Default Rom recommendations

I've rooted my HTC DNA months ago before switching to the note for battery life.

Never used Odin or anything before. HTC you have to s off to root and then use cwm to install roms.
I want the note 3 features and 4.3. My main goal is to remove the bloat but keep the note features. And I really want added battery life. It's nice now but I'm getting a Sony sw2 and I'll have Bluetooth on all day now. So need the battery to last without me switching to a backup battery every day.

What do people recommend me starting with on my first Samsung Rom?

I'm a big fan of CyanogenMod, but there are some volume issues on both bluetooth and wired connections that haven't been licked yet. My favorite ROM is Beanstown Jelly'Beans' as it has the stability and features of Samsung's stock software without the bloat and some extra tweaks baked in.

+1 for the JellyBeans recommendation. I was using that for several weeks up until today, when I decided to give it a break to try out PACman. I still have JB available as a restore file. If you're looking for something that resembles stock, go with an AOSP based ROM ( PAC man for example).

Did either of you read what he was looking for before answering? He wants something with note 3 features.

Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.

So instead of getting pissy w/ myself and the previous poster, how about YOU offer the OP some useful advice?
