I am very interested in the center channel speaker being natural and full. My Def Tech sounds much better than most center channels that I have heard (mostly friends and in some stores).

My overall plan was Studio 60's CC-590, ADP-590 the sub I was going with a different company on that.

thanks

actually I found an interesting thread about the two right here

Klipsch or Paradigm
I find the Paradigms to be revealing without being cutting and harsh, especially in the higher frequencies. Klipsch's (especially their lower end models) tend to get nasally and brittle when pushed. I can't listen to Klipsch horns very long.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

thanks, I was looking at the RF-7II or RF-82II compared to the Studio 60's. From reading the other forum thread I am worried about dialog as it's always been an important part of a Home Theater setup.

The Studios are superior to the Klipsch RF line, that's for darn sure.

Newest additions to my basement home theater. My vinyl sounds amazing now...huge upgrade over the Atoms I had serving as my mains. The previous owner had them for about a year and gave me a very fair deal.

I should have listened to my dealer and purchased the 390 day one. By the way, I had to get the 390 off of US Audiomart because V7 came out shortly after I purchased V6. You'll be in a similar situation when the new studios hit the market.
I wonder if that should be my next upgrade, getting a center 1 or center 3? I've got CC-190 v5 with Monitor 7's (v6 perhaps) and Atom monitors v5. They told me Monitor 7's were the biggest fronts I could go with a CC-190.
