Cool. Will do that. The Pinnacles vs JBL 590s.
That will be an interesting li'l shootout. Keep us updated, we love stuff like this!

Oh, and let us know when you get them in so we can give you some tips on how to do a proper comparison. Stuff like level matching, blind quick switching (if possible) and making sure you defeat any rc or eq.

Yeah. Those 6.5’s will really carry the midrange. It’s basically the same surface area as the ultras with dual 6.5’s and dual 8’s OR the 590’s with dual 8’s and a stellar compression tweeter.
BS and a sub. Blah blah blah…..
Yeah. Right.
Having dual subs like SVS PB 16's and two humungous size floor standers, in my opinion, is overkill. It just takes up too much unnecessary real estate.

Yeah but that's what works for you I can tell you I've tried both. And I prefer the floorstanders and subs vs the bookshelves versus subs. No comparison. But I an empathetic to the fact not everyone can fit get spousal approval or really have a big enough room to justify going that route. So I understand when people go that route. But your almost implying that bookshelves are a better route to go period. Hell no not if the room is big enough or you can get away with it. There is no replacement for the experience of highly capable towers matched with subs I've done both and if my space allows it monster towers and monster subs all day long baby!!!!

Well I give you that. To a point…
It depends. Imo, on room volume, seating distance, expectations, budget etc. this room iirc is 16x25. Subs and towers would easily fit in there. And would do a better job. Imo.

I’m with you Danno! I was just at my friends house. THIS is behind his AT screen. LCR are HTM-12’s. This system is so dynamic you have the experience to understand. First 12 minutes of Ready player one at -10mv. It’s like King Kong is a actually coming through the damn ceiling.
Book shelf speakers…need not apply.

It’s definitely been a journey. But you’re right, it’s an absolutely stunning HT experience. I haven’t had a chance to listen to any 2ch music yet but definitely will.

That would have been great. But sadly he is pairing this system to the 65" A90J that he plans to purchase during BF Sale next month.

But as I said he is gonna move into New home in 2-Years. And at that time (Specially after this crazy experience) he most probably gonna go for dedicated Home Theater setup. That is in addition to this.

Yeah dude. I think you could. I wanted to do CCT on it but ran outta time. I think it would be like sitting right in front of Danny.

What’s he got powering this up has to be amazing !
I bet you money it doesn't take as much power as you think. That's another advantage of big speakers paired with big subs. High sensitivity which usually means less power needed to make them speakers get LOUD

I know all my stuff looks big and huge to people who come to watch a movie but when it’s on at normal listening levels most people say wow as big as this rig is everything just disappears into the screen it’s big it’s immersive and they forget it’s all there that’s when I know I’ve done it right . And ya got to smile at that .
