you an Easter Egg though, some people call it an Upper Decker.
Thanks for having us over Tony, your HT is amazing and your skills in the build and calibration are A/V super hero level.
