Her voice oozes into the front left and right speakers and I can't tell you what a difference it is to have the same ultra high end compression driver across the front sound stage. Just crazy clear. Really is a night and day upgrade over my old Definitive setup. Also just put on the beginning of Transformers to here Optimus Prime and the thing that stood out the most was the very beginning when the Dreamworks fishing pole bobber hits the water with a crazy detailed and nuanced "curplop" - I know that sounds funny but I have never heard or paid any mind to that. I think it bodes well for the amount of additional detail and clarity I hope to hear as I listen more. And the depth and presence of his voice is insane. Crazy great upgrade! Can't wait to have more time to spend with it.

Pics attached with my new front sound stage (215 RT's and the custom 210 RM center).
I know!!! Now I pay more attention to the vocals.

I hear voices that I have never heard before... Ummm... Wait, that sounds weird... Argh, WTH...

The custom 210RM looks wicked! The woofer size to height (when laid down) ratio is awesome! I think many will appreciate this!

Speakers: L/C/R: JTR Noesis 212HT. Surrounds: Jamo C103, KEF Q100, Polk Audio RTiA3.
Subwoofer: JTR Captivator 4000ULF.

Man, the 215 towers make my 133” diag screen look so small in a picture.

Here is something interesting and not sure if anyone with a stock 210 RM can comment on. I know you can’t put a lot of trust in audessey, but it set my new center to full range! I imagine this may be room dependent as Jeff said it would have the same capability as the stock 210 RM. I am still crossing at 60 or above but interesting there might be more oomph in this little tank of a speaker than I anticipated.

Audy set my 212HTs to large as well and recommended a 40Hz crossover. I changed that to small and 80Hz.

I was using Polk LSiM 703s and Jamo C103s which are -3dB rated down to 50 and 45Hz respectively. When I switched over to the 212HTs running full range, I did not detect any 'loss' in the bottom end.

I finally finished my all JTR dedicated theater and listening room, just in time for quarantine!

The Little Black Box Theater - finished!

Spoiler: while it may not be a SOWK level room, it's by far the best sounding (and looking) room I've ever had and literally a dream come true. The speakers are a huge part of that, so thank you Jeff, and thank you everyone at AVS whose advice has helped make this a reality!
