The new 2010 Triple 8's a better speaker than the previous T8 and closer to the Triple 12's than in the past. The T12HT's still play lower and louder with better  mid bass than the T8's. The Quintuple 8's should be very competitive with the 12's. I'd really like to hear them but I'm just too happy with the current setup to bother.

I have heard the Revels at a good friend of mine's set up here in Mobile. I am eagerly waiting on the jtr show at the end of the month. I'm sure I won't go home empty handed...

Has it been 2 years already? <img src="/images/boards/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" align="absmiddle">

In any case, I discovered this thread again because of the link in the "list of reference level, high sensitivity speakers" thread on AVS. The link in that thread to this old JTR Forum thread was in reference to the superior sound quality of say the world class Revel Ultima series vs the pro audio derived Home Theater speakers like the JTR's.

In my expierence, the difference in sound quality is negligable very but the JTR's superior power handling and dynamics put them far ahead of the Revels for Home Theater use.

There have been several upgrades in the last two years including dual Orbit Shifters plus Slanted 8's as height and surround back speakers. These purchases were mentioned in other threads in this and other forums. The video side received the biggest (cost wise) upgrade with the addition of the JVC RS-35 projector and a 130" diag Seymour acoustically transpaternt sceen at the begining of last year. Lately, I have just been enjoying watching movies and concert blurays (gotta love bluray) with family & friends. The HT has become quite the draw and included some sports (Super Bowl was cool) of late. So beyond the objective changes to the system, the subjective love the sound impression this system gives is stronger than ever. It is really nice to know that I created a sound system that meets all my needs. Bottom line ... Very happy!

My intro to the "pro-audio" world came quite by accident. First it was a visit to a local pro-audio store for a balanced cable purchase. The owner gave me a demo of his full blown out door concert setup and I was astonished at the impact of all those watts running through very efficient speakers with big drivers. This was hardly the audiophile (glass of wine) setup I had created. This was JD on the rocks and lots of it.

Phase two was visiting an AVS forum member who like me had gone through the Audiophile speaker world (hemorrhaging cash all the way) looking for true theater sound. This guy produces motion pictures and he was serious about re-creating the movie experience in his home. He heard about JTR through Mark Seaton as Mark had worked with Jeff at ServoDrive (Tom Danley) and they (Jeff and Mark) had collaborated on the Triple-12LF design. It was this demo that really opened my eyes and ears to pro-audio.

I get it about how the system doesn't look as cool or pretty as it did with the Revel/Fathom, but the difference in sound is amazing. I had some neighbors over for a demo this weekend. They had heard and were impressed with the Revel/Fathom setup but everyone noticed the difference in both the quality and quantity of the sound.

Right now I am just enjoying the fruits of my labor and don't mind the look. The fix is relatively easy as I have the perfect setup for a false wall and an AT screen to hide all this industrial looking gear. The down side is I will need (want[wink]) a new projector and screen plus I will lose the Plasma. With video going through so many technology changes right now waiting will only benefit me in the long run. In the mean time, I am pretty darn close to my Mini IMAX dream system at least audio wise.
