    I recall saying to you you were going to buy the K2 S9900 over the Ultima Revels and you did!
    K2 S9900 is a real hi-end speaker

    1/ L212's

    2/ 250ti's

    3/ 1400 Array

    4/ 4365

    5/ 4340

    The 212's are very clean BUT only at lower volumes.
    L212 is so good ?

    What is 4340?

    4-way JBL sound on a budget :-)

    Still my favorite cheap JBL

    My Favorites would be:

    L112 - first "real" JBL's I ever heard and the sound stayed with me forever
    250Ti - bought sight unseen as L250, upgraded over the years, my reference
    XPL140 - a very refined speaker, would love to hear XPL200 someday
    M2 - only heard briefly in a terrible place (Harman NYC store on Madison) but wow...the dynamics
    LSR305 - shattering the price/performance barrier, my desktop PC rig hits new sonic heights

    4340 is the rare 4341 version ( mid high passive crossover network only)

    Interesting, though there appears to be a misprint in the network paragraph. It seems the 4340 is bi-amp only while the 4341 has a full 4-way network, as you pointed out.

    Thank you!

    That was an indeed a misprint - should be 4341. It was 40 years ago however they were fantastic sounding speakers. Smoother in the top end and faster than the 4350's IMO.

    Me first:
    1.k2s9800se balanced beautiful high end
    2.dd67000 hard to drive
    3.4367 acurate
    4.4355 classic sound
    5.4344mkii

    That's a great question for me right now. We've sold the house we occupied for 38 years and are gonna be moving into our retirement home. That means we really do have to choose. At the moment we have five systems, one in each of three bedrooms, one in family room, one in living room.

    Living RoomName:  IMG_0175.jpg
Views: 859
Size:  102.6 KB Everest DD67000
    Family Room - Array 1400
    Master Bedroom - L-220
    Second Master Bedroom (downstairs, where we sleep most of the time) - L-300
    Guest Bedroom - to be determined. Right now, there's a Bluesound package there, sub and two small speakers driven by Power Node.
    Two pairs Control 30s for front and back yards
    Garage - L-110

    No HT system but I may set one up in Guest Bedroom, with TV mounted on bottom of Murphy bed and covered by a pair of cabinet doors. Grandkids might be more interested in visiting with that setup in place. L-150s front and back if I do that.

    That just looks like pure hell. I mean, how can you keep the pair of 275's from melting the components above?

    Salon 2 vs DD67000

    Over on the AVS forum they organised a blind shoot out (with input from Floyd Toole) between the Salon 2 and the M2. The Salons were consistently preferred by the majority of testers. I've never heard the Salons, so I'm very curious as to how they compare to the DD6700s. Would love to hear comments from those who have heard / compared both.

    I’ve spent a fair amount of time comparing the DD66000 and the Salon 2 in the same room. The Salons definitely sound smoother and more neutral as well as having a deeper bottom end. That said they require a lot of power and just didn’t excite me. The DD67000 are a bit smoother with a better bottom end, but I imagine the comparison would be similar.
