I have a chance to buy some brand new lcr M &K s150's for a decent price. I currently have some old Paradigm Monitor 90P's and a Paradigm cc.
I would like some opinions if I should make this change, if it would be an upgrade.
Thanks

Those S150's were very highly regrded and one of the first to get Ultra certification IIRC. I think they retailed for $1750/pr.
If it's a good deal, I would jump on it.

When you say "brand new", do you mean from the old M&K regime, or the new one?

If it is the "new" regime, named MK Sound, then there is a huge question mark as to the performance of the S-150MKII, and if it matches the original in performance.

If from the original regime, the S-150 had/has one of the most revealing and detailed midranges available. A highly regarded speaker.

Didn't know there was a mk2 version. What did they change? MK sound that is

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

MK Sound, from my understanding, has none of the engineers from the old M&K. When M&K went out of business, the owners of MK Sound basically bought what was left of the company.

As for the new S-150MKII, as far as I know, nobody has compared it to the original. Nobody has said what has changed.

What is it that is lacking on your Paradigms? I know they can't play louder than 105 dBs at the speaker without significant distortion.
