So my wife just gave me the thumbs up to drop about $12k into our home theater. My room is about 14.5 x 30 feet.
I am was/am currently running:
2x Rocket RS850 Signature
1x Rocket RSC200 Signature
2x Rocket RSS300 Surrounds
Marantz 8002 AVR
EPSON PowerLite Pro Cinema 1080 UB
Carada 1.78 118' BW Criterion Fixed Screen
I'm actually pretty content with the visual portion of my equipment (for now), but due to a sump pump failure I have been without the RS850's for almost 2 years and just running with the center and surrounds. I've been researching and following several speakers on AVS and other enthusiast forums for a couple of years and have it narrowed down to JTR or Seaton speakers.
Based on first impressions I could go a couple of routes:
3x Neosis 212HT/LP
4x Neosis 228HT
1x Orbit Shift/Cap S2 (Not 100% sure on this yet)
3x Seaton Catalyst 12C
1x Submersive F2 Subwoofer
I was originally looking at either the JTR Triple 12's or Seatons, but with the Neosis coming out and some of the more recognized names on forums giving them such great reviews I now am less sure about which way to go. I don't want to feel the need to upgrade anytime in the future (I.E. 5-10 years out). For the subs I am looking for the "thump" in your chest feeling as a priority.
For those of you that have heard both, what are your opinions? On the same note, does anyone have any of these setups (or close to them) in the Cedar Rapids, IA area or a few hours drive available for a demo?
