Congrats! Hope you (and your wife) enjoy them. Pass on my apologies to her. But come to think of it, maybe I can buy some more speakers and blame you.

I'm interested to hear how you think they compare to the Revels. Do you plan to keep the JTRs & Revels afterwards, or only keeping the winner.?

I‘ll definitely follow up with my feedback once I’ve finished my testing. I’ll be keeping the winner and selling the other.

@jdubs75 What did you use to make your JTRs shine? Mine are rather dull compared to your photo.

Revel praise is plentiful and well deserved these days. But I believe the smooth clarity of those JTR's will surprise you! We'd love to hear which ones you favor.;)

Nothing really. Wiped them down with a microfiber. It’s probably just the way the recessed lighting is hitting them.

Happy Friday All! So after many hours of testing/ comparing the Revels vs the JTRs I'm sticking with the Revels. I had very high expectations for the JTRs. I really thought I was going to be blown away and not even question which speaker I was going to keep however I wasn't. There's just way more detail/ separation from the Revels within my room.

That said, the JTRs are available so if anyone is insterested let me know :)

Glad to hear you were easily able to determine which you preferred. If nothing else, you've scratched an itch. Sorry I encouraged that itch.

If you're still within the 30 day return period (or even a little over), it might be cheaper to simply return them to JTR and just be out the shipping charges instead of selling them. Just a thought.

Thinking about giving the RTJ 410 speakers a spin in my room and see how they stack up to the ML 15A stats. If you remember our speaker evaluation, the 15A and 210RT pretty much smoked the Revel PerformaBe F328Be speakers in my room. The 210RT speakers were the closest I've had in my room to what the 15A does in terms of huge and wide soundstage, precise imaging, and excellent depth acuity. We all thought that maybe the 215RT would be closer to the 15A with its larger waveguide... and the 410 is even larger. Very tempting. It would be so cool to have a complete JTR system, but the main course will have to step up with two-channel to get the full complement in the room.

You will be getting the subs with them, right?
I hope that your home is well constructed, the neighbors are far, pets already deaf, and the Mrs. extremely tolerant of the insanity. ;) Have fun and don’t hurt yourself moving ‘em around!

With six Captivator 2400 subs on order, I'm not sure I'll need the subs. I'll probably just get the stands.

The red rectangle is my room... and the arrow points to my closest neighbor. Keep in mind I had 10,000 watts powering eight 18" subs at one time in the past.

That pool is now an outdoor grilling patio.. this is a couple years old.

Not yet, but I did get the RS1 for my testing room today.

I hope the others are not far behind.
