I have the paradigm studio 60 and cc590. With my speaker trade in I get full credit for mine if I spend double. I'm going for an all McIntosh system. Mc205 and mx121. I heard the xr100 and was blown away. So I'm curious how the lcr80 compares to the cc590 and xr50 to the studio 60. The xr100 I would get last.
Will someone talk please?
If you're curious, why not go listen for yourself? Obviously no one has heard the Mcintosh and Paradigms side by side.
How many high-end brick and mortar dealers displaying McIntosh speakers are still standing in this country--3?
There's one near me but they only have the XR100.
I love those McIntosh XLR-340's (not sure if that is the correct model number?) compared to the Paradigms.
I auditioned the XR50, @$2,000 each they are in the high-end market, and might be out price range for what most are looking for. I think they are are high performance speakers, and really get loud. The manufactures specs and what I heard do not correlate.
The XR100s are great and sound as you'd expect. Its the surprise that the XR50s give up very little Output when compared.
