I recently went through a similar search. I ended up with Paradigm Studio 10's, but was also interested in PSB Imagine B's, Era D5's, and even Wharfedale Evo2-8's.
If you look at pictures of each you'll see something in common -- rounded cabinets. I really wanted something other than a "box", which is why I didn't consider Sierras or other highly-regarded speakers in this price range.
I picked the Paradigms for a couple reasons, first and foremost being they were the only ones I could actually audition! Secondly, I knew I could grow my system with Paradigm -- in other words, I'll always be able to find a matching center and another set of 10's for surrounds sometime down the road (whereas with the smaller brands, you can't be so sure). Third, they simply sound amazing and finally, they're a flat-out gorgeous speaker...
