I recently added a 2 channel near field setup in small office (to play music from computer) Got Paradigm Mini Monitor V1 in the classifieds for $150 and paired with Onkyo TX-8255. I have the computer using a Nuforce Udac2 which I feed into the receiver using rca cable.
At first I was very disappointed as I found the bass over powering from the woofers. However after I reduced the bass using the manual bass control on the Onkyo, I am quite pleased. I can definitely recommend the Mini Monitors V1 for a budget setup. Im not sure if the bass issue is a result of my setup, but the sound is pristine after dialing down the bass output.
Has anyone else seen this issue with Paradigms being too bassy? Or was this something specific to Mini Monitor V1's. I'm sure my solution is not ideal, but I am happy with the end result.
