I just had the pleasure of actually having the chance to listen to the Paradigm Monitor 9's and all I have to say these speakers sound sooooooooo
absolutely fabulous. I like to consider myself a Movieaudiophile who has never had the chance to audition high-end gear but what my ears heard gave my senses a eargasm.
I understand that not all power, amps, and recievers are created equal and neither are speakers but these are hot.
I'm actually looking to purchase the Monitor 11 v.6 but by the time I actually have the money, they'll probably have v.15. I'm just your everyday working guy who don't mind sacrificing to save to buy an investment like this.
I was looking at Def-Techs 1st, but I have to say I like the sound of the Paradigm's more. That is not a knock to Def-tech's but when I auditioned those(bp2006's), The only played Casino Royale and it sound good but not music was played. The Paradigm's played music but no movies(go figure), but I believe after hearing them play music, they should have no problems playing movies. Am I wrong and for those of you that have the Monitor's, how has your experience been with them as far as movie's and music?
I can let you know right now that I will be using these more for movies than music(70/30).
What receivers(s) and amps(if any) are you using???
