Let me first say, thanks for all the feedback and help with looking for a starter home audio system. Listened to a ton of manufactures in the last 3 days. People are not lying when they say "listen to them" before you buy. Today I spend 4 hours in my local HT store and left very satisfied. Listened to speakers from, Polk & Klipsch (two different HT shops) to Monitor, B&W, KEF and everything in between. Different music, Metallica, GnR & Adele, than scenes from Fantastic Four and Tron. What a difference in sound between all those Brands. All very good but one set blew me away. Here is what I settled on.
Fronts: Paradigm Mini Monitors (sound was simply amazing)
Center: Paradigm Cinema 400, (needed something slim-depth wise, to fit a on fireplace mantle) would have liked to go with full size center but didn't have the space.
Sub: Paradigm PDR-100 (only part im worried about. Sounded good, but not sure it has enough to fill my 15x20 room)
Receiver: Pioneer Elite SVX-40 (didn't have budget for Yamaha Advantage or Marantz)
Everything cost around $1500. Could have saved some probably by ordering some stuff online, but CS was excellent and its super close. Nice to have local people who care.
